PEARL, Miss. (WTVA) -- It was an awesome day for area teams yesterday here at Trustmark, three games, three wins. And let's be serious, game one, even though East Union lost, it was not your average game.
Three weather delays and East Union's senior leader Carter Phillips was knocked out of the game after getting hit in the head by a line drive. Believe it or not, Carter is expected to play today.
He was taken to the hospital on Wednesday, he passed his concussion tests, then was taken to an ear specialist and despite taking a very hard line drive directly to the ear, no damage to the eardrum and he only needed a couple of stitches.
He's been a rock for the Urchins all season long and having his presence in the dugout will make a huge difference as East Union will try to keep its state championship dreams alive today at one o'clock.
A little bit of a scheduling update, because the 4A and 6A games were postponed on Wednesday and Saltillo and Booneville both won, if East Union forces a game three, that game will be played on Sunday morning, not Saturday.
