Long Cane, Callaway meet for middle-school title

LAGRANGE – A championship will be on the line at Long Cane Middle School this afternoon.

Long Cane and Callaway Middle School each won their semifinal games last week, and they’ll square off today at 4:30 p.m. in the league championship game.

It will be the third meeting of the season between the two teams.

Long Cane won the first game 38-14, but Callaway rebounded and won the second game 24-12.

Callaway began the season 0-3, but it has won five straight games since then, including last week’s semifinal showdown against Valley.

Long Cane had its hands full with Gardner Newman in its semifinal game last week, and it survived to win in overtime.
