FireAnts take on Champs Friday
06/08/03 FireAnts Press Release
The Tupelo FireAnts (1-9) after a break from the action last week, will take on the defending National Indoor Football League champion Ohio Valley Greyhounds (10-0) this Friday night at the BancorpSouth Center. The Greyhounds are coming off of a 44-38 win at Myrtle Beach this past Saturday night.
This is the first game of a three-game home stand in which the FireAnts will face two division leaders (Ohio Valley and the Lake Charles Land Sharks). Tupelo will be led by multi-faceted offensive threat Darryl Carter, who has played wide receiver, running back, and quarterback so far this season, and the combo of Eric Bingham and Ricky Franklin on defense. Ohio Valley will be led on offense by outstanding quarterback Shane Franzer and on defense by powerhouse defensive lineman Eddie Bynes.
Friday’s game kicks off at 7:05pm at the BancorpSouth Center in Tupelo. To order individual tickets, call the Box Office at 841-6528.
