    The Wesson Cobras won a huge contest last Tuesday evening beating St. Andrew’s on the road for the first time in Coach Ron Kessler’s tenure at Wesson 42-34.  The Cobras also dropped a 12 point loss to the McLaurin Tigers while the high school girls dispatched both teams easily in route to a perfect district record.
    “The win at St. Andrew’s was big for us,” stated head coach Ron Kessler.  “We really handled that hostile environment very well and won there for the first time.”
