Hazlehurst started the MHSAA 3Aplayoffs with a rare Thursday night game against the Crystal Springs Tigers.  The Indian fans slowly filled Robert McDaniel Statuim as the game started.

The defenses dominated almost the entire first half, as both offenses struggled to find rhythm after the short week of practice.  The only score of the first half came by the Indians with 1:57 left in the first quarter.  Ladarrius Williams, the quarterback, ran the ball in for the touchdown. The two-point conversion was no good, and Hazlehurst lead 6-0.
