Porters Chapel is reeling for two reasons.

One, the Eagles (3-1, 0-1) lost a District 4-A game to Newton Academy. Secondly, the injury bug hit PCA with another whack, as Peter Harris went down with a neck stinger and had to be taken to a hospital in Meridian.

The good news, like the bad news, is two fold. The first is that Park Place is in its first year playing 11-man football and the second is that Harris will be back in the Eagles’ lineup.
