Strong defensive line play keys Hinds Eagles to victory
 October 5, 2012

RAYMOND – The defensive line of Hinds Community College collected seven sacks and held Southwest Community College to -45 yards rushing on Thursday night to pick up their first South division win and get to the .500 mark on the season.

Hinds moved to 3-3 overall and 1-3 in the South division with the win, while Southwest remained winless at 0-5 overall and 0-4 in the South.

Dontrill Hyman (Warsaw, N.C.), a sophomore defensive end who made National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-Americans honors as a freshman in 2011, had 2.5 sacks, along with picking up three solo tackles and four assists on the night.

Risean Broussard (Lake Charles, La.), a freshman defensive lineman, was also a force for the Eagles with two sacks on the contest. He finished with two solo tackles and three assists and scored from 15 yards out on an interception early in the fourth quarter.

Quadarias Mireles (Boynton Beach, Fla.), a sophomore wide receiver, did it all for the Eagles offensively on Thursday night, finishing with 132 yards of total offense and three touchdowns. He had 86 yards and two touchdowns on 10 rushing attempts and caught seven passes for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Mireles got the scoring started for the Eagles with just under 11 minutes to go in the first quarter when he scored from four yards out. Tyler Poe (Pearl) nailed the PAT to put Hinds ahead, 7-0.

A 31-yards field goal by Poe just five minutes later and a 13-yard touchdown reception by Mireles put the Eagles ahead, 17-0, with 56 seconds left in the first quarter.

The Mireles touchdown pass was thrown by Anthony D’Angelo (Long Beach), who finished 18-26 for 197 yards and two touchdowns.

Southwest got on the board with 6:29 left in the first half when Turner Easterbrook connected with Korey Jones on a 94-yard touchdown pass. Paul Johnson made the point after to cut the Hinds lead to 17-7, which was the score heading to the break.

Easterbrook would find Jerome Stewart on an 18-yard touchdown pass with 7:43 left in the third quarter to cut the Hinds lead to three at 17-14, but it was all Eagles after that point.

D’Angelo would connect with Quantavius Leslie (Hogansville, Ga.) on a 44-yard TD pass with 16 seconds left in the third to move the lead to 24-14 after the Poe point after. Leslie had a monster night, catching eight passes for 135 yards and a score.

The previously mentioned Broussard INT for a score and Poe PAT put Hinds ahead, 31-14, and a 52-yard touchdown run by Mireles put the icing on the cake with 4:58 left in the game. 

Hinds finished with 351 yards of total offense on 56 plays (30 carries for 154 yards and 197 yards of passing), while the Bears ended the night with 317 yards of total offense (33 carries for -45 yards and 362 yards passing).

Kenya Dennis (Leland) had the best night of his Hinds career to date, tying with Hyman for the most tackles on the evening with eight (seven solos, one assist). He also recorded his first interception of his career with a pick late in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles will return home next Thursday for the final home game of 2012, hosting the Jones County Junior College Bobcats. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m. at Joe Renfroe Stadium in Raymond.
