RAYMOND Pearl River Community College Wildcats defeated the perennial powerhouse Hinds Eagles for the first time since 2003 with a 2-1 road victory here Tuesday. Freshman Garrett Head of Oak Grove High scored goals in both halves to propel PRCC to the victory. Head first goal came midway in the opening half, but HCC James Cockrell tied it up minutes later and that 1-1 stalemate held true at the intermission. Head scored the game-winning goal off an assist by Pacer Frierson of Picayune High with 6:30 left in the game.
