The West Point Parks and Recreation Department kicked off its Peewee Football season on Tuesday night. Despite cloudy skies and a strong chance of rain, the bad weather held off for the four teams that went head-to-head.
âThe rain held out,â said Parks assistant director Jarrod McDaniel. âIt was a little damp, but it just settled the dust down.â
At 5:45, Sherman Berryâs team took the field against Leon Kelleyâs crew. Berryâs team defeated their opponent 26-0.
An hour later, Will Ketchumâs team defeated Tim Whiteâs bunch 20-6.
