Raider mistakes seal district loss to Mavs

There’s no doubt that the Manchester Academy Mavericks (1-6; 1-1) were overdue for a win this season. They’d run into some tough love in the first half of the year, and while possession one of the top players in Academy football (Matt Peaster), it was only a matter of time before they exploded for a win.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) were just hoping that explosion would hold off at least one more week, as they traveled to Yazoo City to take on the Mavs on Friday night. They were defeated 32-20.

Two months ago, the position of Ground Supervisor came open at the West Point Parks and Recreation Department. When director James Crowley began his search for the person who would be over the youth sports games, he needed someone dependable and hard working. He found that person in the form of Clyde Hopkins.
Hopkins had been a full-time umpire for Crowley, but he was also known for his dedication while working for the Public Works department as a garbage truck driver.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) had a rough start to the 2009 season, but there is a good chance that they will have rebounded themselves into a playoff spot, if they can defeat the 0-6 Manchester Mavericks tonight, on the road.
“It’s the most important game of the year for us,” said Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg earlier this week.
Gregg went on to say that the implications of a win tonight would be a playoff spot for the Raiders, who started the 2010 season 0-4.
