As soon as Friday night’s quarterfinal victory over Oxford was complete. West Point head coach Chris Chambless had one message for his football team.
“We’ve got one more game to get to where we want to go, and that game is at our house, in front of the best fans in the state,” Chambless said in the postgame huddle.
Upon hearing those words, the Green Wave erupted in cheers, knowing their road to play for a second straight state championship has just one more stop.
And more importantly, that road goes straight through West Point.

The Lady Raiders just had one of those nights. They put the shots up, but few fell in.
Just four points were scored by Oak Hill in the first quarter. All the while, Starkville was scoring at will, amassing 15 points in the opening period.
