The Oak Hill Lady Raiders (2-2) came into Tuesday night’s game against Lamar, fresh off a loss to North Delta at the Indianola Tournament. Unfortunately, the Lady Lions were able to extend Oak Hill’s losing streak, dropping them 42-40.
“We should have won the ball game,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey. “We just didn’t do what we needed to do to win it.”
The Lady Raiders kept the game close, but in the end, they could not get over the hump and grab the lead before the final buzzer.

The West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) are riding high going into the first week of the playoffs. The Provine Rams (5-6; 4-3) are riding pretty high themselves.
Winners of four of their last five, the Rams overcame a slow start to the 2010 season to secure a playoff spot after a four-game winning streak in the district catapulted the Rams into the playoffs.
They did fall in last week’s league game against 11-0 Ridgland team, but that was the first loss for the Rams since October 1 at Pear.
