West Point crowd a factor on long road trip

August 30, 2010

It’s now safe to say that everybody who paid to see Friday night’s showdown between the Green Wave of West Point and the Mainland Buccaneers got their money’s worth.
It didn’t matter if these fans never saw the beach or the beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic. It didn’t matter that the 40 percent chance for rain at Daytona turned into a dismal 100 percent reality as the game kicked off. The West Point fans, and Mainland alike, were treated to some of the best football the Southeast has to offer on Friday nights.

Every player was exhausted, the sun was three hours gone, and the rain was falling hard, but the West Point football team was going to the beach anyway late Friday night.
The reason? It was a reward for one of West Point’s biggest regular season wins in years.
Behind a stout defensive effort and bruising ground game, West Point won its 16th straight game here Friday night with a 14-0 shutout victory over Daytona’s Mainland High.
