Green Wave hope to end streak, top Jackets

September 8, 2011

Same week, different date.
Starkville High School did the unthinkable September 10, 2010, defeating the Green Wave 21-20. It was the only loss for West Point before they won 12 in a row on their way to a second consecutive 5A state title.
History, fans hope, won’t repeat itself tonight when the two teams meet under different circumstances.
The Green Wave have started 0-2 for the first time since 2000 while the Yeallowjackets are coming off back-to-back wins over Madison Central and Tupelo.

Hebron looking for repeat win

September 8, 2011

Hebron takes the filed Friday night for the first time in front of their home fans.
Just four weeks into the season and the Eagles are 1-1 coming off last weeks 48-8 over Calvary Christian. Head coach Tri Nason said he’s a hard time on occasions trying to keep his team focused for this week because they are still excited after that first victory.
“There still a little bit excited, I’m trying to get them to forget it but they haven’t forgotten it yet,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll be calmed down a little by Friday.”

Raiders still searching for a win

September 8, 2011

A new and improved Manchster Academy rolls into West Point tonight trying to keep up their impressive start to the season while Oak Hill Academy are still trying to correct the mistakes they’ve been making all season long that have kept them winless thus far.
“We found out who wanted to be here and who doesn’t this week,” head coach Benjie Merchant said. “We’ve had some good practices but we’re still searching for our identity.”
Mental mistakes on snaps as well as poor coverage and missed tackles have plagued the Raiders since week one.
