VARDAMAN - For the second consecutive game, Rico Robinson came off the bench to lead West Point in points with 17.
It just so happens the Green Wave won again 77-45 over North Pontotoc Saturday, giving them plenty of momentum heading into tonightâ€™s district battle with Oxford.
Using the same philosophy from Friday nightâ€™s win over Caledonia which snapped a three-game losing skid, the Green Wave stayed true to being aggressive on defense with the press and forcing turnovers which in turn led to points.
GRENADA - Fridayâ€™s loss to North Delta really gave the Oak Hill Raiders a bad attitude. So bad, they put up their best defensive performance of the season on Saturday in a 53-12 victory over Indianola.
â€śIt was the best we defended all year,â€ť head coach Stan Hughey said. â€śWe didnâ€™t defend very well Friday, we talked about that and we came out really intense on defense.â€ť
The Lady Raiders 16-5, led by Tori Ellis with 14 points, quickly grabbed a 15-6 lead in the first quarter. And by halftime, the girls had a 35-10 lead.
Louise Starks, age 71, passed away Friday, Jan. 6, 2012, at North Mississippi Medical Center of West Point.
