Friday night, the West Point High Green Wave travelled north to take on and defeat the Saltillo High Tigers.
First, a retraction from the game story last week. The final touchdown of last weekâ€™s game was scored by number 43; however, #43 is Brad Ewing.
This Friday, though, as with weeks in the past, many more players got a chance to stand out. Antonio Dent (#57), Lagarius Wordlaw (#12), Antreon Bennett (#26), Terrence Minor (#27) and the powerhouse Mario Virges (#20) each made huge contributions throughout the game.
The October 2012 term of Clay County Circuit Court concluded Thursday afternoon after several more sentencing orders were entered and after a few more cases were continued to the January 2013 and April 2013 terms of court.
The following pleas and sentences were handed down as of Oct. 9, 2012:
Former Lee County Correctional Officer Dustin Tutor of Mantachie joins the West Point Police Department staff as a patrol officer who holds an associateâ€™s degree in Criminal Justice and brings along several years of law enforcement experience.
Friday night gave the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (4-5; 1-3) something the team needed desperately. It was a 37-14 victory over New Site.
It had been nearly a month since Oak Hill came out on top in a match. That was a non-district home game against Winona on September 14.
Over the next three weeks, the Raiders fell consecutively to Canton (district), Leake (district) and Heritage. In the last two games, Oak Hill had been out-scored 84-0.
The Hebron Christian Eagles found themselves ending their road game stretch with a visit to Billy D. Cook Field on the campus of Calhoun Academy.
This was a battle of undefeated teams Friday night, and only one team could leave on the night with a perfect record. Hebron and Calhoun both left everything on the field in a very hard fought battle. Unfortunately, the ball bounced the Cougars favor more times than for the Eagles. Though the score does not reflect the true game, Calhoun Academy were the 40-12 victors on the night.
