Eight turnovers doom Raiders at home

September 22, 2012

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (3-3;1-2) offense has had its struggles thus far in 2012, but Friday night’s home match against Canton was the roughest outing yet for the team.
Eight turnovers, including seven fumbles and a lone interception, would make all the difference in a 48-15 Tiger win over the Raiders.
“You can’t turn the ball over seven times against a good team like Canton,” said head coach Daniel Merchant after the game.

Green Wave and Noxubee Review

September 17, 2012

No one who was present at Hamblin Stadium on Friday night could say that both West Point High School and Noxubee County High School didn’t play their hearts out down on McCallister Field.

Both teams came out and played their games. The Noxubee defense was impenetrable most of the night, and it certainly was when it really counted. West Point was not allowed a single point, and with the exception of the lone touchdown of the game, the Green Wave defense played virtually flawlessly, as well.

The action words for Friday night’s game were “grit” and “determination.”

West Point falls 6-0 in defensive gem at home

September 15, 2012

Friday night saw an incredibly hard-fought loss for West Point. In what was an almost entirely defensive game against Noxubee County, West Point struggled for every inch of the field gain on offense and dug in deep to keep as much of the field as possible on defense.
