October 27, 2011

With just two games remaining in the 2011 regular season, the West Point High School football team finds itself in an unfamiliar position; trying to rebound from a division loss.

For the first time in three seasons, the Green Wave dropped a Division 1-5A contest last Friday night in a 30-29 heartbreaker at Center Hill.

Despite the loss, head coach Chris Chambless and his Wave have moved forward, insisting that all of their goals are still within reach.

A new era at West Point

October 26, 2011

In last year’s first round of the 5A playoffs, West Point was out scored by Indianola-Gentry 20-8 in the overtime period. Their season ended rather quickly after making it to the postseason for the first time a while. That loss still sits on the players minds.

“ A lot of our seniors played a lot of minutes last year,” head coach Brad Cox said. “They weren’t just watching it, they were right in the thick of it.”

It’s a new season, and for several players coming back, it’s their last chance to make the most of their legacy wearing the green and white. Cox agrees.

Center of attention - West Point handed first district loss, 30-29 by Center Hill

October 22, 2011

OLIVE BRANCH - Three or four plays Friday night could have made all the difference.

For Center Hill, they made plays at the right time, converting on a trio of third downs late in the ball game and capped off a 73-yard drive with a 22-yard touchdown run by quarterback Jacob Marsh to upset West Point 30-29.

Dequinten Spraggins’ quarterback keeper with 14 seconds left to play fell just shy of the first down on the Green Wave’s final effort.

Kirk scores 21-unanswered points to top Oak Hill

October 22, 2011

GRENADA - A first half touchdown by freshman tailback Drake Riley wasn’t enough to give Oak Hill it’s first win on the season, as the Raiders stumbled on the road, 21-6 to Kirk Academy.

The loss is the ninth in a row for the Raiders who scored just their second touchdown in the last three weeks.
Looking to convert on fourth down in the second quarter, Kirk tired a little trickery with a fake punt only to be snuffed out by the Raiders defense.
