The West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) are riding high going into the first week of the playoffs. The Provine Rams (5-6; 4-3) are riding pretty high themselves.
Winners of four of their last five, the Rams overcame a slow start to the 2010 season to secure a playoff spot after a four-game winning streak in the district catapulted the Rams into the playoffs.
They did fall in last week’s league game against 11-0 Ridgland team, but that was the first loss for the Rams since October 1 at Pear.

The Hernando Tigers (7-5; 4-3) had to beat the West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) on Friday night, in order to get into the playoffs. The Tigers felt good going into the half, trailing 7-0 to the red hot Wave, but hopes of a comeback were crushed by a stellar effort from LaKenderic Thomas in the second half.
West Point finished the night on top 21-14, sending Hernando home with its third district loss.
“They’re a good football team,” said West Point head coach Chris Chambless. “We knew they were going to give us their A-game and their best shot tonight.”

Tigers could not stop Thomas on the ground

LaKenderic Thomas sure knows how to put the cap on a good season. The senior running back for the West Point Green Wave had a terrific night on the ground, accounting for 262 rushing yards on 26 carries.
Three of those 26 carries made it into the end zone for touchdowns, as he helped lead the Green Wave to a perfect district record in 2010.
“He’s a machine,” Chambless said. “He runs the ball extremely hard, and he has a great attitude. He keeps everybody pumped up and ready to go.”
