Oak Hill out-guns Rebels in 45-41 win

September 25, 2010

At times it was ugly.
The first half of Friday night’s conference battle between the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-4; 1-0) and the Carroll Academy Rebels (2-3; 0-1), at times, looked like a wild west shootout.
The two teams exchanged fire and they exchanged touchdowns. At the end of the third quarter, it looked like a sure win for the Raiders, but by the middle of the fourth, the Rebels shot their way back into the fray.
It went down to the wire, but Oak Hill finally won its second game of the season, a 45-41 victory over the Rebels.

Tapleys to take the field together for the last time during the upcoming playoffs

Sometime in the next two weeks, Magen Tapley is going to walk off the softball field for the final time as a Hebron Christian Lady Eagle.
She is one of seven seniors who will be leaving the team this year. For Magen Tapley, the trip off the diamond might be a little more emotional. There may be a few extra tears when she looks back on the opportunity she’s had.
A middle infielder, Magen has had the chance to not only play behind her sister, Chloe, who is Hebron’s starting pitcher, but she has learned a lot of what she knows about softball from her father.

Raiders looking to keep streak alive

Things are looking up for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (1-4). For the first time this season, the team that started the year with 17 players on its roster, will be going into a game with a win under its belt.
This game, which features Carroll Academy (2-2) here in West Point will be the Raiders’ first look at conference play in 2010.
Carroll has had a good offense at times this season, but they have struggled defensively. This could prove to be a difference maker when it comes to tonight’s game.
