Halloween is not until Sunday, but the West Point Green Wave (8-1; 5-0) football team’s magic number is one. If West Point wins, they are district champions. If New Hope loses, the Green Wave are champs.
West Point would much prefer the first scenario to the latter.
“We’re going to try an sow up the district this week,” Chambless said. “If we win, then we’ll be district champs, and that’s been our goal all along.”

The 2010 season has been one of ups and downs for the Raiders of Oak Hill Academy (3-8; 1-1).
They were written off by most early on, losing the first four games of the regular season. What the doubters did not count on was a resurgence in the middle of the season that included a conference win against Carroll that put the Raiders right back into the playoff hunt.
After getting that first conference win, the Raiders were feeling really good about their playoff chances. They went into their second district game, up against a winless Manchester team.

This fall has been unseasonably warm, and no group has felt the heat worse than our area football players.
For some, tonight will be the last game of the season, but everyone who plays this evening will welcome some cooler skies.
While rain has not played a big factor in Friday night football this year, heat certainly has.
Tonight, the weather is predicted to be much cooler, with a high at around 68 degrees.
The low is expected to dip down to 34 degrees, making game time much more comfortable for players and fans.
