For the second straight year, the West Point Green Wave had a chance to clinch the Division 1-5A championship with a win over Clarksdale.
And for the second straight year, that’s exactly what West Point did – but it wasn’t easy.
West Point weathered an early offensive storm and fought back from a halftime deficit to remain perfect in district play with a 26-17 Friday night, clinching a No. 1 seed in the Class 5A playoffs, which start in two weeks.

The 2010 season came down to Friday night for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (3-8; 1-2). Coming into the game against Winston (6-4; 3-0), the Raiders were evened up in district play, needing to win by seven points to get into the playoffs.
A great effort against a very physical Patriot club did not transpire into a victory for the Raiders, however, as Winston took the game and the district in a 41-7 victory.
“They just sort of blew us up defensively,” said Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg. “They were quicker than us, and stronger than us.”

After getting off to an 0-4 start, the Raiders knew that numbers were not the problem. They knew they were a better team than the one that showed up that first month.
