The Oak Hill Raiders (0-1) were hoping the season would have gotten off to a better start than it did on Tuesday night. The Raiders gave up a lot of early points, recovering to within four twice, but they would eventually drop the game to Lamar 68-59.
“We came out a little shell shocked,” said Oak Hill head coach Brian Middleton. “They were huge and we let them get on us early.”
In the first half, the Raiders let Lamar get a 19-point advantage, before staging a late rally.

The Oak Hill Lady Raiders (2-2) came into Tuesday night’s game against Lamar, fresh off a loss to North Delta at the Indianola Tournament. Unfortunately, the Lady Lions were able to extend Oak Hill’s losing streak, dropping them 42-40.
“We should have won the ball game,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey. “We just didn’t do what we needed to do to win it.”
The Lady Raiders kept the game close, but in the end, they could not get over the hump and grab the lead before the final buzzer.

“We got in foul trouble early,” said Lady Green Wave head coach Jemmye Ann Helms. “We didn’t do bad defensively. We had a couple kids who hurt us for Houston, but overall the team did alright on defense.”

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.”

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.”
