OLIVE BRANCH - Three or four plays Friday night could have made all the difference.
For Center Hill, they made plays at the right time, converting on a trio of third downs late in the ball game and capped off a 73-yard drive with a 22-yard touchdown run by quarterback Jacob Marsh to upset West Point 30-29.
Dequinten Spragginsâ€™ quarterback keeper with 14 seconds left to play fell just shy of the first down on the Green Waveâ€™s final effort.
GRENADA - A first half touchdown by freshman tailback Drake Riley wasnâ€™t enough to give Oak Hill itâ€™s first win on the season, as the Raiders stumbled on the road, 21-6 to Kirk Academy.
The loss is the ninth in a row for the Raiders who scored just their second touchdown in the last three weeks.
Looking to convert on fourth down in the second quarter, Kirk tired a little trickery with a fake punt only to be snuffed out by the Raiders defense.
