Raiders hold off Green Wave

December 12, 2011

BATESVILLE - Oak Hill never trailed in Saturday’s ball game against North Delta Academy.
A 22-point first quarter performance didn’t hurt their chances either as the Raiders downed the Green Wave 46-42 to pick up their second win in a row and second this season over North Delta.
It’s the second time this season the Raiders, 7-6, 1-1 have won back-to-back games since a three game streak in November with victories over Heritage, Carroll and North Delta.

West Point loses double header to Neshoba

December 12, 2011

MACON - West Point’s girls basketball team didn’t have a single player score in double digits Saturday as the Green Wave dropped their second in a row 60-35 to Neshoba Central in the Noxubee County Invitational.
Wilma Davis and Adrianna Billups had eight points apiece to lead the girls who “came out flat” head coach Murray Woody said.
“We just didn’t play well, we couldn’t get any shots,” he said. It was their fourth loss in the last five games.
The Green Wave (5-6) were held to just six points in the opening quarter, and by halftime the deficit grew to 13-points, 29-16.

After scoring 23-points in the opening quarter, Oak Hill (11-3) never trailed in the ball game and by half time had a comfortable 41-14 lead.

West Point girls snap losing skid

December 10, 2011

On any given night, you can find Wilma Davis scoring at least 10-points, most nights its a little more.
Friday, the senior finished with 15 to help stop a three-game losing streak following a 68-51 win over Aberdeen.
Head coach Murray Woody said her confidence has been a little shaken lately, but that hasn’t stopped her leading the team in scoring every night.
“I keep telling her, ‘keep shooting, because shooters go through slumps’,” he said.
If her 15-points was a slump, it was enough to help West Point (5-5) get their first victory in almost two weeks.

Eagles stop skid, Lady Eagles win five straight

December 7, 2011

Hebron Christian earned their first conference win of the season in the heels of a defensive effort that netted 22 total steals, 49-39 over Calhoun Academy.

The victory snapped another two game skid for the Eagles who improved to 5-4 on the season and 1-1 in 3A action.

“It was a slow defensive game, both of us were in a zone,” head coach Tri Nason explained. ‘Once we started shooting from the outside, they switched to man and that loosened them up the rest of the game. We started stealing, driving and making easy lay-ups.”

West Point breaks three game losing streak at the line

December 7, 2011

MACON - West Point sophomore Tre Williams had 11-points in the Green Wave’s 68-65 win over Noxubee County Tuesday night.

No, he wasn’t the leading scorer, but when it comes to being clutch, he was almost perfect.

Trailing by four with three minutes left to play, Noxubee were almost in panic mode to try and mount a come back. Williams, who came in the game after Cortez Malone fouled out, was 5-of-6 from the free-throw line with under a minute left to play to ice the victory. He finished 6-of-8 in the fourth quarter.

Lions secondary ready to reload for national title defense

December 7, 2011

SCOOBA – Before East Mississippi hoisted their first ever football national championship, the coaches knew it was going to be a slugfest. Both the Lions and Matadors were ranked nationally in offense and featured some of the country’s top talent in every position.
EMCC secondary coach Clifton Collins knew it was going to be a battle from the opening kickoff.
“They got some great players on offense,” he said. “We’re not taking anything away from what they can do, but we made some mistakes and took some bad angles against their running back and he scored four touchdowns on us.”
