Green Wave roll past Saltillo on the road

October 13, 2012

Friday night, the West Point High Green Wave travelled north to take on and defeat the Saltillo High Tigers.
First, a retraction from the game story last week. The final touchdown of last week’s game was scored by number 43; however, #43 is Brad Ewing.
This Friday, though, as with weeks in the past, many more players got a chance to stand out. Antonio Dent (#57), Lagarius Wordlaw (#12), Antreon Bennett (#26), Terrence Minor (#27) and the powerhouse Mario Virges (#20) each made huge contributions throughout the game.

Raiders get needed 37-14 win against New Site

October 13, 2012

Friday night gave the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (4-5; 1-3) something the team needed desperately. It was a 37-14 victory over New Site.
It had been nearly a month since Oak Hill came out on top in a match. That was a non-district home game against Winona on September 14.
Over the next three weeks, the Raiders fell consecutively to Canton (district), Leake (district) and Heritage. In the last two games, Oak Hill had been out-scored 84-0.

Hebron suffers first loss to Calhoun

October 13, 2012

The Hebron Christian Eagles found themselves ending their road game stretch with a visit to Billy D. Cook Field on the campus of Calhoun Academy.
This was a battle of undefeated teams Friday night, and only one team could leave on the night with a perfect record. Hebron and Calhoun both left everything on the field in a very hard fought battle. Unfortunately, the ball bounced the Cougars favor more times than for the Eagles. Though the score does not reflect the true game, Calhoun Academy were the 40-12 victors on the night.

The Race to the Finish Begins

October 10, 2012

Of the more exciting times associated to the regular season of football, it would be hard to make a determination as to which is as the highest level: the weeks leading up to the season’s beginning or the weeks leading toward season’s end.
For the players, coaches and fans of the three local schools, the responses to this are all over the board.

Green Wave’s younger generation

October 3, 2012

Whether it be the junior varsity squad or the second string on varsity, playing time for the younger members of a school team is extremely important for the longevity of a program.
In last Friday’s game against the Hernando High School Tigers, the Green Wave was able to put enough points up on the board to afford Coach Chris Chambless the opportunity to put some of his younger players into the the game, including sophomore Dason Thomas (#9), sophomore Josh Ewing (#2), and junior Jayson Burnett (#7).

Weekend football in review

October 1, 2012

West Point and Hebron move forward, Oak Hill stumbles a bit this week.
The Green Wave went on a Tiger hunt in the wilds of Hernando on Friday night. The trip yielded great results as the West Point team was able to make quick work of Hernando.
It was a rare night for the younger players on the Green Wave football team in that because the Tigers proved so tame, the second and third string players got a chance to add a more points to the victory.
