After a two-hour bus ride to Batesville, Mississippi, the Raiders knew it would be an all or nothing battle ahead of them against the MAIS AA #4 North Delta Green Wave. Oak Hill hoped to play the role of giant killers on Friday night in the first-round playoff clash.
Score early, score late and dominate all four quarters on defense is one way to get the job done in football.
The West Point Green Wave (9-2; 7-0) employed that strategy on Friday night, defeating the New Hope Trojans 38-7.
This concluded the Green Wave 2012 regular season, one that boasts nine strong wins, seven of which were division victories, including a district clincher last week against Oxford.
West Point finds itself in what has become the norm for the Green Wave program over the past few seasons. The team will enter into the first round of the playoffs next week at home.
