The West Point Green Wave (5-4; 3-2 District 1-5A) scored 29 unanswered points in the second-half to defeat district opponent Saltillo, 43-22, after trailing by eight points at halftime in a MHSAA contest Friday at Hamblin Stadium in West Point.
Recovering a Saltillo onside kick to start the third-quarter, the Wave marched behind five Aeris Williams carries to later find pay dirt on a Quincy Starks' 21-yard touchdown carry. The touchdown run sparked the second-half rally.

PHEBA — Hebron Christian (6-3; 3-0 District 7-A) scored three touchdowns with runs from seniors Justin Gordon and Brandon England in its first five offensive plays en route to a shellshocking win over Friendship Christian, 52-6, in a MAIS non-district eight-man tilt on the campus of Hebron Christian School as a part of senior night.
"I had good effort from my guys," Hebron Christian Head Coach David Foster said. "We spread the ball around running it and we got to play a lot of our younger guys. I think we are a different ball club than we were when the season started."

Indianola defeats Hebron Christian

October 23, 2013

DTL staff

WINONA — The Indianola Lady Colonels (1-0 preseason) defeated Hebron Christian 60-24 in a MAIS sanctioned preseason contest Monday on the campus of Winona Christian School.
“We didn’t play well at all,” Hebron Head Coach Bruce Franks said. “We didn’t shoot well and we turned the ball over too much. Indianola was a really good team to start as the first game. We are going to have to learn to set tempo and make less turnovers to get to where we need to be this season.”
