The West Point ninth grade football team found their defense in the second half of Thursday night’s game, at home, against the Yellowjackets of Starkville. The visitors, on the other hand, left their defense in Starkville, as a wild offensive display resulted in a 50-32 win for West Point and a district title for the Green Wave team.
“The kids played hard,” said Green Wave ninth grade coach Brian Sellers. “These kids have worked hard, they’ve earned it and they deserve it. “It’s because of their blue-collar mentality, which is what this town’s all about.”

There’s quite a bit of pressure off the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) compared to what they faced last Friday. They were coming off a big non-league loss to Lamar, trying to bounce back in the most important district game to date against Manchester Academy.
This week, the Raiders’ contest against Kirk Academy (2-6) does not have any direct playoff implications. The game, however, could effect how the Raiders play in their next district match, as they will spend the next two weeks getting ready for the final-week showdown against Winston.

The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1) are coming into tonight’s ball game with the Rams of Immanuel (3-5; 0-1) having spent the first seven games of the season struggling on offense.
The Eagles have managed to score only as many as 20 points twice this season, going 1-1 in those games.
This week, they will be facing a three-win team, but the good news for the Eagles is that the Rams have had their struggles scoring touchdowns as well.
Immanuel opened the season with a 41-6 loss to Hatley. That was followed by a 28-14 loss to Central Academy.

There are many teams across this state that have already received the bad news. They have lost key district games, and they will not be playing football beyond the final week of the regular season.
While times might seem tough for some of our area schools, Clay County is fortunate enough to be able to say that all three teams, the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1), the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) and the West Point Green Wave (6-1; 3-0) have not sealed their fate as far as the post-season is concerned.
