The last two times the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-4) took the field, they gave up 46 runs on each occasion.
The first was against a Benton Academy team that came into Pheba 0-3, and the second was to an Oak Hill team that entered their contest 0-4.
Since then, Benton and Oak Hill have won consecutive games. The Eagles are hoping they can get something of the same sort started on Friday night, as they enter district play at Central Holmes (2-4).

Hebron in first state tournament

Bayou got revenge for Saturday’s loss to Hebron on Monday. That loss was the first for the Lady Colts in North State Tournament play in five years.
The Lady Eagles would eventually fall to Bayou twice before the tournament was over, once 1-0 and the second time 11-0.
An 8-0 win over Tri-County finished off the winner’s bracket in the early-week games, and the Lady Eagles are set to play State Tournament ball on Saturday.

Trojans looking for revenge against Wave

West Point was a thorn in the side of the New Hope Trojans last season, to say the least.
The first time the Green Wave beat the Trojans in 2009, New Hope was undefeated at 4-0. West Point, in the middle of a 14 game winning streak themselves, broke that up.
Much later in the season, the two teams met up again. This time it was the third game of the playoffs. New Hope was looking to avenge the early-season loss, but they were soundly defeated again by the Green Wave 41-21.

Raiders coach: Zero turnovers key to game against Lamar

Two weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-4; 1-0) played a nearly perfect game on offense, not turning the ball over once against Hebron’s defense.
Last week, they were at home against Carroll, but they had a few mistakes, as turnovers proved costly in a close win.
This week, Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg says that the team will have to go back to the same type of play they saw at Hebron, in order to be successful against Lamar.
“We’re not going to be able to turn the ball over,” Gregg said. “We have got to hold on to that football on offense.”

“We played really well against North Delta,” said Oak Hill head coach Marion Bratton. “We looked like an entirely different ball club defensively.”

Hebron shocked the world on Saturday.

They defeated the Lady Colts 1-0, after tearing through Delta’s pitching for a 10-0 win to start the day.

One win, a 7-3 beating of North Delta, secured the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders’ spot in the state tournament.
With six teams (Oak Hill, Leake Academy, Carroll Academy, North Delta Academy and Canton Academy) playing in the Louisville event, the North State Tournament was full of great contests.
Oak Hill played three games on Saturday, losing the first to Kirk 9-0. They followed that with the only win of the afternoon for the Lady Raiders, the 7-3 victory. That would be followed by an 8-1 defeat to Canton.

Behind defense, Wave dominates at Indianola

It took West Point’s football team nearly three hours to get to Indianola for Friday night’s district opener against Gentry.
It took the West Point defense less than three minutes to take control of the game.
West Point forced Gentry to lose 13 yards on its first offensive possession and then tackled GHS punter Rufus Warren at his own 15-yard line, giving the Wave offense great field position and setting in motion a dominant performance in a 34-8 win.
