Last Friday night, The Raiders of Oak Hill Academy (3-6; 1-1) put on the best defensive show of the year for the home crowd in a 14-12 win over Kirk Academy. This week, they will face a tough Marshall Academy (6-2) team that will be Oak Hill’s final home game of the season.
That means that Friday night’s game will be senior night. A pre-game ceremony will honor Doss Miller and Jordan Hawkins, the two seniors on Oak Hill’s 2010 roster.

The last two 5A Region 1 matches for the Green Wave of West Point High School (7-1; 4-0) have been close. A 22-20 win over Oxford two weeks ago was followed up with Friday night’s 28-27 win over Lake Cormorant, on the road.
This Friday night, the Green Wave will return home to take on the Tigers of Saltillo (3-5; 0-4). The Tigers are still looking for their first district win of the 2010 season.

There is little doubt that the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-7; 0-2) played their best game all year on Friday night. Still, a 22-14 lead in the middle of the fourth was not enough get them past the Rams of Immanuel.
That game, in particular, was also the most important of the season for the Eagles. It was their chance to get back in the district race, after falling to Central Holmes two weeks before in their first district match.

Livingston gives Oak Hill taste of the future

During the second half of Friday night’s game between Oak Hill and Kirk, home Raider Bo Sanford was spelled on offense for most of the last two quarters.
The Oak Hill standout remained in the game to play defense, but Raider head coach Leroy Gregg said that the rusher was too banged up to make a lot of cuts with the ball in hand. He was able to run north and south, but when it came to cutting with the ball, it was too painful.

Wave survives another division scare

October 16, 2010

For the second straight week, the West Point Green Wave needed to turn away a last-second two-point conversion in order to stay unbeaten in district play.
One week after surviving a 22-20 scare against Oxford, the defending 5A state champs found themselves in a similar dogfight Friday night, as homestanding Lake Cormorant scored with 1:53 left in the game to close to within a point.
Eschewing the chance at tying the game, Cormorant went for the win, and West Point defensive back Jaquille White forced an incomplete pass to help the Green Wave escape again, this time with a 28-27 win.

Oak Hill slides past Kirk 14-12

October 16, 2010

Sports Editor
Friday night’s Oak Hill-Kirk game was not a district match. There were no direct playoff implications for either team, but for the Raiders of Oak Hill (3-6; 1-1), this game was just about as important as any they’ve played this year.
Coming off a dismal performance at Manchester the week before, the Raiders had to have a boost in confidence. With two games to go before facing Winston for a shot at winning district, there was no way the Raiders could go into that game with the level of play or confidence they had in Yazoo City.

“It was a heartbreaker,” said Hebron head coach Greg Watkins. “We played real good ball.”
The Eagles led most of the game, thanks to a pair of touchdown runs by Marques Robinson and a 65-yard touchdown rush by Jay Shaw.
