Win over Immanuel, losses elsewhere earn Raiders Wild Card spot in 2012 playoffs

October 27, 2012

First thing’s first.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (6-5; 2-3) had to defeat Immanuel Christian (3-7; 0-5) on Friday night to even have a shot at a playoff berth.

October 24, 2012

Sometimes a team has to face the very best early on in order to be ready for greater challenges down the road.
This could be said for the 2012 West Point Green Wave (7-2; 5-0) who will face perhaps their toughest challenge on Friday night when the undefeated Oxford Chargers (9-0; 5-0) come into town.
It’s not certain if the Chargers will be the best team West Point has faced this year, but Oxford comes to town a district challenger, with the district on the line.
Neither team has lost a district game to date.
