As soon as Friday night’s quarterfinal victory over Oxford was complete. West Point head coach Chris Chambless had one message for his football team.
“We’ve got one more game to get to where we want to go, and that game is at our house, in front of the best fans in the state,” Chambless said in the postgame huddle.
Upon hearing those words, the Green Wave erupted in cheers, knowing their road to play for a second straight state championship has just one more stop.
And more importantly, that road goes straight through West Point.

Things got ugly early for the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders on Monday night. Facing the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers, Oak Hill had trouble getting the ball to the net in the first three quarters, so much an 18-point fourth could not help them overcome the early deficit.
The Lady Raiders just had one of those nights. They put the shots up, but few fell in.
Just four points were scored by Oak Hill in the first quarter. All the while, Starkville was scoring at will, amassing 15 points in the opening period.
