The Oak Hill Lady Raiders (2-2) came into Tuesday night’s game against Lamar, fresh off a loss to North Delta at the Indianola Tournament. Unfortunately, the Lady Lions were able to extend Oak Hill’s losing streak, dropping them 42-40.
“We should have won the ball game,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey. “We just didn’t do what we needed to do to win it.”
The Lady Raiders kept the game close, but in the end, they could not get over the hump and grab the lead before the final buzzer.

They just kept battling.
The Green Wave of West Point (2-0) continued their solid play in the early part of the 2010-2011 season on Tuesday night, outlasting the Hilltoppers of Houston 67-65.
“We played hard,” said West Point head coach Brad Cox. “The game was close. Neither team ever got up by much.”
The West Point offense came out on fire, scoring 17 points in the first quarter. The defense played solid enough to hold Houston to 12 points, taking a five point lead into the second period.

West Point got off to a good start last Saturday with a win at the West Point Classic, but they were unable to take that success over into Tuesday night’s contest with Houston. The Lady Hilltoppers sneaked past the Lady Green Wave 51-54.
“We got in foul trouble early,” said Lady Green Wave head coach Jemmye Ann Helms. “We didn’t do bad defensively. We had a couple kids who hurt us for Houston, but overall the team did alright on defense.”

The West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) are riding high going into the first week of the playoffs. The Provine Rams (5-6; 4-3) are riding pretty high themselves.
Winners of four of their last five, the Rams overcame a slow start to the 2010 season to secure a playoff spot after a four-game winning streak in the district catapulted the Rams into the playoffs.
They did fall in last week’s league game against 11-0 Ridgland team, but that was the first loss for the Rams since October 1 at Pear.

The Hernando Tigers (7-5; 4-3) had to beat the West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) on Friday night, in order to get into the playoffs. The Tigers felt good going into the half, trailing 7-0 to the red hot Wave, but hopes of a comeback were crushed by a stellar effort from LaKenderic Thomas in the second half.
West Point finished the night on top 21-14, sending Hernando home with its third district loss.
“They’re a good football team,” said West Point head coach Chris Chambless. “We knew they were going to give us their A-game and their best shot tonight.”

LaKenderic Thomas sure knows how to put the cap on a good season. The senior running back for the West Point Green Wave had a terrific night on the ground, accounting for 262 rushing yards on 26 carries.
Three of those 26 carries made it into the end zone for touchdowns, as he helped lead the Green Wave to a perfect district record in 2010.
“He’s a machine,” Chambless said. “He runs the ball extremely hard, and he has a great attitude. He keeps everybody pumped up and ready to go.”

Four years ago, Leroy Gregg was asked to take over the reigns as head coach of the Oak Hill Academy Raiders. For the last three seasons, the 35-year veteran coach has been at the helm of the Raider program, but after Friday night’s season-ending loss to Winston, Gregg announced that he will not return for a fourth season.
“The first week in October, I went to the doctor so I could get some medicine refilled,” Gregg said. “I found out that I’ve sort of let my health slip a little bit. I had some disturbing blood pressure and cholesterol numbers.”

Green Wave look to repeat 2009 season record on Friday

The West Point Green Wave (9-1; 6-0) football team can smell repeat. If they win on the road, at Hernando, this Friday night, they will have repeated one more aspect from the 2009 season.
Last Friday night’s victory over the Clarksdale Wildcats gave the Green Wave the Region I crown. A win at Hernando will give the Green Wave the exact same regular season record as last year.
West Point will be facing a very good Tigers team, which comes into the game with an overall 7-4 record and a 4-2 district mark.
