The Oak Hill Raiders have had too many miscues in the past two weeks. Whether it was missed tackles against Marshall Academy in the second game at home or two second-half special team mishaps against Tri-County last Friday in Flora, Oak Hill has not overcome the negative swings of the game.
The Raiders are hoping to erase those problems with their first district win. That triumph could be difficult to come by, especially with Oak Hill’s third road trip of the campaign.

Last season, the West Point Green Wave was stunned when the Columbus Falcons visited McCallister Field in West Point.

West Point, however, is more concerned about getting a second win in the victory column and less worried about getting revenge for last season’s loss.
