Green Wave hope to end streak, top Jackets

September 8, 2011

Same week, different date.
Starkville High School did the unthinkable September 10, 2010, defeating the Green Wave 21-20. It was the only loss for West Point before they won 12 in a row on their way to a second consecutive 5A state title.
History, fans hope, won’t repeat itself tonight when the two teams meet under different circumstances.
The Green Wave have started 0-2 for the first time since 2000 while the Yeallowjackets are coming off back-to-back wins over Madison Central and Tupelo.

Hebron looking for repeat win

September 8, 2011

Hebron takes the filed Friday night for the first time in front of their home fans.
Just four weeks into the season and the Eagles are 1-1 coming off last weeks 48-8 over Calvary Christian. Head coach Tri Nason said he’s a hard time on occasions trying to keep his team focused for this week because they are still excited after that first victory.
“There still a little bit excited, I’m trying to get them to forget it but they haven’t forgotten it yet,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll be calmed down a little by Friday.”

Raiders still searching for a win

September 8, 2011

A new and improved Manchster Academy rolls into West Point tonight trying to keep up their impressive start to the season while Oak Hill Academy are still trying to correct the mistakes they’ve been making all season long that have kept them winless thus far.

Mental mistakes on snaps as well as poor coverage and missed tackles have plagued the Raiders since week one.

Tapley throws no-hitter, Eagles win again

September 7, 2011

MACON - Chloe Tapley threw her second consecutive no-hitter Tuesday as Hebron Christian School earned another district victory shutting out Central Academy 8-0.

Tapley struck out 14 batters in her seven inning performance, but there was a question mark if she would even play because of a stomach virus.

Head coach Cass Tapley said the cooler weather Tuesday definitely played a big role in her pitching in the circle.

“I couldn’t be more proud of Chloe today,” he said. “For us this was a really big district game.”
