Hebron shocks Bayou with 1-0 win

Hebron shocked the world on Saturday.
At the very least, the Lady Eagles shocked the world of Class A softball. Not only did they earn their first-ever berth to the Class A State Tournament, they defeated the Bayou Academy Lady Colts, something no team has been able to do in North Half Tournament play in five years.
They defeated the Lady Colts 1-0, after tearing through Delta’s pitching for a 10-0 win to start the day.

One win, a 7-3 beating of North Delta, secured the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders’ spot in the state tournament.
With six teams (Oak Hill, Leake Academy, Carroll Academy, North Delta Academy and Canton Academy) playing in the Louisville event, the North State Tournament was full of great contests.
Oak Hill played three games on Saturday, losing the first to Kirk 9-0. They followed that with the only win of the afternoon for the Lady Raiders, the 7-3 victory. That would be followed by an 8-1 defeat to Canton.

Behind defense, Wave dominates at Indianola

September 25, 2010

It took West Point’s football team nearly three hours to get to Indianola for Friday night’s district opener against Gentry.
It took the West Point defense less than three minutes to take control of the game.
West Point forced Gentry to lose 13 yards on its first offensive possession and then tackled GHS punter Rufus Warren at his own 15-yard line, giving the Wave offense great field position and setting in motion a dominant performance in a 34-8 win.

Despite rough start, the Raiders never gave up

Two weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders were staring down a long tunnel, hoping to see some sort of light. The 0-4 record in the standings was not half as bad as walking off the field after a 61-6 loss to Leake.
They had turned the ball over four times, resulting in four scores. The roster, already small, was dwindling due to injuries. Then a little over a week ago, there came that light.

Oak Hill out-guns Rebels in 45-41 win

September 25, 2010

At times it was ugly.
The first half of Friday night’s conference battle between the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-4; 1-0) and the Carroll Academy Rebels (2-3; 0-1), at times, looked like a wild west shootout.
The two teams exchanged fire and they exchanged touchdowns. At the end of the third quarter, it looked like a sure win for the Raiders, but by the middle of the fourth, the Rebels shot their way back into the fray.
It went down to the wire, but Oak Hill finally won its second game of the season, a 45-41 victory over the Rebels.

Tapleys to take the field together for the last time during the upcoming playoffs

Sometime in the next two weeks, Magen Tapley is going to walk off the softball field for the final time as a Hebron Christian Lady Eagle.
She is one of seven seniors who will be leaving the team this year. For Magen Tapley, the trip off the diamond might be a little more emotional. There may be a few extra tears when she looks back on the opportunity she’s had.
A middle infielder, Magen has had the chance to not only play behind her sister, Chloe, who is Hebron’s starting pitcher, but she has learned a lot of what she knows about softball from her father.
