There is little doubt that the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-7; 0-2) played their best game all year on Friday night. Still, a 22-14 lead in the middle of the fourth was not enough get them past the Rams of Immanuel.
That game, in particular, was also the most important of the season for the Eagles. It was their chance to get back in the district race, after falling to Central Holmes two weeks before in their first district match.

Livingston gives Oak Hill taste of the future

During the second half of Friday night’s game between Oak Hill and Kirk, home Raider Bo Sanford was spelled on offense for most of the last two quarters.
The Oak Hill standout remained in the game to play defense, but Raider head coach Leroy Gregg said that the rusher was too banged up to make a lot of cuts with the ball in hand. He was able to run north and south, but when it came to cutting with the ball, it was too painful.

Wave survives another division scare

October 16, 2010

For the second straight week, the West Point Green Wave needed to turn away a last-second two-point conversion in order to stay unbeaten in district play.
One week after surviving a 22-20 scare against Oxford, the defending 5A state champs found themselves in a similar dogfight Friday night, as homestanding Lake Cormorant scored with 1:53 left in the game to close to within a point.
Eschewing the chance at tying the game, Cormorant went for the win, and West Point defensive back Jaquille White forced an incomplete pass to help the Green Wave escape again, this time with a 28-27 win.
