Playoffs in the air as Oak Hill travels to take on 0-6 Manchester

With the high school football season more than half over, conference play is bringing a playoff atmosphere to the air in every ball game.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) are no exception this high intensity football that fans will see as the season rounds out over the next month.
This week’s match for Oak Hill is by far the most important one since their first conference game against Carroll, which they won. A second district win against Manchester (0-6;0-1) on Friday night would spell November football for the Raiders.

The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-5; 0-1) did not get off to a great start in conference play last Friday night at Central Holmes.
They Trojans pulled away in the second half to defeat Hebron 32-20.
This week, the Eagles will be on the road again, but unlike their game with the Trojans, they will not be facing a conference opponent.
They will be heading to the Delta to take on the Carroll Academy Rebels.
The Raiders have had an up and down season in 2010, winning two in a row after a week one loss.

Raiders to dress 16 as Miller recovers from ankle injury

Friday night was one of those nights for the Oak Hill Academy Raider football team.
Just when fans thought things could not get any worse than the scoring gap between their team and Lamar’s Raiders, the sight of players being carried off the field was almost too much.
Late in the game, Oak Hill’s Reid Posey was assisted off the field during a series, and later on, senior running back Doss Miller was carried off by the coaching staff, after injuring his ankle.

Oxford brings big offensive numbers to West Point on Friday

In a season when every single game is pivotal, the West Point Green Wave (5-1; 2-0) have not had a lot of time to breathe. Other than the week three bye that replaced a scheduled game with Columbus, West Point has been in high intensity mode for most of the season.
For many teams, this time of year means play with high intensity or risk falling out of playoff contention. The Green Wave are no exception to that, as conference play heats up, with just a little over a month to play in the regular season.

Lady Raiders bow out of playoffs

October 5, 2010

It’s every kid’s dream. It’s the last inning, the bases are loaded and there are two strikes with two outs. It’s all up to one batter.
Lauren Hitt lived that dream on Saturday night. A hot hitter of late, Hitt came to the plate with Oak Hill facing elimination from the state tournament in Ridgeland.
The Lady Raiders were down 10-6, and it was their last at-bat. There were two outs and time was running out in the game.

Lady Eagles take third place at state

October 5, 2010

For most of Hebron Christian’s Lady Eagles, Saturday’s visit to Freedom Ridge Park in Ridgeland was their first. At least it was their first in uniform.
Hebron made its first appearance ever in the softball state tournament on Saturday, and much like their trip to North State last week, they distinguished themselves immediately with a 4-2 win over Hiedelberg.
The Lady Eagles would fall in their next match, a 12-2 defeat at the hands of Silva Bay, but they would rally to stay in the tournament with a 5-4 win over Union Christian.
