The West Point Green Wave (6-1; 3-0) will hit the road for just the third time this season today, traveling to Lake Cormorant to take on the Gators (5-2; 2-1) in a district match up. Other than week two’s trip to Florida, the Green Wave’s only other road game was week six’s trip to Indianola.

Raiders’ non-district match with Kirk still important game

There’s quite a bit of pressure off the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) compared to what they faced last Friday. They were coming off a big non-league loss to Lamar, trying to bounce back in the most important district game to date against Manchester Academy.
This week, the Raiders’ contest against Kirk Academy (2-6) does not have any direct playoff implications. The game, however, could effect how the Raiders play in their next district match, as they will spend the next two weeks getting ready for the final-week showdown against Winston.

Eagles and Rams enter district match with offensive struggles

The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1) are coming into tonight’s ball game with the Rams of Immanuel (3-5; 0-1) having spent the first seven games of the season struggling on offense.
The Eagles have managed to score only as many as 20 points twice this season, going 1-1 in those games.
This week, they will be facing a three-win team, but the good news for the Eagles is that the Rams have had their struggles scoring touchdowns as well.
Immanuel opened the season with a 41-6 loss to Hatley. That was followed by a 28-14 loss to Central Academy.

All three area teams still in playoff hunt

There are many teams across this state that have already received the bad news. They have lost key district games, and they will not be playing football beyond the final week of the regular season.
While times might seem tough for some of our area schools, Clay County is fortunate enough to be able to say that all three teams, the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-6; 0-1), the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) and the West Point Green Wave (6-1; 3-0) have not sealed their fate as far as the post-season is concerned.

Thanks to clear skies and a lot of hard work, the fall season for youth sports got off to a great start on Monday night, as over a hundred local youths converged on the Parks and Recreation sportsplex to begin the youth soccer season.
As far as fan support goes, Parks Assistant Director Jarrod McDaniel says it was the best turnout he has seen since he’s been with the department.
“There were a lot of people,” McDaniel said. “As far as crowd participation goes, it was the best I’ve seen.”
