Green Wave soccer is on the rise

West Point soccer is on the rise.
The Green Wave program may be young, but it is one that is developing each time the players hit the field.
Head coach Keith Manning is also a football coach for the Green Wave, and he wants to transmit what makes that program successful to his own.
“We have to build off our football program,” said Manning, whose boys team beat Choctaw Central on Thursday and narrowly got defeated by district rival Saltillo on Saturday. “We have to take their ideas and success and carry it over into other programs.”

Tuesday is perhaps the busiest night of the week for all schools when it comes to sports.

The AA Carroll Academy Lady Raiders could not do anything with Tori Nichols on Thursday night. The Hebron Christian senior put up 25 points against the Lady Rebel defense, en route to a 58-33 win over Carroll.
Carroll was the second AA team that Hebron (17-2; 4-0) had knocked off this week, as they defeated Winston easily on Tuesday.
Hebron has a way of jumping out to a large lead and cruising in the later quarters. They did just that in this road game.

Malone’s free throws lift West Point over Bruce

The Green Wave had been in the situation before.
The game was tied, with less than 10 seconds to go. A foul was called on the opposing team, and West Point went to the line for two shots.
That’s the way it was against Houston a few weeks ago, and the Green Wave made both shots to win the game.
The situation repeated itself on Thursday night, against Bruce High School, at the Vardaman Tournament.
This time, it was Cortez Malone who was fouled, and he would go to the line for the crucial shot.
