Oxford brings big offensive numbers to West Point on Friday

October 5, 2010

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.

Eagles start league play with 32-20 loss to Central Holmes

October 2, 2010

The Hebron Christian Eagles (1-5; 0-1) were hoping that last week's bye would better prepare them for their first conference match, at Central Holmes (3-4; 1-1).
The last time Hebron took the field, two weeks ago, they were defeated 46-12 by the Oak Hill Raiders.
That made it back-to-back home losses for Hebron. In both weeks, they gave up 46 points, the other to Benton.
Central Holmes got on the board in the first quarter on a scoring drive, capped off by a 26 yard touchdown run by Corvell Dixon.

Lamar, weather cool off red hot Raiders

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) had three turnovers in Friday night’s non-league home game against the Raiders of Lamar (4-2), but those mistakes did not factor much in what would eventually be a 56-14 beating of Oak Hill.
Lamar was already up 28-0 when Conner Baird’s second quarter pass was tipped and intercepted for the home Raiders’ first give away of the game. Oak Hill’s mistakes centered around their tackling game.

A Raider win at Manchester seals 2010 playoff spot

Oak Hill may be 0-5 in non-league action this year, but where it counts, they are sitting with a 1-0 record, one win from a playoff spot.
As bad as Friday night’s 56-21 beating by Larmar was, the Raiders could be in a good place by next Friday, when they travel to take on Manchester Academy (0-5)

Chambless says Green Wave’s best ball may be yet to come in team’s second half

September 30, 2010

Five games are down for the West Point Green Wave (4-1; 1-0), and there are six more to go in the 2010 regular season.
The first half of the season has been eventful, to say the least, for head coach Chris Chambless, his staff and his players.
For many teams, it’s easy to cast off the first few games of the season as less important than the latter half. After all, conference play usually doesn’t come around until about week four or five.
That’s not the case for the 2010 Green Wave. That’s not the case at all.

Raiders try to extend winning streak to three against Lamar

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-4; 1-0) are hoping the flu bug is going to be long gone by the time they take the field tonight, at home, against another set of Raiders from Lamar Academy (3-2).
Tonight’s non-league battle will feature two teams looking to extend two-game winning streaks to three.
Lamar is coming off a pair of wins against Heritage and Canton. The latter one was a 48-13 blowout of the Panthers.
Coach Mac Barnes’ team will come in, featuring a roster that has a good bit more depth than Oak Hill’s.
