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.

The last two times the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-4) took the field, they gave up 46 runs on each occasion.
The first was against a Benton Academy team that came into Pheba 0-3, and the second was to an Oak Hill team that entered their contest 0-4.

An 8-0 win over Tri-County finished off the winner’s bracket in the early-week games, and the Lady Eagles are set to play State Tournament ball on Saturday.

West Point was a thorn in the side of the New Hope Trojans last season, to say the least.
The first time the Green Wave beat the Trojans in 2009, New Hope was undefeated at 4-0. West Point, in the middle of a 14 game winning streak themselves, broke that up.
Much later in the season, the two teams met up again. This time it was the third game of the playoffs. New Hope was looking to avenge the early-season loss, but they were soundly defeated again by the Green Wave 41-21.

Raiders coach: Zero turnovers key to game against Lamar

Two weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-4; 1-0) played a nearly perfect game on offense, not turning the ball over once against Hebron’s defense.
Last week, they were at home against Carroll, but they had a few mistakes, as turnovers proved costly in a close win.
This week, Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg says that the team will have to go back to the same type of play they saw at Hebron, in order to be successful against Lamar.
“We’re not going to be able to turn the ball over,” Gregg said. “We have got to hold on to that football on offense.”
