For the second straight year, the West Point Green Wave had a chance to clinch the Division 1-5A championship with a win over Clarksdale.
And for the second straight year, that’s exactly what West Point did – but it wasn’t easy.
West Point weathered an early offensive storm and fought back from a halftime deficit to remain perfect in district play with a 26-17 Friday night, clinching a No. 1 seed in the Class 5A playoffs, which start in two weeks.

The 2010 season came down to Friday night for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (3-8; 1-2). Coming into the game against Winston (6-4; 3-0), the Raiders were evened up in district play, needing to win by seven points to get into the playoffs.
A great effort against a very physical Patriot club did not transpire into a victory for the Raiders, however, as Winston took the game and the district in a 41-7 victory.
“They just sort of blew us up defensively,” said Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg. “They were quicker than us, and stronger than us.”

Raiders play tough, despite numbers

For anyone on the outside looking in, three wins for a team that played with less than 18 players all season seems like overachieving. That’s not how the Raiders look at it now, and it’s not how they’ve looked at it throughout the 2010 season.
After getting off to an 0-4 start, the Raiders knew that numbers were not the problem. They knew they were a better team than the one that showed up that first month.

Halloween is not until Sunday, but the West Point Green Wave (8-1; 5-0) football team’s magic number is one. If West Point wins, they are district champions. If New Hope loses, the Green Wave are champs.
West Point would much prefer the first scenario to the latter.
“We’re going to try an sow up the district this week,” Chambless said. “If we win, then we’ll be district champs, and that’s been our goal all along.”

Raiders looking for playoff berth at Winston

The 2010 season has been one of ups and downs for the Raiders of Oak Hill Academy (3-8; 1-1).
They were written off by most early on, losing the first four games of the regular season. What the doubters did not count on was a resurgence in the middle of the season that included a conference win against Carroll that put the Raiders right back into the playoff hunt.
After getting that first conference win, the Raiders were feeling really good about their playoff chances. They went into their second district game, up against a winless Manchester team.

The Eagles came into 2010 very young, but they have shown a lot of promise over the last 10 weeks that has a lot people excited about 2011.
Before all that, the Eagles will try to hammer out one more win in the 2010 season. The will finish up at home tonight against the district winners of Winona.
The Eagles are coming off their second win of the season. Last Friday night, they dropped down to eight-man football to take on Calhoun Academy.

Tonight, the weather is predicted to be much cooler, with a high at around 68 degrees.
