Green Wave hope to end streak, top Jackets

September 9, 2011

Same week, different date.
Starkville High School did the unthinkable September 10, 2010, defeating the Green Wave 21-20. It was the only loss for West Point before they won 12 in a row on their way to a second consecutive 5A state title.
History, fans hope, won’t repeat itself tonight when the two teams meet under different circumstances.
The Green Wave have started 0-2 for the first time since 2000 while the Yeallowjackets are coming off back-to-back wins over Madison Central and Tupelo.

Hebron looking for repeat win

September 9, 2011

Hebron takes the filed Friday night for the first time in front of their home fans.
Just four weeks into the season and the Eagles are 1-1 coming off last weeks 48-8 over Calvary Christian. Head coach Tri Nason said he’s a hard time on occasions trying to keep his team focused for this week because they are still excited after that first victory.
“There still a little bit excited, I’m trying to get them to forget it but they haven’t forgotten it yet,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll be calmed down a little by Friday.”

Raiders still searching for a win

September 9, 2011

A new and improved Manchster Academy rolls into West Point tonight trying to keep up their impressive start to the season while Oak Hill Academy are still trying to correct the mistakes they’ve been making all season long that have kept them winless thus far.
“We found out who wanted to be here and who doesn’t this week,” head coach Benjie Merchant said. “We’ve had some good practices but we’re still searching for our identity.”
Mental mistakes on snaps as well as poor coverage and missed tackles have plagued the Raiders since week one.

Tapley throws no-hitter, Eagles win again

September 7, 2011

MACON - Chloe Tapley threw her second consecutive no-hitter Tuesday as Hebron Christian School earned another district victory shutting out Central Academy 8-0.

Tapley struck out 14 batters in her seven inning performance, but there was a question mark if she would even play because of a stomach virus.

Head coach Cass Tapley said the cooler weather Tuesday definitely played a big role in her pitching in the circle.

“I couldn’t be more proud of Chloe today,” he said. “For us this was a really big district game.”

Aggies to SEC on hold

September 7, 2011

BIRMINGHAM - The Southeastern Conference voted unanimously Tuesday to accept Texas A&M to join as a new member, but the process has been delayed because of the threat of legal action.

SEC president’s are seeking assurance that no BIG 12 school will sue the league for contractual interference over Texas A&M. Reports have surfaced that Baylor has yet to agree to the terms.

Eagles get first win behind potent offense

September 6, 2011

MERIDIAN - Will Corben-Rogers ran for two touchdowns and threw for another Friday night, leading the Hebron Eagles to their first win on the season, 48-8 over Calvary Christian (0-3).
First year head coach Tri Nason described the victory as a complete turn around from week one.
“I’m glad the first win is out of the way, now that we know what we’re doing does work,” he said.

Raiders drop third in a row with loss at Indianola

September 6, 2011

INDIANOLA - Oak Hill’s struggles continue on the gridiron this season after the Raiders were handed their third consecutive loss Friday night, 39-14 at the hands of Indianola Academy.
Offensive miscues and fumbles led to numerous turnovers in the game as the Raiders trailed 25-0 after the first quarter.
“We came out flat,” head coach Benjie Merchant said. “We came off the bus and weren’t ready to play.” Complete stats weren’t available as of press time.

Eagles hope new plays, rest lead to first win

September 2, 2011

Thirteen days between games may seem like an eternity for any football team, but for Hebron, it gives them plenty of time to rest, refocus and maybe even install a new offense. A few more plays here and there.
“We have been putting a lot more of a variety of plays on offense,” first year head Tri Nason said. “We’re going to be doing a little more passing this week.”
Nason said that QB Will-Corben Rogers, who was 3-of-5 passing for 39-yards in week one’s loss to Strider, made some big leaps and is feeling a little more comfortable running the new passing plays.

Raiders hungry to get back on track

September 2, 2011

Oak Hill Academy isn’t off to the best of starts in 2011. The Raiders are 0-2 and have scored just two touchdowns this season.
Head coach Benjie Merchant knows it’s going to be a tough first season early on, but the question is how long will it be before they can turn things around.
‘We’re just not ready to play in that caliber of a game yet,” Merchant said in reference to last week’s 41-6 loss to Winston Academy.

WP ready for rivals Columbus

September 2, 2011

West Point is no doubt excited about tonight.

After a week long-plus layoff, the Green Wave hope to bounce back on the road and get a victory over Columbus.

The last time the two teams met it was the Green Wave riding a 24-6 victory back in 2009, the first of 14 consecutive wins for West Point on their way to the first of back-to-back 5A state titles.

Hopefully history will repeat itself.

Head coach Chris Chambless is just ready to get back out on the field.
