The West Point Green Wave (9-1; 6-0) football team can smell repeat. If they win on the road, at Hernando, this Friday night, they will have repeated one more aspect from the 2009 season.
Last Friday nightâ€™s victory over the Clarksdale Wildcats gave the Green Wave the Region I crown. A win at Hernando will give the Green Wave the exact same regular season record as last year.
West Point will be facing a very good Tigers team, which comes into the game with an overall 7-4 record and a 4-2 district mark.
The Green Wave are undefeated in district play so far.
While the Green Wave ride a seven-game winning streak, the Tigers are on a three game surge, which includes wins over Gentry and New Hope, the latter a team that was battling for the district championship up until last week.
The only district losses came against Lake Cormorant and Oxford.
Kickoff for Friday night will be at 7 p.m.
