Last week against Lake Cormorant, the Green Wave were unfazed by a 21-point deficit at halftime, scoring 24 points to win its second consecutive district game.
The story was not much different in week 10 as West Point (5-4; 3-2 District 1-5A) scored 29 points in the final two quarters after trailing by eight points to beat Saltillo, 43-22, in a MHSAA District 1-5A contest Friday night at Hamblin Stadium in West Point.
"It was a big second half for us," West Point Head Coach Chris Chambless said. "We knew coming out what we had to do to win. We are going to go as our seniors go, they did a good job leading us in the second half. Everyone needs to stay behind us and realize we are playing for our community."
Starting the second-half, Satillo called an onside kick, which was recovered by West Point freshman Keonte Hampton giving the Wave offense great field position at their 46-yard line.
