West Point played solid defense and went by a weaker New Hope in the last game of the regular season and district play. After the 38-7 win Friday, the Green Wave have had seven strong wins in a row, including the district clinching win over Oxford.
West Point’s Head Coach Chambless was happy to see this past week to go by, knowing that his Green Wave could have lost focus playing the lesser New Hope. Also the margin of victory allowed for West Point to play younger players and rest many of their starters.
The Green Wave has yet to the play the perfect game and knows that they will need that game to come sometime during the MHSAA 5A playoffs. After a three way tie for third and fourth seed in Region 2-5A, it was determined early Saturday morning that West Point would play host to the Canton Tigers in the first round of the playoffs. West Point football players have worked all preseason and want to win it all. The Wave back the State Championship back to the community of West Point, and it all starts this Friday night against Canton.
“We’re playing for the community as a whole,” Chambless said. “We’re playing for those who are not able to be with us out here, and we’re playing for those who’ve never had the opportunity to play the game of football.”
