The Oak Hill Raiders fell over the weekend to the MAIS top-ranked Marshall Academy. The Raiders fought hard throughout the game but could not stay with a sharp shooting Marshall, falling to the Patriots 70-36.
Though the loss to Marshall could be disheartening, Oak Hill understands there are more important tasks ahead. The Raiders will make the two hour journey to face Canton Academy Friday night in district 2-AA play. This meeting will be the first for Oak Hill and Canton on the season.
It will be a quick turn around for Oak Hill as the Raiders will return home for a rematch against Leake Academy on Saturday afternoon. A 58-48 loss to Leake in Madden can possibly be erased by a great performance from Head Coach Brian Middleton and his Raiders.
Oak Hill is currently sitting with a 3-1 record in district play and will hope to improve their chances for the number one seed when February arrives this coming weekend.
