LHS, WVHS searching for region wins

Oxford has the night off after playing Thursday in Olive Branch, but the two remaining area high school teams will tee it up tonight with Lafayette looking to continue its winning ways while Water Valley will try to rebound from a tough region-opening loss. Lafayette will host Tunica Rosa-Fort with the right to remain 2-0 in Region 2-4A on the line for both schools. Water Valley will travel up Highway 7 to take on the Holly Springs Hawks with both trying to earn their first Region 2-3A win of the season. (October 10, 2014, Page 6A)

Devils expect stiffer challenge from Hawks

It has been a tough year for Water Valley. After a loss to Charleston to open up Region 2-3A play last week, the Blue Devils have more than three losses for the first time since 2009.  The Blue Devils now turn their attention to the Holly Springs Hawks (4-3, 0-1), who are coming off their own region-opening loss at the hands of North Panola. (October 9, 2014, Page 6A)

No. 3 Charleston wears Blue Devils down, beats WVHS 40-17

WATER VALLEY — The Water Valley Blue Devils began their Region 2-3A slate with a 40-17 loss to Charleston on Friday at Bobby Clark Field. The Blue Devils (3-4 overall) got a touchdown run from Kirkland Horton and a touchdown pass from quarterback Jonathan Kent, but it wasn’t nearly enough to keep up with the No. 3-ranked Tigers (4-2, 1-0), who quickly wore down a depleted Blue Devil defense in another blowout victory in the series. Charleston has outscored Water Valley 82-27 the last two seasons. (October 5, 2014, Page 5B)

LHS, WVHS start, OHS continues region play

The important part of the schedule begins for a pair of area high school football teams tonight while it continues for another. Lafayette will travel to Ripley for its Region 2-4A opener while Water Valley will enterain Charleston to kick off Region 2-3A play. Oxford started its Region 1-5A slate with a 43-22 win at West Point a week ago and will try to make it two in a row against Saltillo at Bobby Holcomb Field. (October 3, 2014, Page 6A)

Blue Devils start region play looking for revenge against Charleston

The Water Valley Blue Devils (3-3) leveled their record with a win over Winona last week to cap their non-region portion of the schedule. Their reward? Facing the toughest team in Region 2-3A if not the entire 3A class, the Charleston Tigers (3-2), to begin region play Friday at Bobby Clark Field. (October 2, 2014, Page 6A)

Blue Devils bounce back, beat Winona 28-21

WATER VALLEY — Water Valley needed a short memory heading into Friday night’s match up with Winona. A week after conceding 63 points to Senatobia — the most points in the Brad Embry era — the Blue Devil defense regrouped and held on late to clinch a 28-21 win over the Tigers in front of a Homecoming crowd . (September 28, 2014, Page 4B)

Devils looking to piece together complete game against new-look Winona

For the second time in six weeks, the Water Valley Blue Devils will be trying to get back to .500 after falling to 2-3 due to a crushing loss at the hands of Senatobia last week. The Blue Devils welcome Winona (1-4) to town for homecoming.
