Water Valley football

Aberdeen takes advantage of miscues

As Water Valley head coach Brad Embry pointed out Friday night, football can be — and often is — an unforgiving sport.

When Water Valley blinked or made a mistake, the Aberdeen Bulldogs pounced and took full advantage en route to a 35-14 victory.

“They’re a good team,” Embry said. “They don’t forgive you, do they?” (October 11, 2010, Page 3B)

      Important region games for all three area teams tonight

      Tonight’s area football teams will play important game for determining seeds for the upcoming playoffs. No. 1 Lafayette has an opportunity to further secure a second straight Region 2-4A title with a win over Senatobia at William L. Buford Stadium. Oxford has a great opportunity of finishing first in Region 1-5A if it can defeat West Point on the road, while the Water Valley Blue Devils can remain in first place in Region 2-3A with an upset of Aberdeen on the road.

      Kickoff for all three games is set for 7. LHS-SHS can be heard locally on 93.7 FM, OHS-WPHS can be heard locally on 95.5 FM, while WVHS-AHS can be heard on 105.5 FM. (October 8, 2010, Page 6A)

        Blue Devils brace for Ward, speedy Bulldogs Friday

        It’s hard to talk about Aberdeen without mentioning the words “speed” and “athleticism,” of which the Bulldogs have more than an ample amount.

        Last year, on a rain drenched Bobby Clark Field, the Blue Devils found out first hand just how much speed the reigning Class 3A North Half champions had — and still have. (October 7, 2010, Page 7)

          Hervey, Robles earn Co-POW honors

          For the first time since the weekly honor initially donned the pages of the Oxford EAGLE last season, there’s a Co-Player of the Week.

          Because one heroic play would not have been made possible without the other, both Alex Robles and Des Hervey have been named this week’s Player of the Week.

          Water Valley’s kicker and cornerback/receiver came up big at the end of Friday’s 23-20 victory over Nettleton.

          With the game tied 20-20, Robles, recently called up to the varsity from the eighth grade team, booted a 25-yard field goal to go ahead.

          Four plays later, Hervey swooped around the right side of Nettleton’s protection and blocked what would have been a game-tying field goal to secure the Blue Devils’ victory. (October 5, 2010, Page 8)

            Robles, Hervey lift Water Valley in OT

            Water Valley has several big-time players that litter its roster: senior running back/safety Eric Buckley, junior receiver/cornerback Chris Conard and freshman quarterback E.J. Bounds, just to name a few.

            On Friday at Nettleton’s Jack Carlisle Field, it was an unlikely recent roster addition, however, that ended up being the hero for the Blue Devils in their 23-20 overtime victory. (more…) (October 4, 2010, Page 3B)

                Water Valley expecting to get best effort from Nettleton on Friday

                Brad Embry wants to make it clear that the Nettleton Wildcats squad that Water Valley (5-1 overall) will face on Friday is not going to be the same team that lost to Bruce 43-13 last week, nor the team that opened the season 0-2 after losing to Amory and North Pontotoc.

                Instead, Embry said he expects Friday’s showdown in Nettleton to be a “knock-down, drag-out” for the Region 2-3A opponents. (September 30, 2010, Page 8)

                    ‘Dores’ Dennis runs into POW honors

                    The catalyst for Lafayette’s 52-0 romp over Byhalia on Friday was running back Demarkus Dennis.

                    The junior rushed for 187 yards and four scores in Lafayette’s Region 2-4A showdown. As a result, Dennis was named the EAGLE’s Player of the Week for the first time this season. (September 28, 2010, Page 6)
