West Point Stadium

LAST TIME: Wilson defeated West Point 41-13
LAST WEEK: West Point defeated Hamilton 23-13
Wilson defeated Sheffield 27-0
COACH: Don Farley (5th year)
FLASH NOTES: Confidence was gained in a huge way for the Warriors last week in coming from behind in their first ever visit to Hamilton. The Warriors utilized a stout running game and played good defense, holding Hamilton to one score after the Aggies took a 7-0 first quarter lead.
Wilson visits West Point Stadium for the first time. The visitors from Florence have enjoyed three consecutive winning seasons, posting a 23-7 record and making the playoffs in that span as a 4A member in the AHSAA.
West Point is trying to reverse its pattern, losing two consecutive home openers. The Warriors are 1-3 all time vs. schools from Lauderdale County.
Three of the next four games will be played on the West Point campus, with the Warriors hoping to build momentum vs. Wilson and take that into the opener of 5A, Region 6 the following Friday night at home vs. the Hayden Wildcats.
