Posted by | February 8, 2009 12:00 am

Late game heroics. Lacy Yslas, being watched over by head coach Bryan Haley, works against an Oakland defender in the second half of Tuesday’s game.

Posted by | February 8, 2009 12:00 am

    On Friday night in their final regular season District 7AAA trip to Murfreesboro Oakland, the Warriors (10-15, 4-8) were defeated 53-40 by the Patriots.  It was the eighth straight game and 14th overall this … Read More
