There’s no place like Homecoming.
Both Point Pleasant and Wahama started Homecoming festivities in grand style after each program posted home wins during Week 5 football contests in Mason County.
The Big Blacks (4-1) picked up their fourth consecutive win following a 35-6 decision over Mount View, while the White Falcons (1-4) snapped a nine-game losing skid following a 28-8 triumph over Federal Hocking.
Point Pleasant led 28-0 at halftime and rolled to its fifth straight Homecoming victory at Ohio Valley Bank Track and Field. Brooke was the last team to beat PPHS on Homecoming, doing so by a 34-33 count back in 2012.
Wahama was down 8-6 after one period, but the hosts closed the game with 22 unanswered points en route to knocking off the Lancers for a ninth consecutive season.
WHS last won a Homecoming contest two years ago against these same Lancers, which ended up as a 31-15 decision at Bachtel Stadium.
Hannan — fresh off its only win of the season last Saturday at Hundred — had a scheduled bye this weekend, but returns to action next Friday for Week 6 action when it hosts Jenkins (KY) at 7:30 p.m.
Point Pleasant travels to Parkersburg South next Friday for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Wahama will host Trimble in a Week 6 TVC Hocking contest Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Due to an early deadline, the Mason County football openers from Week 4 will be available in full detail in the Tuesday sports edition of the Point Pleasant Register. Game stories will be available online at mydailyregister.com before appearing in print.
