Point to host Miners Saturday afternoon

One more time, with feeling. The Point Pleasant football team finished eighth in the final Class AA rankings and will host ninth-ranked Mingo Central at OVB Field on Saturday afternoon in the opening round of the 2018 playoffs. The Big Blacks (8-1) will be facing the Miners (8-2) for the second time this season as the Red and Black won a 42-35 thriller in the 2018 opener at Matewan. Point Pleasant is making the program’s 11th consecutive postseason appearance. Kickoff is slated for 1:30 p.m. More details about the 2018 WVSSAC playoff schedule will be made available throughout the week. (Bryan Walters|OVP Sports)
