Oak Hill Oaks at Wellston Rockets
After a heartbreaking loss to Galia Academy 14-12, Wellston looks to get back to the .500 mark against the winless Oak Hill Oaks. After a strong 2010 campaign, where the Oaks went 11-2, they have struggled this year with a record of 0-3. Oak Hill’s offense has especially been porous.
