Second game of the season was a good one for the boys of Creek, but they fell short to the Harrison Huskies by 3 points. It was a good game, and the Redskins fought hard all four quarters. Senior post player, Cody Durbin lead his team in points with 9 to finish the game. Senior point guard, Blake Roar hustled 8 points while Woodbury finished the game with 7. This week the boys take on the Bellaire Big Reds at home Tuesday, Union Local Jets Friday away, and the Brooke Bruins away on Saturday.
The playoffs are inching closer, but who is getting in is still in question. In the AFC the Broncos and Chiefs are still fighting for the West. The Bengals are losing their grip over the North. The Colts have locked up the South. The Patriots seem to have the East all wrapped up. The wild card is still up for grabs, however either the Broncos or the Chiefs are likely to get the first slot. The Ravens and Dolphins are the frontrunners to get the second spot. In the hunt are the Steelers, Chargers, and a few other teams.
In the NFC South the Saints and Panthers are fighting for the lead. The West belongs to the Seahawks. The Eagles and Cowboys are battling for the East. The Lions and Bears are leading in the North. The 49ers seem to have one of the wild card spots locked up and either the Saints or Panthers will get the other.
We are all still waiting for the playoff picture to unfold, but the only way to find out is to tune into the games next! More blogs will be posted weekly to keep you updated.

“On my visit to WVU, people were very welcoming and I had an excellent tour guide. She took us all over campus and I immediately fell in love with the school. I knew that this was the place I wanted to spend the next four years. Its a big school, but that is what I am looking for and it is in a pretty small town. I want a new, fun experience and I think West Virginia University will be great for me. It is a total change in environment, but still not to far from my family and other bigger cities. I will be able to come home when I want, but still be independent. I applied and quickly got my acceptance letter. The school has stayed in touch with me and a WVU student called me asking if I had any questions for her about her experience at the school and even gave me a number to call back in case I have any more questions. Despite the size of the campus, I felt very comfortable and am so excited to attend this school next fall.”
