SOUTH CHARLESTON 42, HUNTINGTON 21

Sophomore quarterback Trey Dunn threw for 350 yards and four touchdowns while also running for two touchdowns as Class AAA No. 1 South Charleston won on Friday at Huntington.

For the Black Eagles (4-0) it was the second game in a five-day span following a blowout win Monday at home against St. Albans. For Huntington (2-5), quarterback Gavin Lochow threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in the loss.

SPRING VALLEY 35, BRIDGEPORT 10

The Timberwolves held the typically strong Bridgeport running game to just 101 yards on 31 carries while senior running back Cole Diamond accounted for 172 rushing yards and a touchdown as Class AAA No. 8 Spring Valley won convincingly at No. 2 Bridgeport.

SV (4-1) snapped the state’s longest win streak for the second time this season, ending the Indians’ run of consecutive victories at 14 games.

GEORGE WASHINGTON 45, WOODROW WILSON 42

GW led by as many as 31 points in the third quarter and hung on to win despite a Woodrow Wilson rally. The Patriots (2-1) ran out to a 45-14 lead in the third quarter before the Flying Eagles (1-6) started their comeback.

Woodrow scored the game’s final 28 points and had a chance to win or tie with possession of the ball inside the GW 10 yard line with more than a minute to play. The Flying Eagles, however, could not get the ball into the end zone and missed a fourth-down field goal attempt that would have tied the game with 12 seconds to play.

Woodrow quarterback Maddex McMillen threw for 366 yards — a school record — and four touchdowns in the loss while teammate Jace Colucci also set a school record with 170 receiving yards.

SISSONVILLE 60, GREENBRIER EAST 47

The Class AA No. 1 Indians stepped up and hit the road to take on a state-ranked Class AAA team and came away with a wild win. Sissonville (4-0) won its second game in five days and is scheduled to host Class AAA St. Albans next Tuesday. Greenbrier East (5-2), was ranked No. 11 in this week’s Class AAA WVSSAC playoff ratings coming into Friday’s loss.

MORGANTOWN 61, LINSLY 40

The Mohigans (2-2) evened their record without throwing a single pass in a home win against Wheeling-based boarding school Linsly. Morgantown rolled up 650 yards of total offense despite not throwing any passes as Cam Rice and Deondre Crudup each scored two touchdowns in the win.

Morgantown has won two consecutive games after an 0-2 and start and will go into next week’s scheduled Mohawk Bowl against cross-town rival University — also now at 2-2 after a win Friday against Preston — looking to poke its head above .500 for the first time in 2020.

ROBERT C. BYRD 21, GRAFTON 14

The Class AA No. 9 Eagles (5-2) saw their explosive offense slowed Friday but were still able to come away with a win against the Bearcats (3-5). RCB standout running back Jeremiah King accounted for two of Byrd’s touchdowns in the win while teammate John Cites scored the other.

FRANKFORT 36, NORTH MARION 19

The Class AA No. 2 Falcons (7-1) rolled up 396 rushing yards to run away Class AA No. 9 North Marion (5-2) on Friday.

Frankfort’s Cole Heitt accounted for three of the team’s five rushing touchdowns in the win against the visiting Huskies.

GREENBRIER WEST 41, SHERMAN 14

Quarterback Kaiden Pack threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more as the Class A No. 3 Cavaliers became the Mountain State’s first 8-0 team with Friday’s win. The win, coupled with Bridgeport’s loss, also means Greenbrier West now owns the state’s longest current win streak at eight games.

Cole McClung also ran for two touchdowns in the win for the Cavaliers while teammate Noah Brown chipped in with 73 rushing yards.
