Bridgeport visits Keyser in W.Va. AA showdown

Allegany hosts Northern; Frankfort at Washington

KEYSER, W.Va. — Facing off in what could be the regular-season game of the year, the Bridgeport Indians (6-1), rated No. 2 in West Virginia Class AA, pays a visit to Keyser to take on the No. 4-rated Golden Tornado (6-1) in a critical match-up in the West Virginia playoff seeding chase tonight, 7 p.m., at Alumni Stadium at Tornado Alley to highlight week 9 of high school football in the area.

State playoff races are likely to heat up in both Maryland and West Virginia this weekend as tonight Allegany (5-2), which slipped to No. 3 in the Maryland 1A West Region, hosts Northern (3-4) at Greenway Avenue Stadium, while undefeated Frankfort (7-0), rated No. 3 in West Virginia AA, will be in Charles Town for its eighth win in a row, taking on Washington (1-6).

Elsewhere, Mountain Ridge (0-7) is at Southern (2-5), Hampshire (4-3) hosts Hedgesville (2-5), Petersburg (4-3) is at Moorefield (3-4) and East Hardy (6-1) hosts Berkeley Springs (0-8).

All games kick off at 7 p.m. with the exception of Petersburg-Moorefield and Berkeley Springs-East Hardy which begin at 7:30 p.m.

Two area games will take place on Saturday, as Fort Hill (5-2), winner of three straight and rated No. 2 in the West Region, will host Chestnut Ridge (4-3) at 2 p.m., while Bishop Walsh (6-1) has a 1:30 p.m. kickoff at Brother Stephen F. Paul Spartan Stadium against the Virginia Lions (1-6) of Purcellville, Va.

Bridgeport at Keyser

The Golden Tornado, in the midst of its late-season roll, has won three in row, beating Jefferson last week, 20-6, behind Danny Fife’s 190 yards rushing and three second-half touchdowns.

Fife’s first touchdown, a three-yard run, broke the scoreless tie with 5:24 to play in the third quarter and Tyler Hamilton’s first of two extra points gave the Golden Tornado a 7-0 lead. Fife set up his second three-yard TD run with a 34-yard run.

After Zack Johnson recovered a Jefferson fumble at the Keyser 28, Blake Ravenscroft broke a 70-yard gain, allowing Fife to go in on the next play from two yards out at 4:27 of the fourth.

The Indians are hot themselves, coming in tonight on a five-game winning streak, having beaten North Marion, Byrd, East Fairmont, Elkins and University this season. Their lone loss was at Wheeling Park, 14-13.

Bridgeport averages 29 points and 288 yards rushing a game. The Indians have given up 14 points per game.

This will be the first meeting between the schools.
