Bridgeport visits Keyser in W.Va. AA showdown

Allegany hosts Northern; Frankfort at Washington


Northern at Allegany

Northern comes into Greenway on a three-game winning streak, while Allegany is coming off its second loss in three games.

The Huskies beat Mountain Ridge last week, 28-8, as Tommy Durst rushed for 156 yards, 81 coming on a touchdown run. Jeremy Bender scored a pair of touchdowns for Northern

The Campers fell last week at Calvert, 37-30, with the Cavaliers speed and spread option offense being too much for the Campers to keep up with in a back-and-forth, down-to-the wire game.

Madison Wolford rushed for 82 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Allegany. Christian Thomas and Wade McGee also scored.

Northern won last year’s game, 41-12, while Allegany leads the series, 11-1.

Frankfort at Washington

Frankfort drove 99 yards for a touchdown on its opening drive and went from there with two touchdowns by Thane Cutter and one each by Damian Morgan, Brady Watson, Trent Lloyd and Tyler Cook, who returned an interception for six.

Washington has lost six straight games this season and lost to to the Falcons in overtime last year, 26-20. Frankfort leads the series, 2-0.

Mountain Ridge at Southern

Mountain Ridge lost to Northern last week, 28-8. Logan Jefferies rushed for 117 yards and scored a touchdown for the Miners.

Meanwhile, Southern fell to Fort Hill, 42-6. The Rams got to within 7-6 in the first half on a Brian Wildman touchdown, but then gave up a 73-yard kickoff return to Fort Hill’s Ty Mance, and the Rams would get no closer as the Sentinels scored 29 second-half points.

Mountain Ridge won last year, 35-7.

Hedgesville at Hampshire

Hampshire fell hard to Musselman last week, 56-12, as the Trojans slipped to No. 20 in the West Virginia Class AAA ratings. Calab Landis and Lucas Powers scored the touchdowns for Hampshire.

Hedgesville's only wins have come over Mountain Ridge and James Wood. Since then, the Eagles have lost three straight, giving up 164 points to Martinsburg, Musselman and Boonsboro.

Hedgesville won last year, 56-22.

Petersburg at Moorefield

After winning four straight, Petersburg has lost two straight, losing to Southern and Frankfort by a combined score of 88-6. Moorefield is coming off a 39-20 loss to East Hardy.
