Watson, Frankfort roll over Berkeley

SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Brady Watson rumbled for 160 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries to lead Frankfort in a 61-6 drubbing of Berkeley Springs at Frankfort on Friday.

All three of Watson’s touchdowns came in the first half on 19-, 34- and four-yard runs. Cole Smith added a 13-yard scamper in the first quarter with a Gage Shaffer conversion run. The Falcons led 27-0 at the break.

Brady Tripatoe’s seven-yard run on the opening drive of the second half was the lone score for the Indians. The extra point was blocked. Noah Bible galloped in from eight yards two minutes later with Nick Houser’s extra point making it 34-6. Bible ran four times for 81 yards in all.

Gage Shaffer was 8-for-15 passing for 103 yards with no interceptions and a 30-yard touchdown toss to Tyler Crock.

The Falcons forced six turnovers, scoring on two of them. Jonny Hedrick picked off two passes, taking one 20 yards for a touchdown with 2:51 left in the third. Nick Houser had an interception and recovered a fumble in the end zone with 9:50 remaining, handing the Falcons a 55-6 lead.

Nick Miller capped it off with a 13-yard touchdown run at 5:41 in the fourth.

The Indians totalled 199 yards and eight first downs. They were 1-for-13 on third down.

Frankfort (3-0) goes to Northern and Berkeley Springs (0-4) plays at Southern on Friday.

Keyser    47

Northern    7

ACCIDENT — Cody Eversole and Danny Fife combined to rush for more than 260 yards and six touchdowns as Keyser dominated Northern Friday night.

Eversole ran for 163 yards on six carries — a gaudy 27-yard per run average — and Fife gained 100 on 11 carries. Both backs scored three touchdowns as the Tornado gained 490 yards while holding the Huskies to 118.

Fife scored the game’s first two touchdowns on runs of two and 12 yards in the first quarter. His third came early in the second quarter from the four.

Eversole took over after that, scoring from long distance on all of his touchdowns. Midway through the second quarter, he broke free for a 43-yard score, then with a little over four minutes before halftime, he took off on a 61-yard touchdown run.

He had the only touchdown of the third quarter, racing 55 yards.

Justin Lucas had Keyser’s other touchdown on a three-yard run with 30 seconds to play in the first quarter.

Northern avoided the shutout when Kody Osselburn scored on a 60-yard run. He was the Huskies’ leading rusher with 62 yards on two attempts. Messach Metz finished with 20 tackles and Butch Carr had six.

The Golden Tornado finished with 17 first downs to four for Northern and didn’t commit a turnover while Northern lost three fumbles.

Keyser (2-2) hosts Allegany and Northern (1-2) will entertain undefeated Frankfort on Friday. Both games begin at 7:30 p.m.

Silver Oak    21

Southern    14

TANEYTOWN — Quarterback Yusef Jones hooked up with wide receiver Johnnie Jenkins for a 25-yard touchdown pass with 40 seconds left in the game to cap the comeback and give the Silver Oak Rams a seven-point victory over the Southern Rams Friday at Taneytown Community Park.

The TD strike and ensuing extra point gave Silver Oak the seven-point lead after it had fallen behind 14-7 when Southern’s Reese Haskiell scored two third-quarter touchdowns, the first on a quarterback keeper from seven yards out, and the second on an interception he picked off around midfield to take in for the touchdown.

Silver Oak’s Rams (2-3), however, came right back to tie the score when Jenkins scored, and the kicked tied it at 14. Silver Oak took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter that would hold up until Haskiell’s first touchdown when running back Gibran Wiggins scored.

Seth Kisner led Southern in rushing with 82 yards, while Haskiell gained 72.

Southern (0-3) will host Berkeley Springs on Friday.
