The Moorefi eld Yellow Jackets in the past have had great glory days, but Friday night was not one of them. This was the 92nd meeting of the Vikings and Yellow Jackets. Coach Donny Evans - “We came through with a win. Four out of the five wins (this season) were on the road and that is good.”

The opponents welcomed Petersburg for the playing of the 13th “Little Brown Jug” Summit Bowl series and the Vikings won it handily at 32-7. They also celebrated Military Appreciation Night by recognizing all military branches active, reserve and retired. That recognition can never be done too many times.

Viking fans poured onto the field to fill the bleachers shoulder to shoulder with standing room only on our side.

Captains for the evening were seniors, Blake Turner, William “Bumby” Van Meter, McKale Schultz and Peyton Day.

The Vikings took an early lead and never looked back. Without wasting much time at 8:02 on the scoreboard Peyton Day made his first touchdown by rushing 69 yards to the finish.

Yellow Jackets started a goal run, but were stopped short with a block by Cameron Ault on a 3rd down pass. They then attempted a field goal short of points.

At 8:59 into the second quarter the Vikings had their second touchdown with senior defensive end, McKale Schultz pulling in an interception and running all the way for a touchdown. 14-0 Vikings. It wasn’t long until at 7:35 Peyton “PayDay” Day had a second touchdown rushing for 41 yards and the score is now 20-0.

Half time and both bands, Viking and Yellow Jackets presented great entertainment for the fans.

Third quarter and with 36 seconds left in it Moorefield’s Adam Landes scores a TD and it is now 20-7 Vikings.

Fourth quarter opens and the home team attempts their second fi eld goal to no avail. That’s just not working tonight.

West Virginia University West Virginia scored touchdowns on six of its seven first-half offensive possessions, kicked a field goal on the other, and rolled to a 65-7 victory over outmanned Towson here at sun-drenched Milan Puskar Stadium on Sept. 17.

Six of West Virginia’s nine touchdowns were scored on the ground, its most since getting seven in a 66-21 victory over Connecticut on Nov. 24, 2007. The Mountaineers scored on all of their offensive possessions and did not punt.

The Mountaineers will face a Hokie team coming off a 27-7 win over Wofford in Blacksburg to improve to 2-1 on the season. Virginia Tech knocked off Boston College after falling at Old Dominion to begin the season.

Here in Morgantown, quarterback JT Daniels completed 16 of his 24 pass attempts for 174 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown toss to Kaden Prather on the game’s opening possession, before giving way to backup Garrett Greene with 1:31 left in the second quarter and WVU leading 38-7.

Greene led West Virginia into the end zone on that possession as well as its opening drive of the third quarter when he marched the Mountaineers 73 yards to the Tiger 11 before taking it in from there.

The sophomore’s twopossession stat line included 59 yards rushing and 45 yards passing.

Number three quarterback Goose Crowder got the Mountaineers into the end zone once he got into the game late in the third quarter.

That 13-play, 68-yard drive concluded with 11:12 remaining in the game when Crowder completed a 5-yard touchdown pass to a sliding Jeremiah Aaron. The score was set up by Reese Smith’s fantastic catch down the near sideline two plays prior, which placed the football at the Tiger 1.
