CURRENT STORIES


Friday night notes

n WHAT OFFENSIVE WOES?: Migel Lockett broke loose Friday night with 250 all-purpose yards in the Eagles' 34-0 victory over Lincoln.

His 162 yards receiving was a school and personal record and through two games, the junior receiver has 111 more receiving yards than he did through his first two games last season.

n CAREY NOTCHES 60TH CAREER WIN: With Bridgeport's 27-0 victory over South Harrison Friday, Bridgeport head coach Bruce Carey recorded his 60th career victory.

Carey, who is in just his seventh season as head coach, needed just 75 games to reach the mark. He is 60-15.

n HOW'S THAT FOR A QB RATING: Grafton quarterback Andy Leach is making good on the limited opportunities he's given each game.

In two games, the sophomore quarterback is 8 of 10 for 235 yards, three touchdowns and just one interception for the 2-0 Bearcats.

n NO CHANCE TO SCORE: Through three quarters of its 27-0 victory over South Harrison, Bridgeport had built a 21-0 lead thanks in large part to its methodical, clock-consuming offense and a stout defense.

Heading into the fourth quarter, the Indians held the ball for 25:05 out of a possible 36:00.

n AND IT'S GOOD -- FINALLY: Matt Mayle's PAT kick Friday night in Philip Barbour's 40-7 loss to Preston was the first successful extra-point try for the Colts since 2000. It was just the second PAT attempt in the past 22 games for Philip Barbour.

n ON THE FLIP SIDE OF THAT: University High had three different players convert PAT kicks in the Hawks' 30-0 victory over East Fairmont, including Stephanie Anderson, a standout on the University High girls soccer team.

n SORELY MISSED: Fairmont Senior tailback Matt Delligatti carried just one time for two yards in the Polar Bears' 27-21 overtime loss to North Marion.

Delligatti was still suffering from a leg injury suffered a week before against Robert C. Byrd.

n IT'S OVER: Grafton has made the playoffs in two of its past four seasons, but Friday's 32-6 victory over Lewis County was the first win the Bearcats have against a team with a winning record since 1999.

n HAWKING 'D': Teams aren't finding much offense against University High's swarming defense.

The unit has yet to give up a point and allowed just 221 yards of total offense.

n STAT OF THE NIGHT: Robert C. Byrd held Lincoln to just two yards rushing on 36 attempts.

n AND FOR THEIR CROSSTOWN RIVALS ...: Morgantown has been getting done with a punishing rushing game.

The Mohigans have gained 470 yards in six quarters on the ground. Morgantown's opening night victory against Buckhannon-Upshur was called at halftime because of lightning. The Mohigans were leading 20-0 and had gained 150 yards rushing.

n LOOKING AHEAD: North Marion (1-1) visits Robert C. Byrd (1-1) next week in an inter-conference game.

Huskies' back Ryan May has rushed for 264 yards, including Friday's 223-yard effort in an overtime victory over Fairmont Senior.

The Eagles are allowing just 2.1 yards per carry after holding Lincoln to just two yards rushing Friday.

Robert C. Byrd scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns last season to defeat North Marion, 35-34.
