LOST CREEK -- South Harrison amassed 278 yards on the ground, and sophomore quarterback Mark Frum connected twice with senior Roy McIntyre for touchdowns as the Hawks picked up their first win of the season in a 38-0 victory over Tygarts Valley Friday.
South Harrison coach Brad Jett used 11 different ball carriers, including freshman Charlie Brosius, whose 40-yard score capped the victory.
"We're getting there," Jett said after the game. "We still have some problems and mistakes to take care of. The biggest thing right now is to be positive with (the players).
"Any time we make a mistake, it's my fault," he said. "It's an example of my coaching."
But the mistakes were few and far between Friday and South Harrison took control early and never let go.
South Harrison took the opening kickoff and marched 68 yards for its first score. As the first quarter was dwindling down, Frum found McIntyre for their first TD of the game, putting the Hawks up 13-0.
With a little more than eight minutes left in the first half, South Harrison took advantage of a Tygarts Valley miscue.
After fumbled punt, Frum found McIntyre on the next play for a 38 yard scoring strike.
On the Bulldogs' next possession, Tygarts Valley fumbled again.
South Harrison linebacker Derrick Curry fell on the loose ball, setting up South Harrison for its fourth TD of the game.
Aaron Smith capped the 3:21, 42-yard drive to put the Hawks up 26-0.
Less than a minute into the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs coughed up the ball again.
South Harrison's Nate Nutter carried four straight times, including the 2-yard plunge for the score.
Brosius capped the night with a 40-yard ramble to put the Bulldogs away.
"The offensive line did a great job," Jett said. "We had a great game plan going in and the kids really executed."
Next up for South Harrison is a visit to Pendleton County, while Tygarts Valley tries to snap its 23-game losing streak at Moorefield.
