KIDWELL -- Tyler Consolidated outlasted Doddridge County in a defensive struggle that ended with a 6-0 Knight win in overtime.
After holding Doddridge in the overtime period, the Knights put together a five-play drive that was capped when fullback Matt Boor rumbled 4 yards off left tackle for the game's only score.
Doddridge had the first opportunity to score midway through the second quarter when Tyler snapped the ball over the punter's head and the Bulldogs took over on the 2-yard line. The Knights defense then held the Doddridge in check for four plays.
After a four-and-out, Doddridge marched down to the 9 before fumbling.
"We had the ball in the re zone three times tonight and couldn't punch it in," Doddridge coach Dan McConnell said. "What beat us was having the ball on the 2 and not punching it in. Defensively tonight, we did a heck of a job, but offensively, I'm not happy one bit with the way we played."
Tyler drove deep into Doddridge territory twice in the second half only to come up empty with field goal misses of 27 and 19 yards.
"We had opportunities that we didn't capitalize on," Tyler Consolidated coach John Stender said. "We should have had it in the end zone a couple of times. Some of it was our fault, and some of it was that they just played good defense on us."
Doddridge's final opportunity came at the beginning of overtime, when receiver Adam Cross had the ball stripped from him in the end zone by safety Noah Campbell.
The Knights (6-0) are at home next week against Nicholas County, while Doddridge (4-2) hosts Williamstown.
