Valley Routed by Cameron
Despite starting out strong and threatening to score twice in the first quarter, Valley high school fell to 1-6 on the season in a lopsided 62-8 loss to the Cameron Dragons on Friday October 8, in Pine Grove.
The undefeated 6-0 Dragons only led 8-0 after one quarter, however they extended the lead to 38-0 at the half and never looked back on their way to the big win. The Lumberjacks had two opportunities in the first quarter driving into the red zone before suffering an interception and turning the ball over on downs to come away without scoring.
Valley Coach Logan Miller said, “For the first quarter and a half, I thought we battled really well.” “We really controlled the line of scrimmage and were driving the ball, there were just a couple of miscues that we had.”
The Lumberjacks made some changes in their offense plan for the game and it seemed to be working well in the first quarter. Instead of running their usual spread offense they decided to run the ball between tackles. Coach Miller moved offensive lineman Mark Liggett into the backfield where the big guy responded very well picking up 93 yards and a score on 34 carries.
Although the Lumberjacks fell big to a great Class A team they remained confident and held their heads high knowing they are getting better with each outing. Coach Miller said they only have two seniors on the team and he looks for this game to motivate his team the remainder of the season. Miller and the Lumberjacks will look to rebound on Friday night when they host Hundred in the annual backyard brawl of Wetzel County.
