PHILIPPI — Liberty claimed a 53-0 victory over Philip Barbour Friday night at George Byrer Field at BC Bank Park.

The Colts dropped to 0-3 with the setback and will remain home next Friday against Elkins as the game was moved from Wimer Stadium due to the bleachers being deemed unfit for public events.

Moorefield 44, Tucker County 28

PARSONS — Matthew Jenkins rushed for three first-half touchdowns as Moorefield claimed a 44-28 win over Tucker County Friday night at R.H. Armstrong Memorial Field at Class of 1984 Alumni Stadium.
