Bulldogs look to bounce back from first loss

Mountain Lions set for first action in nearly a month

MILL CREEK — Tygarts Valley’s schedule is taking another turn due to the COVID-19 pandemic with a trip to Ravenswood this evening.

The Bulldogs (5-1) were originally scheduled to host South Harrison, but with Harrison County schools orange — meaning no sporting events — officials called an audible and were able to play another school in a gold county (Jackson).

This will be the second straight week Tygarts Valley is facing an opponent for the first time ever as the Bulldogs dropped a 39-34 decision to Class AA, No. 11 Elkins last week.

Despite a close loss to the state-ranked Tigers, TV fell seven spots to 11th in this week’s Class A ratings.

Coach Rodney Bright’s senior-laden squad features running backs Caden Boggs and Daniel White, along with quarterback Josh Bright and receiver Aidan Row.

Boggs had 175 yards rushing and scored a pair of touchdowns in last Friday’s loss.

The Red Devils, meanwhile, are seeking their first win of the season after falling to 0-5 after a 41-0 setback at Ritchie County on Oct. 2

Isaiah Casto had 100 yards rushing and a score in the setback.

In another light slate of action this evening due to the pandemic, Tucker County is set to host Hundred at 7 p.m. at R.H. Armstrong Memorial Field. The Mountain Lions have been idle since facing Moorefield nearly a month ago.

Games canceled for this evening include Elkins at Bridgeport, Buckhannon-Upshur at University and Philip Barbour at Moorefield.
