PARSONS — Tucker County used a dominating first quarter in rolling to a 62-6 win over Hundred Friday night at R.H. Armstrong Field at Class of 1984 Alumni Stadium.

The win halted a 17-game losing skid for the Mountain Lions, who improved to 1-3 and were playing their first game since Sept. 18.

Tucker County put the game away early, jumping out to a 38-0 lead after the opening canto.

Trenton Wilfong, who rushed for 180 yards on the crisp evening, opened the scoring with a 50-yard run and Jeremy Liller returned a fumble 30 yards as the Mountain Lions led 16-0 just minutes into the contest.

J.J. Knotts added a 20-yard scoring run and Maddox Anderson had a TD reception and a scoring run as the lead grew to 38-0 entering the second quarter.

Wilfong had the lone score of the second quarter when he broke free for a 91-yard touchdown on a quarterback keeper, making it 44-0 at the intermission break.

Tucker County tacked on TD runs from Blaike Adams, Ethan Rosenau and Liller in the second half.

The Hornets, who were plagued by six turnovers, scored their lone touchdown when Jacob Kuhn took a screen pass from Everett Johnson and went in from 35 yards out.

Zack Wise led Hundred (0-7) on the ground with 90 yards rushing.

Tucker County is slated to remain home next Friday night against Gilmer County.
