In the school's first playoff appearance since 2006, Huntington High rushed for more than 400 yards in a 56-20 shellacking of tradition-rich Parkersburg in the first round of the Class AAA playoffs Friday night at Bob Sang Field. Elijah King finished the contest with 206 all-purpose yards -- 142 on nine carries and 64 on two catches - with two touchdowns to help lead the charge. Quarterback Mark Shaver also finished with one of his best games in a Huntington High uniform, accounting for three touchdown passes and a 24-yard jaunt that capped the scoring in the game's final minute. The win was Huntington High's first playoff win since a 55-28 win over Nitro in the 2003 season. It was the first home playoff game at HHS since 2004. Huntington improves to 8-3 and will make the long trip to Martinsburg for a second round playoff game on Saturday. The Big Reds end their season at 7-4.
Story from Grant Traylor, Herald-Dispatch
Also Friday, Martinsburg tailback Chris Perkins gave Woodrow Wilson a steady diet of offense as he rushed for 136 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the top-ranked and undefeted Bulldogs to a 49-13 victory in the opening round of the West Virginia Class AAA state playoffs at Cobourn Field. Perkins helped the Bulldogs in every aspect as he rushed for two touchdowns, caught a pass for another and returned a punt 93 yards for his fourth score to give the Bulldogs a 28-13 halftime lead. He also intercepted two passes, one in the end zone, to turn back the Flying Eagles. The win was the first step in Martinsburg’s title defense and extended its winning streak to 25 games. Martinsburg defeated Brook 30-0 in last year's AAA title game. The Bulldogs lost in championship contests in 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2006.

A real heartbreaker on Highlander hill on Friday night as Huntington High celebrated Senior Night in the wrong way with a 28-27 loss to the Logan Wildcats.
The loss came despite the fact that Huntington held a 27-13 lead with less than five minutes left in the game.
Logan dominated the game's first half with two touchdowns. The Cats used nearly 10 minutes of the first quarter as Joe Street scored the first of his three touchdowns.

After intermission, Huntington's offense exploded with four unanswered touchdowns.
The Highlanders got third touchdown runs by Paden Christian, Charles Crawford and Nick Tubbs to take a 20-13 lead and added a fourth quarter Lamar Thompson touchdown run to go up 27-13 with only a little under five minutes.
The wheels then fell off the Highlander wagon as Logan used a long pass from Khaleel Reynolds to Brant Williams to set up a Joe Street 1 yard run to cut the Huntington lead to 27-20 with 3:06 left.
Logan successfuly attempted an onside kick as the Highlanders could not come up with the boot, so the Wildcats had a short field and plenty of time and they used it well as Joe Street scored with :56.9 left and Logan secured the win on a halfback pass from Street to Brant Williams.
With the win, Logan improves to 6-1, while Huntington falls to 4-3.

In all three cases, Huntington failed to add the extra point conversion, a fact that would later haunt the Highlanders, as Midland drove nearly 80 yards in the last 2 minutes to score on a 5 yard pass from Stephen Hamer to Jason Brooks. Chris Molina's extra point tied the game at 24, setting up overtime.
Huntington won the coin toss and scored on its possession on a 1 yard Paden Christian run, but Jarod Martin missed the all-important extra point.
