Things weren't looking good for the Huntington Highlanders early in the 3rd quarter after Winfield turned a big kickoff return into a 5 yard David Gaydosz touchdown and a 17-6 lead, but momentum suddenly shifted to the Huntington side of field, as the Highlanders scored 28 unanswered points on the way to a 34-24 win over the Generals.
The win improves Huntington's record to 2-1, while the Generals fall to 1-2.
The Highlanders got off to a quick start as they scored midway through the 1st quarter on a 75 yard pass from Mark Shaver to Elijah King.
After that score, the Generals dominated the remainder of the 1st half with two second-quarter scores--a 35 yard Andy Ellington field goal and a 3 yard David Gaydosz run, setting the 10-6 halftime score in favor of Winfield.
After the 3rd quarter touchdown by Gaydosz, things changed for the positive for the struggling Highlanders as they scored four straight touchdows--a 54 yard Rashaun Page scoring run, eight and five yard touchdown runs by Paden Christian and a 48 yard scoring run by Rashaun Page. That made the score 34-17 Huntington.
Winfield scored a 4th quarter on a 28 yard pass from Toby Show to Ethan Shortridge, but it was too little, too late for the Generals.
Rashaun Page was the game's top rusher with 125 yards on 9 carries. Huntington Quarterback Mark Shaver was 3-4 through the air for 87 yards, but Shaver was injured in the 1st half and didn't play in the second half as he was replaced by talented sophomore signal caller Jaylon Johnson.
Huntington is back home next Friday night for an important Moutain State Athletic Conference matchup with the Big Reds of Parkersburg.
For a second straight year, Spring Valley grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat against Huntington High.
After trailing 29-14 with just under 10 minutes left in the game, Spring Valley scored 19 unanswered points Friday and defeated the Highlanders 33-29.
The win improves the Timberwolves record to 2-0, while Huntington falls to 1-1.
Spring Valley did its damage through the air, throwing for more than 300 yards while struggling to run against a stingy Huntington defense.
Huntington used a 69 yard touchdown catch and 47 yard put return from Toquan Hayes to set up a 20-7 halftime lead.
Spring Valley cut the lead to 20-14 with 3:50 left in the 3rd quarter on a halfback pass from Elijah Wellman to Michael Hardin, but Huntington scored 9 unanswered points over the next three minutes to take a 15-point lead.
Spring Valley then took over, scoring on a 40 yard pass from Cam Roam to Sean Hayton with 8 minutes left, followed by 15 yard pass from Roam to Elijah Wellman to cut the HHS lead to 29-27.
On the ensuring kickoff, the Timberwolves recovered and scored the winning touchdown with just over a minute left on a 50 yard pass from Roam to Hardin to set the winning 33-29 score.
Spring Valley threw for over 300 yards in the game and Hayton and Hardin had 100 yard plus receiving nights.
Huntington Fullback Paden Christian rushed for 157 yards in a losing effort.
The Timberwolves return to action next Friday night at South Charleston, while Huntington goes on the road for the first time at Winfield, a game you can hear on Newstalk 800 WVHU, starting at 7:05 pm.
