Big Reds Fall To Spring Valley
Injuries and turnovers made things tough for Parkersburg’s Big Reds tonight as dropped a 34-10 decision to visiting Spring Valley.
While Spring Valley used a balanced attack to grind out 480 yards on 66 plays, PHS lost two two-way starters early in the game, turned the ball over four times (three interceptions and a fumble) and could muster just 203 yards on 38 plays as they dropped their second game in a row.
The Big Reds started the game off with a good drive that resulted in a 35 yard field goal by Casey Stanley with just under four minutes elapsed. A 30-yard run by Xadrian Snodgrass was the big play on the drive as the senior running back was hit at the line but spun out and raced up the left sideline to the Spring Valley 21. Two more Snodgrass carries moved the ball to a first and goal at the six yard line but a false start penalty was followed by a one yard game, an incomplete pass and a sack.
PHS lost Kevin Hancock on that first series with an ankle injury and would lose Snodgrass with an ankle injury in the middle of the second quarter.
The Big Reds forced a punt on the next series but three plays later Ty Bartrum of the Timberwolves intercepted a pass and returned it 34 yards for the go-ahead score with 1:51 left in the first quarter.
PHS could have answered on the ensuing offensive effort but Bryson Singer threw a long pass to a receiver who had no defender within 20 yards but turned the wrong way and could not make the catch on what would have been an easy touchdown. That was followed by two more false start penalties and a punt.
The visitors made it 13-3 on their next possession thanks to a 48 yard pass from Dalton Fouch to Ben Turner and Fouch would follow that up with a 28 yard pass to Bartrum that pushed the score to 19-3.
With just 1:07 left before the half, PHS hit the end zone on a David Parsons 41 yard pass and run play to Stanley, who caught the ball on the sideline, side-stepped a defender and raced untouched for the touchdown to make it 19-10 at the half after he kicked the extra point.
Spring Valley started the second half with a 65-yard, nine play drive that was capped by Bartrum’s three-yard run. A 27 yard pass to Bartrum was the big play.
PHS took the kickoff and drove to the Spring Valley nine yard line in an effort to close the gap but Parsons was intercepted in the end zone by Bartrum. Another Big Red threat in the fourth quarter was also thwarted by an interception in the end zone while the visitors got a break earlier in the final stanza when they recovered a PHS fumble on the Big Red 11 yard line.
Jace Caldwell led the winners with 107 yards on 15 carries while Fouch completed 11 of 17 passes for 193 yards with Bartrum catching four for 85. The Timberwolves had no turnovers and piled up 26 first downs.
Snodgrass had 66 yards rushing on seven carries for PHS despite playing less than half the game while sophomore Parsons was eight of 12 passing for 116 yards and two interceptions. Singer caught five passes for 50 yards.
Zach Howard and Austin Fleming (2 sacks) paced the PHS defense
