Game Statistics / Game Photographs
ONA – Cabell Midland used a familiar theme as it continued its recent mastery over Parkersburg here Friday night in cruising to a 31-10 victory.
The Knights won their third straight game of the year after an opening loss to George Washington and beat the Big Reds for the 11th time in a row with their usual time-consuming, run-based offense. Midland ran 65 plays to just 43 for PHS and piled up 483 yards in total offense, 473 of it on the ground. The Knights completed just one pass.
Meanwhile the Big Reds dropped their second game in a row to even their season’s record at 2-2 despite being able to move the ball well at times on offense but coming up short and had to settle for a field goal and a third quarter touchdown on a 22 yard pass from David Parsons to Anthony Ice.
Parsons threw for 147 yards as he completed 14 of 26 passes with Ice catching six for 51 and Austin Fleming four for 66 including a one-hand grab in the fourth quarter.
But Midland had a trio of 100-yard rushers in Zachy Roberts (9-117), Curtis Jones (19-125) and quarterback Ryan Wolfe (14-123) and got two touchdowns from freshman Kylan Grace, who ran for 70 yards himself on just nine carries.
Midland scored a touchdown in each of the first two quarters before Casey Stanley kicked a 31-yard field goal only to have the Knights answer with no time left on the clock with an Olivia Charles 23-yard field goal.
The Knights took the opening kickoff and drove 85 yards on 12 plays, all on the ground, for the touchdown. Faced with a fourth and one on their own 29 the Knights gambled and got a 26 yard run from Wolfe. They scored from the four to cap the 6:25 drive.
After PHS had a four-and-out, Midland got the ball near midfield but again tried for a first down on a fourth and 10 to go but came up inches short on their only pass completion of the night.
After a PHS punt, the Knights put together an eight-play, 47-yard scoring drive that was helped by a third-and-12 facemask penalty against the visitors. Wolfe’s one-yard run came with 7:30 left in the half and made the score 14-0.
A 17-yard run by Parsons and a 20 yard catch and run by Austin Fleming enabled PHS to drive from its own 31 for a first down at the Midland 14 but had to settle for Stanley’s field goal with 4:20 on the clock.
After a change of possessions, Midland got the ball on its own 35 after PHS failed on fourth down and five. The Knights ran off six plays and advanced to the PHS 11 before settling for their field goal.
A five-play drive highlighted by a 29 yard run from Grace enabled the home team to put its third touchdown on the board with 9:11 on the clock and then got a break when PHS failed to cover the ensuing kickoff and Midland had the ball back at the PHS 36. Seven running plays produced another touchdown and the lead expanded to 31-3.
PHS responded with a three-minute touchdown drive highlighted by Fleming’s one-hand reception and run for 35 yards. The touchdown came with a pass near the sideline in the end zone to Ice to cut the lead to 31-10 with just under two minutes left to play.
