Page 6 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, September 10. 2009 A tale of two halves by Allen Gregory At St. Paul on Thursday, September 3, it was a tale of two halves as Hurley eked out a 28- 26 victorv over the home- standing Deacons. It was another tough night for the luckless Deacons as they not only lost a narrow decision in the game but they may have lost Trevor Hileman for the sea- son as he injured his throwing hand on a td toss late in the first half. In the first half the Deacons outscored the visiting Rebs, 20- 6, while the Rebs turned the trick in the second half by a score of 22-6 thus eking out a 28-26 victory. An alert Deacon defense had the Deacons up 14-0 with just over half the first quarter elapsed. Young, alert Deacon defend- er Dave Kiser and Reid Edmonds made the plays that gave the Deacons the early lead. Sophomore Kiser got his td when he picked up a Hurley fumble near the 45 yard line and raced untouched to the end zone with about 7:46 left in the first quarter. Less than two minutes later freshman Reid Edmonds picked 0ffa Hurley pass and scampered 16 yards for another Deacons score. Addison Rasnick ran in the two point conversion for a 14-0 St. Paul lead with 6:16 left in the first quarter. The Deacon td's came in Hurley's first and second pos- sessions of the game. The Deacons took the opening kick off and got a first down on their first play from scrimmage as Trevor Hileman hit Edmonds with a pass good for 14 yards. The Deacons then had to call a time out and also suffered a delay of game penalty when they could not get a play off in time. Unable to overcome the penalty the Deacons were forced to punt. Dallas Hileman got offa good punt and Hurley put the ball in play at their 31 yard line. Three running plays by Rebel Gary Blankenship netted 18 yards before a botched handoff resulted in a fumble that Kiser picked up and ran in for a Deacon score. Just three scrimmage plays later Edmonds stepped in front of Zack Dotson and picked off an Austin Cooper pass and hustled into the end zone. When Addison Rasnick ran in the two point conversion St. Paul led 14- 0. The Deacons' Edmonds would get another first half pick and his mates would recover three more fumbles however the Deacon offense could not turn those mistakes into scores. Each team did, however, get first half scores from their offense. Hurley got theirs late in the first quarter when Cooper hit Dustin Wayrick with a 29 yard td pass. The run for a two point conversion failed with 3:56 left in the first quarter. The Deacon td came with three seconds left in the first half when Denver Fritz connected with Bryce Lawson on a half back pass that covered 44 yards. Lawson stepped out of bounds at the five. The td came on a Hileman to Lawson pass that covered two yards. The two point conversion failed and St. Paul had a 20-6 halftime lead. Hurley opened the second half with a nice drive that the Deacons finally stopped at the Deacon 18 yard line. Without an experienced quarterback, Corey Ellis who was filling in for Hileman was hit hard on a play and fumbled and the ball was picked up near the 10 yard line by John Lane who ran for the Hurley score. Cooper passed to Wayrick for a two point conversion and the score was 20 St. Paul, 14 Hurley with 7:03 left in the third. Later in the third canto Hurley took over on the Deacon 31 and moved in for the tying score. Blankenship got the score on an 11 yard run. The two point conversion try failed and the score was tied with 2:34 left in the third canto. The Deacons came right back to retake the lead with 1:32 left in the period when Lawson threw a pass to Edmonds. The play covered 74 yards. The two point conversion failed and St. Paul had a 26-20 lead. Midway through the final period, Hurley put together the game winning drive that covered about 60 yards. Blankenship covered the last 11 yards. The winning two point conversion came on a pass from Cooper to Blankenship. The Deacons play Ervinton at home on Friday, September 11. it IN CASTLEWOOD GAME..Castlewood Blue Devil Elliott Wohlgamuth made this first-quarter interception against Thomas Walker during the Cumberland District game played at the CHS field on Friday. Thomas Walker won 52-0. Devils can't get it going by Allen Gregory Castlewood Blue Devils could not get it going on Friday, September 4 and lost 52-0 to the Pioneers from Thomas Walker. The Pioneers unleashed a lot of frustration on the Devils. On the previous Friday, the Pioneers lost their season's opener to J.J. Kelly by a score of 49-0 without getting a first down so they (the Pioneers) were a" little testy when they hit B.C. White Field on Friday. The Pioneers scored in every quarter and had a freshman and sophomore. The freshman's Cody Cain's runs came in the final period and were on runs of 19 and 35 yards. Jared Brewer, the sophomore, scored on runs of 9 and 20. Brewer's nine yard canter came in the first quarter while his 20 yard run came in the second quarter. The Pioneers also got td runs of 10 yards by Steven Escobar, a junior and two td runs of one and two yards from senior, Cody Williams. The Pioneers also got a safety and a pass interception return by Corey Yeary for their other scores. The Pioneers rushed 43 times for 402 yards while Castlewood hit 37 yards on 35 carries. Devin Puckett caught four passes for the Devils, one was an outstanding diving catch that covered 22 yards. His four catches totaled 85 yards. Elliot Wohlgamuth was the work horse for the Devils run- ning the offense from quarter- back and working hard on defense from his safety position. .He added an interception. Greg Kiser had eight tackles for the Blue Devil defense. The Blue Devils journey to Pound on Friday, September 11 for their next game. Devils drop match to Indians by Allen Gregory none.
