In football action last week:



Riverside 14, Hurricane 13



Chase Upton nailed the game-winning PAT kick after Chad McClure’s one-yard TD run in overtime to allow the Warriors to even their record at 1-1.

McClure provided the earlier TD on a 36-yard run.

Riverside is idle this week before visiting Parkersburg September 16.



Chapmanville 48, Valley 0



The young Greyhounds were blanked on the road Friday.

“We made a lot of mistakes,” said VHS coach Benny Hopkins, who said his team registered six fumbles. “Chapmanville’s a lot better this year, and we just didn’t play.”

Valley opens the home portion of its slate at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Class AA Clay.

“They’ve got a pretty good team,” Hopkins said of the Panthers. “We can’t make a lot of mistakes or get anybody hurt.

“We’ll do the best we can and try to stay alive.”



Peterstown 36, Valley Middle 14



The VMS squad faced a tough Peterstown unit to open 2005.

“Peterstown’s an excellent football team,” said Valley coach Chip Warden. “They’ve won the conference three out of the last four years.”

Warden says he sees some improvement in his 15-player team.

“We were a lot better than we were last year at this time,” he said. “Up front, we’re much better than last year.”

The Greyhounds received passing touchdowns from quarterback Jack Simms to receivers Andre Wright and Nick Acord, and Simms provided the two-point conversion.

VMS suffered two first-half fumbles.

Valley plays at Ansted at 6 p.m. Thursday.
