A 36-yard interception return by Kyle Moore gave the host team the ball on the Ripley 19 on its second possession and on the first play Mathess went over right guard to the end zone with 5:11 left on the clock. Four plays later Ripley was forced to punt from its own one yard line and Camden Rutherford called for a fair catch and caught the ball on the Viking five after the four yard punt. Two plays later Mathess went over the left side with 2:55 showing in the first period.

With 33 seconds left before the half PHS quarterback Jacob Bock lobbed a pass to Martin at the five yard line and the ninth grade Big Red tipped the ball, juggled it and then came down with it in a battle with the defender before racing into the end zone to complete a 39 yard play. Gage Fiore’s conversion run made it 30-0 at the half despite PHS running just 13 plays to 34 to Ripley.
Second half scores came on a 43 yard pass play to Martin and a one yard run by Eli Ash after Ripley went for it on fourth down from their own three yard line and failed.

PHS Frosh Jolt JM 38-8
The freshman football team completed the season-opening sweep of near perfection for Parkersburg High School by defeating visiting John Marshall 38-8 Wednesday evening at Stadium Field.
The varsity team beat St. Albans in a mercy-rule shortened game on Friday while the junior varsity accomplished the same mercy-rule shortened feat on Monday against St. Albans. The freshmen followed suit with the third straight mercy-rule shortened contest as they dominated the Monarch ninth graders.
So heading into the second week of the season, all three PHS football teams are 1-0 with mercy-rule shortened victories under their belts. This has to be a record since this is the first year the 35-point mercy rule has been put into effect in West Virginnia.
Wednesday evening it was Anthony Craig leading the way with a pair of touchdown runs and 93 yards rushing. The PHS frosh had a 228-90 advantage in total yardage. C.J. Wade paced the defense.

2016 Jayvees

Midland Downs Jayvees 34-6

ONA - Jacob Bock and Jacob Woodyard hooked up on an 80 yard touchdown reception but the PHS jayvees dropped a 34-6 decision to Cabell Midland here Oct. 17.

C. J. Wade led the defensive effort for PHS with two quarterback sacks.

Jayvees Lose to Marietta, 6-2

With the final score being a baseball-like 6-2 you would expect a football game to be a defensive struggle and you would be right in the case of Marietta’s victory over host Parkersburg in a junior varsity matchup Monday night at Stadium Field.
Marietta won the game despite finished with minus seven yards rushing on 24 attempts, collected just eight first downs and only 123 yards in total offense.
But PHS fared worse with three turnovers, just six first downs and only 114 yards in total offense.
But the Big Reds jayvees still held a 2-0 lead with just over five minutes left to play before Marietta took advantage of a 34 yard pass completion to Tanner Stack that set up a one yard quarterback sneak for a touchdown by Corbin Alkire with 5:09 left in the game.
Alkire and Stack were the only effective Marietta offensive weapons as Alkire completed 12 of 29 passes for 130 yards with Stack catching seven of the passes for 81 yards.
Thirteen times in the game the PHS defense held Marietta to minus yardage as Jace Turner, Brandon Braham, Jacob Woodyard and Brandon Hines led the way.
The first half saw PHS fail to get into Marietta territory while the only Tiger threat came as the second quarter came to an end with the Tigers completing a pass to the PHS one yard line.
In the third quarter the Big Reds took advantage of good field position to move the ball to the Marietta eight yard line. The big play was a 26 yard scramble by quarterback Jake Johnson. But the threat ended with two sacks and two incomplete passes.
PHS got the ball back three plays later on an interception by Hines at the Marietta 17 but three plays later the Big Reds returned the favor by throwing an interception of their own.
Starting from their own five, the Tigers got a first down but a sack by Turner put Marietta back in the shadow of their own goal line and on fourth down the snap from center on a punt attempt wound up rolling out of the end zone for a safety with 9:46 remaining in the game.
A 59 yard boot on the ensuing free kick got Marietta out of trouble and after PHS failed to convert a first down and had to punt, the Tigers got the ball to start on the PHS 47.
On the first play following the punt, Alkire hit Stack with a 34 yard completion to the 13 yard line. It took seven plays but Marietta finally punched the ball into the end zone for the touchdown with 5:09 remaining.
The next PHS possession saw no less than five penalties before an interception gave the Tigers back the ball on the Big Red 17.
PHS held and got the ball back on that same 17 yard line. A pass from Jacob Bock to Braham on the first play raised some hope before four straight incomplete passes ended things for the home team.

Extra Points Difference as PHS Jayvee Team Falls, 24-18
Extra points were the difference Monday night at Stadium Field as Hurricane notched a 24-18 junior varsity football victory over PHS despite both teams scoring three touchdowns apiece.
The visiting Redskins converted all three of their two-point tries after touchdowns while PHS failed on all three attempts.
PHS scored first on a 43 yard Jake Johnson interception return and then regained the lead in the third quarter by a 12-8 margin thanks to a one yard run by Jacob Bock. Johnson added another touchdown in the final 2:53 of the game on a one yard run to pull within 24-18 and tried to lead his team for a tying scoring in the final 1:10 only to run out of downs on the Hurricane 16 when his pass in the end zone to Dylan Richards was deflected but nearly caught anyway with 18 seconds remaining.
Johnson ran for 75 yards and passed for 15 yards in two quarters of play while Bock had 44 yards rushing and two passing in two quarters.
The winning TD for Hurricane came on a 65 yard run up the middle by Christian Hill, who finished with 147 yards rushing on 10 carries.
Jacob Woodyard was the leading tackler for the PHS jayvees, now 1-1 with a game Monday at Capital.

Jayvees Win 3rd Straight Game

Holding Capital to minus 17 yards on the ground and only 96 yards and four first downs for the game, the PHS jayvees won their straight game game Monday night with a 13-0 victory over the visiting Cougars.

The Little Reds scored on the second play of the game on a 25 yard pass from Karson Snyder to Rylan Hamilton and tacked on an insurance touchdown on an 11 yard pass from Snyder to Easton Martin in the second period. However, that second TD wasn't really needed since Capital never threatened in the game, advancing only as far as the PHS 19 yard line one time.

A big kickoff return by Dakoda Sims set up the first score while the second came at the end of a seven-play, 61 yard drive that was highlighted by Snyder passes of 27 yards to Hamilton and 17 yards to Zach Blosser. Martin hauled in the TD pass when he out-leaped the defender in the back of the end zone with 2:06 left in the first half.

Snyder finished with 11 completions in 13 attempts for 194 yards and also ran for 54 yards on 14 attempts. He had five different targets as Hamilton caught three for 47 yards, Zach Blosser 3-49, Easton Martin 2-29, Sims 1-30 and Joel Carty 1-12.

Defensively, Issiah Gossett and Alex Lott had five tackles each while Davey McNemar had five. Gossett had a sack and a fumble recovery while Hamilton came up with an interception.

Snyder Passes PHS Over Warren, 26-6

Karson Snyder, playing his first ever game at quarterback, led the Big Red jayvees to a 26-6 win over visiting Warren by throwing for 196 yards and two touchdowns while also leading the team in rushing.

Snyder completed eight of 10 passes and ran the ball 14 times for 38 yards in his first endeavor as a signal caller. Easton Martin caught four of the passes for 111 yards and a 45 yard touchdown while Rylan Hamilton caught a 50 yard TD bomb from Snyder. Jarrid Winters and Graham Nesselrode had touchdown runs for PHS in their jayvee opener.

Defensively, PHS did not allow a score as Warren's only points came on a punt return. Led by Kendall Leary's 10 tackles, the Big Reds gave up just two first downs and only 27 yards in total offense to the Warriors.

A 41 yard pass from Snyder to Martin set up the game's first TD, a 19 yard run up the middle by Winters early in the second quarter.

Warren answered with the punt return TD by Alex Mills to cut the lead to 7-6 but Snyder found Hamilton on the next offensive play by PHS for a 50 yard TD play. On the ensuing kickoff, Dakoda Sims recovered a fumble and three plays later Snyder and Martin hooked up again, this time for a touchdown that made it 19-6 at the half.

PHS fumbled away two scoring chances in the second half before finally reaching the end zone again on Nesselrode's 13 yard run with just under two minutes left to play.

Parkersburg's freshman football team suffered its first defeat of the season Wednesday night, but did not go down without a fight as they dropped a 20-14 heart-breaker to undefeated (4-0) Wheeling Park.

Wheeling Park scored in each of the first three quarters while the PHS 9th graders got two long passes for their scores. Tyee Gibson went 70 yards in the first quarter and Nathaniel Steed hauled in a 62 yard scoring pass in the third quarter to account for the PHS points.

The Big Red frosh threatened two other times, moving to the Park seven yard line late in the second quarter only to run out of downs and with six minutes to play in the game the home team drove to the 16 yard line but again threw an incomplete pass on fourth down.

Outstanding on defense for PHS was Elijah Hearn, Steven Hickel, Steed and Gibson.

Freshmen Hang On To Beat Hurricane 22-20

Parkersburg's freshman football team built a 22-0 lead through two and a half quarters but then had to hang on to defeat visiting Hurricane 22-20 Wednesday night at Stadium Field.

The Little Reds did not secure the victory until forcing three straight incomplete Hurricane passes in the final seconds with the ball on their own 31 yard line. The Redskins had scored three times in the fourth quarter, the final with 1:54 remaining on a 54 yard run by the quarterback, to pull within two points. But the would-be tying conversion attempt was thwarted when Nathaniel Steed batted the ball away in the back of the end zone.

Steed, who broke up two other passes on the night, also scored a touchdown on a 48 yard pass reception from Seth Dailey in the middle of the third quarter and caught two other passes during the game for a total of 69 receiving yards.

The PHS 9th graders scored first on the first play of the second quarter when Tyee Gibson reached the end zone from eight yards out to cap a 48 yard drive. Gibson had a 22 yard run and an 11 yard reception on the drive.

Zion Atkinson had the other touchdown on a four yard run with 2:43 left before the half. He also had a 16 yard run on the five play drive which covered 43 yards. The freshman fullback ran for two of the two point conversions.

Elijah Hearn led the defense with 14 tackles from his linebacker position.

Jayvees Blank Beckley 34-0

Noah Weaver ran for three touchdowns as the junior varsity Big Reds won their second game in a row and turned in another stellar defensive effort by holding visiting Beckley Woodrow Wilson to minus seven yards in total offense.

While Weaver scored on runs of five, one and one yards and rushed for 73 yards on 12 carries, Ethan Airhart ran for one touchdown and 80 yards on 10 carries and completed eight of 10 passes for another 68 yards and a touchdown to Easton Martin.

But it was the defense, led by freshman Tyler Lawrentz along with Tyler Greathouse and Zac Perry that was the highlight of game by limiting Beckley to minus seven yards on the ground and no completions with two interceptions (by Martin and Jarrid Winters) through the air. Beckley ran just 12 plays in the first half for minus 24 yards and one first down and in the second half managed to run just 10 plays for 17 yards and, again, just one first down. Just six Beckley plays produced positive yardage.

Taking over the ball in the middle of the first quarter after Winters' interception, the PHS jayvees proceeded to put together a classic drive, going 80 yards on a whopping 19 plays to score on Airhart's five yard run with 4:08 left before the half. The 10-minute drive saw Weaver and Dakoda Sims do a lot of the rushing work while Airhart hit Joel Carty for two completions for 17 yards on the drive.

PHS scored twice more in the second period as a fumble recovery by Jesse McGrew on the Beckley five yard line set up Weaver's first score and an 18 yard pass from Airhart to Martin got the second with 22 seconds remaining before the half.

Airhart engineered another nice drive in the third quarter, going 67 yards on "just" 12 plays with Weaver getting TD number two while the final TD came on a nine play, 82-yard possession with Sims, Airhart and Weaver all getting big runs.

Zach Blosser, Ethan Airhart and Dakoda Sims scored touchdowns in the first quarter within a span of less than four minutes to power the Parkersburg jayvees to a 24-2 win over visiting South Charleston on Oct. 7.

South Charleston went for it on fourth down on their first two possessions inside their own 40 yard line and PHS came up with the stop both times to set up quick scores on runs of 32 and 35 yards by Blosser and Airhart. Then a fumble recovery by Jesse McGrew gave PHS the ball back on the South Charleston 10 yard line and three plays later Sims scored. Josh Roney, who kicked the second extra point, added a 25 yard field goal in the second quarter and after that the Big Red defense made it stand up for the victory.

With Tyler Greathouse leading the way, the PHS defense held South Charleston to minus 24 yards on the ground. Sims had a fumble recovery and an interception for the winners, who got 46 yards rushing from Noah Weaver.

Brooke scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, the final one coming by a matter of inches by a stretched out receiver and held on to defeat PHS 14-13 in a jayvee game at PHS on Sept. 25.

PHS got scores from Trevor Woodyard and Dyland Richards. Woodyard was forced to play quarterback for the first time in his life because of injuries to the Big Reds' backup quarterbacks. Jonathan Null led the Big Red defense, which held Brooke to just 133 total yards, with 11 tackles. PHS had an interception return touchown by Stephen Dailey called back in the second quarter by a penalty.
