Radford’s balance on both sides of the ball produces win over Galax

Galax High School, Galax, VA – Radford broke open a tight ballgame with the big play Friday night. The Bobcats spotted the Maroon Tide a 7-0 lead on RB/LB 9 Tedruhn Tucker’s 2-yard run to start the second quarter. Radford Head Coach Michael Crist was impressed with Galax. “They’re big, strong, so fundamental up front. That’s as good a unit as we’re going to see.” Radford answered back on their next drive with a 33-yard TD pass from QB 7 Landen Clark to WR/DB 4 Xavier Joplin. Clark was the difference all night going 8/12, 233 yards and 4TDs passing. The Junior also had two big interceptions at Safety. “He’s a baller. He’s a true quarterback.” Radford scored on their next two possessions to go up 21-7 at the break. Clarks’s 86-140 yard pass to VT signee, WR 8 Marcell Baylor showed off the Senior’s speed, as he darted through tacklers and sprinted to the endzone. “All week we talked about holding on to the ball, gaining yardage, and keeping them off the field,” said Galax Head Coach Shane Allen. “We’ve got a lot of work to do to get better.” Clark added two more TD tosses to WRs 3 T.J. Aursby and 5 Parker Prioleau for 19 and 71 yards respectively. The Bobcat defense did their part holding Galax to 185 yards on the ground and forcing 3 turnovers.
