Blacksburg leads at break but Hidden Valley scores win with big second half

Bogle Field, Roanoke, VA – The Blacksburg Bruins made the trip to Roanoke looking for their first win of the year. Coach Leonard had his team ready to play, and commented after the game that “we just had our best week of practice, and I’m thinking we can keep building on that”. The Bruins put together a 43-yard drive in the 2nd quarter on the running of RB 34 David Ajayi and the passing of QB 14 Spencer Campbell that resulted in 11-yard touchdown on a 4th down play. They carried that 7-0 lead all the way into halftime and the Bruin faithful had to have had the feeling that this could be their night. But it wasn’t to be. The Titans came out and executed a picture, perfect onside kick to start the 3rd quarter which they were able to eventually turn into points, tying the game on their opening 2nd half drive. The score stayed tied heading into the 4th quarter when Titan seniors TB/LB 5 Max Pardon and WR/DB 20 Joey Strong took over. Their combined play helped Hidden Valley put 21 points on the board in the period and claim the River Ridge District victory 28-7. Despite the loss, Blacksburg Coach Zack Leonard was encourage by his team’s efforts, “I’m proud of the way they fought… (it was) a step in the right direction, lots to work on, but I saw some progress and I am excited about that.”
