Round 2 – Division 1 Region C Semifinals

The Maroons break open a 28-28 game in 4th quarter to get the win

George Wythe High School, Wytheville, VA– Crunch’s New River Valley game of the week took us to Wytheville, VA where the Narrows Green Wave traveled to take on the George Wythe Maroons in a D1 Region C semifinal matchup. What a game these two squads put on in a back and forth, see-saw affair. Narrows was able to keep pace with the Maroons’ relentless ground game with their quick strike playmakers, WR/DBs 6 Kolier Pruett and 14 Carson Crigger. These two went back-to-back on special team returns for touchdowns with Pruett starting it off with a 75-yard kickoff return and then 2 minutes later Crigger returned a Maroon punt 93 yards to the house. The last one put the Green Wave up 21-14 in the second quarter. The Maroons responded with a 12-play, 68-yard drive, scoring with :06 seconds left in the half to tie the game. Both teams added a touchdown in the 3rd quarter to knot the game at 28 heading in to the last period. It was in the 4th quarter that George Wythe flexed their muscle on the offensive and defensive lines, which enabled the Maroons to pull away. The defense forced a Green Wave fumble on a sack on one of Narrows’ possessions and stopped them on downs on the other two. Meanwhile the Maroons’ offense got it going on the ground, scoring on touchdown runs of 22, 25 and 34 yards to pull away and claim the 48-28 victory. “It was a great game. I knew with their athletes, that they were so explosive, and they had me worried all week. I thought defensively, honestly, we actually played pretty good except for two plays,” said GW Coach Brandon Harner after the win. The Maroons will host Grayson County, a team they defeated a few weeks ago, for the Region C title next Friday night in Wytheville. – T-Mac
