Keyser tries to lock up top seed at Mtn. Ridge
By early Saturday evening it will all be wrapped in a bow as the final regular-season weekend of the high school football season kicks off tonight and comes to a close tomorrow, with the state playoff fates of seven area teams still in the balance.
For once, it will be the calm after the storm
This week has been called a lot of things by a lot of people for a lot of years, but since this is a family newspaper, we’ll just call it Homecoming Week. Which means, for the 86th time, Allegany and Fort Hill will play a football game, provided, of course, anything is left standing in the wake of the biggest storm to ever hit the East Coast.
To Sizzle or not to Sizzle
Funny in a not so ha-ha way how Ray Lewis was injured last Sunday on what was his final play of the season and, perhaps, the final play of his career, although I’m not ready to bet on that yet.
Bridgeport visits Keyser in W.Va. AA showdown
Facing off in what could be the regular-season game of the year, the Bridgeport Indians (6-1), rated No. 2 in West Virginia Class AA, pays a visit to Keyser to take on the No. 4-rated Golden Tornado (6-1) in a critical match-up in the West Virginia playoff seeding chase tonight, 7 p.m., at Alumni Stadium at Tornado Alley to highlight week 9 of high school football in the area.
Southern hosts FH
A Hall of Fame Night, two Homecoming celebrations and the ongoing chase for state playoff berths highlight the weekend as Week 8 of the high school football season kicks off tonight around the area.
Still waiting for the weird part
Feeling a little down today? A little troubled? Maybe a little tense or a little you don’t know what? Believe the thing to do is just get away, maybe go to the city? Be by yourself? Get lost in the anonymity where nobody knows your name?
Area teams continue push for playoffs
Eight area teams prominently involved in two state playoff pictures are in action this weekend with nine games kicking off the weekend tonight, followed by one on Saturday night.
Campers travel to capital
Undefeated Allegany’s defense and special teams came through with flying colors last week and both units will be needed again today when the Campers travel to the nation’s capital to take on St. Albans at 1:30 p.m.
For the love of Birds, dreams do come true
Whenever the Baltimore Orioles are on the West Coast or play a late game, I can always count on hearing from Dot Yeager the next day, and on Tuesday, Sept. 18 she was money in the bank once more.
Mountain Ridge hoping for happy Homecoming
There is no time like the present and there is no time like Homecoming to gain your first win of the season, and since it is presently Homecoming at Mountain Ridge High School that is what the Miners aim to do tonight.
