HONAKER –– Galax was able to absorb a quick 1-2 punch by Honaker at the outset of its Western Section Division 1 second-round game. A similar salvo by the Tigers to close the first half proved to be too much to overcome.
Honaker had two touchdowns before Galax had three offensive snaps, and the Tigers added two scores 16 seconds apart just before the half to advance with a 42-14 win Saturday at Fuller Field.
The Western Section’s No. 1 seed, Honaker (11-1) will host No. 5 J.I. Burton (9-3) in the state quarterfinals this weekend.
