  • Cavs, Devils get defensive

    HILLSVILLE -- One is seeking its first win, the other is finding a groove. One is airing it out, the other is running over folks. But despite their differences, Grayson County and Carroll County have one thing in common -- they put up one heck of a defense a week ago. Carroll County (2-2) dominated the first half defensively and the second half offensively en route to a 33-14 thrashing of Tazewell.

  • Cavaliers control Tazewell

    HILLSVILLE -- After dominating the first half in terms of time of possession, Carroll County gradually pulled away from Tazewell in the second half and took home a 33-14 win in a Southwest District game at Tommy Thompson Field. For aficionados of ground control offense, the first offensive series of the game was a thing of beauty.

  • Bobcats throttle Tide, 42-0

     With both Radford and Galax entering Friday night’s game winless on the 2009 season, one was bound to collect its first win — unfortunately for Galax, the Bobcats scored early, quickly and often en route to a 42-0 nondistrict pounding of the Maroon Tide on its home field.

  • Maroon Tide wins third straight

     Galax ran its win streak to three matches and in the process opened Mountain Empire District play in strong fashion, knocking off defending district champion Fort Chiswell 25-18, 25-17, 25-7 in an MED match Thursday in Galax.

  • Rural Retreat survives Grayson

    RURAL RETREAT -- How do you turn the ball over seven times and still win a football game?  That’s the question the Grayson County Blue Devils were asking themselves last Friday night after losing to Rural Retreat 14-6 in a nondistrict game.  It was truly a battle of miscues for both teams.

  • EastMont overpowers Tide

    Galax was overmatched by a powerful Eastern Montgomery Friday night en route to a 41-6 thumping of the Maroon Tide in its first home game of the season. The Tide (0-3) fell behind early and its secondary was no match for the Mustangs’ dynamic quarterback Shawn Christian, a 6-foot-3 160-pound junior who racked up 218 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
