Richlands rolls after half

-A A +A

Carroll County dominated the first half but couldn’t hold on to a 13-7 lead, falling to the Blues.

By Craig Worrell, Sports Editor

HILLSVILLE -- Finding itself caught up in a close game at halftime is nothing new to Richlands this year. Finding a way to deal with it isn’t unfamiliar, either. The Blue Tornado scored on its first two possessions of the second half and came from behind to knock off Carroll County 21-13 in a battle of Southwest District unbeatens at Tommy Thompson Field. The win gives Richlands (8-1 overall, 5-0 district) its sixth straight SWD title, while the Cavaliers (6-3, 4-1) are left waiting for the school’s first district crown in football.
