The Chapmanville Tigers got back to their winning ways on Friday when they knocked off the visiting Nitro Wildcats, 47-0.
The Tigers (3-1) were coming off a loss at Winfield the week before and wasted little time hopping on the scoreboard in front of the home crowd when Kohl Farmer found the end zone on a 4-yard run. John Ferrell’s kick made it a 7-0 lead with 9:31 left in the opening quarter. Farmer scored again later in the period on a 3-yard run.
Farmer added his third score of the game on a 1-yard run early in the second quarter, but the ensuing kick was blocked. Adam Mullins found the end zone on a 3-yard jet sweep pass from Brody Dalton to increase Chapmanville’s lead to 26-0 at the half.
Farmer crushed any comeback hopes from Nitro when he took the second half kickoff and raced 85 yards for the touchdown. Farmer added his fifth touchdown of the game on a 27-yard run. The last score came on an 18-yard pass from Dalton to Jacob Blair.
Dalton was 15-of-25 for 184 yards passing and 2 touchdowns. He also had 4 carries for 47 yards.
Farmer finished with 19 carries for 134 yards and 4 rushing touchdowns to go with his kick return for a score and 1 reception for 4 yards. Mullins had 2 carries for 20 yards and 6 receptions for 97 yards and 1 touchdown. Blair had his lone catch go for 18 yards and a touchdown. Jacob Topping had 4 receptions for 27 yards. Austin Adkins recorded 2 carries for 21 yards and 2 catches for 27 yards. Ferrell made 5 point after kicks in the win.
Chapmanville will now head up 119 for a huge clash with the Scott Skyhawks. With Chapmanville projected to be tied for 9th when the official rankings are released and the Skyhawks like to be in 5th, this game will have huge playoff implications.
