CMS falls to Logan Middle, Season Goals Still In Sight

In a battle of unbeatens, Logan Middle was able to come away with a 22-8 victory over Chapmanville last Thursday from Willis-Nisbet Stadium in Logan. There was loads of talent on both sides of the field last Thursday as both futures for Logan and Chapmanville athletics are bright with the amount of athletes both sides fielded.

In his second year, Head Coach Ashley Dalton has a deep and talented roster at Chapmanville Middle School. “Our team goals are still attainable and we are excited for Homecoming tomorrow night against Madison,” Coach Dalton stated. “I still believe we are one of the best teams in the region and still have a chance to prove that through our play the rest of the season. I believe in these kids, but the best part is that they believe in each other.”

Dakota Dalton, Jaxton Ellison, and Jacob Maynard provide Coach Dalton a lot of dangerous weapons at the middle school level. The three-headed backfield for Chapmanville gets even more dangerous for the Tigers when you add the speed and talent of Mattox Sartin, Jacob Vance, and Preston Collins on the outside. Chapmanville can also play physical football with anyone as their line play on both sides of the ball has been great so far this season. Tony Adkins, David Browning, Colton Farley, Caleb Robinette, Landon Adams and Jeffrey Baisden have paved the way for the backs to produce big numbers while producing big numbers of their own on defense. Cooper Perry and Sawyer Dalton help anchor the middle of the Tigers defense who has played very well through the first half of the season.

For Logan, Caleb Johnson, Zoe Murphy, Lucas Lambert, Bentley Williamson, Grayson Sanders, and Luvante Kenney are names for Logan fans to familiarize themselves with from the skill positions. It was Kenney’s 88-yard screen reception that closed the game out for the Timberwolves last Thursday. Along with talent at the skill positions, Logan’s physical front that includes Dakota Maynard, Carson Hale, Tripp Thompson, Ethan Hensley, and Caden Dowdy have provided good blocks and a tough defense throughout the season.

Both Chapmanville and Logan have a great talent pool at their 8th grade levels. It should make for a very fun continuation of this rivalry as these kids go into their high school programs.

Chapmanville Middle plays Madison Middle tomorrow night for the CMS Homecoming game at Barker Stadium in Chapmanville, WV. Game time is set for 7:00 PM and the D&D Sports Network will bring you coverage of the game starting at 6:50 PM.
