Tug Valley Crushes Mount View

The 8th ranked (Class A) Tug Valley Panthers jumped ahead early and never looked back as they throttled the home standing Mount View Golden Knights, 42-6, on Friday in Welch.

Tug Valley (6-1) wasted no time jumping on top as Buddy Marcum took the opening kick and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown. Aiden Bosserman’s PAT kick made it 7-0. Marcum scored his second touchdown a few minutes later when he caught a 33-yard touchdown pass from Preston May to make it 14-0. The Panthers would score again in the opening quarter when May threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Ashton Davis to make the score 21-0.

The Panthers added to their lead in the second quarter. First, Bryson Elia found the end zone on a 4-yard run to make it 28-0. May then threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Elia to make it a 35-0 game. Tug Valley scored one last time when Adam Slone scored on a 1-yard run.

At the half, both teams agreed to shorten the game to 6 minute quarters with a running clock.
