James River and Bath County duked it out Friday night in Hot Springs.
Jordan Talbot and the high-flying James River offense hoping to put points on the board. But it was the Chargers who would charge in front on the ground. Dillon Frye would score the first points of the game, going right up the gut on Bath County's second drive of the game for a 7 to nothing lead.
Frye's quarterback, Josh Robertson, didn't want to be outdone. He would keep it himself in the second quarter and go down the sidelines winning the footrace to the endzone, and it was a 14 to nothing Chargers lead.
The Knights looking to get things on track. Talbot will go up top. His player would makes the catch and is ruled in bounds by the official to put James River in scoring territory.
But on 4th down, Talbot will go over the middle, Frye is there to knock it away and thwart the Knights chance to break on the scoreboard.
The River never did crack the endzone, while the Chargers were able to get there twice more and win the Pioneer district with a 28 to nothing victory.
