HAYSI, Va. -

Altavista had a long haul Saturday, playing at Haysi in far Southwest Virginia on Saturday in the 1A semis.

Haysi's Tanner O'Quinn went downfield early to Jaylen Sykes for the first down.

Then it's that combo in reverse. Sykes to O'Quinn on the TD, and Haysi was up 8-0.

But Altavista comes back. Juan Thornhill hands to Destin Brown, who scoots in on the touchdown. That put Altavista was on top 14-8.

Thornhill then gets it done in the air going to Demetrious Johnson for the touchdown making it 22 to 8 Colonels.

Then it's Thornhill avoiding the sack and hitting Kanavous Jones for six more. Altavista wins it 34-22 to advance to the finals.
