WYTHEVILLE, Va. -

In Wythe County, the George Wythe Maroons were the latest team to try to slow down Galax running back Stephen Peoples who rushed for a whopping 2,410 yards this season to go with 35 touchdowns.

George Wythe was trying to dig out of a halftime hole.

The Maroons fumbled the second half kickoff putting the Maroon Tide in great shape at the 20 yard line.

Steven Peoples cashed in on the short touchdown.  Galax was on cruise control up 35 to 7 early in the third.

Trey Skeens did his part to try to get George Wythe back into it.  He was off on a 20 yard gain to move the chains.

From the 21 yard line, it was Elijah Onks with the big run to draw the Maroons closer.  They missed the PAT leaving things at 35-13.

Maroons quarterback Darius Moore then found Skeens in the middle of the field.  Skeens took it to the house on the touchdown, but George Wythe still trailed 38 to 20.

Joseph Dixon iced things for Galax.  The 66 yard touchdown was the capper.

Galax is playing next week thanks to a 51 to 20 win over George Wythe.
