Magna Vista and George Washington have been the class of the Piedmont so far this season. This week the Warriors and Eagles met for the first time since 2006 in Danville.
It was homecoming night at George Washington, congrats to Tomas Keen and Addi Leigh Milam who are this year's king and queen.
GW started strong in this one making a play on special teams.Koby Johnson punted the ball for Magna Vista but it was blocked and the Eagles take over.
Later in the first, GW's Omar Grimes got the handoff and broke tackles, nearly falling down but made it through to the endzone. GW was up by two touchdowns.
Then in the second the Eagles were at it again, Hunter Byrnes handed off to Dwight Harris who made it into the endzone. George Washington had a three score lead.
But Magna Vista's Shoalin McGuire got his team on the comeback trail, tying to find an open receiver but tucked it under and took it in for six and the Warriors had life.
Byrnes then made a mistake for GW. He was going deep but Magna Vista's JaiQuan Hairston made a play and fives Magna Vista the ball back.
McGuire took advantage doing his thing from the ten yard line. He tore through the defense for the score.
Magna Vista took control with less than two minutes on the clock and won and got the dramatic 29 to 28 win on the road.
Joe Favero/Magna Vista Head Coach: "You know I think we played a little sloppy in the first half, had a turnover for a touchdown and got behind, but you know I'm proud of this group for just battling."
Nick Anderson/George Washington Head Coach: "They played hard, I mean They were focused they stuck to their game plan and they stuck to what they were doing in the first half we just didn't make the plays in the second half."
