RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Radford and Appomattox met Friday for the first time since 1981.
The Raiders were 55 and 2 over the last four years and in the hunt for a fourth straight state crown.
A Radford team that had given up 7 points or less in 8 of its last 10 games stood in the way.
Norm Lineburg Field the stage for the Region 2C Final. Bobcats down 17-7 in the second quarter.
But they rally late in the half. Zane Rupe slips it to Justice Marshall. He emerges from the pack and see you later. A 40 yard touchdown run and it's 17-14.
The Cats recover a fumble with just 17 seconds in the half to setup the trick play. Time for the trick play. Rupe takes the snap, hands it off to PJ Prioleau.
This kid's looking downfield and he's got Marshall in the endzone. Three touchdowns for Marshall today and it's 21-17 Bobcats.
In the fourth, Prioleau out running the camera. He's on a mission. Nobody can touch him. That touchdown closing the door on the Raiders' chances.
Coach Saunders knows it!
The Bobcats will play on! Following last year's 2-8 season, they hold off Appomattox 28-25, to claim the region title over the three time defending state champs.
