LYNCHBURG , Va. (WDBJ7) On Friday night, 10 seed Blacksburg was looking for another upset on the road at Brookville.
Blacksburg went up 35-21 at the half. But the Bees were swarming to start the 3rd quarter. Tanner Bernard dropped it into Ke'Eric Davis and Davis died the rest. The 73-yard touchdown made it 35-28.
Brookville went for the onside kick, but that didn't surprise the Bruins. In fact, Andrew Babcock picked it up and ran it all the way back for a touchdown of his own, extending the lead back to 14.
The Bees tried to get back into it by going for it on 4th down. Gideon Driscoll got in there for the sack, and it's a turnover on downs.
Blacksburg would take full advantage. Grant Johnston dropped back, looking deep, and connected with Tiquest Terry for the 35-yard strike. Blacksburg died it again. The 10 seed beat Brookville 63-35.
Heritage will host Blacksburg next week in the 3A West regional final.
