FFE Spotlight Game of the Week: James River at Glenvar

By  | 

SALEM, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Highlander heaven on a Friday night, two rivals battling it out for a spray painted rocking chair, what could be better you ask? And to that I say nothing.

First drive of the game, Landry don't call my baby Gerbers completes this pass to Nick Sebolt for a first down, men in kilts driving.
Finishing off the drive here this is Bradey Loder, and he's a load to take down inside the five, Knights can't do it and Glenvar jumps out to an early 7-0 lead.

This is called doing bad all by yourself. Kevin Timer takes down Loder in the backfield for a loss. Forces a third down and long.. so what do you do, go from making plays in the backfield to making them in the secondary, Timer with the pick and JR takes over still down seven in the first.

They couldn't get anything going however so score stays the same as we head to the half.

Coming out Glenvar trying to put it away, terrible field conditions tonight you can tell by the dirty jerseys, Coby Street from one yard out punches it in and the Highlanders on top 13-0.

After a safety it's 13-2 and coach Phillips' team needs a big play in the worst way. Coulter Hodges rolling right and let it rip big fella.. ball comes down with not a white jersey in sight and into the arms of Justice Forster for the pick.

That would seal the game. Here's both coaches after the game.

"You know it was tough, it was tough field conditions. Hard to get our footing. I felt like we were behind the sticks all night long. They played the field position game."

"In field conditions like this you've got to be good up front and I thought our lineman played really well they played tough they played physical you know they were packing the box and I really thought our kids got off the ball and our running backs played hard too."

13-2 your final score here at Glenvar highlanders on top. The knights fall to 4-1 on the season while the highlanders stay undefeated not great field conditions here very sloppy game but all in all a great game in our spotlight game of the week.
