APPOMATTOX, Va. (WDBJ7) -- It's been a tough year for the Giles Spartans who lost 9 players to season ending injuries on the way to a 5 and 5 record.
Friday, Coach Jeff Williams and company faced Appomattox in the playoffs for the third straight season.
Appomattox had its run game going Friday.
Cristian Ferguson hits the hole and gets the 1st down early in the 1st. 2 plays later its Ferguson again taking the pitch to the left runs 30 yards for the TD its 7-0 early.
Giles tries to answer with its own ground games as Hunter Williams run up the middle for the first down. Later on in the same drive its Williams again with a big 3rd down run, keeping things moving for Giles.
But on 4th and short Giles gets stuffed at the line by the whole Appomattox Defense and loses the ball on downs.
Appomattox would score again near the end of the first quarter, with the quick inside handoff to Collen Shaw, that made it 14-0 Appomattox.
