AMHERST, Va. (WDBJ7)-- The Hertiage Pioneers were out to avoid the upset being tonight at 1 and 7 Amherst. Heritage had won 5 of the previous 7 meetings between the two.
Heritage at Amherst
The rain was putting it down tonight at Lancer Stadium.
Amherst struck first as Frank Ross squirts through the line and sniffs the endzone to make it a 7-nothing ballgame.
But the Pioneers' KJ Vaughan followed that up with back to back touchdown runs, including this one from short yardage to put Heritage on top.
Then it's Jabari Blake, calling his own number and he's in for the touchdown and it was 20 to 7 Pioneers.
But the Lancers weren't done yet. With less than a minute on the clock in the first half, the funny business from Amherst on the reverse. It's Blane Johnson to Ross, and then it's tossed back to Samari Brogdon with And Brogdon picks up a couple of blocks and sheds tackles on his way to the endzone.
Heritage though, a little too much in this one as the Pioneers knock out Amherst 54 to 28.
