LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Heritage and Jefferson Forest both rolled up huge offensive numbers last week. Tonight the Pioneers and Cavaliers hooked up looking for some defense.
Pioneers raced to a 21-nothing lead but had to hang on. Kenan Cupit gets the call here and he busts one for good yardage. The Cavs were in Pioneer territory.
Jacob Hackworth takes over from there. He scores on the hard earned run to make it 21-7 Heritage.
JF kept plugging. They give it to Hackworth again and again he finds the zone as they crept a little closer at 21-14.
Then it's back to Cupit a few minutes later. He's in for another 6 and just like that it's 21-20 with just over four minutes left.
But Heritage hangs tough. The direct snap to KJ Vaughan and he plows ahead for first down yardage.
From inside the five, Kristian Rivera scoots in. That iced things as Heritage survived 28 to 20 the final over Jefferson Forest.
