William Byrd at Bassett
It was at Ed Bassett Stadium in Henry County where the William Byrd Terriers made a house call Friday.
Basset held the lead from the beginning, jumping out ahead 21-nothing in the first half, but Byrd Quaterback Dylan Hatfield was still working hard. He gets the Terriers on the board with this TD run.
A few drives later, it was Hatfield again, punching through to the endzone to make it 21-12 as Byrd hung around in this thing.
Bassett's defense hit back as number 54 Dominic Gill punches the ball loose, and defensive lineman Austin McDaniel scoops it up. But the Bengals couldn't turn it into points.
Hatfield goes back to work as he lobs a pass to Trevor Thompson, who then loses the ball to the Bengal's Jesus Sanchez.
With a little over three minutes left in the fourth quarter, and backed up against his own endzone, Hatfield again dropped back for a pass, only to be brought down behind the goal line by Defensive Lineman Ty Cline for a safety.
Bassett's Keshaun Valentine sealed things for good with a late interception as the Bengals hung on to win it 23 to 12.
