    After opening the season with a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Monterey, the Harriman Blue Devils have now dropped two straight games following Friday's 43-12 setback against Upperman.

    The passing of York QB Connor York was the main concern of Harriman heading into Friday's contest with the Bees, and York showed why as he completed 8 of 9 passes on the night for 121 yards and 3 TDs.

    By JON LEFFEW

    Midway hosted Pickett County Friday night in what appeared to be a great chance for the Green Wave to end their 13-game losing streak.

    Both teams did not win at all last year, but a strong showing in last week’s contest led many Midway fans to feel confident heading into the contest.

    This confidence was obviously deserved, as the Green Wave absolutely destroyed Pickett County by a final score of 52-6.
