South Harrison dropped the Yellow Jackets in Lost Creek with a 48-3 victory last Friday, however Moorefield was still kicking through the adversity.
“It is pick your poison. We are so young that we’re dumb. We can tell guys to run in there and hit ‘em. It is like Huggs says up there in Morgantown, respect all and fear none. They gave it their best and fight all the way to the end. That’s all I can ask of a young group,” Moorefield Football Coach Josh See remarked.
“If you’re going to put lumps on Moorefield, you better do it now. It’s a project and it’s growing. We get better every single week. We have six seniors and four of them play, three juniors and one of them plays with the rest being made up of sophomores and freshmen. We only have five upperclassmen. It’s a work in progress and single A football is like that. You are going to have your up years and your down years. The well’s full or the well’s dry. Right now the well is a little bit dry, but it is starting to trickle in and it will get a lot better.”
The lone scoring highlight for Moorefield was freshman kicker Atikilt Tamiru nailing a 51-yard field goal in the first quarter which is the longest kick in the state so far this season.
That kick had the distance to go 60 yards and the Yellow Jackets players were buzzing with excitement including a little dance celebration by Tamiru and some teammates raising their arms to signify the field goal was good.
