High School Football Roundup: GW beats Bassett, takes sole possession of No. 1 in PD standings | High school


By Taylor Sowers Bulletin Special

Friday night, GW-Danville and Bassett were at No. 1 and 2 in the Piedmont district standings. Both on great winning streaks, with each team having a ratio of around 3: 1 in the points for and points against categories.

Friday’s game held firm, with the Eagles winning 21-7 at Danville.

In the first quarter, Bassett was walking the field when quarterback Ja’Ricous Hairston searched for his wide receiver in the end zone and was intercepted by GW’s Jakobe Dixon for a touchback.

GW would win a first down before two back-to-back stops from the Bassett defense force a punt on 4th and 20, and Bassett would take the ball off his own 28-yard line.

Each team would trade scoreless discs to complete the first quarter.

Towards the end of the second quarter, the game was still scoreless. At the end of the second, GW capped a 64-yard drive with a 9-yard touchdown from Donovan Howard. That would give the Eagles a 7-0 lead before halftime.

To start the third quarter, the Eagles started off their own 27-yard line. Two games later, Eagles QB Jeb Byrnes would find Donovan Howard for a 29-yard touchdown pass to give the Eagles a 14-0 lead.

Bassett opened his own 25 on the next drive, and Simeon Walker-Muse would start with an 11-yard rush.
