BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. — For the second time this season, Spring Valley has ended the state’s longest win streak and knocked off a defending state champion. The Timberwolves did so with a 35-10 win over Bridgeport at Wayne Jamison Field.
“That was the best we have played on offense all year,” said Spring Valley head coach Brad Dingess. “We came out and controlled the line of scrimmage. I thought our backs ran hard. That was a great, full game of football.”
The Timberwolves jumped out to a 14-0 halftime lead with a pair of second quarter scores. Brody Brumfield capped an 18-play drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. Jack Roy later connected with Jace Caldwell on a 57-yard touchdown reception. Roy completed 4-of-5 passes for 105 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
“Our play action really worked tonight. He doesn’t have to go out and win the football game. He did what he had to do in big moments and he hit some big passes.”
Cole Diamond made the score 21-0 early in the third with a 2-yard scoring tote. He led the Spring Valley rushing attack with 162 yards.
“He always falls forward. He gets a good pad level and pushes the pile. He plays like a 220-pound back. For a 185, 190-pound kid, he plays a lot bigger than he is.”
The Wolves added a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to put the game out of reach. Roy hit Corbin Page on a 16-yard touchdown pass to make the score 28-3. After a Cam Cole to Landyn Report 53-yard scoring strike for the Indians, Caldwell capped the scoring with a 16-yard tote.
The Timberwolves (4-1) held Bridgeport (4-1) to their lowest point total since a 14-10 loss to Fairmont Senior in 2017.
“I thought our defensive coordinator Frank Arthur did an unbelievable job scheming those guys up. We were able to control it up front. I thought we tackled well in space.”
The Timberwolves ended Martinsburg’s 57-game win streak in September and halted the new longest win streak for the Indians at 14 games.
“I think you could tell a big difference in our team since we played three weeks in a row. Hopefully we can get another one in before the playoffs start.”
