Wayne County 13, West Jones 10 (10/31/2014)

November 1, 2014

A rivalry series that caught fire in 2007 and has usually meant a district title for whichever team comes out on top. Waynesboro is a town of less than 6,000 and literally shuts down on game night. The town even moved celebrating Halloween to Thursday night since they wanted to make sure they had enough police for that night and the following night at the game vs. West Jones.

This season’s game was a hard-hitting affair from the opening kickoff. Defense ruled the night, which was fine with Wayne County head coach Todd Mangum, a former defensive coordinator. Containing West Jones quarterback was Job 1 for Wayne County and by in large they did just that. Wayne County clung to a 13-10 lead late when Neil McLauren finally let loose on a long completion down the middle of the field that set up a last-second field goal attempt to try to tie the game. Unfortunately for the visitors the kick got caught up in the wind and fell five yards short giving Wayne County a critical win.
