Gavin Streets racked up 254 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead Valley to a convincing 32-12 victory over the Beallsville Blue Devils on Sept. 21 at Tom West Field in Pine Grove.

Streets had the only score in the first period with a 50-yard touchdown scamper, while teammate Colby Kinkade dented the scoreboard with a four-yard touchdown run. George Brown ran in the two-point conversion early in the second period, which gave the Lumberjacks a comfortable 14-0 lead.

However, the Blue Devils' quarterback Dakota Phillips scored on runs of 30 and 24 yards to close the gap at the break, 14-12.

The Lumberjacks ran out of the break, scoring on a Ethan Fluharty five-yard scamper and a 65-yard Street score in the third period to go up, 26-12, entering the fourth period.

The Lumberjacks' Abe Satterfield got into the scoring column with a nice six-yard quarterback keeper early in the fourth to give the hosts a 32-12 lead and the win.

Streets posted outstanding numbers for the Lumberjills in the win.

He gained 254 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground, while hauling in the only pair of receptions for 39 yards to pace the Valley offense.

Fluharty also had an outstanding game, rushing for 119 yards on 22 carries. It was the Lumberjacks' second time this season when they had a pair of runners gain over 100 yards in a game.

In addition, Satterfield gained 25 yards and scored a touchdown on four carries, while Kinkade tacked on nine yards on four carries, including a touchdown.

Valley held the Beallsville Blue Devils to 105 total yards, while the 'Jacks gained 419 total yards of offense. Valley also moved the chains 15 times, to only nine for the Devils.

Beallsville only committed three penalties for 10 yards, while Valley had five for 40 yards lost.

Defensively, Gavin Streets had a team-high with nine tackles, while Wyatt Dallison and Hunter Wood each made eight stops. George Brown added seven tackles, while Logan Bassett and David Sell each recorded five tackles. Tommy Shannan and Colby Kinkade each made four tackles, and Kinkade had a forced fumble.

The game was brought to a halt with a little over two minutes remaining due to a Beallsville player having to be transported to Ruby Hospital in Morgantown.

It has been reported that the injured player is recovering nicely and doesn't have to have surgery.

The Lumberjacks are starting to get a few players back from injuries and will play Saturday evening in Parkersburg when they visit the undefeated Crusaders.
