ST. ALBANS, WV (WOWK) – Tonight West Virginia high school football officially kicked off; and St. Albans hosted George Washington, ending in quite a blow out.

The Red Dragons finished 2-4 last season, and were facing an experienced GW squad tonight.

In the first quarter, Kyle Matthews took a hand off and had a nice spin move to help him score this 22-yard touchdown; the first points of the game.

That next GW drive, quarterback Abe Fenwick dropped back, and unloaded to a wide open Taran Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick jogged it in for the 49 yard touchdown to make it 14-0.

Patriots driving again, second quarter now, and running back Clay Matthews spots a hole and guns it. He was then dragged down by S.A.’s Michael Hindman just short of the goal line.

21-0, GW.

It rolled on like that in the second half, the Patriots walking away with the shutout win the final 49-0.
