Second round of high school football playoffs


CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – The first round of the West Virginia high school football playoffs are over, and the road to Wheeling has been cut short for some of our area teams.

The Knights move on to the second round, and face University Friday night.

Jefferson took down Hurricane, that final 31-18; the Cougars will now face Bridgeport Friday.

In Class AA, there was a game that shocked most of us in the southern part of the state.

Herbert Hoover ended the regular season outscoring opponents 490-42, and was a heavy favorite to win the Class AA state title.

The Polar Bears advance to the second round and will face Robert C. Byrd Friday night.
