WINFIELD Caden Beam and Brayton Boggs each ran for over 100 yards and combined for five touchdowns, and the Winfield Generals (2-1) contained the Chapmanville ground game en route to a 47-14 victory over the Tigers Friday night at Generals Stadium.
The Tigers (2-1) had no answer for the Winfield ground game as the Generals gained 394 yards, rushed for six touchdowns and averaged 12.3 yards per rush in helping the Generals build a 35-7 halftime lead.
Beam ran for 182 yards on 13 carries and scored on runs of 44, 2 and 19 while Boggs carried the ball seven times for 111 yards and touchdown runs of 16 and 68 yards. K-juan Patterson, who started the Winfield scoring with a 44-yard touchdown on the game’s third play, ran for 66 yards on four carries.
Following a Chapmanville punt, Winfield needed just two plays to increase its lead to 15-0 as Beam crossed the goal line from 44-yards out with 7:43 to play in the opening quarter.
Chapmanville closed to 15-7 when Brody Dalton found Adam Mullins for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 1:23 to play in the quarter.
It would be as close as Chapmanville would get as Winfield scored 26 consecutive points before the Tigers answered with a fourth quarter touchdown.
Winfield scored on its first five possessions, helped by Beam’s three first half touchdowns.
Beam’s 2-yard touchdown put Winfield on top 22-7 with 11:26 to play in the first half and his third touchdown, a 19-yard scamper gave the Generals a 29-7 lead with 6:38 to play.
Aiden Hernandez hauled in a 15-yard touchdown pass from Brycen Brown with 2:27 before halftime to give Winfield a 35-7 lead.
Following a Chapmanville three-and-out to start the second half, Winfield erased any thoughts of a Tigers comeback by driving 70 yards in five plays for Boggs’ first touchdown, a 16-yard run with 8:14 to play to give the Generals a 41-7 lead.
Dalton ran in from 1-yard out with 11:20 remaining in the fourth to cut the deficit to 41-14, but the Generals answered with a 68-yard from Boggs just 0:12 later for a 47-14 lead with 11:08 to play.
Brown completed 7 of 15 passes for 107 yards and one touchdown for Winfield. Boggs hauled in three passes for 49 yards and Tanner Laughery had three catches for 43 yards.
Kohl Farmer, Chapmanville’s leading rusher with 310 yards entering Friday’s contest, was held to 48 yards on 19 carries. Dalton carried the ball 13 times for 30 yards and Austin Adkins ran for 12 yards on three carries.
Dalton completed 16 of 26 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. Mullins hauled in seven receptions for 77 yards and one score while Adkins caught six passes for 71 yards for Chapmanville.
Both the Tigers and Generals are expected to be in the top 16 when the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission releases its initial Class AA playoff ratings Tuesday afternoon.
Both teams will be in action Friday night as Winfield travels to Wayne while Chapmanville will host Nitro for homecoming.
