CHAPMANVILLE Chapmanville’s defense forced four Man turnovers and held the Hillbillies to 71 total yards Friday night as the Tigers defeated the Class A seventh-ranked Hillbillies 32-0 at Barker Stadium.
Eli Pridemore rushed for 92 yards, Jeremy Collins ran for 63 yards and Austin Adkins, Andrew Topping and Robert Cook each ran for a touchdown for Chapmanville, who possessed the ball for more than 32 minutes.
Man struggled to move the ball on offense and had more penalty yards (94) than total yards (71) and just three first downs in the loss.
The Hillbillies had an opportunity to secure a first-round home playoff with a win, however, the loss dropped them out of the top eight.
Man (7-3) will be seeded ninth in next week’s Class A playoffs and will travel to eighth-seeded Cameron.
Adkins, Collins and Topping each had an interception and Kaleb Burford had a fumble recovery for the Tigers, who finished the season with a 5-5 record.
Cook, who missed the last two games with a shoulder injury suffered in the fourth quarter of Chapmanville’s 18-7 loss to Wayne on Oct. 13, got the Tigers on the board in the first quarter with a 6-yard touchdown with 5:45 to play in the opening quarter.
Sebastian Carrillo added a 34-yard field goal to give Chapmanville a 10-0 lead with 2:24 to play in the first.
The Tigers took a 17-0 lead on Adkins’ 1-yard run with 1:02 to play before halftime.
In the third quarter, Man’s Dusten Baisden was gang tackled in the endzone for a Chapmanville safety to give the Tigers a 19-0 lead with 8:59 to play in the third.
Chapmanville tacked on a pair of fourth quarter scores to put the game on ice and seal its second consecutive Logan County Championship.
Topping scored on a 5-yard run with 6:52 to play and Nate Easterling hooked up with Adkins for a 12-yard touchdown pass with 3:52 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Adkins rushed for 51 yards on eight carries and caught three passes for 10 yards.
Cook completed 6 of 9 passes for 26 yards and Easterling completed his only pass for 12 yards in the Tigers win.
