Chapmanville forced Man to punt on its opening possession, taking over at its own 19 and drove all the way to the Hillbilly 19 before turning the ball over on downs traveling 66 yards in a 17-play drive that chewed up 9:45 of the first quarter clock.
Man fumbled on the opening play of the second quarter and Charles Stallard recovered the loose pigskin at the Hillbilly 22.
Four plays later, Farmer ran in from 7-yards out with 10:31 remaining in the first half to give Chapmanville a 7-0 following Jonathan Ferrell's extra point kick.
On the ensuing kickoff, Chris Isaacs electrified the home crowd with what appeared to be an 83-yard kick return, however, the touchdown was called back after a holding penalty at the Man 34.
Man would march to the Chapmanville 18, however, the drive stalled as the Hillbillies turned the ball over on downs to the Tigers.
