WeBo weathers elements to top Danville 27-24

Despite 329 yards rushing for the tandem of Ben Jones and Autry Pickens, Danville fell to visiting Western Boone 27-24 Friday night. "The effort was tremendous," Danville coach Russ Sumner said. "We really worked hard all week on making sure that we were playing assignment football. Against a team that is really disciplined and executes really well, especially one that runs the option, you have to be really assignment oriented. We didn't do a good job of that at times on the defensive side of the ball and offensively, we made some glaring errors on blocking assignments and things like that." Danville (1-4) broke through into scoring position first, as a 38-yard run by Jones and a facemask penalty gave the Warriors the ball at the 32 yard line. However, the drive was ended when they turned the ball over on downs. Western Boone's next drive also featured a long run by their quarterback, Logan Wethington, who's 52-yard scamper gave the Stars (4-1) possession at the 18 yard line. Unlike the Warriors, Western Boone took advantage and Riggs Baxter scored on a 3-yard touchdown plunge. The Warriors were able to take advantage of their next opportunity, however. A fumble gave Danville the ball deep in Star territory. Three plays later, Pickens scored from 4 yards out. The Warriors also capitalized on the two point conversion, a run by Pickens.
