Who’s The Tiger King Now?

Blue Devils Takendown the Tigers


In a game that featured two of the top defenses in the Little Kanawha Conference, St. Marys was a little stingier and a lot more opportunistic.
The Blue Devils limited Wirt County to less than 150 total yards and forced three turnovers as they celebrated homecoming with a 26-7 victory over the Tigers at Bill Hamlin Stadium Friday night.
The victory over 13th-ranked Wirt County was an important one for No. 4 St. Marys. With the four remaining games in the regular season against teams with a losing record, Friday night’s contest represented the Blue Devils’ best Chance to secure big points in the post-season ratings.
St. Marys successfully bounced back from a 20-6 road loss to Williamstown last week and improved to 5-1 on the season. Wirt County, which was coming off a loss to top-ranked Doddridge County, saw its mark dip to 3-2.
In addition to the workmanlike win on the gridiron, Friday’s other highlight was also on the field. That came at halftime, when Bralynn Davis was crowned as the 67th Belle of St. Marys.
