In high school football games last week:
Oak Hill 47, PikeView 7
The Oak Hill Red Devils continued turning their season around on Friday night, clamping down early on PikeView and spoiling the Panthers’ homecoming with a 47-7 road victory.
Oak Hill (2-4) had control of the ball for just 2:06 in the first quarter but led 27-0 at the end of the period, thanks to heads-up play by its defense, offense and special teams.
Hunter Perdue ran an interception back 58 yards for a score, and Leonard Farrow picked off two more PikeView passes to set up a pair of first-quarter touchdowns by Logan Frantz and Toby Giles.
Te-amo Shelton, who ran for a game-high 127 yards, scored twice in the second quarter on runs of 10 and 70 yards.
Frantz scored twice on the ground and Giles twice on aerials from Cade Maynor, the latter whom was 9-of-12 for 117 yards. Farrow caught four passes for 77 yards.
With a fumble recovery, Khalil Gray contributed to Oak Hill’s four takeaways.
Ethan Vargo-Thomas supplied five PAT kicks.
PikeView will play Bluefield at Mitchell Stadium Friday, while Oak Hill will be in Fairlea to take on Greenbrier East.

Griffin Boggs contributed 80 yards and a pair of TD runs on 20 tries as Trail amassed 400 yards on the ground.
Chris Vines passed 32 yards to Aaron Sisler for another touchdown, one which allowed the Patriots to assume a 35-30 lead with 10:52 left in the game.
Talon Shockey converted six successful PAT kicks on the night for the Patriots.
On the defensive side of the ball, Ruffner, Sisler and Aden Isaacs contributed seven solo tackles apiece, with Sisler tacking on four assists. Isaacs and Tyler Brasse each registered an interception, and Ruffner and Zach Moores both recovered fumbles.
