Best Game of the Week?
While the Pulaski County and Patrick Henry game was pretty good, the better game between River Ridge and Western Valley district foes was in Salem, where the Spartans beat Franklin County 31-24 in overtime. Salem never trailed in the game as first quarter touchdowns by Devante Payne and Chad Fisher gave them a 14-7 lead and Arius McConnell's third quarter touchdown restored their lead to 21-14. Franklin County came up with a game-tying field goal as time expired in regulation to force the extra frame, where Salem's Matt Hill found Coleman Fox on first down and the Spartans defense put Franklin County in a fourth down and eight on their possession, which the Eagles could not convert. Salem came in with high hopes this season with speed on offense and strong players returning on the line and through two games, the Spartans have impressed. They now sit at #4 in VirginiaPreps.com Division 4 top ten.
