Cave Spring struck early and often as the Knights overpowered the Golden Wave of Grundy 50-14 last Friday night at Dwight Bogle Stadium. With the win, the Knights advance to the Region IV Division 3 championship game Friday night (7:30) at powerful Richlands.
Cave Spring scored 22 first quarter points and led 43-0 heading to the locker room at the half. The lead mushroomed to 50-0 early in the third quarter before Cave Spring Head Coach Tim Fulton went to the bench and was content to let the clock run continuously. Grundy standout Tyler Berglowe scored the last two touchdowns of the game to secure the final score. Grundy showed a lot of fight despite the uphill battle as they attempted three onsides kicks in the final half. The Golden Wave finished the season 9-3.
Cave Spring QB Josh Woodrum was lethal through the air, completing 10 of 14 passes for 262 yards. Woodrum connected with four receivers for touchdowns including Reece Kemp (4 yards), Adam Anderson (96 yards), Michael Cole (61 yards) and John Evans (28 yards). Woodrum rushed for two TDs from 38 and 4 yards out, while Anderson completed the Knight scoring with a 24-yard scamper. Sam Wright led Cave Spring on the ground with 63 yards on 9 carries. The Knights improved to 8-3.
“We executed very well tonight,” Fulton noted after the game. “Our defense was great in the opening half. Now we go to work to prepare for a very good Richlands team.”
Cave Spring will face an undefeated (11-0) Blue Tornado team that demolished Martinsville Friday night 63-19.
