Williamsburg scores 70 points during 48-point win over outmanned Pineville

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

LOG MOUNTAIN — Even though Williamsburg jumped out to a 28-0 lead, the Yellow Jackets received a momentary scare from Pineville before blowing out the Mountain Lions, 70-22, during Friday’s City/County Bowl at Bell County High School.

Jerry Herron’s squad jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the first quarter before seeing the Mountain Lions rally behind their pass-happy offense to get as close as 14 points (36-22) before seeing the Yellow Jackets dominate second half action while rolling to the 48-point win.

“They got back in the game on us, but we responded and managed to get the win,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron said. “The kids battled tonight. Not only did we have to stop them from rallying, but we had some sick, but managed to overcome some adversity and win.

“I am really happy with the kids,” he added. “I’m really pleased with the way they came back and played in the second half.”

The 70-point output is the most points Williamsburg has scored since putting up 80 points during a win over Cumberland on Oct. 13, 2000.

Herron’s squad’s offensive output during the first three weeks have resembled more of a basketball team’s point total, as the Yellow Jackets are now averaging 58 points a game.

“We were able to score some points tonight,” Herron said. “We did it in a lot of ways. We scored two on interception returns and a kick-off return, too.”

The win also marks the first time the Yellow Jackets have started the season with a perfect 3-0 mark dating back to the 2005 season when former coach Jim Black guided Williamsburg to three straight wins over Jellico, Tenn., McCreary Central and Oneida, Tenn.

“It’s nice to get off to a good start like this,” Herron said. “The kids are really working hard and it is showing on the field. This was a very good win for us.”

Logan Hamblin led Williamsburg with 56 rushing yards and one touchdown on four carries, while quarterback Dalton Sizemore completed 19-of-29 pass attempts for 272 yards and four touchdowns. Corey Shelton led the Yellow Jackets with 117 receiving yards on six receptions and he also had two receiving touchdowns and an interception for a score. Skyler Griffith had seven receptions for 83 yards and two touchdowns. He also had an interception that resulted in a touchdown while also taking a kick-off return for a 75-yard touchdown.
