MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- After playing close games the first three weeks of the season, No. 2 Martinsburg has reversed a trend.
Two straight blowout wins in which JV players have seen significant playing time have lifted the Bulldogs over the .500 mark, but is it a good thing that their starters are only playing one half?
"It depends on how hard you work during the week," Martinsburg coach David Walker said after the Bulldogs' 63-0 rout of Anacostia on Friday night. "We were in a situation a couple years ago where we scored 60 a couple times and it can become an issue if you allow it to. We just have to work hard in practice, make these guys compete."
It didn't take long Friday to see that Anacostia would have trouble competing with Martinsburg. The Bulldogs needed just five plays to cover 62 yards after the opening kickoff, with quarterback Kameron Puller capping the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run just 1 minute, 39 seconds into the game.
