Martinsburg 50, Musselman 7

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Martinsburg returned a Musselman onside kick attempt for a touchdown on the opening kickoff, setting the tone as the Bulldogs cruised to victory in the West Virginia Class AAA quarterfinals at Cobourn Field.

The Bulldogs (11-1), seeded second in Class AAA, led 22-0 less than five minutes into the rematch of a regular-season game played less than a month ago.

Martinsburg won that game 73-0.

The Bulldogs, the two-time defending state champions, will host a semifinal game next weekend.

WINCHESTER, Va. — Moni Anderson set the tone with 14 steals to lead Broadfording Christian Academy to a season-opening victory over Mountain View Christian.

Anderson collected six steals in the Mountain View’s first eight possessions to start the Lions to an early 15-0 lead and were never headed.

Mawdo Sallah led Broadfording with 19 points and nine rebounds, while Cisco Silva added nine points with 12 rebounds and five assists. Anderson scored 18 points and Ben Cradduck added 12.
