On a night when Kaley Field was more suited for a Halloween video than Homecoming, Greencastle-Antrim running back Hunter Szaflarski was The Thriller. With a fog rolling across the field, looking like something out of a cemetery scene, Szaflarski darted for four touchdowns - including one on a punt return - to allow the Blue Devils to scare off Big Spring 44-27 on Friday in a Mid-Penn Colonial matchup. Szaflarski finished with 102 yards rushing - the lowest of three Greencastle 100-yard performances - but notched scores of 28, 42 and 10 yards to go with a 67-yard punt return.

One time is an event. Twice is a habit. Three times might create a tradition. Martinsburg started Phase Two of what many hope will become as much a part of December as Christmas. It was the second straight year the Bulldogs faithful turned out to celebrate a West Virginia Class AAA state football championship. The Bulldogs were greeted by a crowd of 500 along with school, city and state officials who turned out Thursday in the school's gym to publicly congratulate the team that defended their championship in a 35-27 win over George Washington last Saturday in Wheeling.

Somewhere, Paul Bryant smiled on Saturday. With a tip of his trademark houndstooth hat and a gravely sounding “good job,” Bear Bryant - the late Alabama coaching icon - probably looked down with a measure of admiration at the Martinsburg football team. Bryant probably didn't know Martinsburg from Spartanburg or Martinsville, but he did know quality football when he saw it. He lived it, as his 323 career collegiate victories prove. When it comes to Martinsburg, though, Bryant probably would have noticed the Bulldogs' 35-27 victory over George Washington on Saturday for their second straight West Virginia Class AAA championship.

Great expectations are nothing unless you expect greatness. The Martinsburg football team will settle for nothing else than everything. The Bulldogs entered the 2011 season with Wheeling or bust on their back bumpers. Next Saturday, they will be there. Martinsburg, the defending West Virginia Class AAA champion, took care of business by overpowering Morgantown in the second half. Quarterback Brandon Ashenfelter ran for 119 yards and threw for another 196 and a touchdown in a 38-14 state semifinal victory over the Mohicans on Saturday at Coubourn Field.

At a glance, Martinsburg's 46-7 win over Huntington in the West Virginia Class AAA football quarterfinals on Saturday at Cobourn Field looks like just another easy victory. But the Bulldogs showed that they haven't won 26 straight games without putting in some hard work and a little extra effort. “This is a hard-working group of kids,” said Martinsburg coach David Walker. “I think we played pretty well up front today, and when the (ball carriers) needed to work through something, they made some great plays for us.” The Bulldogs (12-0)

If the Woodrow Wilson football team stops to eat on the way back to Beckley, W.Va., Perkins will probably be last on its list of choices. That's because the Flying Eagles saw too much of one on Friday in Martinsburg. Martinsburg tailback Chris Perkins gave Woodrow Wilson a steady diet of offense as he rushed for 136 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the top-ranked and undefeted Bulldogs to a 49-13 victory in the opening round of the West Virginia Class AAA state playoffs at Cobourn Field.
