#5 Chapmanville matches up with #5 Wayne

               It’s the game everyone’s anticipating. The game not only has playoff implications written all over it but also could determine who wins the Cardinal Conference championship. Chapmanville is ranked No. 5 in the state in Class AA at 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the cardinal conference. No. 6 Wayne is 7-1 overall and has a one-half game lead on Chapmanville in the league standings at 5-1. The tigers led by Jake Robinson who is a candidate for the Kennedy Award are hoping to make a statement by beating the powerhouse for the first time since 1991. Wayne has won the past 6 meetings including last year’s 42-17 win over the Tiger’s.

Wayne always shows up with a power house each year. They won a state championship in 2006 downing Tolsia 33-6 in the Class AA finals at Wheeling. They also made it to the super six last year, but had got beaten by Bluefield. They were also 2A runner-ups in 2004 and 2000.

Chapmanville also has a power house this year relying a lot on senior Jake Robinson, who has an outstanding 137 carries for 1,834 yards along with 31 touchdowns on the season. He rushed 14 times for 267 yards and four scores over last week’s win over Tolsia. This year, the pioneers might be facing a loss as the Chapmanville’s Tigers step up and lay it all out on the field. It should be one of the best matchups of the year. I wish our boys the best of luck!
