Friday’s varsity football game against Braxton County has been moved to Glenville State College’s Morris Stadium. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Calhoun, 4-4 after a 45-38 loss to visiting Wirt County last Friday, dropped two places to 21st in Class A WVSSAC rankings. It was the fourth loss in five games for the Red Devils.

CHS needs the 13 ratings points it would get with a win over the Eagles to keep alive its slim chances of qualifying for the playoffs for the fourth time in five years.

Braxton, which began the season with four wins, has lost its last five games. It is ranked 22nd in Class AA.

Calhoun closes its regular season next week by hosting St. Marys, which will probably enter the contest on a seven-game losing streak and would provide only eight ratings points for a CHS victory.

Last Friday, Aaron Yoak spotted the Red Devils a 6-0 lead on the first play from scrimmage by returning an interception 19 yards.

Wirt answered with a 15-play drive that covered 70 yards, but came up inches short on fourth down at the two.

Fumbles, something that has plagued Calhoun all season, led directly to three of the Tigers’ five touchdowns in the first half. Those turnovers and 168 yards in passing gave Wirt a 33-6 lead.

The visitors expanded that lead to 39-6 on their first series of the second half, helped out by another five completions for 73 yards.

Calhoun scored on four of its next five possessions and added two-point conversions after each, but Wirt’s 13-play, 55-yard scoring drive came after the Red Devils had scored 24 of those unanswered points.

The drive gave the Tigers a 45-30 lead with 5:34 remaining.

CHS answered with its fourth touchdown of the half, a 12-yard run by quarterback Zach Moore and Randy Fluharty’s third two-point conversion with 2:10 left.

An onside kick failed, and Wirt ran out the clock for a 45-38 win.

The previous three TDs in the half for Calhoun were scored on a 17-yard pass from Moore to Preston Milan, Moore’s 40-yard run, and Randy Fluharty’s five-yard score.

Calhoun was led in rushing by Moore (9-67) and Fluharty (11-65). The defense was led in tackles by Darrenger Fluharty (12) and Ben Laughlin (11).

Calhoun will go after its fifth win against Braxton County on Friday, 7:30 p.m., at Glenville State College.
