James Monroe struggles to contain Williamstown, falls in State Title game
Mavericks lose 52-20
WHEELING, W.Va. (WVVA) -The Williamstown Yellow Jackets stung early and often.
James Monroe fumbled on its play of the game and immediately gave Williamstown a scoring opportunity.
The Mavericks would instantly bounce back. Chaz Boggs would take a pitch from Layton Dowdy and score from 25 yards out. Dowdy found Eli Allen in the endzone for the two-point conversion to tie the game at 8.
The Yellow Jackets outscored the Mavericks, 22-6 the rest of the half. Maxwell Molessa gashed the Mavericks defense for a pair of long touchdown runs.
Williamstown expanded the lead in the second half and went on to win the game 52-20.
It was certainly a season to remember for James Monroe. The Mavericks earned the #1 seed in the Class-A playoffs and won their first three postseason games in convincing fashion.
This was the program’s first trip to Wheeling since 2007.
