CHAPMANVILLE, W.Va. — Mother Nature was the winner on Thursday night at Chapmanville’s Tiger Stadium as a big thunderstorm suspended the football game between Chapmanville and Logan middle school.
With Logan leading 12-6 with 1:20 to go in the third quarter the game was halted due to lightning.
The game was not finished but according to WVSSAC rules it’s official and will go in the books as a win by LMS, Timberwolves’ assistant coach Jimmy Shepherd said.
“We called the wvssac today. They told us if it’s after halftime it counts as a full game,” he said on Friday.
Logan led 12-0 in the first quarter and 12-6 at the half.
The Timberwolves’ Corey Townsend was 5 for 11 passing for 134 yards and a touchdown to Korbin Bostic.
Chance Maynard caught two passes for Logan. Norman Kennedy and Cameron Hensley each caught one pass. Rob Tolliver also scored on a 7-yard TD run. He also had a 71-yard touchdown run called back in the third quarter.
Tolliver led Logan in tackles with seven. Naman Childers had five and Justin Collins four.
Josh Atwood scored the lone touchdown for the Tigers.
Logan is scheduled to play at Man this Thursday night. CMS plays at Harts this Thursday.
