More ups than downs.

Both Point Pleasant and Hannan came away with big victories, while Wahama dropped a heartbreaker as Mason County went 2-1 Friday night during Week 6 contests throughout the Mountain State.

The Big Blacks (5-1) led 35-0 at the half and rolled to their 24th consecutive road victory following a 49-3 thumping of Parkersburg South. PPHS has now won four straight decisions over the Patriots.

The Wildcats (2-3) also stormed out to a 35-0 halftime advantage and cruised to a 41-8 home victory over Jenkins (KY). HHS has now won two straight games, a first for the program since October of 1997.

The White Falcons (1-5) put quite a scare in visiting Trimble as WHS led 14-0 after one quarter and took a 20-13 edge into halftime, but the Tomcats reeled off 19 unanswered points in the second half to claim a 32-20 decision.

The White Falcons have now lost four consecutive decisions to Trimble since winning the 2012 Class A state title.

Point Pleasant travels to Bluefield next Friday for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Wahama will travel to Eastern in a Week 7 TVC Hocking contest Friday at 7:30 p.m. Hannan travels to Beallsville next Friday for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

Due to an early deadline, the Mason County gridiron games from Week 6 will be available in full detail in the Tuesday sports edition of the Point Pleasant Register. Game stories will be available online at mydailyregister.com before appearing in print.
