POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Presale tickets for the Class AAA quarterfinal football contest between Point Pleasant and Huntington will be on sale at the school during school hours on Thursday and Friday.

The cost is $7 apiece for adults and $5 each for students. All tickets at gate will be $7 and there is no reserve seating. If you leave the game before it ends, you must pay to re-enter.

No county passes will be accepted at the game. Only WVSSAC courtesy passes will be accepted.


In the Point Pleasant versus Musselman opening round Class AAA playoff game from this past weekend, it was noted in the story that PPHS senior Cody Mitchell became the state’s all-time leader in rushing touchdowns in a playoff game. Mitchell is, in fact, the state’s all-time leader in rushing touchdowns in a Class AAA playoff game with seven. The overall playoff record is eight touchdowns (and 399 rushing yards) by Jordan Roberts of Scott in a 2007 Class AA win over Berkeley Springs. The original story never stated that it was a state record for all divisions, only Class AAA.
