SHENANDOAH, Nov. 3 — The Luray Bulldogs scored on all eight possessions in Friday night’s rivalry, while the Page County Panthers threw three interceptions and only picked up five first downs. Luray lead 40-0 at halftime and went on to win the season finale 54-0.

While six different Bulldogs found the end zone, Luray was lead once again by sophomore running back Cason Bryant, who racked up 142 yards on nine carries and scored twice. Bryant recorded his two touchdowns on breakaway runs of 35 and 49 yards.

Although he only got four touches during the game, LHS senior Ryder Liscomb rushed for a 7-yard touchdown and caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Ayden Haddock, both in the second quarter. Haddock accounted for three touchdowns, rushing for one and throwing for two. The freshmen completed 3-of-5 through the air for 86 yards, with TD strikes to Liscomb and junior Braden Ancell.

Luray senior Ayden Starkey had 11 carries for 98 yards and a touchdown. The Bulldogs’ final score in the fourth quarter was posted by sophomore Tanner Ellis.

Page County (1-9) relied heavily on the passing game — attempting 15 passes on the night, completing only four for 48 yards, and throwing three picks. Junior Ace Campbell lead the Panthers on the ground again with 58 yards on 11 carries, including one breakaway run of 31 yards.

While the Luray offense had their way with the Panthers — scoring on three or less plays four times — the Bulldog defense only allowed four first downs all night and forced three takeaways. LHS junior Joshua Richards nabbed an interception, along with Jakob Choat. The junior kicker almost snagged a second INT, but tipped it to teammate Chance Beahm.

Luray (2-8) captured both of their wins this season on the road. The Bulldogs barely escaped Buffalo Gap with an overtime win in September.
