Radford whips rival George Wythe, 20-13

RADFORD — Radford High’s sophomore quarterback Dontae Carter ran for two touchdowns and passed for 167 yards leading the Bobcats to a 20-13 victory Friday night over arch rival George Wythe Maroons.
Carter was 13 of 16 passing with tightend Ryan Webb catching six of those passes.
Running back Dre Thompson led the Bobcats in rushing with 74 yards on 19 carries.
Radford (2-0) got on the board first as place kicker Michael Goodman kicked a 41-yard field goal in the first quarter with 7:48 showing to take a 3-0 lead early.
The George Wythe Maroons (0-2) took the lead with a 75-yard drive capped off by freshman running back Jonathan Turpin’s three-yard run and Michael Jones’ PAT was good for a 7-3 advantage with 1:23 to go in the first quarter.
With the score still 7-3, Radford got the ball with over five minutes to go in the second quarter and drove the ball 84 yards on 15 plays, getting six first downs, and took over four and a half minutes off the clock.
Carter capped the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run and Goodman’s PAT made it 10-7 just before half.
Radford head coach Matthew Saunder remarked “that drive before half gave us a lot of momentum.”
The Bobcats got on the scoreboard at the 8:14 mark of the third quarter when the Maroons’ punter stepped out of the back of the endzone for a safety.
Leading 12-7, Radford’s Goodman tried a 36-yard field goal that was wide right.
George Wythe was stopped on their next possession, and Radford marched down the field as Carter scored on a 1-yard sneak with 11:25 to go in the game. The Bobcats set up to kick the PAT, but instead of kicking the ball, Goodman threw an option pass to Thompson for a two-point conversion for a 20-7 lead.
The final score of the game was GW’s quarterback Jacob Sharitz to Benjamin Lanter’s 30-yard TD pass with 4:25 to go to make it 20-13. George Wythe’s PAT attempt was blocked.
Saunders said “we didn’t execute and that was my fault. We were solid on defense, and I’m glad (Dontae) Carter is on our side, but he’s still young.”

Radford next entertains Grayson County next Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in Bobcat Stadium.
