by Jamie Harris

This past Friday night, October 28, Morgan Field was ready to honor senior band, cheer and football players while the young Indians foot- ball team was preparing for a challenge from the Wheeling Central Knights.

The Indians took the opening kickoff and went to work. On a fourth down the Indians faked a punt from their own 24 yard line and picked up a first down. The next play the wheels for the night fell off as Wheeling Central picked off a pass and took it 28 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was good and the visitors was up 7-0.

Berkeley Springs next offensive possession saw a fumble on the first play and the Knights took over on the Tribe nine yard line. Wheeling made the Indians pay for the turnover with another score and the extra point made the score 14-0.
