MILL CREEK - Freshman P.J. Lanham ran for 205 yards and four touchdowns as Tygarts Valley earned its first win of the season with a 46-22 victory over Hundred Friday night at Bulldog Field.

Andrew Torres added 108 yards on the ground and hit pay dirt two times for the Bulldogs (1-8), who stormed out to a 30-14 lead at intermission.

"We're very happy, a win is what the program needed," Tygarts Valley coach Joseph Arbogast said. "A lot of younger guys stepped up, especially P.J. Lanham, who played phenomenal tonight."

Tygarts Valley racked up 394 yards rushing in the contest and jumped to a quick 14-0 lead behind scoring scampers from Torres (21 yards) and Lanham (32 yards).

The Hornets battled back early on and tied the contest with 7:30 remaining in the first half when Chris Varner raced in for a 35-yard score.

Lanham found the end zone two more times before the half and the Bulldogs took a 16-point advantage into the locker room.

Lanham scored his final touchdown of the game to open the third quarter as Tygarts Valley extended the lead to 37-14.

Torres added a 15-yard touchdown run with 1:54 left in the third and Adam Cassel kicked a 26-yard field goal to open the fourth as the Bulldogs' lead was swelled to 46-14.

Varner capped off the scoring in the contest when he bolted in for a 96-yard touchdown with 3:28 left in regulation.

Varner finished the night with 183 yards to lead Hundred's offensive attack.

Dalton Vandevender added 53 yards rushing for Tygarts Valley. He also had seven tackles alongside Keighan Chewning. Eric Davis had an interception, and Lanham recovered a fumble.

The Bulldogs will entertain Moorefield next Friday.
