The Wheeling Park Patriots led 35-0 at one point, and finished off arch-rivals John Marshall 41-6 at Wheeling Island Stadium.
Senior fullback Theo Blackston carried the ball 15 times for 159 yards and a touchdown. Senior running back Michael Grove and junior Elijah Bell each added a pair of touchdowns. Grove’s scores came on the ground and through the air, and Bell’s came via the pass and returned a fumble for a score.
The Patriots, now 8-2, will most likely finish eight in the Class AAA rankings, and host Lewis County next weekend. The official pairings come out Sunday.
John Marshall finished the season at 5-5.
