West Liberty holds off Williamsburg to advance


West Liberty-Salem withstood two fourth-quarter touchdowns to beat Williamsburg 27-20 in the Division VI first-round high school football playoffs Friday.

Williamsburg scored on a 40-yard interception return with six minutes left to cut the Tigers lead to seven. It was Williamsburg’s second touchdown of the fourth quarter, but West Liberty managed to run out the clock once it got the ball back.

Brandon Upton was 16-of-26 for 198 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions for the Tigers. David Branham rushed nine times for 62 yards while Taylor Cordell had 17 rushes for 54 yards. Cordell had two sacks on defense while Kyle Crawford had an interception.

Trent Thomas had five receptions for 81 yards and two touchdowns. Landon Williams had five receptions for 37 yards and two touchdowns.

West Liberty-Salem will play Cincinnati Summit Country Day in the regional semifinal next week.
