Notes: The battle for the Oaken Bucket returns to Point Pleasant Friday night, as Ripley visits the Big Blacks at Ohio Valley Bank Track and Field. PPHS was able to get its first team some rest in week on, as the Big Blacks rolled to a 70-14 victory. Point Pleasant turned the ball over just once last week and it never punted. Ripley allowed Parkersburg South back Brendan Schwedeman to carry the ball for a PSHS record 410 yards on 18 carries. Mike Eddy’s Patriots totaled 471 offensive yards against the Vikings. This is Ripley’s first year under head coach David Tennant. Tennant led Eastern to a 9-11 record in two seasons with the Eagles. Tennant is replacing Jimmy Frashier who went 36-66 in his 10 seasons with the Vikings. RHS was 5-5 last season. This is the first of back-to-back road games for the Vikings, while this is the final of two straight home games for PPHS. This is the first meeting between these teams since 2006.
