Friday, Oct. 4 – The Parry McCluer High School football team scored its first points of the season in a 52-6 loss to Roanoke Catholic on Friday night at Vinyard Park in Roanoke.

Following a series of runs by PM’s Ethan Moore and Nick Reid, Moore ran for a 9-yard touchdown with eight seconds left. Although the extra point kick missed, the Fighting Blues (0-5) had something to celebrate before the clock expired.

The first quarter was scoreless, but the Celtics (4-1), the three-time defending state champions in Division IIII of the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association, scored three TDs in the second quarter to take a 24-0 lead into halftime. Roanoke Catholic, which had a 34-game winning streak snapped by North Cross two weeks earlier, added four TDs in the third quarter to stretch its advantage to 52-0 after the third quarter.

El Amin Shareef ran for four TDs for the Celtics, and Kawuan Ray ran for the other three. The Celtics made 5-of-7 two-point conversions, and they repeatedly recovered onside kicks.

The Blues will begin Pioneer District action next Friday at Craig County (2-3) at 7 p.m.
