East Carter gets first victory against Bath

GRAYSON — Senior quarterback Cole McClain accounted for three touchdowns to lead East Carter past Bath County 38-21 on Sunday afternoon.

The win, the Raiders’ first of the season, came two days later than scheduled because of an electrical outage on Friday night.  

McClain ran for 94 yards on 15 carries and scored twice on the ground. The senior was also 5 of 8 in passing for 52 yards and a touchdown.

After trading touchdowns early in the first quarter, East Carter scored 17 unanswered points to take a 24-6 lead at halftime.

Jordan Ratcliff scored the game’s opening touchdown and finished the game with 92 yards on 11 carries and the one touchdown.

East Carter (1-2) had 368 yards of total offense while Bath County gained 233 yards.

Senior running back Que Davis had 80 yards on just five carries for the Raiders.

Bath County (1-3) DeKeiton Young led the Wildcats’ offense 111 yards passing while Curren Shrout had 90 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

  • 0414bcclassic0539.jpg Raceland girls, Boyd boys win track Classic

    As Boyd County first-year track and field coach Chris Holbrook stood on the infield and watched a member of Raceland’s 4-by-400-meter relay team circle the track in the final girls’ event of Saturday’s Boyd County Classic, he commented aloud to no one in particular, “She’s not showing any signs of running out of gas.”
    The Lady Rams had just enough in the tank to fend off the Lady Lions’ late charge and lock down their third victory of the young season, edging host Boyd County by six points, 171-165.
    On the boys’ side, Boyd County cruised, beating second-place Rowan County 175-114. A Lions club that finished 10th in last spring’s Class 2A, Region 6 meet has won all three meets it’s participated in this season.
