While Blue Ridge was just four days removed from its first loss of the year against Christchurch, the Barons were able rebound with a 37-20 win over Virginia Episcopal, the top-ranked VIS Division 3 team.

VES (5-2) was able to score on its opening drive thanks to a 20-yard touchdown reception from Tom Creasy to Trevon Fields, but the Barons (6-1) answered right back to tie the game with a 53-yard score on a pass from Tristan Allen to Darryl Smith.

Not until the five minute mark of the second quarter was either team able to generate points. Blue Ridge took the lead for good starting with a 29-yard field goal from Shawn Steen, who was a factor again for his team in all-three areas of play. Steen punched in a 3-yard rush on a sweep to the right on the Barons next drive. He then picked off a pass seconds later and took it 20 yard for a touchdown to suddenly turn a 6-6 game into a 23-6 advantage for Blue Ridge heading into halftime.

In the third quarter Leon Straus set up Blue Ridge with a solid punt return. He then caught a 7-yard pass from Allen to make it 30-6. Smith hauled in his second TD from Allen in the beginning of the fourth, this time from 16-yards out to make it 37-14.

Back on the field again, Smith’s impact was certainly felt as the Barons have already gashed teams with the play at wideout from PJ White and Strauss. Smith finished with two catches for 68 yards both resulting in touchdowns. Strauss added three catches for 41 yards and a TD. White’s lone catch went for 25 yards. Allen finished 7-18 passing with 138 yards and three touchdowns.
