It was the Piedmont District Championship and it was only fitting that two of the top teams in the area, who are both bitter rivals, met for the Championship. Martinsville, a Class 2 State favorite, traveled to GW-Danville, a Class 4 State favorite, and to make things even more interesting the two teams split their regular season matchups.
Things got off to about the start we expected, with the teams trading runs early and making plays on both ends. It was close throughout the first, however GW went a little run toward the end of the quarter to go up 17-11. The second quarter featured a few more runs, with GW going into the locker rooms up 26-19 at half.
The third quarter is where things really got messy for Martinsville.
