The two teams butted heads at Kenneth Dobson Stadium

PULASKI, Va. -

Christiansburg and Pulaski County butted heads this week at Kenneth Dobson Stadium, renewing a series that hasn't seen that many close games with the exception of last year's three point margin.

In the third quarter, Pulaski's Brandon Jones managed to get 5 yards after being flipped up in the air, landed on his feet and kept going.

In the fourth quarter, Christiansburg was trying to put this one away.  Drew Dunn sniffed the endzone for the Blue Demons to open up a 28 to 7 advantage.

Pulaski was quick to respond as Quarterback Marcus Johnston was on the draw. The play took off up the sidelines after some great blocking and secured the touchdown with an 84 yard run. That got it to 28-14 but it was too little too late.

Late in the fourth Johnston was looking to make a big play on 4th and 37 is wrapped up by number 14 Brodyn Huddleston.  Christiansburg added a late safety for the final tally, 30 to 14 the Demons over Pulaski.

Tim Cromer/Christiansburg Head Coach: "I think we ran the ball pretty effectively.  And defensively we played well Except for two big plays So that's a lesson we had to learn.  This was a big game at the beginning of the year it was a rivalry game, River Ridge District game.  A huge game for us first game of the year. And I'm proud of how our kids responded to it."
