The Terriers rolled, 27-14.

VINTON, Va. -

This week William Byrd tried to get to 2 and 0 at Bob Patterson Stadium, but Hidden Valley's defense didn't plan on rolling over.

It was the Terriers second-straight home game to start the season and the Titans hitting the road after getting shut-out at home against PH last week.

Byrd was up 14-7 at the break. In the third, Titans quarterback, Jake Smiley got picked-off by Hunter Shepherd, and the Terriers were in action from the Titan's 43.

Byrd made them pay for that turnover a few plays later when Zac Hill ran it in himself for the 12-yard touchdown. The Terriers extended their lead to 21-7.

At the end of the third, Chris Driscoll was back to punt for Hidden Valley but the Titans fake the punt from mid-field and Billy Howe took the ball not only for the first down, but all the way to the 3-yard line where he was eventually tripped-up.

On the very next play to start the 4th, Smiley pitched it to Walker Brand who was in for the Titan TD. Just like that they're back with-in one score.

With about 4 minutes to play though, the Terriers got some breathing room. Hill went in for the 4-yard touchdown and that was enough to win it.

William Byrd escaped Hidden Valley 27-14.
