In an early start to the 2009 High School football season, two area teams made the bus ride back to West Virginia a little bit longer for Linsly Academy and John Marshall.
The Maysville Panthers win thier first game in two years after they made more plays against a Linsly Cadet team that converted a 4th and 20 on their final drive, but not a 4th and 2. Cory Wilson ran and threw for a score as the Panthers win their inaugural game in the Maysville Athletic Complex.
East on I-70, the Cambridge Bobcats took their first lead in the final seconds of the fourth quarter on a Dashaun Lewis score, that made it 20-15 over John Marshall, and that was that.
