Happy Valley was unable to get back on the winning side of things Friday night.
The Warriors dropped a 31-14 decision to Unicoi County in nonconference play on Warrior Hill. With the loss, HV falls to 1-2 on the season.
The first quarter saw HV strike first as Eli Ayers broke free for a 29-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion was unsuccessful.
Unicoi, however, answered the bell as Brock Thompson found Evan Huff for a 43-yard touchdown as the Blue Devils took a 7-6 lead into the second quarter.
UC added 10 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 17-6 lead into the half.
After the Blue Devils opened the scoring in the third, Happy Valley didn’t go without a fight as Matthew Bahn scored on a 17-yard run.
The Warriors, however, were unable to continue the rally.
Ayers went 10-for-12 passing, while Bahn had 30 carries for 159 yards.
Happy Valley is set to return to action next Friday as Cosby comes to Warrior Hill.
