Delaney continues to improve for Bees

FAIRMONT — Jake Delaney has started to step up as a leader for East Fairmont.

Delaney has been improving each week. This past week was no different.

Head coach Bill Haddox has said that with Delaney’s improvement, the Bees can put points on the board. That’s exactly what the junior quarterback did this past week when the Bees hosted the No. 14 team in the state in Philip Barbour.

Delaney started the game by going five-for-five with two touchdown tosses in the first half.

The first score came as an answer to the Colts’ opening-drive touchdown. It put East Fairmont up 7-6. Delaney threw a perfectly thrown ball to receiver Myles Johnson from 22 yards out. The ball floated above a defender and into Johnson’s hands in the corner of the end zone. Before the half was over, Delaney tossed a short pass to Scotty Shroyer, who took it out of the backfield 55 yards for the touchdown.

On the arm of Delaney, the Bees took a 21-9 halftime lead.

Delaney countered his first-half performance with a six-for-seven performance with three more scores in the second half.

Two of the three touchdowns came off passes in traffic for Delaney, one being a 32-yard strike to Shroyer in the end zone and the other a 63-yard pitch and catch to Johnson over the middle.

The last touchdown pass came off a 44-yard strike to a wide open David Wadsworth.

All in all, Delaney completed 11-of-12 passes for 258 yards and five touchdowns, making it the second time this season that the junior has thrown for five scores. The first time the Bees came up short, but this time East Fairmont pulled out a 49-25 victory.

For his performance, Delaney is this week’s Times West Virginian high school player of the week.
