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.

  • Return to Mountain State exciting for new sports writer

    When I packed my belongings out of my Morgantown apartment in May, fresh with a journalism degree from West Virginia University, I thought I had ended a chapter of my life and closed the book on my experience inside the great Mountain State forever.
    It wasn’t until I received a phone call back in my hometown of Canton, Ohio, from the Times West Virginian that the idea of a return to the area became a possibility. The opportunity to begin my professional career in an area that I’ve become comfortable with for the past several years was too good to pass by.

  • Post 17 #7 Post 2 #12 mw.JPG Post 17 falls short in Area II championship

    Sometimes getting a bad game out of your system is what a team needs.
    Post 17 Fairmont is hoping that they’ve now gotten all of its bad games out of the way, falling to Post 2 Morgantown, 10-0, via a 7th inning mercy rule, crowning Morgantown Area II American Legion champions.
    After playing 18 innings the night before, Fairmont couldn’t seem to get anything going at East Fairmont High School Sunday afternoon.
    As rain clouds loomed over the field, so, too, did one settle in over Post 17’s offense, Fairmont collecting just four hits the entire game.
    “Definitely not one of our better games as a team,” Fairmont’s Austin Norman said of his team’s performance. “We’ll come up tomorrow, hit and get on the same page.”
