Pure dominance

Polar Bears end season with win over rival Bees

FAIRMONT — End of the line.

Fairmont Senior finished the season 5-5 with a crucial 27-21 win over cross-city rival East Fairmont.

With the nail-biting win against the Bees, the senior class at FSHS found themselves doing what only a few accomplished — ending their careers with a record of 4-0 against East.

“It felt pretty good since it’s my senior year, and we ended the season with a win,” said senior starting outside linebacker Josey Heaney. “When we were in the locker room, I liked what Ryder Skarzinski said. He said, ‘Even though we didn’t make the playoffs, a lot of teams that do make it lose, in the first round, and their season ends on a loss.’”

Heaney continued, “With a lot of us being seniors, to end the season with a win, even though we’re not going to the playoffs, we are still ending with a win. That in itself is a great feeling.”

At halftime, the Polar Bears defense was on a roll. It only allowed 45 yards in the first half of play, which is much less than the previous week against Bridgeport.

“Our defensive coaches got the folder out when we played Elkins,” Fairmont Senior head coach Jared Mileto stated. “We tried to fine-tune what we were doing against Elkins and that defensive front. We took the things out of it that really worked well and of course wiped out the stuff that didn’t work well. So, the defensive staff did a great job of putting together a game plan and getting the players on page with it.”
