Fairmont Senior opened its season by defeating Robert C. Byrd, 28-7, at East-West Stadium Friday.
Malik Boddy returned a punt 65 yards to the house; Noah Harmon ran in two touchdowns; and Luke Hrapchak snagged a pass on a 2-point conversion to give Fairmont Senior a 22-0 lead at the half.
Robert C. Byrd running back Ben D’Annuzio cut the lead to 22-7 with a 47-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. But the Polar Bears answered when Austin Norman hit Ryder Skarzinski on a 3-yard touchdown pass to settle the final score, 28-7.
