The Grandview High School football team had an opportunity to get a leg up on MSL-Cardinal Division play last Friday against the four-time defending conference champions West Jefferson.

Untimely penalties helped the Roughriders earn a 21-7 win. While the Bobcats may be a game out of first, they remain confident. Grandview has shown its ability to run the ball and stop the run. That's bad news for Millersport. Last Friday in a 48-0 loss to Liberty Union, the Lakers rushed for 22 yards, threw for 56 and allowed the Lions' Came Love to go for 103 yards and three touchdowns on five carries.

The Bobcats are allowing 3.8 yards per carry and an average of 17.4 points. On offense they've surpassed 1,000 yards rushing, led by Jason Frank's team-high 409 yards and three touchdowns on 82 carries.

Grandview looks to stay in reach of West Jefferson on Friday at home against Millersport, which has lost 13 consecutive games including all five this season. The Lakers have been outscored 280-26.

Last season, Grandview beat Grandview 39-7.
