Fairmont eruptsfor 46 points

FAYETTEVILLE — What was supposed to be a routine regular season game Friday night for Fairmont ended in a bizarre manner by halftime as Golden Tornadoes routed Fayetteville Christian Academy, 46-0.
The Warriors had no answer for Fairmont’s Jarrod Neal who passed for 121 yards and three touchdowns on four completions.
Fairmont (2-0) lost the coin toss, which proved to be the only thing Randy Ragland’s team did wrong all evening. Fairmont capped its opening drive with a 34-yard touchdown pass from Neal to Da’Shawn Fields.
The Warriors attempted to answer, but penalties stalled the drive. A failed fourth down conversion caused the Warriors to turn the ball over on downs and the Golden Tornadoes took over on their own 30 -yard line. Fairmont’s Cedrique Baldwin scored a few plays later on a bruising run to begin the rout.
After an interception ended Fayetteville Christian’s ensuing drive, it only took Neal three plays to connect with Shemar Barfield for a 43-yard touchdown pass putting the Golden Tornadoes ahead three touchdowns.
“A lead like this gives us an opportunity to evaluate some other players,” Ragland said at intermission before he was informed the opposition had forfeited.
Fayetteville Christian forfeited stating that the game became an unsafe environment for their players. This was told to coach Regland by the officials. No one from Fayetteville Christian would officially comment.
