  • Wildcats blank Warriors, 20-0

    BLACKSBURG – Coming off an emotional, dramatic overtime win against rival Buford last week, the Indian Land Warriors traveled to a difficult place to play, Blacksburg.
    The Wildcats were hungry for their first win after a tough 24-22 loss to sixth-ranked Lewisville last Friday night.

    Indian Land had two scoring chances in the first half.
