WHEELING, WV- The magical run and arguably the best season the Greenbrier West Cavaliers have ever had, came to a heartbreaking end on Saturday night, Dec. 2 in Wheeling at the Class A state championship game.
Greenbrier West was prepared, anxious, and ready, but ran into a superb Williamstown team who handed the Cavaliers a 42-12 loss.
Williamstown, who won the whole thing in 2022 as well, got off to a fast start and used their experience to jump out to a quick lead behind all-state quarterback Max Molessa.
Molessa, a WVU baseball commit, was 8-of-9 passing for 96 yards and he also had 19 carries for 160 yards. One of his runs was a 98-yard TD scamper in the first half and it broke the record of the longest run in Super 6 history.
Louis Goodnow got the Williamstown scoring started with a 59-yard touchdown run.
For West, Moses Gray led the way on offense with 92 yards on 11 carries. Ethan Holliday had 7 carries for 79 yards and a 23-yard TD run. Isaac Agee added 60 yards on 7 totes and scored on a 25-yard run.
The Cavaliers finished their season at 13-1 and their first championship game appearance since 2013. They made all their fans proud and brought the whole county together to cheer as one, not just the western part of Greenbrier.
