It was an hard fought game, but a two-point conversion did the deal on Wirt. The two touchdowns of the evening were by Michael Fitzwater and Zach Houchin, with Evan Cunningham making the extra points conversion to make the win.

It was a joyous victory circle with coach Buck Stewart praising his team and players sharing their highlights. Calhoun is now 4-2 and will play Parkersburg Catholic next Friday.
