Wahama and Buffalo faced off for the second-straight week Friday night at Point Pleasant Stadium with the White Falcons beating the Bison by a score 38-0 in the first round of the West Virginia Class-A players.
Kane Roush scored the White Falcons’ first touchdown of the night on a 20-yard run to put Wahama up 7-0. Roush led Wahama with 208 yards on 16 carries.
Wahama then went up 14-0 on an 11-yard touchdown run by Zack Wamsley that was set up by a 24-yard rush by Roush and a 25-yard rush by quarterback, Trenton Gibbs. Wamsley also had a big game on the ground Friday night with 21 carries for 128 yards.
After a Buffalo punt, Roush added to his impressive night with a 35-yard run to set up Zack Wamsley’s second touchdown of the night to give Wahama a 20-0 lead.

The White Falcons then went on a 92-yard scoring drive highlighted by a 26-yard run by Gibbs. Several plays later Gibbs connected with Roush for 25 yards to set up Roush’s second rushing touchdown of the game. Wahama would miss the extra point and head into halftime with a 26-0 lead. The White Falcons then tacked on 12 more points in the second half.
Trenton Gibbs was instrumental to the White Falcons’ offensive success, totaling 60 rushing yards on only six carries and 35 passing yards on two completions.
The White Falcons’ defense was impressive all night, holding the Bison to -1 rushing yards for the entire game. Wahama also managed to force Levi Jordan to throw an interception.
The Buffalo offense struggled all night, but quarterback, Levi Jordan, accumulated 128 yards on 14 completions.
Wahama will now prepare for its matchup with Greenbrier West next week.
