West Virginia claimed bragging rights for the third time in the past four years with a 28-19 win in Sunday's Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Football Charity Classic.

Coach Mike Young's squad jumped out to a 14-0 lead thanks to scores from a pair of Parkersburg South Patriots.  Quarterback Tyler Bolen started the scoring early, then Braxton Johnson intercepted an Ohio pass and returned it  for a second quarter touchdown.

Ohio answered later in the quarter, taking advantage of a West Virginia turnover.  Matt Kinnick from St. Clairsville hooked up with Harrison Central's Nick Pelegreen to make it a 14-7 game at the half.

West Virginia scored on its first drive of the second half. Linsly's Chinelo Oparanozie capped the drive with a short TD run. The two point conversion pass to Morgantown's Blaine Stewart made it 22-7 West Virginia.

However, a WV fumble deep in its own territory set up an Ohio score. Steubenville's Dashon Redman would find the endzone to pull Ohio to within 22-13

They would get no closer. Magnolia QB Tanner Hanna scored on fourth and goal to up the WV lead to 28-13 in the fourth quarter. 

Ohio did get a late score. Shadyside's Chase Kinemond found Steubenville's Matt Petrella, again making it a nine point game at 28-19.

The win is the second for Mike Young as a head coach in the game. He led Ohio to victory back in 1991.

During the game, Wheeling Park's Gabby Payne won the Queen of Queens competition.

Weirton's Chester Barnabei hit a 34 yard field goal to win the Health Plan $10,000 Pass, Punt and Kick Contest.
