Meadow Bridge's Parker keys 42-3 win over Grundy

GRUNDY, Va. — Jake Parker ran for 314 yards and four touchdowns to lead Meadow Bridge to a 42-3 pounding of Grundy Friday night at Nelson Memorial Field.

Grundy (2-4) actually scored first but to say its lead was short-lived was an understatement.

Four plays after a 34-yard field goal by the Golden Wave’s Wayne Mutter, Jake Parker scored the first of six unanswered touchdowns by the Wildcats. Despite a 168-yard effort by Nick Travis it was never close.

Parker’s first TD came on a 59-yard run. The 6-0, 188-pound junior scored again on a 22-yard run late in the opening period and the Wildcats took a 22-0 lead with 4:02 left in the second quarter on Parker’s 2-yard touchdown run. “We just didn’t play well on defense” Grundy coach Jeremy Ward said.

“We let them keep the ball away from us and drive up and down the field on us.”

Parker’s third and fourth touchdown runs, including a 56-yard effort in the third period, came after Grundy fumbles.

Grundy drove inside Meadow Bridge territory four times, including three possessions into the red zone, inside the Wildcats’ 20-yard line.

The loss was the third in a row for the Golden Wave.
