PINE BELT (WDAM) -

After a disappointing loss in its season-opener, Oak Grove bounced back in tune to a 27-14 win over Wayne County on Friday night.

It was a close game throughout but Oak Grove led most of the way until the War Eagles took their first lead at 14-13 late in the third quarter behind senior running back Schdarious Chambers’ 12-yard touchdown run.

The Warriors would eventually respond, reclaiming their lead when Orlando Simon made the most of his first touches of the season as the junior running back muscled his way into the end zone from the two-yard line.

A two-point conversion later, Oak Grove led 21-14 and would add to its lead with another Simon rushing touchdown with under a minute remaining in the game.

After two red zone interceptions and a scoreless first quarter, Oak Grove’s struggles in its opener seemed to be carrying over to game two.

But senior running back Dwayne Lee broke the scoring drought with a 40-yard scamper and the Warriors first touchdown of the 2016 season with 10 minutes left in the second quarter.

Later in the second, Wayne County senior tailback Chis Cooley would tie things up with a two-yard touchdown run.

But Oak Grove would take a 13-7 lead into halftime after senior quarterback Max Crawford aired one out 54 yards to sophomore Kevin Barnett for a touchdown.
