Martinsville Bulletin Staff Writers: "Morehead 32, Martinsville 0
Martinsville committed eight turnovers (seven fumbles) and lost 32-0 to Morehead High School on Friday in Eden, N.C.
Morehead had 18 points on the scoreboard before Martinsville ran its second offensive play.
Morehead's defense stuffed the Martinsville running game, and the Bulldogs struggled to move the ball with any consistency.

Anyone have any idea as to why the Bulldogs turned the ball over 8 times? I know they have a new coach, Orion Martin, and I'm sure he has installed a new offense. I know it's the first game of the season and it would be understandable to have 3 or 4 fumbles but 8!!! Martinsville is AA and the smallest school in the Piedmont District. Morehead, a small school in NC, is not really a football powerhouse. I was thinking Martinsville had a good shot at beating them and maybe have 3 wins for the season but now I don't think they will win a game. You can't be competitive turning the ball over 8 times let alone win a game. I hope Orion Martin can turn them around but at this point they have some major ball handling issues to address. It's going to be a long season for the Dogs in the Piedmont District..
