MOOREFIELD - By the time the final gun sounded Friday night Calhoun had dropped a 52-18 decision to Moorefield and more importantly its ninth straight game to finish 1-9 on the 2011 campaign.
It marked the second straight year for the Red Devils to go 1-9.
Both years Calhoun opened the season with a win over Gilmer then dropped the next nine in a row.
Moorefield got on the board first taking a 7-0 first quarter lead. The Yellowjackets, 7-3, headed for the state Class A playoffs, must have liked it since it reeled off the next 32 points for a 39-0 first half lead before Calhoun got on the board.
It was 39-6 at halftime but Moorefield quickly changed that by returning the second half kickoff for a touchdown making it 46-6.
Calhoun returned the favor when Cameron Litviak returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards for a Red Devils touchdown.
Calhoun also had touchdowns from Logan Moore, who led the attack with 138 on 19 carries, and Nathan Cosgrove also had touchdowns for Calhoun.
Calhoun went into the 2011 season with a very inexperienced team - five seniors - and a first year coach in Michael Fitzwater.
It also went into the season with a very tough schedule that saw six of its 10 opponents make the playoffs, five in Class A and one in Class AA.
