Bassett earns shutout win at homecoming versus Patrick County

Simeon Walker-Muse

Bassett High School senior Simeon Walker-Muse broke the school record for most rushing yards in a game Friday night when he ran for 279 yards against Patrick County. Walker-Muse was also named homecoming king at the game.

Coming into the game Friday night, Bassett’s offense and defense had been rocking over the past three games, having a 153-22 score differential. Neither side slowed down against Patrick County.

Bassett’s running back Simeon Walker-Muse eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards on the season during the game, but that was the least surprising stat of the night. Walker-Muse broke the BHS single game rushing record previously held by Martin Scales, rushing for 279 yards in the Bengals victory.

In the first quarter it was all Walker-Muse as he had all three Bassett touchdowns to make it 21-0 going into the second.

Midway through the second quarter, Elijah Stokes returned a punt for a touchdown, and JaRicous Hairston ended up carrying in a extra point try for a two-point conversion. To head into halftime, Bassett kicker Freddie Lopez hit a 36-yard field goal to put the Bengals up 39-0.

Coming out of the half, Walker-Muse broke off a 60-yard run for a touchdown.

Later in the third quarter, Patrick County’s Demontez Hill connected with Krish Patel for a 61-yard pass to get the Cougars in the red zone, but the Bengals defense came up big, forcing a turnover-on-downs by the Cougars to maintain the shutout.

Halfway through the fourth quarter, Bassett’s Brayden Foley punched in a one-yard touchdown. After a late quarter interception by Jacob Gilbert, Tyheim Cline would take it 60 yards one play later to take a 67-0 lead.

Bassett improves to 5-1 on the year. The Bengals will return home next Saturday to take on Tunstall at 2 p.m.

Patrick County falls to 2-4. They will play a non-district game at Carroll County Friday at 7 p.m.
