Alex Villanueva threw for 184 yards and a touchdown, but Mitchell defeated Avery 27-17 in a Western Highlands 1A/2A Conference game Friday night in Bakersville.
With the win, the Mountaineers (10-1 overall; 6-1 WHC)

 

share the conference championship with Hendersonville, but Mitchell earns the No.1 seed among the Class 1A schools in the league because the Mountaineers defeated Hendersonville (21-20) back on October 7. Hendersonville closed out the regular season knocking off Polk County, 37-12. Despite the loss, Polk County is the No.1 seed among the Class 2A schools in the conference.
The Vikings (6-5; 3-4) finished in fourth place overall, but they are the No.3 seed among the 1A schools. The Mountaineers, who blasted Avery in the season opener (48-6 on August 19), ran for 293 yards.  Justin Hughes backboned the running attack with 212 yards and three touchdowns. A one-yard run by Luke Childress with 9:11 left in the third quarter got Avery with three points at 13-10, but a one-yard run by Troy Self with 4:44 left in the third period, and a 58-yard scamper by Hughes with 1:42 left to play put the game out of reach. The Vikings only had 41 rushing yards.
