The Ashe County High football team finally ended 12 years of frustration Friday night against Watauga. The Huskies (2-0), off to their best start since 2008, defeated WHS 16-13 at Jack Groce Stadium. "Our kids just play hard," said Ashe County coach Brian Hampton, now in his third season with the Huskies. "They just get after it. I thought the biggest play of the game was the blocked extra point. That was a bonehead play (just before halftime) on my part. I tried to run a trick play, we didn't execute it, and they scored. But when our kids blocked the extra point, our kids felt like, 'hey we're still in this,' at halftime."
