POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. -- Point Pleasant's regular-season revenge tour is officially over.

After beating one of the two teams it lost to during last season's 8-2 regular season in a road win at Brooke last week, Point finished the job at home Friday night.

Senior back Chase Walton rushed for a game-high 170 yards on just seven carries, including scoring runs of 2, 48 and 59 yards on three consecutive carries, to lead fourth-rated Point Pleasant (6-0) to a 49-15 runaway win over previously unbeaten and fifth-rated Oak Hill (5-1) in a Class AAA matchup in Mason County.

Oak Hill topped the Big Blacks in Fayette County last season.

"When you come to Point Pleasant, the only way you're going to win is if you've earned it," Walton said. "We leave everything we have out there on that field. You're not going to just come in here and spank us. You're going to have to fight for it."

Point Pleasant scored on seven of its nine possessions, with only a fumble and the end of the game stopping drives en route to piling up 500 yards of total offense.

The Big Blacks rushed for 406 yards on 37 carries, while junior quarterback Aden Yates completed all six of his pass attempts for 94 yards.

Sophomore back Cody Mitchell added 149 rushing yards on 15 carries for Point, including the first two Big Blacks scores on runs of 55 yards and 1 yard.

Point coach David Darst was happy with his team's performance.

"I'm really happy with our offense," Darst said. "I think we started to gel tonight and we hit some things early. We came out throwing the ball and put them back on their heels and then what a night Chase had. He really came to play tonight."

Oak Hill coach Eddie Souk was impressed with the Big Blacks up front, on both sides of the ball.

"They had a good scheme for us and they beat us on both sides of the ball," Souk said. "We have no excuses on this end. They just brought it to us tonight and beat us.
