Some eeriness to go with the full moon.

Wahama snapped a four-game losing skid, Point Pleasant lost by double digits in the regular season for the first time since 2012, and Hannan had its two-game win streak come to an end on Friday night during a trio of Week 7 football contests away from Mason County.

The Big Blacks (5-2) had their 24-game regular season road winning streak snapped during a 42-13 setback at top-ranked Bluefield, who led wire-to-wire in the 29-point triumph.

PPHS last lost a regular season road game and by more than single digits back in Week 7 of the 2012 campaign during a 34-14 setback at Oak Hill.

The White Falcons (2-5) picked up their first road win of the 2017 campaign after jumping out to a 14-6 halftime edge, but the guests scored three of the four second half touchdowns before rolling to a 33-14 triumph at East Shade River Stadium.

The visiting team in this head-to-head series has won the last five outings.

The Wildcats (2-4) were going for their first three-game winning streak since the beginning of the 1997 campaign, but Beallsville — who Hannan defeated 55-0 in the 2016 season finale — exacted a little revenge after posting a 53-6 decision.

The Big Blacks, White Falcons and Wildcats all return to action next Friday for Week 8 contests.

Point Pleasant begins a three-game home stand to finish the regular season when it hosts Meigs at 7:30 p.m.

Hannan welcomes Paden City on Friday for its Homecoming contest at 7:30 p.m.

Wahama travels to South Gallia for a TVC Hocking contest at 7:30 p.m.

Due to an early deadline, the Mason County gridiron games from Week 7 will be available in full detail in the Tuesday sports edition of the Point Pleasant Register. Game stories will be available online at mydailyregister.com before appearing in print.
