TENNERTON — The Buckhannon-Upshur Buccaneers lost a one-point game and two of their top players Friday in what may be the most painful loss — quite literally — of their current three-game skid.

The Hampshire Trojans escaped Freal “Red” Crites Memorial Stadium with a 13-12 victory over the Bucs, who lost starting running back/defensive back Seth Cutright and starting fullback/linebacker Phil Petrulak to injury Friday. Petrulak left the game in the second quarter with a concussion and Cutright went down late in the third quarter with what B-U head coach Duane Stoeckle believed to be a torn medial collateral ligament (MCL).

Even without two of their top playmakers, the Bucs rallied from a 13-6 deficit late in the fourth quarter and had a chance to tie the game at 13-13 when quarterback Dillon Gaudet threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Dean with 1:49 remaining. But, without their top backfield weapons, the Bucs elected to kick the extra point and Hampshire’s Walter Long blocked Trey Short’s attempt to preserve the Trojans’ razor-thin lead.
