Nov. 8, 1968 – Final Game Between Follansbee and Wellsburg

Wellsburg won the 48th and final football game over the Blue Wave 39-12. The rivalry began in 1917.  Not only was it the last game of the series, but the final game for both schools, since they consolidated into Brooke High the following year. In capturing the final county championship title, Wellsburg won the Silver Saw, the trophy donated by the Wellsburg Kiwanis Club in 1949.

The final points scored by a Follansbee team occurred in the first period when Guy Casinelli fired a pass to Jim Thomaselli.  In the third quarter, Ron Sebek scored the second touchdown on a one yard run.
