Hard as they may have tried, the Nelson County High Governors couldn’t pull out a win for their final game of the season. Alta Vista shut out The Govs by a score of 41-0. Nelson had only one winning game this entire season, their homecoming, against Chatham at the end of October. The Govs end the season 1-9.

Our NCL Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura has tirelessly made the trip to most every game this season. He was there for this final one. Paul tells us,” They played their hearts out as usual,” but in the end it wasn’t enough.
