Toler finished 6 of 9 passing for 79 yards with a 25-yard touchdown pass to junior wideout Zac Casto in the fourth quarter. The Tigers also leaned heavily on junior running back Devin Wiley, who finished with 22 carries for 107 yards.
"Early up front, we seemed to be getting to them,'' said Logan coach Gary Mullins, whose team won last year's matchup 20-0. "Gotta give [Chapmanville] credit, they did a real good job coming back.''
Some of Logan's explosiveness was also negated when Brynden "Worm'' Street, who had 94 yards on seven carries in the first half, pulled a hamstring and was sidelined after a 58-yard scamper just before the break. Street, though, returned on defense on the Tigers' next-to-last possession and tipped away a pass over the middle.
Wildcats sophomore Matthew Cox (58 yards) and senior Tyler Vernatter (50 yards) stepped in to fill the void. Senior wideout Josh Rein threw a 6-yard scoring pass to Cox.
"We weren't going to play [Street] at all, but when it got down there to the end, we put him in there on defense a little bit and he got a couple of deflections,'' said Mullins. "He's fine. In a game where we needed him, he would've played. We have a week off and we didn't want to push it."
Logan is off next week before making the trek to University.
"You can make a name there,'' Mullins said.
