After Hodge's touchdown gave the Pioneers (10-0) a 29-20 lead with 2:38 left in the game, Bluefield (8-2) rallied for a TD and, after regaining possession, tried to drive for what would have been the winning score, but Wayne ended the threat with an interception at midfield.
Bluefield quarterback R.J. Bourne completed 10 of 18 passes for 110 yards and two interceptions.
Bluefield entered the game at No. 1, and Wayne was No. 2.
