After 14 weeks of games, six teams have made it to Wheeling to play in the West Virginia Super Six.

The Class AAA championship game will be a rematch of the 2016 title game as No. 1 Martinsburg (13-0) will take on No. 4 Spring Valley (11-2). In the 2016 title game, the Bulldogs defeated the Timberwolves 49-7.

In the semifinals, the defending state champion Bulldogs defeated No. 6 Capital 49-28 after falling behind early.

Martinsburg has been dominant all season and has won its games by an average of 41.6 points a game. Offensively, the Bulldogs are scoring 50.1 points a game, while the defense is allowing just 12.6 points a game.

The Bulldogs will be taking on the Timberwolves, who upset No. 1 Huntington in the semifinals. Spring Valley upset previously unbeaten Huntington 10-7 Friday night.

The Timberwolves have been led by a stingy defense that has only allowed 11.2 per game this season. The Timberwolves have shut out three opponents this season, including two of their last three. Spring Valley’s offense has scored 30 points per game.

Spring Valley is riding an eight-game winning streak after suffering two early losses to Huntington and Hurricane.

Martinsburg and Spring Valley will play Saturday, Dec. 2 at noon at Wheeling Island Stadium.

In Class AA, No. 4 Fairmont Senior (12-1) will return to the state championship after defeating No. 1 Mingo Central 35-6 Saturday in the semifinals. The Polar Bears lost to Mingo Central 32-7 in the 2016 state championship game.

The Polar Bears are scoring 40 points a game this season, while the Fairmont Senior defense is only allowing 12.3 points a game.

Fairmont Senior’s lone loss of the season came in week 5 when the Polar Bears took on AAA University and fell 29-27 in Morgantown.

The Polar Bears will be taking on No. 2 Bluefield. The Beavers punched their ticket to the Class AA state championship with a 37-14 win over No. 3 Bridgeport Friday.

The Beavers have scored 46.6 points a game this year, while only allowing 11.8 a contest.

The Polar Bears and Beavers will kick off at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1 at Wheeling Island Stadium.

In Class A, No. 5 St. Marys (11-1) is looking to repeat as state champions after upsetting No. 1 East Hardy 27-21 Friday night in the state semifinals.

That semifinal matchup was a rematch of last year’s state championship game in which St. Marys defeated East Hardy 23-8.

The Blue Devils will be taking on No. 10 Wheeling Central.

The Maroon Knights (9-4) defeated No. 11 Summers County 42-14 Saturday in the semifinals.

St. Marys and Wheeling Central will play at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 at Wheeling Island Stadium.
