Lee-Davis Wins 50th Tomato Bowl

Click on the title of this entry to read the thoughts of Lee Davis Head Coach Jason Meade on the fourth down resilency of the Confederates and how it was key in winning their first Tomato Bowl since 2004.

The win "returns the favor", spoiling the Patriots' 50th Anniversary Celebration, just as Patrick Henry did one year earlier at Lee Davis' 50th, winning in Mechanicsville, 14-13.

This marks Patrick Henry's first 0-3 start in 20 years and the first time since Hanover High opened in 2003 that the Patriots lost to all three county school rivals in the same season.

Atlee Football---The Beginning!


Atlee 46, Patrick Henry 7

BIG win for the Raiders, one that has been, in their fans eyes, a long, long time coming, after many years of being on the losing end of lopsided scores against the Patriots.

Congratulations to Coach Roscoe Johnson and team on their first-ever 3-0 start!!!

Patrick Henry now must find a way to regroup and get ready for the 50th Tomato Bowl this Friday night against Lee-Davis.
