PH/Glen Allen Basketball Postponed

Due to a heavy roof leak in the gymnasium of the new Glen Allen High School, the JV game (won by Glen Allen) was moved in the midst of the game to the auxiliary court.

After varsity squads warmed up, it was determined the leak was worsening and, in the interest of player safety, the varsity game was postponed to a later, as yet to be announced date.

This only affected the boys game. The girls teams were meeting tonight at Patrick Henry.

Tough Night For Atlee, Hanover....

The boys and girls teams from Atlee and Hanover all lost in basketball action Monday night.

In boys action, a furious fourth quarter comeback fell short as Atlee lost to Clover Hill, 68-61 to fall to 0-3. Meanwhile, a 20-6 Cosby run through the third quarter evaporated a Hanover halftime lead, providing cushion for a 72-61 win over the Hawks in their season opener (now 0-1).

In girls play, Atlee fell to 0-2 by virtue of a 56-33 loss to Clover Hill, while Cosby had no problem with Hanover, 65-26. The Hawks are 0-1.

FINAL: South County 38, Hanover 22

Third down.

For Coach Josh Just and the Hanover Hawks staff, and especially for their defense, those two words will haunt them for a long time.

When asked how frustrating third downs were for his Hawks, Just answered, "Very. You hit the nail on the head."

Hanover's inability to stop South County on third down on a minimum of nine occasions cost the Hawks dearly as the Stallions built a 24-0 halftime lead on the way to a 38-22 win in the State Division 5 Semifinal in Lorton Saturday.

South County scored on their opening drive, setting up shop at the Hanover 40 after a 35-yard opening kickoff return by Ryan Taylor. On the drive, Hanover did stop the Stallions on third down, but on fourth and short, the Stallions rushed up the middle enough for a first down. On the next play, quarter Shane Foley threw deep for his favorite target, wideout Michael Ferguson, who outwilled and outleapt Hanover's Xavier Crocker for the first touchdown.

"I'd put X on him again", said Hanover Coach Josh Just after the game. "Number 8 (Ferguson) is incredible."

The Hawks spent the first half trying in vain to move the chain and spending little time on the Stallions side of the field. Tailback L.J. Jones, who rushed for 450 yards in two regional playoff wins, only accounted for 18 in the first half.

The Stallions increased their lead for good in the second quarter, first by Andrew Rector's 22 yard touchdown run. Later, after Hanover fumbled the ensuing kickoff for the first of their three turnovers, the Stallions reached into their bag of tricks. On a third down, a double-reverse flea flicker pass to Ferguson was good for 35 yards to the Hawks 5. After the Hawks backed them up to the 11, on third down and goal, running back Jake Josephs took a pitch, stopped, and threw an 11-yard halfback option touchdown pass to Ferguson, making it 21-0.

"We watched alot of tape on these guys and didn't see that", Just said.

Hanover scored on the opening possession of the second half, sparked by a 72-yard pass completion from Andrew Knizner to Sam Rogers. L.J. Jones scored from nine yards out, the first of his three second half touchdowns, to quickly cut the lead to 24-7.

But if there were any doubts of the Stallions' dominance on this day, they would be erased by the Foley-led offense, counterpunching with a touchdown drive of their own four minutes later. The Hawks answered again on a three-minute drive, capped off by a six-yard run by Jones, but the Stallions scored one final time on the first play of the fourth quarter to nail down the victory.

Hanover scored once more late in the fourth on Jones' third touchdown run from five yards out. Jones also converted the two-point conversion to finish the scoring.

The Hawks were uncharacterstically undisciplined in the penalty area, committing nine fouls, including four personal fouls, for 85 yards. Knizner finished 11 of 19 for 197 yards, 117 of them to Sam Rogers. Jones finished with 60 yards on just 12 carries, but the three second-half touchdowns.

Some Hanover fans, and this observer, questioned why several false start penalties seemingly committed by the South County offense weren't called, especially in the first half, as it seemed Foley would take at least a half-step back prior to the ball snap. It would be the third quarter before a false start was called on their motion-filled offense.

Foley finished 12 of 16 for 184 yards and three passing touchdowns for South County, with Michael Ferguson accounting for five receptions, 95 yards, and three touchdowns.

South County (11-3) moves to next Saturday's State Division 5 Championship against Phoebus, a 27-26 overtime winner over North Stafford.

The Hawks finish 2011 at 10-3, and though they lose several key players, the nucleus of this team, including Jones, Rogers and Knizner, will return in 2012.

When asked about the future, Just said, "...we'll focus on that later. Right now we want to spend time with our seniors and appreciate what they've done for this program. Then we'll work on picking up where we left off. That's what we do."

Meanwhile, Patrick Henry's boys team got their first win of 2011-12 over county rivals Atlee 81-54, pulling away before halftime and maintaining a comfortable lead throughout the second half. Khalil Mock had 11 points and 8 rebounds, plus 3 assists and 3 steals for the Patriots, now 1-1. Atlee is 0-1.

Hanover Wins Third Regional Title In Five Years

The Hanover Hawks dominated from the start, upending the top-seeded Atlee Raiders in the Central Region Division 5 Regional Championship Friday night, 31-12.

Hanover broke the game open late in the first quarter. After a 23-yard pass from Andrew Knizner to Sam Rogers made it 10-0, the Raiders' Kenner Berry had a pass tipped on third down into the hands of David Cryster, who raced 32 yards for the pick six, making it 17-0.

The Raiders scored on a safety and on the subsequent second quarter drive moved the ball to the Hanover 1. The drive stalled, with Berry fumbling a third down snap, forcing Atlee to settle for a field goal, and the halftime score was 17-5.

Hanover scored in the third to extend the lead on a drive which included a fake punt 39-yard run from Sam Rogers. L.J. Jones, who rushed 30 times for 166 yards, finished the drive from four yards out, and the game was no longer in doubt.

Atlee's lone touchdown came with four minutes left in the game, a 35-yard pass by Berry to Will McCombs.

Atlee finishes their best season in 13 years at 9-3.

Hanover now moves to the State Division 5 Semifinals next Saturday when they travel to Lorton to face South County, winners of ten straight after an 0-3 start. They defeated previously unbeaten Yorktown Friday afternoon 37-13 to win the Northern Region Championship.

Rucker "Probably" Won't Play In Regional Final

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting Atlee Coach Roscoe Johnson has said quarterback Ruben Rucker "probably" will not play Friday in the Division 5 Regional Final against Hanover.

Rucker has been the starter all season, but injured his wrist late in the first half of the Raiders' double overtime semifinal win over Lee-Davis during a fumble.

Kenner Berry, who in relief of Rucker Friday threw two touchdown passes and ran for the game winning score in the second overtime, will likely start for the Raiders.

Johnson told Friday night on the field after the game that he has confidence in Berry.

"Kenner Berry is a good quarterback", Johnson said.

This means the rematch of these two county schools will feature two different starting quarterbacks. Andrew Knizner has been the signal caller for Hanover ever since Sam Rogers went down with an elbow injury against Henrico. Rogers is back playing, but not in the quarterback role due to the nature of the injury.

Big Second Half For Hanover; Atlee Survives in Double OT

The Atlee Raiders would not quit, coming back from a 14-point deficit late in the third quarter to force overtime, then scoring twice in extra sessions to outlast Lee-Davis 42-35 in double overtime to advance in the Central Region Division 5 Semifinals tonight.

Kenner Berry, in relief of an injured Ruben Rucker, found Shaquille Williams for two touchdown passes, one to tie the game in the fourth quarter, and the other to force a tie in the first overtime. Rucker injured his wrist late in the first half on a turnover.

The Raiders will welcome Hanover for the Division 5 Finals next Friday night. Hanover scored 27 unanswered points in the second half to beat Dinwiddie, 41-14.

Tonight's Division 5 Playoff Previews

#4 Lee-Davis at #1 Atlee
Kickoff: 7:30pm
(Airtime, 7pm on WHAN, 102.9 FM, 1430 AM and on the internet here at

The Confederates have won their last six over Atlee, including the 30-20 upset victory one week ago in Mechanicsville that gave Lee-Davis their first playoff berth since 1999. How much of tonight's game will be psychological? One distinct advantage now in Atlee's favor is homefield, as the Raider program has built one of the most fan-friendly, rabid homefield advantages in local high school football. Friday nights at Atlee are an experience, not just a game.

On the field? Lee-Davis must once again contain the twin-pronged attack of quarterback Ruben Rucker, his bevy of receivers, especially Will McCombs who caught nine balls for 99 yards last Friday, and running back Jarred Hall, who looks to bounce back tonight after only gaining 65 yards on 20 carries last week. Meanwhile, Confederates quarterback Israel Vaughan must step up once again to show he can consistently perform with the top signal-callers in the Capital District (Rucker, Malcolm Bell, Sam Rogers and Maurice Canady) after having his best performance of 2011 in last week's victory. Tyrell Eaton played brilliantly last week and must produce again. More output from Chris Simpson in the running game (54 yards last week) would help keep Rucker and Company off the field.

BOTTOM LINE: Adjustments. After playing seven nights ago, it's all about adjustments. Homefield will be huge for Atlee, who are 5-0 in their friendly confines, including wins over Hanover and Highland Springs. The Raiders want to play at home again the day after Thanksgiving. Lee-Davis just wants to play again next week either at Hanover or at Dinwiddie.

#3 Dinwiddie at #2 Hanover
Kickoff: 7:30pm

Hello again! For the fourth straight season, the Generals and Hawks meet in Division 5 playoff action. Dinwiddie has won two of the previous three, including last year's 28-21 Regional Title win at Hanover, so winning on the road is nothing new for the Generals. Darius Hawkins and Drakar Harvell (a name Hawk fans will remember from 2010) have consistently ranked as two of the top ten receivers in the Central Region this year, thanks to the strong arm of quarterback Bryan Finney. The Generals played a monster early season schedule, losing to Varina, Highland Springs and Meadowbrook en route to a 2-4 start before winning four straight to clinch their playoff berth. The Generals always bring playmakers and athletes and are playing their best ball of the season right now.

Hanover continues to be a team fighting for everything it gets in 2011. The season changed dramatically when Sam Rogers when down with an elbow injury against Henrico, handing the reins of the offense to Andrew Knizner, who has led the Hawks to a 4-1 record. Rogers returned in a slotback role the past two weeks so the Hawks can take advantage of his athleticism and north/south running ability. L.J. Jones, one of the area's leading rushers in 2011, needs at least 20 carries tonight, and triple-digit rushing numbers would go a long way to help the Hanover cause. Kicker Matt Palmen may play a role, a la the Henrico game, come crunch time.

BOTTOM LINE: Familiarity does not breed contempt here. Hanover is grateful for homefield advantage, but remembers 51 weeks ago when these same Generals ended their dreams of a third trip to the State Semifinals on Hanover turf. These hot 2011 Generals are capable of doing the same. But Coach Josh Just and staff have had two games and three weeks of practices to figure out how best to use Sam Rogers at slotback. Execution of that wrinkle may be the difference in tonight's game.


TICKETS: $8.00, available at the gates at Atlee and Hanover.

NOTE: Kickoff for playoff games is 30 minutes later than regular season games, at 7:30pm, and bundle up! Temperatures will drop into the 30s for the second straight Friday night.

Atlee Girls Volleyball Takes Central Region Crown

The Atlee girls volleyball team defeated James River in straight sets Thursday night to win the 2011 Central Region Championship. Atlee only lost one game in the tournament, defeating three Chesterfield County schools (Matoaca, Clover Hill and James River) on the way to the crown!

James River got to the finals by defeating Hanover in a semifinal match in straight sets back on Tuesday night.

In boys play, both Hanover and Atlee won their quarterfinal matches in the Central Region Tourney, with the Hawks upending Thomas Dale and Atlee beating Matoaca.

Atlee, Hanover, Patrick Henry Post Wins in Week Seven....

L.J. Jones rushed for 126 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Hanover Hawks past Armstrong 44-0 in Capital District play Friday night. Quarterback Andrew Knizner, playing for the injured Sam Rogers, threw a touchdown pass. Hanover is now 3-1 in the Capital, 6-1 overall.

Ruben Rucker passed for 213 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Will McCombs, plus rushed for a fifth as Atlee rolled over Glen Allen, 56-20. Atlee scored on its first possession on a nine-play, 71 yard drive that only took 1:12. The Raiders go to 3-1 in the Capital, 6-1 overall and will stay in the #1 position in Division 5 playoff points.

Raymond Minor scored a touchdown for Patrick Henry as the Patriots finally got their first win of the 2011 season, 41-0 over Thomas Jefferson in front of a Homecoming crowd in Ashland. The Patriots are now 1-3, 1-6 and face J.R. Tucker on the road next Friday.

The lone loss in the county Friday was by Lee-Davis, whose playoff hopes took a hit with a 38-14 loss to Highland Springs. Chris Simpson and Tyrell Eaton each scored touchdowns for the Confederates, who drop to 2-2, 4-3. Coupled with John Marshall's win over Douglas Freeman, Lee-Davis will likely drop from #3 to #4 in the Division 5 playoff standings with three games left in the regular season.

Week Six Results!

Wild night for Hanover schools, as they go 2-2 in tonight's action.

Lee-Davis took care of Glen Allen at home, 33-7, to go to 4-2 and solidify their hold on a Division 5 playoff berth.

Hanover gets a late field goal to escape with a 24-21 home win over Henrico, but lose quarterback Sam Rogers in the first quarter to an apparent elbow injury. CBS6 is reporting he suffered a dislocated elbow and he could be out for the season. We'll keep you posted.

Atlee went to Varina undefeated and left somewhat deflated. Varina scored early and often en route to a huge 54-11 victory over the Raiders, their first loss of 2011.

Patrick Henry is still winless after falling at Deep Run 35-14. Two Bryson Wong touchdown runs in the first quarter gave the Patriots an early 14-7 lead, but Deep Run outscored PH 21-0 in the second half for the victory, led by 201 rushing yards and four touchdowns by Evan Hinkle.

PLAYOFFS NOTE: With losses by Dinwiddie and Petersburg tonight to both go to 2-4 and Midlothian losing to L.C. Bird, Lee-Davis' victory over Glen Allen should place them in firm control of the final playoff berth in Division 5 with four games to play. In fact, they may come close to the #3 seed after John Marshall lost to Hermitage 38-6. Atlee and Hanover are expected to continue to be in the top two in Division 5 point standings.

Atlee/Hanover Girls Volleyball Rematch Tuesday

And there's more at stake than District supremacy.


Capital clash with a cause

Atlee (18-3, 9-0 Capital) will travel to Lee-Davis (12-1, 8-1) on Tuesday for a pivotal district showdown. On the line are bragging rights and district supremacy.

The Raiders won the first meeting 25-15, 25-13, 25-5 on Sept. 22, but Atlee coach Curtis Carpenter is taking nothing for granted.

"I know they will be improved and better prepared," he wrote in an email. "It is, and always has been, a big rivalry, and being on their floor I know that their fans will be loud and rockin'."

More importantly, perhaps, is the Confederates have declared Tuesday Go Pink/Dig for Pink night to raise awareness for breast cancer. Both squads will be decked out in pink, and money collected from bake sales and raffles will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

"Not only is it Dig for Pink night, which means a lot to us, but the girls know what's on the line, so they'll be fired up," Carpenter wrote.

Unofficial VHSL Rating Points Standings after games of September 30th

Going into Friday night's showdown, Hanover and Atlee are currently #1 and #2 respectively, unofficially, in VHSL rating points which help determine who makes the playoffs in the Central Region!

Lee-Davis is not far behind in a three-way tie for fifth with Dinwiddie and J.R. Tucker. The top four teams make the playoffs, and, remember, District champions receive automatic bids, with the rest of the playoff berths earned on VHSL rating points, and NOT head-to-head competition.

This makes Friday's Hawks/Raiders showdown important, as the victor will have the inside track to the Capital District title and an automatic berth. The past two seasons have not been kind to Atlee in VHSL rating points, putting them on the outside of the playoffs looking in. The Raiders would love to hold serve at home and take a giant step towards their first playoff bid in 13 years.

Lee-Davis Wins 2011 Tomato Bowl!

For the fifth straight season, the visitors conquered in the Tomato Bowl, as Lee-Davis came to Ashland and defeated Patrick Henry, 16-14.

Tyrell Eaton was the star of the game for the Confederates, rushing for a touchdown, converting two important 2-point conversions (the second one on a second effort at the goal line in the 3rd quarter proved to be the winning margin), and intercepting a Khalil Mock pass late in the fourth quarter to help secure the victory.

Chris Simpson rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown. For the Patriots, sophomore quarterback Tyler Phelps got his first start and put PH on the board first with a 55-yard touchdown strike to Bryson Wong late in the first quarter. Phelps was hit hard late in the third quarter and was on the field for over 20 minutes. He was taken to the hospital for observation and sources tell that he is recovering.

Mock, in relief of Phelps, led PH on a touchdown drive in the fourth to cut it to two, connecting with Raymon Minor from 23 yards out to make it 16-14. A risky fourth and one call at midfield by Lee-Davis to go for it was quashed by K.J. Evans, the Patriots' star on defense this night, giving Patrick Henry a chance to win the game. But the Mock interception ended their final hopes.

Lee-Davis, now 2-1, travel to Varina for an important Capital District opener Friday night. Varina will be missing eight players, three of them starters including their quarterback, due to suspensions.

Patrick Henry, now 0-3, must travel Friday afternoon to Richmond to take on the resurgent 3-0 John Marshall Justices in a 4:45pm game, kicking off their Colonial District schedule.

NOTE--Lee-Davis at Varina will be the "Hanover County High School Football Game of the Week" on WHAN Radio this Friday night! Join Rob Witham for the Richmond Ford-Lincoln Pregame Show at 6:30pm, with kickoff set for 7pm!

Atlee Rolls In Opener: Lee-Davis Shut Out

New Atlee quarterback Ruber Rucker's debut was highly successful, going 25 of 35 for 217 yards and one passing touchdown, plus 11 rushes for 80 yards and two touchdowns as the Raiders handled Deep Run with surprising ease on opening night, 55-14.

Next week, Atlee welcomes Patrick Henry while Lee-Davis has its home opener against Hopewell.

Game Of The Week---Hanover 42, Patrick Henry 14

In the world of high school football, Sam Rogers is a man among boys.

Only 5-11 and 200 pounds, what Rogers may lack in height he more than makes up for in skill, lower body strength, agility, and, most importantly for the Hanover Hawks, experience.

Only a junior, Rogers started his 26th game at quarterback for Hanover last night, leading the Hawks offense on five consecutive touchdown drives to help cement an opening night 42-14 victory over rival Patrick Henry.

Patrick Henry actually began the game with a well-executed, time-consuming drive of over eight minutes. But after converting three times on third down during the drive, they failed to convert on a fourth down from the Hanover 16 and ended the drive empty-handed on the scoreboard.

Rogers took it from there.

In a nine-minute span of the second quarter, he led the Hawks down the field four times, mixing strong running with timely passing. He and new tailback L.J. Jones each scored two rushing touchdowns, giving Hanover a comfortable 28-0 halftime lead.

After Rogers scored his third TD of the night early in the third quarter, his night was done. Andrew Knizner finished the game at quarterback, scoring his own touchdown early in the fourth.

Both of Patrick Henry's touchdowns came in the fourth quarter, with new QB Khalil Mock connecting on a 71-yard bomb to wideout Raymon Minor. Then, after a Hanover turnover deep in their own territory, Mock found Minor in the left corner of the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown pass, a play that featured Minor's athleticism as he jumped over his defender to grab the ball in one-on-one coverage.

Hanover has now won six straight against Patrick Henry and lead the overall series 6-4. Patrick Henry starts 0-1 for the fifth straight year.

NEXT WEEK: Hanover opens its home schedule against J.R. Tucker, who came back from a 21-7 deficit to beat Glen Allen 36-21, while Patrick Henry must travel to face an Atlee Raider squad coming off a rout of Deep Run, 55-14. Patrick Henry/Atlee will be heard Friday night at 6:30 on WHAN, 102.9 FM, 1430 AM, and on the internet HERE at!
