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.

Meanwhile, Lee-Davis struggled on the road against defending Division 6 Regional Champion Hermitage, as the Panthers shut out the Confederates 27-0.

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!
