GAMEDAY! WEEK 6......

So far, no games are postponed, it's full steam ahead for all of tonight's action; but we suggest a rain poncho no matter where you go!

Atlee (4-1) at Varina (5-0): After their best performance of the season defensively, can the Raiders stop the unbeaten Blue Devils? Varina will be without its top running back, Herb Anderson, out with a concussion. But others will step in.  LISTEN LIVE to Atlee/Varina tonight at 7PM exclusively online at the link above this post HERE at HanoverCountySports.net, then hear a special rebroadcast of the game Saturday at 1pm on WHAN, 102.9 FM/1430 AM.

Henrico (3-2) at Hanover (2-3): A must win for the Hawks to reenter the Top 16 in Class 4A South that will qualify for the postseason.  These two teams desperate for a win; Warriors have lost two straight, the Hawks three.

Glen Allen (3-2) at Lee-Davis (2-3): Another chance for the young Jaguars to get a "signature" win for their program, on the road against a Lee-Davis team who beat them soundly each of the past two seasons. Another chance for Lee-Davis to reenter the 5A South playoff picture by getting back to .500 after learning this week their road to the playoffs is now much tougher with 5A South AD's and Administrators deciding to "zone" the playoffs, so, instead of the Top 16 teams in VHSL Rider Points making the postseason, it's the Top 8 in Conferences 9/10 combined, the Top 8 in Conferences 11/12 combined.  11 is where Lee-Davis and Atlee are. As of today, Lee-Davis has more VHSL points than the #8 team in Conferences 9/10, but would miss the playoffs anyway.  Their margin for error, frankly, is about zero.

Patrick Henry (0-5) at J.R. Tucker (2-3): Is tonight the night Jonathan Clark gets his first win as PH head coach?  The Patriots have dominated this series, losing just once in the last decade, 35-28 in 2009. But Tucker and its unconventional offense has won two straight and its their homecoming, AND they are just outside the Top 16 who make the postseason in Class 4A South. The Patriots could be running into a buzzsaw tonight.
