MONDAY FINALS, PLAYOFFS UPDATE

It was a good night for Hanover High School.

Both the girls and boys lacrosse teams finished their regular season with victories at rival Lee-Davis, the women by a 13-5 score, the men with a 13-7 victory.

Kara Kane scored five goals in the girls victory, while the boys went on a 9-0 run in the first half to take a commanding 10-1 halftime advantage.

It is likely the Hanover boys, the #3 seed in the Richmond Group of the first-ever VHSL Lacrosse Championship Tournament for 1A-5A schools, will face Lee-Davis again in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Hanover would host.

Hanover girls lacrosse finishes as the #4 seed and could host either Mills Godwin or Glen Allen. Tournament brackets should be released sometime tomorrow.

SOFTBALL: Hanover improved to 11-2 with a 9-1 Conference 20 victory over J.R. Tucker. The Hawks are the #1 seed for next week's conference tournament, getting a first round bye. They have two games remaining in the regular season.

Atlee shut out Highland Springs 22-0 to move to 11-4, #2 behind Lee-Davis (13-4) in Conference 11 standings as the teams prepare for their showdown tomorrow night (heard LIVE on HCS Media Network at 6:50pm ET here at HanoverCountySports.net). Lee-Davis currently has 5.35 points, Atlee has 5.13. Tomorrow night's winner has the inside track on the Conference 11 regular season title. Mills Godwin lurks just behind at 12-5 (5.00).

PLAYOFF NOTE: As of tonight, Patrick Henry is still #1 in Conference 16 at 6.416 points. Halifax County has finished its regular season at 16-4 (5.600 points), Orange County is done at 14-5 (5.158 points). Patrick Henry needs a win in its final two games, either tomorrow at Hermitage or Wednesday at Mills Godwin (LIVE on HCS Media Network) to clinch the Conference 16 regular season title and the #1 seed in Friday's semifinals. The top seed would play #4 Albemarle, the only team in the Conference with a losing record.

BASEBALL: Lee-Davis settled into the #3 seed for next week's Conference 11 Tournament with a 7-0 shutout of Henrico. The Confederates are now 11-5. Atlee defeated Highland Springs 7-2 and improves to 6-9, still two wins behind 4th place Deep Run (8-9). Atlee finishes at Lee-Davis tomorrow and at Highland Springs on Thursday night.

SOCCER: Patrick Henry fell twice tonight, as the boys lost at Mills Godwin 3-1 while the girls were shut out at home by the Eagles 3-0. Atlee boys soccer took a 3-1 victory over Highland Springs to improve to 8-3-2 and in a battle for second place behind Godwin in Conference 11 with Lee-Davis, whom they travel to meet tomorrow night.

PLAYOFF NOTE: The Lee-Davis at Atlee boys soccer match tomorrow night will help determine the second and third seed in Conference 11. Atlee is 8-3-2, Lee-Davis is 9-4. The Confederates enter the game in second place with 4.846 points, the Raiders third at 4.308 points. An Atlee win creates a tie for second with a game to go for both teams. It would also give Atlee the 2-0 regular season sweep of Lee-Davis. No word on whether head-to-head would help break a tie in Conference 11.

A Lee-Davis win would clinch the #2 seed in next week's tournament.
