FRIDAY FOOTBALL FINALS

Patrick Henry 23, Douglas Freeman 21: Logan Bulthuis nailed a 33-yard field goal midway through the third quarter, then the Patriots blocked a would-be game-clinching field goal as Douglas Freeman fell by two points. The Patriots have now won five in a row and are projected as the #10 seed in the 5A North playoffs, to be matched with #7 Potomac Falls next Friday night. This is the first winning regular season for Patrick Henry since 2008; Friday will be the first postseason game for the Patriots since November 23, 2007.

Atlee 63, Lee-Davis 35: The Confederates (2-8) led at intermission 21-7 thanks to converting seven of nine third downs in the first half. But the Raiders (8-2) went on a roll, with special teams leading the way. Back-to-back blocked punts led to two scores, and a Chalin Fairly interception in the end zone extended the lead. Loumond Dandridge rushed for 232 yards and four touchdowns to finish with 1,109 yards in the regular season. Atlee is projected as the #5 seed in 5A South Central and will go to #4 LC Bird in a rematch of last year's 5A South Central championship game won by the Skyhawks 46-10.

Hanover 48, Glen Allen 16: Since his return, Clayton Cheatham has led his team to four straight victories and a projected #7 seed in the 4A South Region playoffs, where they will face #10 Tabb at home next Friday. The Hawks finish 7-3, and wonder what might have been had Cheatham not been injured in their Week 4 loss to Highland Springs.
