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.

NEXT WEEK--Lee-Davis at Hanover on the "Hanover County High School Football Game of the Week" on WHAN Radio, 102.9 FM and 1430 AM, and on the internet HERE at, beginning at 6:30pm!
