We start with baseball....
--Chris Childress pitched a three-hit shutout leading the homestanding Hanover Hawks to a 2-0 win over Lee-Davis and sole possession of first place in the Capital District Friday night. Hanover is now 9-1 in the Capital, 15-3 overall, while Lee-Davis fell to 8-2 in the Capital, 13-5 overall. The Hawks scored both of their runs in the fifth inning.
--Atlee was upset by Glen Allen Friday night, 10-7, another big District road win for the first-year Jaguar varsity program (they won at Hanover early in the season). Glen Allen led 2-1 after five innings, then the fireworks began. Glen Allen scored one in the sixth to take a two-run lead, but Atlee struck for four runs in the bottom of the frame to take the lead for the first time, 5-3. But the Jaguars exploded for six runs in the seventh inning to take a 10-5 lead. Atlee could only muster two runs to close out the scoring. The Raiders are now 6-4 in the Capital, 10-7 overall, fighting to stay in third place in the Capital, which is important when it comes to seeding in the upcoming District Jubilee Tournament.
--Hanover's winning streak reaches seven with a convincing 6-0 win at home over Lee-Davis, handing the Confederates their first loss in the Capital District in 2012. Erica Barrett made a key defensive play to help keep Lee-Davis off the scoreboard in the top of the fourth, when the C-Feds ended up leaving the bases loaded. In the bottom of the fourth, Hanover put together five runs on five hits, and aided by two critical Lee-Davis errors that allowed the first two runs to score, extending the inning. Kiandra Mitchum scattered just three hits over seven innings. The Hawks are now 8-2 in the Capital District, 11-5 overall. Lee-Davis is still in first place in the Capital at 9-1, 15-3 overall. Hanover finishes their regular season next week at Midlothian on Monday, and District games at home Tuesday against Varina and Friday at Henrico. Lee-Davis has a tougher road ahead, traveling to Glen Allen Tuesday night, then hosting Atlee Friday night. Lee-Davis remains in control of their destiny, but a loss next week could open a door for Hanover or Atlee.
--Meanwhile, in the Colonial, Emma Mitchell scattered four hits for another complete game victory as Patrick Henry stayed unbeaten in the district with a 8-1 victory at Mills Godwin. Katie Woody homered for the Patriots, going 3-for-4, while Sam Moore and Madison Gilman had two hits each. The Patriots are 13-0 in the Colonial, have long clinched the regular season crown, and 16-1 overall. They finish the season Monday in a makeup game against another Top 5 Region team at home against Dinwiddie, then welcome J.R. Tucker to Ashland Thursday for Senior Night.
--Atlee ended their two-game slide with a critical road win over Glen Allen, 4-1 on Friday. Jessica Holte pitched a no-hitter, striking out ten Jaguar batters. All of Atlee's runs came in the fourth inning, as the Raiders move to 7-2 in the Capital, 13-4 overall. The Raiders finish the regular season beginning Monday with a makeup game against Henrico at home at 7pm, then travel to Highland Springs on Tuesday and Lee-Davis for the finale on Friday.
--Hanover and Lee-Davis made it through their boys game at Hanover tonight with no incidents, just good play. Hanover defeated Lee-Davis 3-1 with two second-half goals by Josh Hadley-Goggin. The first goal was via a header from a free kick into the offensive zone, while the second was off a rebound when Travis Borkey shot the ball, it was saved in the air by Lee-Davis goalkeeper Drew Shelton, but he couldn't control it. It landed in front of Goggin, who knocked it in for the insurance goal. Hanover is now 8-1 in the Capital, 10-3 overall. Lee-Davis fell to 6-3 in the Capital, 7-5 overall. The first game between these two teams in April in Mechanicsville was suspended in the first half after an altercation between players from both teams.
--Connor Hulser was one of four Atlee Raiders to score goals en route to a 4-0 victory over Glen Allen. Atlee stays 1/2 game ahead in the District standings at 9-1, 9-1-1 overall.
In Girls play, Hanover scored six unanswered goals in the first half en route to an easy 8-0 win over Lee-Davis, improving their record to 8-2 in the Capital, 10-3 overall. The Confederates fall to 5-5 in the Capital, 5-9 overall.
Atlee's girls team cruised to another win, this time 6-0 over Glen Allen to stay unbeaten, 10-0 in the Capital District, 14-0 overall.
BOYS: Douglas Freeman 13, Patrick Henry 3 (Patriots are now 6-6 on the year....)
GIRLS: Atlee defeats Deep Run tonight to improve to 12-1 on the season (score not available....)
