Atlee, in a classic season opener, gets a huge road victory over Deep Run on opening night.  Down 24-14, Atlee scored two touchdowns to take a 28-24 lead.  The Wildcats later took the lead late, 37-35, but Atlee scored a winning touchdown to take the 41-37 triumph.

This win may turn out to be a much bigger victory for the 2012 Raiders than their 55-14 thumping of Deep Run was for last year's team.  This team is young, hungry, and has proven they can come back on the road and get a win.


Bad news for Patrick Henry, who host Atlee next Friday, and are smarting after a 41-0 loss in their opener at Hanover.  The Patriots threw five interceptions in the first half alone, seven for the game, and the Hawks took full advantage.  All 27 first half Hanover points came off turnovers.

L.J. Jones rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns.  Andrew Knizner took about 75 percent of the quarterback snaps, with Sam Rogers spending most of the night at H-Back, completing his only two pass attempts.  The Hawks begin strong in this, the most highly anticipated season in school history.


Lee-Davis had a tall task, hosting Hermitage in their opener, and they fell, as expected, 35-7.  They did get on the scoreboard on the Panthers, something Fork Union cannot say they did two weeks ago.  The Confederates will travel to Hopewell for a good test against an improved Blue Devils team next Friday.
