Tuesday night was LOADED with action!

FIELD HOCKEY: Lee-Davis and Hanover advanced to the finals of the Capital District Tournament Tuesday night at River City SportsQuest in Chesterfield. Lee-Davis, the regular season champion, defeated fourth-seeded Atlee 2-0, thanks to back-to-back goals within a two-minute period late in the first half by Lauren Wolfgang and Cameron Gibson.

The Raiders, who started the season 6-0, finished 10-7 and a game short of reaching the Central Region Tournament next week.

The Confederates will face #2 Hanover, who needed double overtime to advance past #3 Henrico 1-0, as Miana Sebra scored the night's lone goal 6:37 into the second extra period.  Lee-Davis defeated Hanover twice in the regular season, 2-1 in September and 3-2 on strokes after playing to a scoreless tie just last week on October 17th.  The championship game begins at 7pm Thursday.

In the Colonial District, Brooke Flexon tallied the lone goal and Patrick Henry avenged two regular season losses to Mills Godwin by eliminating the Eagles in the tournament's first round, 1-0.  The Patriots, now 9-8 on the season, advance to the semifinals against #1 seeded Maggie Walker Governors School Wednesday at 5:30 at SportsQuest.

VOLLEYBALL: All three Capital District county teams were winners in three sets Tuesday night, continuing their march towards post-season play.

Atlee swept Henrico to remain unbeaten in the district with one game to play, while Lee-Davis swept Glen Allen to ensure themselves the #2 seed in next week's district tournament. Hanover swept Varina and will likely be the #4 seed behind Glen Allen.

The Raiders last hurdle to an undefeated regular season in the Capital is a trip to Hanover Thursday night at 7pm. Atlee has only lost two games this season, both in the Tournament of Champions in Roanoke two weekends ago.
