FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Week Seven!

Lee-Davis lost a classic, while Patrick Henry, Atlee and Hanover rolled to home victories......

PH 64, TJ 7: Tyler Phelps threw three second quarter touchdown passes to Khalil Mock in the second quarter as Patrick Henry rolled to a 64-7 win over Thomas Jefferson in Ashland tonight.  The Patriots (2-2, 2-5) recovered two Viking fumbles in the first two minutes of the game, scoring off both turnovers on Otis Harris touchdown runs.  Harris rushed for 150 yards.

ATLEE 56, GLEN ALLEN 33:  Another big night for Kenner Berry and the Atlee offense as the Raiders roll over the Jaguars to improve to 2-2 in the Capital, 4-3 overall, as they try to keep pace in the Division 5 playoff race, entering the night in 7th place in VHSL rider points.

HANOVER 40, ARMSTRONG 0: Sam Rogers would take not one, but two interceptions in for defensive touchdowns as the Hawks improved to 3-1 in the Capital, 6-1 overall heading into a Division 5, Capital District, AND county showdown in Mechanicsville next Friday at Lee-Davis......

HIGHLAND SPRINGS 19, LEE-DAVIS 16 (3 overtimes): What a game!  The Confederates, on the road, take an early 7-0 lead, but fell behind on a 3rd quarter Highland Springs punt return 13-7 before Brandon Sulser found Jordon Prentiss in the end zone for the tying touchdown.  Stephen Hall's extra point was blocked, forcing overtime.  Neither team scored in the first two overtimes, as Lee-Davis went for the win on fourth down at the end of the second overtime and failed to reach the end zone on a Prentiss run up the middle.  In the third overtime, Hall connected on a field goal for a 16-13 lead, but, on the game's final play, D.J. Johnson's, whose eight-yard touchdown run at the end of regulation ripped the heart out of Hanover three weeks ago, snuck in off right tackle, breaking the plane and securing the 19-16 victory.  Highland Springs stays unbeaten at 4-0, 7-0, and will go to winless Henrico next week before hosting high-scoring Atlee in two weeks (a game to be heard on WHAN Radio and here at HanoverCountySports.org on November 2nd.....)

Meanwhile, Lee-Davis (2-2, 4-3) comes home next Friday to battle Hanover in the Game of the Week on WHAN Radio (102.9 FM/1430 AM) and here at HanoverCountySports.org!
