THE WRAP: Atlee Wins; Others Fall on Hard Fought Friday.....

Here's the quick look at Week 4 in High School Football across the county.....

1) Atlee dispelled the myth of the Henrico Warriors, cruising to a 38-7 halftime lead en route to a 38-14 win on Homecoming night for the Raiders. Atlee moves to 3-1 with TD passes from Reid McCoy to Daniel Glymph and Austin Phipps. Henrico falls to 3-1.

2) Hanover went to war at home against former Capital District foe Highland Springs. PAT's were missed left and right, two fake punts, multiple 4th down conversion attempts and a very controversial call later, the Springers escaped with a 32-26 win.  DJ Johnson threw for 184 yards and 2 touchdowns, running for a 3rd, while Alex Wilson scored the first and final touchdowns of the game.

So here we go!

GAME OF THE WEEK NEXT FRIDAY: Hanover (2-2) at Atlee (3-1), 6:30pm on WHAN, 102.9 FM, 1430 AM and online HERE at

3) Lee-Davis ran into a buzzsaw at Varina as the Blue Devils advanced to 4-0 with a 33-7 win. Tim Minor led Varina, including breaking off a 70-yard touchdown run. The Confederates fall to 1-3.

4) Patrick Henry's comeback attempt fell a Hail Mary short at home as the Patriots lost to Mills Godwin 28-20. Bender Vaught became the first Patriot rusher to crack the 100 yard mark on the season. Patrick Henry is still in search of their first win of the season, while Mills Godwin, after losing their home opener, wins their third straight on the road.
