WEEK 1: Monacan 26, Hanover 14

Over 300 yards passing by Tyler Elrod was not enough as Monacan built an early 20-0 lead, then spent the rest of the night holding off a young, hungry Hanover Hawk squad 26-14 in the season opener for both teams Friday night, as heard live on The RVA Sports Network.

Hanover scored 14 unanswered points thanks to two John Dustin field goals and an 80-yard strike from Elrod to Parker Chenault after a big interception at Eric McLemore caused a touchback, keeping Monacan from extending their lead in the second quarter.

Korey Bridy rushed for 136 yards and three touchdowns for Monacan, including a 28-yard run in the third quarter which gave the Chiefs a cushion Hanover could not overcome. The Hawks, 0-1, have a bye next week, then go to Massaponax September 8th.
