After a costly interception however, the Warriors turned on the jets and scored 20 unanswered points and walked away with a 27-13 win in our game of the week.

Monticello took on Jefferson District newcomers Goochland on their new turf field. However a lot of early scoring from Goochland put the Mustangs on their heels early. The Bulldogs cruised to a 57-34 win.
