October 30, 2009
Two of our local teams continued their undefeated seasons as the 2009 high school season winds down. Only one full week remains in the regular season and some great match ups have been set up for next week.
Western Albemarle got a scare from Orange early on, but quickly regained focus to improve to 9-0 on the year. The Hornets jumped out to the 14-0 lead, but an interception return for a touchdown by Warrior nose tackle Adam Frazier started a comeback that saw Western score 35 unanswered points and cruise for the 35-14 win.
The Warriors will play Goochland next week in hopes of winning an outright Jefferson District title. The Bulldogs are 8-1, after a 49-27 win at William Monroe. If Western wins, the Warriors will earn the district championship. If the Bulldogs get the victory the two teams will share the championship.
Elsewhere, Madison improved to 8-0 with a 28-7 win over Strasburg. Antonio Childress had two touchdown catches for the Mountaineers, who move one step closer to a Bull Run District championship. Madison will travel to Manassas Park, before returning home to close out its season with undefeated Clarke County to decide the district title.
Anthony Hunter had three touchdowns for Louisa, as the Lions stormed past Monticello, 40-14. Louisa is now 6-3, while the Mustangs fall to 3-6. The Lions will host Fluvanna next Friday to close out their season, while Monticello hosts William Monroe.
Charlottesville jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but could not hold off Fluvanna, which came back for the 33-22 victory. After gaining just 38 yards in the first half, the Flucos scored 27 points in the second half to roll to the win. Cameron Coles had two touchdown passes from Ryan Foster in the victory. Both teams sit at 2-4 in district play.
Albemarle returned home to face Mountain View on Friday, but was unable to grab its first win of the season. Andrew Frazier had two total touchdowns, while Jordan Hill pulled down a touchdown pass as well.
Nelson pushed Chatham to the limit, but could not grab its first Dogwood District win. The Governors fell, 28-22, in double overtime.
Covenant traveled to North Cross Friday afternoon, but fell, 45-7.
