They are stunned in Varina.
For the first time since Richmond City Schools underwent deconsolidation back in the 1980s, the Armstrong Wildcats defeated the Blue Devils in football, and in Varina to boot. The Wildcats took a 32-0 lead en route to a 46-24 victory to improve to 5-0. Varina falls to 2-3 and now must go to Atlee next Friday in almost a must win situation with playoff hopes in 6A South not strong.
With #1 LC Bird finally losing tonight (29-22 to Lake Taylor), both #2 Hermitage and #3 Highland Springs made their case to take over the top spot in the NBC12/WHAN Radio Top 10 Poll. The Panthers disposed of Patrick Henry 38-0 to move to 5-0, while Highland Springs scored 42 unanswered points after the Springers and Glen Allen Jaguars traded early field goals as Highland Springs cruised 45-3. The Jaguars lost their fourth straight and limp back home for a match-up with 1-4 Lee-Davis next Friday.
The Confederates became the first team to score a touchdown on the Henrico Warriors defense this season, but Henrico answered the score with three touchdowns of their own to pull away for a 28-7 win in Mechanicsville. The sixth-ranked Warriors are now 5-0.
J.R. Tucker rights their ship, going to 2-3 with a 28-6 victory over Thomas Jefferson, while 10th ranked Douglas Freeman easily handled John Marshall 21-0 to improve to 4-1.
In on Rivalry Night in the West End, Mills Godwin went to Deep Run and won their third straight game, 27-15 over the Wildcats. The Eagles are 3-2, Deep Run is now 0-5. It's the first time Godwin won two straight in this series since 2004-2005.
