9:29: Thanks for all your updates Lois. Handley starts out 1-3 for the second straight year.
9:24: We have our first three finals. Hedgesville beats James Wood, 17-3, and Loudoun County beats Sherando, 28-0. Also, Strasburg beats Luray 34-14. Good night for road teams.
9:16: Harrisonburg leads Millbrook 21-0 in the third quarter.
9:11: It looks like the Wildcats have woke up. Warren County leads 40-0 at the end of the third quarter. Steele with 111 yards on 16 carries and 3 TDs. Strasburg leads Luray 28-14 with 4:48 left in the game. Todd Dean had a TD run in the fourth to give the Rams a cushion. Troy Gordon had a kickoff return for a TD for the second straight week.
9:09: Thanks for the update Lois. Can the Judges actually start out 1-3 for a second straight year?
9:05: Loudoun County continues to take it to Sherando. It's now 28-0. I'm thinking this isn't an upset, the Dulles District is always strong. It looks like Briar Woods is going to have some serious competition this year from the Raiders.
8:55: It looks like Loudoun County is going to win. The Raiders now lead 21-0 with 11:57 left in the game.
8:51: Lois thanks for another update. It looks like it's going to be a nail-biter at Fauquier tonight.
8:48: Hedgesville leads James Wood 10-3 with 10 minutes left in the game. It looks like I might get that pick right after all.
8:24: George Mason is hanging with Warren County, the Mustangs must have a decent team this year. Warren County leads 14-0 at the half. Gage Steele has 10 carries for 65 yards and a touchdown for the Wildcats.
8:10: Sherando still trails 14-0 at the half. Former Handley coach and AD Todd Hill has his Loudoun County defense ready tonight. The Warriors have had 11 rushing attempts for -8 yards. Todd's a good coach, so I'm not completely surprised. He's obviously got that program going strong. Elsewhere, Strasburg is leading Luray 14-7 at the half. The Rams are on the verge of a 4-0 start, with a showdown against Clarke County looming next week.
7:54: Warren County is up 7-0 on George Mason early. Jeff Budwash had a 62-yard touchdown run in the first two minutes of the game. Let the rout begin. I think Warren County is the area's best team. Loudoun County leads Sherando 14-0 with 3:40 left in the first half. The Raiders must have a strong defense to be shutting down Sherando's high-powered offense.
7:52: James Wood leads 3-0 over Hedgesville at the half. Chandler DeHaven already has 6 field goals this season. I may have picked this game wrong, which isn't good since Jeff Nations picked James Wood. Hedgesville beat James Wood last year in a close one.
7:42: Thanks for the update, Lois. It looks like getting back on the winning track won't come easily for Handley.
7:34: Upset in the making. Loudoun County leads Sherando 7-0 with 11:18 left in the first half.
5:51: Another exciting Friday night of football is upon us. There should be some good games tonight, and I will do my best to keep everyone updated with what's going on.
