SPOTLIGHT: Backups Lead Way as Lancers Top Rapids....

(RVA Sports Network correspondent and writer Preston Hausser filed this report....)


Agnolucci steps up for Manchester to take down James River

On Friday night, Manchester back-up QB C. J. Agnolucci wasn’t sure he would enter the game against James River, let alone play almost ninety percent of it. When the Lancers’ freshmen phenom, Brendon Clark, went down with an injury in the first quarter after a long run, Agnolucci was called upon to take over. When asked about his thoughts following Clark’s injury, Agnolucci responded, “I felt nervous, but I trusted in my coach, in my team and in myself.”
            Agnolucci looked cool and collected as he racked up 100 passing yards on 18 attempts, while also throwing a touchdown pass. However, the real offensive production stemmed from Bryce Hall, a junior running back who rushed for 3 TDs and 170 yards. Before Clark left the game, he completed a 41 yard quarterback sneak, which ended in his injury. Agnolucci’s touchdown pass was caught by Jonathan Rose, who also finished with 74 receiving yards. Despite these offensive successes, Manchester’s head coach, Thomas Hall, was disappointed, as he quotes, “We’ve got a lot to work on before next week.” There was no information on the status of Brendon Clark and his injury by the completion of the game.
            Despite the score, James River exhibited a growing offensive power to add to their already existing defensive machine. Junior Jack Dash started under center, as 1st-string QB Garrett Lucas was out with illness, and passed for 34 yards on 6 completions. Eric Walker and Jamarey Williams both rushed for 50 yards, while Williams added a TD. Defensive powerhouse Matt Duignam scored his first offensive touchdown of the season after punching in three from the other side of the line next week against Wythe.

            Manchester improves to 3-1 and will face a lowly George Wythe team at home next week, while James River drops to 2-2 and will travel to Fredericksburg next week to face Chancellor.

Monacan to 3-0, holding off Cosby 15-10....

(RVA Sports Network reporter Preston Hausser contributed this report from Cosby High School Friday night....)


For the first time ever, Cosby Football is 0-3. After a loss to Monacan on Friday night 15-10, the Titans are fighting to shake mediocrity, and lack of confidence, as their chances of reaching the 6A South playoffs, even this early, grow thinner. The Titans began to show some life in 2nd half tonight by scoring a field goal and a touchdown against an extremely potent Monacan defense led by its electric team captains. The Chiefs improve to 3-0 as they slowly work toward their goal of making the State Tournament this year after a devastating loss to Lake Taylor last in the 4A State Semifinals.
            Monacan may have lost their star quarterback, Syour Fludd, for some time after an awkward tackle in the 2nd quarter, wherein Fludd left the game after throwing for 70 yards and a touchdown pass. He did not return. Patrick Routsis took over for the Chiefs and passed for 47 yards to keep the Chiefs’ lead while continuously supplying the ball to Monacan’s powerful running backs. Khalik Hamlin and Korey Bridy combined for 125 rushing yards, while Anthony Miller added another 30 yards and a touchdown. Monacan also completed a two-point conversion in the 2nd quarter.
            Riley Doyle started at quarterback for the Titans and passed for 38 yards, while sophomore Grant Squyars saw some varsity action as well in the 2nd half. Trevor Laury rushed for 81 yards on 23 carries and Cosby’s only touchdown of the night, which came in the fourth quarter after a field goal from Bryson Henry in thethird. Caleb Grimes also had five carries for 31 yards. Cosby’s offense looked especially slow and off-beat in the first half, especially after Monacan scored a touchdown within the first three minutes of the first quarter. Cosby will need to figure out something very quickly before next week’s match-up against Midlothian, who was obliterated by L. C. Bird last night 67-0.

            The Titans will travel to Midlothian next Friday determined to right the ship, while Monacan will look to add to their undefeated record next week against Clover Hill.

THE WRAP: Battle Of Chester Defensively Dominated

(RVA Sports Network correspondent Preston Hausser filed this report...)

Skyhawks Trounce Knights behind Defensive Explosion

            L. C. Bird is known for two things: state championships and domination on offense. However, even when their offense isn’t playing at its usual elite-caliber level, the Skyhawks always find a way to embarrass their opponents. On Friday night, Bird crushed Thomas Dale 35-7 in a Battle of Chester that saw L. C. Bird score 3 of their touchdowns off Dale turnovers.
            Bird’s Chris Hayden and Kumonde Hines each recovered a fumble for a touchdown, 50 and 40 yards respectively, while Jalen Elliot caught an interception and returned it 80 yards for another score. Much better on defense than offense, Elliot was virtually nonexistent from the quarterback position, with zero passing yards, no completions and 2 interceptions. The only bright spot in Bird’s offense came from the two running backs, JB Wright and Shedrick McCall. Wright ran for 197 yards on 15 carries and 2 TDs, while McCall entered in the 3rd quarter and bulldozed through Dale’s defense with his 6’1” 235-pound frame. The junior tallied up 68 yards on 13 carries.
            At first glance, Dale looked mediocre at best, but in reality, the Knights put together a good all-around team effort, which unfortunately did not result in many scores. Six Thomas Dale players rushed the ball for positive yardage, while Davonte Russell led all backs with 37 yards on 6 carries. Quarterback Matthew Lawton finished 4/12 with 44 passing yards, a problem that the Knights will need to work on this week at practice.

            Bird improves to 2-0 and will play at home versus Midlothian next Friday, while Dale drops to 1-1 and will face Varina on Friday as well. A game that was meant to be close to the finish ended as a blowout, though neither team played to their full potential in the 2015 edition of the Battle of Chester.
