Last week recap:

Northside: Defeated William Fleming 27-20

-Princeton Hall had three touchdowns and over 100 yards on the ground to lead the Northside Vikings past William Fleming. It was huge win against a higher school that will help the Vikings with trying to make the playoffs.

Staunton River: Defeated Franklin County 52-21

-Grayson Overstreet broke Cedric Peermans record for touchdowns in a VHSL career, during the Golden Eagles blowout of Franklin County. Now this Friday Overstreet has another chance to break another record. He is 156 yards away from breaking the VHSL career rushing yard record, so be sure to watch out Friday for if Overstreet can break the record!

Players to watch:

Princeton Hall (Northside): Hall will be the go to guy this Friday against the Golden Eagles. Hall had a big game last week and will be looking for another big game this Friday. He will going up against one of the toughest defenses in the area. If Northside wants to win, Princeton Hall will need to run like a man on a mission.  

Kalip Jones (Staunton River): A team that has been overshadowed by one of the best players to ever put the pads on in the area, has more than just Grayson Overstreet in the backfield. The reason why Staunton River has been so successful is due to the fact, that they have a trio of running backs that can run the ball in the backfield. Kalip Jones had over 100 yards of rushing against Franklin County, just behind Overstreet. Staunton River should win this game but I expect Jones to have a big game against Northisde.

Score prediction:

Staunton River: 42

Northside: 14

 

Current prediction record (12-0) …… 1.000
