In other Bay Rivers District contests:
Bruton 35, Poquoson 15
New Kent 20, Grafton 7 – Yes, BRD followers, that score is correct. This game was clearly the shocker of the week, although New Kent watchers knew the Knights (1-6, 1-5 BRD) were much better than their record. The Grafton Clippers (4-3, 3-4 BRD) were missing starting quarterback Joe Cibrin.
York 58, Warhill 6 – The York Falcons (6-1, 5-1 BRD) knew not to underestimate Warhill (1-5, 0-6 BRD), depriving the Lions of a win like previously winless New Kent enjoyed at Grafton’s expense.
Smithfield 28, Lafayette 3 – The Packers (6-1, 5-1 BRD) made easy work of the Rams (3-4, 2-4 BRD), to share first place in the BRD with the York Falcons.

– If you wanted to watch a physical game, this was the one. Last year the Poquoson Islanders (this year 4-3, 4-2 BRD) went home with the win and momentum into a playoffs spot. This year, Bruton (5-2, 4-2 BRD) came away on top and poised to make their move for postseason play.
