VHSL Top 20 rank­ings

The Progress-Index - - SPORTS - Staff Re­ports

Week 6’s out­comes shook up the or­der for teams in the Cen­tral District as all teams in the district changed po­si­tions in their re­spec­tive Top 20 Vir­ginia High School League foot­ball rank­ings. Well, all ex­cept one. Dinwiddie Foot­ball re­mains the top team in a stand­out Re­gion 4B, tak­ing down Ma­toaca 42-13 to im­prove to a still-un­beaten mark of 6-0. The Gen­er­als lead two fel­low un­de­feated pro­grams in East­ern View (7-0) and Louisa (6-0) and fourth-place Monacan (5-1). Mid­loth­ian and Huguenot rank sixth and sev­enth, re­spec­tively.

Re­gion 3A saw Hopewell (5-0) move out of first place de­spite the Blue Dev­ils stay­ing un­beaten last Fri­day. Their move down to sec­ond place had to do with the points earned, as they beat fel­low Class 3 school Colo­nial Heights (2-3) while Phoe­bus (4-1) took first on a vic­tory over larger Class 5 school Bethel (1-6).

The loss against Hopewell bumped Colo­nial Heights out of the top eight and into the 10th spot. Also in the re­gion, Peters­burg (5-1) rose to fourth place - the last team to get a home game slot for the first round of the play­offs af­ter stun­ning Class 5 Prince Ge­orge (3-3) on a wild 36-33 come­back.

The loss didn’t hurt the Roy­als’ stand­ing too much as they re­main in the top eight, al­beit drop­ping one spot to eighth in Re­gion 5B. If the sea­son were to end to­day,

they would have to face Ch­ester­field school L.C. Bird, who jumped up to #1 in the re­gion on an un­beaten record of 6-0.

Ma­toaca (0-6) and Mead­ow­brook (0-6) each dropped one spot to 13th and 14th, re­spec­tively.

In Re­gion 6B, Thomas Dale (4-2) moved up one spot to fourth place — the last team to get a home game in the first round of the play­offs — af­ter

de­feat­ing Mead­ow­brook 27-6.

Also in the Mid­loth­i­an­heavy re­gion, Colo­nial Forge (7-0) ranks first, Manch­ester (6-0) sits sec­ond, Cosby (4-2) holds third, Clover Hill (4-3) ranks fifth and James River (0-7) rounds out the top eight with

only eight teams in the re­gion.

This Fri­day, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.

Dinwiddie will con­tinue its quest for its third con­sec­u­tive 10-0 reg­u­lar sea­son with a home game ver­sus

still-win­less Mead­ow­brook.

Colo­nial Heights will look to get back into the top eight of its re­gion against host­ing Ma­toaca, who looks to end its six-game win­less skid.

Thomas Dale and Peters­burg both aim to

move up the ranks in their re­spec­tive ranks with the Knights host­ing Peters­burg.

Hopewell, look­ing to re­claim the top spot in Re­gion 3A, will host a Prince Ge­orge team look­ing to stay in the top eight.
