The highlights included an overtime thriller in an afternoon game at Norfolk Academy, where the Bulldogs overcame a 21-0 deficit. Green Run was locked in a see saw battle against Tallwood where Kentory Matthews scored what could have been the game winner for the Lions, only to have Breon Waters score the game winner with eight seconds left, just before the lights turned off and play was delayed.
Bethel’s win against Gloucester was shortened. Almost ten minutes of play in the fourth quarter were dropped when lightning moved in and the game was called. On the Eastern Shore, Nandua fell to J.M. Bennett in much the same way.
