DeMatha running back Marcus Coker stays on the team despite a pulled groin muscle that limited him to 11 carries for 61 yards, while running back, Idreis Augustus of Lee, drops to the bubble after missing the Lancers’ second consecutive loss with a pulled groin muscle. Annandale wide receiver Melvin Robinson rejoins the team and North Point junior Connor Crowell makes his debut.

Virginia Tech recruit and the Rams shut out Westfield in the second half Monday night but allowed a fourth-down touchdown pass in overtime of a 21-20 loss. Maryland recruit made five tackles as Cadets stayed close until a score just before halftime in a 37-7
loss to DeMatha. A tough stretch continues this week, with No. 2 Good Counsel on Friday night.
Coach DaLawn Parrish said he played it safe and held the talented two-way player out of a 46-0 victory over Northwestern because of a sprained ankle; it was the Pumas' sixth consecutive shutout. Maryland recruit recorded nine tackles and blocked a punt as the Raiders posted their first shutout of the season in a 14-0 win over Long Reach to remain undefeated.
