Goochland Bulldogs edge KG Foxes

Although the Goochland High School (2-1) varsity football 15-6 win over host King George (2-1) was not pretty by any stretch of the imagination, what counts is the victory in the win column.
The real heroes for the Bulldogs in Friday night’s gridiron war at the “Pit” was the offensive and defensive line. The impact of their workman-like performance impacted the Foxes’ ability to stop the run in the fourth quarter. David Mckenna led all Bulldogs rushers with 94 yards and a touchdown. The Bulldog defense accounted for two interceptions, courtesy of Mason Engel, and four sacks by various members of the defensive line.

As for the Foxes, their three missed scoring opportunities inside the Bulldog red-zone during the first half eventually came back to haunt them in the closing moments. The Bulldog 9 point differential proved to the deciding factor. De’Shon Brown led the Foxes in rushing with 13 carries for 83 yards. Tevin Jones accounted for five completions for 139 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
The first quarter ended in a stalemate, with both defense refusing to yield to each other’s rushing game. Also, the Bulldogs failed to capitalize on field position inside the Fox 30-yard area. After a 40-yard pass reception from Tevin Jones to Derrick Joines, the Foxes, which led to field position near the Bulldog 1-yard line, the Foxes’ attempt at a field gold was block by Bulldog lineman Jesse McLaughlin.
After Goochland dodged another Fox scoring attempt (53-yard reception to De’Shon Brown) in the closing moments of the first half, the momentum took a sudden turn during the Foxes’ opening drive of the third quarter. With third down and 12 yards to go for a first down, Jones found Kelsey Monroe wide open for a 45-yard touchdown. After the missed point after, the Foxes led 6-0.
What the Bulldogs lack in big play performance they more than made up with ball possession. With 33 seconds left in the third quarter, the Bulldogs culminated a 55-yard scoring drive when Lemontre Taylor scored from 5 yards out to tie the game at 6-6. In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs took a huge bite out of the play clock, while scoring on a McKenna 3-yard run. Goochland completed their scoring with a 31-yard field goal.
After three weeks of regular season play, first place in the Battlefield District is up for grabs. With Eastern View, James Monroe, Chancellor and King George affixed with identical 2-1 records, the fight for the coveted district crown currently has no frontrunner.
Due to a bye in the schedule, The Foxes will rest this week before hosting Courtland (0-3) on Oct. 1 for their first district game of the season. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Be there!
Fox football JV results
Their undefeated status is intact. Foxes junior varsity football team continued its unbeaten 3-0 streak after an 18-6 victory over Goochland last Wednesday.  Quesean Jett led the Foxes rushing attack with two touchdowns. Xavier James accounted for a 9-yard touchdown, while connecting with Raheem While and Jordi Estes for two catches resulting in 83 yards in passing. Estes and Antwaan Brown accounted for the Foxes interceptions.
The Foxes travel to Courtland Sept. 29; game time is 7 p.m.
