COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WRIC) — It was opening night for both New Kent and Colonial Heights on Friday, as the Trojans sought their third consecutive win over the Colonials.
It wasn’t easy, but a Ryan Grey quarterback sneak around the dog pile on the goal-line with just over two minutes remaining in regulation helped New Kent to that third straight victory over Colonial Heights. The Trojans won 16-12.
The Colonials (0-1) managed to hold a 12-7 advantage over the Trojans (1-0) heading into the fourth quarter, but a win for Colonial Heights just didn’t seem to be in the cards on Friday night.
Stalled drives eventually left the door open for New Kent to strike for the go-ahead score.
Colonial Heights was backed up to the end-zone, and their defense managed to keep New Kent from scoring on the first three plays. But the Trojans found a way on 4th down.
The Colonials hit the road next week taking on Park View. Meanwhile the Trojans have their home opener against Bruton on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m.
