HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – Varina’s been one of the area’s most successful programs this fall, but this year’s team was trying to accomplish something that has only been done once since 2008 – a 6-0 start.
A road trip to Atlee on Friday for Raiders homecoming stood in Varina’s way, but the Blue Devils were up for the challenge. A 19-point first quarter helped lift Varina to a 45-7 win.
Varina running back Curtis Green was busy for the Blue Devils from the get-go.
Varina marched down the field on the game’s opening drive, and Green was the one to get the Blue Devils on the scoreboard with a 4-yard touchdown run.
On Varina’s second drive, same situation. It was Green again finding the end-zone for the touchdown.
The Blue Devils tacked on a punt return touchdown to cap off the big opening frame.
Then just before halftime, Tae’mon Brown added six more points with a touchdown run.
Varina plays host to Henrico next Friday night, while Atlee has a date with Armstrong. Both games kick off at 7 p.m.
