Some huge games this week- Manchester-Bird, Thomas Dale-Matoaca and Monacan-Cosby... let's talk about what you can expect and playoff implications...
Fields won a starting corner spot during the spring after playing sparingly in his first two seasons. The Pirates haven’t had much to cheer about this season, but Fields has been more than stellar with 24 tackles and three pass breakups through eight games.
Thomas Dale won the premier showdown of the old “Central District” this season, defeating Dinwiddie in a dramatic, back-and-forth affair.
The Matoaca Warriors took home the Field Hockey Conference 12 Championship last week, defeating Manchester 3-1 to claim the trophy. Along the way, they also beat L.C. Bird and Prince George (the top seed and heavy favorite) but a couple of months ago, it didn’t seem like that’s where the season was headed.
