The weather’s been holding so far in the Valley- only one game has been postponed thus far. (Did I jinx tonight??) Anyway, all six games were played, but keep in mind that the New Market-Charlottesville boxscore was never finalized, so I had to get stats from Gamelive.


Front Royal 7, Aldie 2
Strasburg 5, Charles Town 0
Harrisonburg 7, Covington 5
Staunton 6, Waynesboro 5
Winchester 14, Woodstock 10
Charlottesville 7, New Market 5
