Five games were played last night! We’ve had a run of wonderful, mild weather the past couple weeks. All games that were rained out have been rescheduled, and things are on target this summer. It’s supposed to get warmer next week, but not much rain is in the forecast. (This is me seeing if my words will effect the weather, you know, like Zeus or Thor. (Take THAT, Joe Deck and your driving your car like Apollo driving his chariot!))

Oh, right, the games:


  • Woodstock 9, Strasburg 4
  • Covington 9, Waynesboro 2
  • Purcellville 10, Front Royal 6
  • Staunton 10, Charlottesville 4
  • Winchester 12, New Market 5
