Amelia County vs. Charles City County

Charles City went to Amelia County for their last game of the regular season this past friday night with the intentions of winning and taking first place in the Region A, Division 1 playoffs.  However, Amelia County also desperately needed a win in order to qualify for the Region B, Division 1 playoffs after they had to forfeit two earlier seasons wins because of using an ineligible player previously.  Amelia scored an early touchdown and held on to win 13-0.

Amelia got the game started with an onside kick and recovery.  The Raiders were threatning to score, when Panther Terrance Banks stripped the ball away from the runningback and Charles City was able to recover the ball.  Unfortunately, the Panthers struggled to move the ball consistently throughout the night and this drive ended on a fake punt that was intercepted.  The Raiders would get on the board after a short touchdown run and the point after kick bounced in.

There wasn’t much scoring in the game and Amelia got its second score of the night when running back AJ Coleman took it in from just a few yards out to start the second quarter.  The conversion failed, but these would be the only points that the Raiders needed for the night as Charles City got into the red zone on numerous occasions but were shut down every time by Amelia’s defense.

The Panther defense was led by Dominick Barbour and Dominique Williams who both had 12 tackles each. In addition to Terrance Banks’ fumble strip and recovery, he also had an interception.

Charles City ends its regular season with a winning record of 6-4. The Panthers are the 3rd seed in the regional playoffs and will face Sussex Central who have dominated the Panthers for the past 11 years. The Sussex Central Tigers eliminated the Panthers from the playoffs last year and the Charles City is seeking some revenge when they travel to Sussex on Friday night.
