Dinwiddie sets out to end dynasty

by Matt Lincoln

DINWIDDIE, VA (WWBT) - The Dinwiddie Generals had a taste of what it was like to play in the big game two years ago.  Now to get back to that game, they'll have to beat the team that beat them in the 2008 state championship.

The Generals are preparing for this Saturday's state semifinal showdown with Phoebus.  The Phantoms have the nation's second longest winning streak at 43 games.  They've won 5 state championships this decade, and only had one game this season that they won by less than 24 points - and that happened to be last week's region championship against arch rival Hampton.

But Dinwiddie isn't worrying about the massive task that faces them Saturday. The Generals are on a nice run of their own.  They're 12-0, capped by a demon-exorcising win over Hanover last year.  Dinwiddie lost in the regional playoffs to the Hawks last year.

To keep their dreams alive of winning a state championship, Dinwiddie is focused on playing their game plan, and not letting the aura of Phoebus get in their way.  Game time in Dinwiddie is 1pm Saturday.
