L.C. Bird tops Thomas Dale to improve to 3-0

Chesterfield, VA (WWBT)- L.C. Bird and Thomas Dale is one of the area's fiercest rivalries, regardless of the sport.  After the Skyhawks took two games from the Knights on the football field this season, the two teams met for the first of two match-ups on the basketball court on Monday night.

This was a back-and-forth game that saw both teams make runs, but in the end, it was L.C. Bird holding on for the 60-55 win.  Thomas Dale jumped out strong, opening up the game on a 10-0 run, but Bird charged back and the game was close throughout.  The Skyhawks improve to 3-0 with the win.

Last season, L.C. Bird advanced to the state championship game, where the Skyhawks fell to I.C. Norcom.

In other action, Midlothian topped Glen Allen, 58-47.  The Jaguars jumped out to a first quarter lead, but the Trojans stormed back and pulled away.
