MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) - After winning its first five games, Armstrong has hit a bit of a rough patch. The Wildcats have fallen in each of their last two games, including a 56-12 defeat at the hands of Hanover last week. Things don't get any easier this Friday, as Armstrong travels to Atlee in our On the Sidelines Game of the Week.
The Raiders enter with a 6-1 record, but have flown a bit under the radar since falling to Henrico in their fourth game of the season, 22-20. Atlee rallied with a win at Hanover, and has topped Varina and Glen Allen its last two times out by lopsided scores.
After starting 5-0, Armstrong has lost to Highland Springs and Hanover, and now looks to get back on track against a Raiders' team it hasn't beaten since 2006. The Raiders have been 6-1 in three of the last four seasons, and last season won their final seven games of the regular season en route to a run to the 5A South title game.
Kickoff is set for 7:00pm at Atlee High School. Click on the above video to view Matt Estreich's preview of Friday's match-up. This Friday night, be sure to catch On the Sidelines for local scores and highlights, as well as an in-depth look at our Game of the Week.
