WEEK 9: VHSL Region Standings and High School Football "Big 12 Poll"

Here are the latest Virginia High School League Region standings as released Wednesday morning, plus, below, the updated NBC12/RVA Sports Network High School Football "Big 12 Poll".

NOTE: The top eight teams advance in each region unless otherwise noted.

*****

REGION 6B (Top 7 advance):

1) Colonial Forge: 33.500
2) Manchester: 33.143
3) Thomas Dale: 27.571
4) Cosby: 25.714
5) Clover Hill: 24.500
6) Franklin County: 22.429
7) Riverbend: 21.143
***
8) James River: 19.625

HEADLINES: If Colonial Forge wins final two games (they have a bye this week), they'll likely capture the top seed and the first round bye that goes with it thanks to strength of schedule. Manchester, after Clover Hill this Friday, finish with teams with one combined win between them. Thomas Dale gets unbeaten Hopewell Friday and solidifies #3 with a win.

REGION 5B:

1) L.C. Bird: 29.286
2) Highland Springs: 29.143
3) Henrico: 28.833
4) Atlee: 27.571
5) Douglas Freeman: 25.500
6) Varina: 24.714
7) Glen Allen: 24.571
8) Deep Run: 22.167
***
9) Mills Godwin: 22.143
10) Prince George: 21.143
11) Matoaca: 19.857
12) Lee-Davis: 18.714
13) Hermitage: 18.125
14) Meadowbrook: 17.429
15) J.R. Tucker: 15.000

HEADLINES: The Skyhawks stay neck and neck with the Springers if they beat Monacan and Highland Springs defeats Atlee. An Atlee loss separates the top three from the rest of the pack and opens the door to Douglas Freeman, Varina, even Glen Allen for hopes of being #4 and getting a first round home game. Having a currently winless J.R. Tucker team on closing night hurts the Jaguars.

REGION 4B:

1) Eastern View: 28.500
2) Monacan: 28.429
3) Louisa: 28.286
4) Dinwiddie: 28.000
5) Midlothian: 24.571
6) Courtland: 24.429
7) Huguenot: 22.143
8) Powhatan: 20.667
***
9) Chancellor: 20.125
10) Hanover: 19.714
11) Patrick Henry: 17.667
12) King George: 16.250
13) Caroline: 14.857

HEADLINES: We're essentially down to ten teams for eight spots unless PH can knock off Armstrong and Highland Springs the next two weeks. Hanover needs to beat Henrico Friday. At the top, Dinwiddie gets Petersburg (5-2) and Hopewell (6-0) in back to back weeks. Monacan gets L.C. Bird, Midlothian, and Huguenot. If Chiefs sweep, they could out point even a 10-0 Eastern View, who only has two games left.

REGION 3A:

1T) Phoebus 27.667
2) Hopewell 27.333
3) York: 23.286
4T) I.C. Norcom: 22.750
4T) B.T. Washington: 22.750
6) Petersburg: 22.143
7) Park View-South Hill: 22.000
8T) Tabb: 18.571
8T) New Kent: 18.571
***
10) Lakeland: 18.000
11) Colonial Heights: 17.333
12) Southampton: 15.333

HEADLINES: It's a fight to the finish for the Phantoms and Blue Devils for #1. First things first, Hopewell has to contend with Thomas Dale this Friday. Petersburg's hopes for a first round home game took a hit in the disappointing loss at Thomas Dale last Friday. Now they need at least one more win to solidify postseason play.

REGION 3B:

1) Culpeper Co.: 21.571
2) Spotsylvania: 21.429
3) Brentsville District: 19.000
4) Thomas Jefferson: 18.714
5) John Marshall: 17.286
6) Manassas Park 17.000 (only listed with one game)
7) James Monroe: 16.714
8) Skyline: 16.429
9) Armstrong: 16.167
***
10) George Wythe: 14.857
11) William Monroe: 13.714
12) Warren County: 13.286

HEADLINES: TJ is sliding as they play through the Colonial District. A win soon helps keep them home in the first round. We still don't know why a Manassas Park team, who announced in August they wouldn't play this year, is still listed by the VHSL in the region standings.

REGION 2A:

1) Goochland: 23.200 (game vs Fork Union doesn't count)
2) Poquoson: 22.833
3) Amelia: 22.667
4) King William: 20.833
5) Greensville: 16.857
6) Nottoway: 16.333
7) Brunswick: 16.000
8) Arcadia: 15.375
***
9) Nandua: 15.250
10) Prince Edward: 14.833
11) Bluestone: 14.143
12) Bruton: 12.333
13) Randolph-Henry: 9.800

HEADLINES: Poquoson still has York and Lafayette to go, while Goochland plays twice in three days over this coming weekend, then contends with Amelia on closing night, November 2nd. King William lurks behind, seemingly in good shape for a first round home contest.

REGION 1A:

1) Franklin: 19.143
2T) Rappahannock: 19.000
2T) Northumberland: 19.000
2T) West Point: 19.000
5) Colonial Beach: 17.143
6) Essex: 16.714
7) Northampton: 16.167
8) Washington & Lee: 14.167
***
9) Sussex Central: 12.571
10) Windsor: 10.857
11) Lancaster: 10.571
12) Mathews: 9.875
13T) King & Queen Central: 9.000
13T) Surry: 9.000

HEADLINES: While it's not been an Essex year by Essex standards, they look safe for the postseason, and definitely in with another victory. The traffic jam at the #2 seed is fascinating.
