Matoaca braced for Dinwiddie at home in the Central District battle between two undefeated teams
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – This Friday there is a high school football game in central Virginia many of which will check the score if they are not at the game. The undefeated Matoaca Warriors will face the also undefeated Dinwiddie Generals.
The Warriors are 4-0 to start the season for the first time since 2016.
But that record probably won’t make Dinwiddie head coach Billy Mills blink twice.
The Generals have only played two games this season and have won both.
They started the season with a resounding victory over Heritage High School, winning 52-12.
Then Dinwiddie had a long three-week wait for his next game against Colonial Heights. Colonials were beaten by starving generals seeing 46 unanswered points.
Across the field, the Warriors have proven their skeptics wrong this season.
Thanks to the tactical prowess of coach Justin Parker and his coaching staff with figures like Quentin Johnson and Cam Johnson, the Warriors were tough to defend with a lightning pace on offense. They also showed they possessed a “chaos” factor when squeezing other teams on the fourth down.
Dinwiddie will need to perform a blocked defense to keep the Warriors quiet, but that shouldn’t discredit the power of the general’s offense.
Brenton Hilton and Se’Von McDowell both had “player of the match” performances in their two games for Dinwiddie this season.
Matoaca has home advantage on Friday. And Dinwiddie is looking to make it an interesting game.
