North Cross Defensive Lineman Austin Mylott drives hard into the Navigator front line.

It was all about the North Cross defense last week as the Raiders shut down the Hampton Roads Academy 37-0 to advance to the VISSA Div III State Championship game. The Raiders amassed 520 yards of total offense in rolling over Hampton Roads while holding the Navigators to only 88 rushing yards and 204 in the air.  Standout quarterback Thomas Weaver threw for 272 yards and 4 touchdowns and Antoine Martin rushed for 85 yards.

The Raiders will need to harness up and bring their A-Game once more as they travel across the state again to meet #1 ranked and undefeated Norfolk Christian. Kick-off is Friday night at 7 PM at Old Dominion Universities Powatan Field.
