Maryland Christian, Bel Aire 35
Acadiana, Lafayette 8 FINAL
Tough defense, power running & physical control of the line. That's how Maryland dominated the game. The athletic talent of the Acadiana passing machine was mostly neutralized by a disciplined Saints secondary.
Game Two - 1:00
Lighthouse, Springfield 42
CHEF, Baton Rouge 0 FINAL
It was a fine-tuned complete game for Lighthouse. Along with some costly mistakes for CHEF when they had momentum. Especially when the Chargers stripped the ball in the red zone and took it to the house.
CVCHA, Richmond 42
Christ Prep, Kansas City 14 FINAL
The Richmond machine just had too much depth and talent for the Christ Prep Patriots. Solid play on both sides of the ball, and limiting mistakes. The 2nd quarter was devasting for the underdogs from Kansas City. It's obvious that the Disciples' coaches teach discipline.
Game Four - 7:00
HSAA, Dallas 40
North Georgia, Canton 14 FINAL
This was expected to be a 'wildcard' with two evenly matched teams. It was known that Dallas had sustained devastating injuries in October, but no one knew if they would be back to their late-september form. They erased all doubts with a big win going away.
Those who sought to follow the tournament from several states away, were pleased with the webcast effort by Richmond's boosters. The NHFA staff helped get some technical issues solved and the entire nation got to see all 4 games live. As the day wore on, the sound was added and more scoreboard shots were injected. Hopefully the sound quality will get additional tweaking and maybe some fans will jump in to add more color to the games.
We at the NHFCS urge all teams to secure the services of a willing homeschool co-op class on mass media, to make the games available every week. We're sure that Tournament Director, Hank St. Denis would love to find just the right person to assist as a media director for future tournaments.
