Randolph-Henry High School’s (R-H) varsity football team navigated a compressed schedule this past weekend brought about by the impact of Tropical Storm Michael, but the young Statesmen were not able to prevail against challenging James River District opponents.

The Statesmen lost 41-14 on Monday to host Nottoway High School, the program in which R-H Head Coach Zach Orlando gained experience as an assistant coach.

On Friday, Randolph-Henry faced undefeated district juggernaut Goochland High School and fell 41-0 at home.

Despite the loss in that game, Statesmen senior Treymon Roberts had a standout night on offense. He had 24 carries for 125 yards and went 5-for-9 passing for 54 yards, but did have an interception.

Senior Xavier Eubanks led R-H’s receiving corps with three receptions for 21 yards.

On defense, three Statesmen finished with five total tackles each — Eubanks, junior Danny Parrish and sophomore Camden Locey. Locey, sophomore Trenton Dodd and freshman Isaiah Brown each had a tackle for a loss.

R-H (0-7) visits Buckingham County High School on Friday at 7 p.m., and then it finishes its game against visiting Amelia County High School on Monday at 6:30 p.m.
