Statesmen earn first win, 26-8

Randolph-Henry High School’s varsity football team gave its home crowd something Friday night that it had long been hoping for — the Statesmen achieved their first win of the 2019 season, defeating visiting Cumberland County High School 26-8.

The Statesmen took control in the first half, leading 20-0 by halftime.

Two weeks stand between Randolph-Henry (1-8) and its regular season finale. The Statesmen will visit Amelia County High School on Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m.
