#8SportsBlitz Rivalry of Week 7: “The Coal Bowl” – Midlothian at James River


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Our biggest matchup by the numbers this Friday will be #2 Manchester (6-0) at #5 Hermitage (5-1); the other biggest contest will make or break postseason aspirations for both Midlothian (1-5) and James River (3-3).

The 8SportsBlitz Rivalry of Week 7 features “The Coal Bowl.” A battle of two adjoining communities, more than familiar with one another, that at one point was coal mining territory. It has since turned into suburbia.

Both teams may not draw the masses, the implications from the result are enough to grab their attention and ours.

Kickoff is this Friday, October 14th at 7:30 p.m. at James River High School.
