The Middlesex High School varsity football team lost its second game of the season, 28-0 to the Rappahannock Raiders on August 30 at MHS in Saluda.

The Raiders scored all of their 28 points in the first quarter. The scores included a 40-yard touchdown run; a sustained drive with 12 runs for 57 yards and a touchdown; a 20-yard pass completion for a touchdown; and a defensive score when Charger quarterback Logan Snyder fumbled and the Raiders recovered and ran it into the end zone. 

Rappahannock had a total of 192 offensive yards, while Middlesex had 62 total yards. The Raiders averaged 14.8 yards a carry on the ground while MHS averaged 3.6 yards a carry.

Middlesex is idle this week. The Chargers have a home non-district game against the Lancaster Red Devils on Friday, September 14, at 7 p.m.
