Wish I'd been there

Grant Collins tossed two touchdown passes, and Andrew Brooks (my nephew) blocked a punt (he says he blocked two punts) resulting in one score and caught a pass for another as James River stopped Midlothian in the Dominion District (battle for the Coal Bowl and Chesterfield bragging rights).

Collins (12 of 18, 169 yards) chalked up TD passes of 27 yards to Larente Hamlin and 6 yards to Brooks for the Rapids (1-3, 1-6 - OK, so it was their first win of the season). His quarterback counterpart, Eric Waagner (8 of 19, 109 yards) passed for one TD -- 27 yards to Kevin Solomon -- and ran for another.

Markese Stovall began the scoring with a 1-yard run for James River in the first quarter. Thomas Metcalf recovered Brooks' block in the end zone for a third-quarter touchdown.

James River 6 7 7 6 -- 26
Midlothian 0 7 7 0 -- 14

JR -- Stovall 1 run (kick failed)

M -- Solomon 27 pass from Waagner (Moore kick)

JR -- Hamlin 27 pass from Collins (Brecht kick)

M -- Waagner 1 run (Moore kick)

JR -- Metcalf block punt recovered in end zone (Brecht kick)

JR -- Brooks 6 pass from Collins (kick failed)
