Essex High earns
ticket to state final

The Essex High Trojans experienced an unusual start last Saturday on the gridiron.

+ A | - A
The Trojans dominated opponents from the opening kick in their last two state games; however, Fort Chiswell allowed the homestanding and higher-seeded Trojans only three plays in the first quarter.

Essex later made up for it, scoring 31 straight points for a 38-13 victory in the Group A semifinals for a shot at Altavista in the state championship game at noon Saturday, December 14, at Salem Field. It will be the Trojans’ second consecutive trip to the state final.

Dominek Broaddus completed 13 of 20 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns for the Trojans. He connected with Dartanious Jones five times for 180 yards.

Essex led 12-7 at the half, then widened the lead with three touchdowns in the third quarter.
