Markkel Newman added 75 yards and a score on the ground for the Eagles.

MILLBROOK 19, CULPEPER COUNTY 6
Gavin Evosirch ran for 141 yards on 16 carries, and quarterback Kaden Buza completed 14 of 17 passes for 96 yards as Millbrook (7-3 overall, 5-2 Class 4 Northwestern District) clinched a Region 4C playoff berth by downing visiting Culpeper County.
Jordan Jackson scored on runs of 7 and 8 yards, and Diante Ball added a 3-yard plunge of his own for the Pioneers.
Culpeper (1-9, 0-7) scored its lone touchdown on a 30-yard interception return by Bracken Hibbert in the second quarter. The Blue Devils’ offense mustered less than 100 yards total and turned the ball over three times.
ORANGE COUNTY 20, WESTERN ALBEMARLE 12
Jaylen Alexander racked up 133 yards and a touchdown on the ground, leading visiting Orange County to its fifth win in the last six games and keeping its slim Region 4B playoff hopes alive as a result.
The Hornets (5-5 overall, 5-1 Jefferson District) built an early 7-0 lead thanks to Alexander’s 6-yard scoring run on their opening drive of the game. They later added touchdowns on a 20-yard pass from quarterback Walker Johnson to Dougy Newsome and a 3-yard dive by Noah Carey.
Western Albemarle (4-6, 3-3) got a 1-yard scoring run from John Buetow and a 23-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Carter Shifflett to Breaker Mendenhall.
Orange entered the night as the No. 11 team in the Region 4B power-point standings, needing to move into the top eight in order to advance to the postseason. Of the four teams directly in front of them, Huguenot and King George won and Chancellor and Powhatan lost. The Hornets will likely jump the latter two as a result, but are hoping to garner enough rider points from strength of schedule to out-point either King George or Huguenot for the No. 8 spot.
