NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Several high school football teams from Hampton Roads geared up for state championships on Saturday.
Old Dominion University’s S.B. Ballard Stadium hosted two of the local teams competing. Oscar Smith (12-1) faced off against James Madison (13-1) at noon for class 6.
Then at 3 p.m., for Class 5, Maury (8-1) is faced off against currently undefeated Stone Bridge (14-0), also at ODU.
At 4:40 p.m., Phoebus (13-1) took on Liberty Christian (13-0) at the Class 3 game in Lynchburg.
Phoebus High School, Class 3
On Dec. 4, Phoebus continued its season-long domination by shutting out Brentsville District (11-3) 43-0 at Darling Stadium in Hampton.
Since 2001, Phoebus has won 7 state titles but hasn’t won the championship since 2011, so the seniors on the Phantoms want to bring the crown back to Phoebus.
The Phantoms defeated Liberty Christian School 22-14 to bring home the state title for the 8th time.
Maury High School, Class 5
Looking to win its second state championship game in the last three seasons, Maury instead dealt with devastating defeat. Stone Bride scored on a 38-yard touchdown pass as time expired to win the Class 5 State championship 27-21 over the Commodores.
Oscar Smith High School, Class 6
With Oscar Smith, the Tigers are back in a familiar spot on the big stage looking for back-to-back titles in the same year.
Oscar Smith High School defeated Jame Madison 42-17 to win the Class 6 state title.
