The Mathews High School varsity football team fell to 1-6 (1-1 in the Tidewater District) following Friday night’s 56-0 shutout loss to the visiting King William Cavaliers.
King William (6-1) dominated from kickoff to final gun, taking less than a minute to score its first touchdown. The Cavaliers added four more touchdowns in the first half to pull ahead, 36-0. The MHS offense, meanwhile, was unable to get a first down until 3:36 in the first half, and that came on a pass interference penalty.
The Cavaliers added two more touchdowns in the second half, as the players switched to a running clock.
