The Mathews High School varsity football’s disappointing season came to an end last Thursday, as the Devils were overpowered by the home-standing Middlesex Chargers, 63-7.

The loss puts the Devils’ final record at 1-9 overall; the only win coming on week six against King and Queen. Middlesex, meanwhile, ended the year at 4-6 with two wins over Mathews, as well as victories over King and Queen and Rappahannock.

Mathews and Middlesex opened the 2012 season against one another, with the Chargers squeaking out a 27-23 win. Last Thursday’s game was a much more one-sided affair, with the only Mathews points coming off a 67-yard touchdown reception by Deondre Foster.
