Woodberry shuts out J.R. Tucker

Apparently, playing on Friday didn’t change the fact that Woodberry Forest can play a little football.

The Tigers, who lost just one game last season, won 16-0 against public school foe J.R. Tucker out of Richmond.

The Tigers rode a big second quarter performance to the win, with Heys McMath scoring on a three-yard run. Then Cameron Wooster, a defensive lineman, picked up a fumble and rumbled 43 yards for a touchdown to put Woodberry up 13-0 at the half.

Mark Monroe, a standout lacrosse player for the Tigers, then tacked on a 33-yard field goal to push the advantage to 16.

Woodberry’s home opener is September 18 against Bishop Ireton at 2 p.m.
