#Preview: Beachside Brawl


By MATMEN, Friday, 4 p.m.

Beachside Brawl

When & where: Saturday at Fletcher.
Teams in the field: According to my list (which may not be the most update), in addition to the host Senators, Bartram Trail, Buchholz, Episcopal, Mainland and Middleburg will also be in attendance.
Defending champion: This is the inaugural Beachside Brawl event.
Synopsis: A nice little six-way scrap should be on tap on the island Saturday. Episcopal, by dint of qualifying out for the 1A state duals next weekend, will have a target on its back, with Sweet 16 teams Buchholz and Middleburg having come just one dual short. Bartram Trail and Fletcher also still are very much in the mix in the 3A-District 1 race, and Mainland will offer several solid matches.
