From the Associated Press:  

     Salem, VA. (AP) Juan Thornhill threw a touchdown pass and Destin Brown and Clydale Moon ran for scores Saturday, lifting Altavista to a 21-0 victory against Essex in the VHSL's Group 1A championship game at Salem Stadium.

 The Colonels (14-1) intercepted three passes and recovered a fumble and won their first state title since 2009.

 Essex (13-2) turned the ball over on its first two offensive plays, the latter setting up Thornhill's 19-yard scoring pass to Demitre Maulbeck.

 The Trojans managed just 56 yards of offense and finished as the runner-up for the second consecutive season.

 Essex stopped the Colonels after Dominek Broaddus' pass was intercepted and returned to the 9 yard-line on the Trojans' first offensive play. Essex stuffed Thornhill on fourth down, but after DaJour Ashlock caught a pass, he fumbled, Altavista recovering at the 16 yard-line.

 Thornhill's TD pass made it 7-0 with 8:50 left in the first quarter.

--------------------------------------------------

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Dom Dunnaville ran for three touchdowns and Northside played stout defense, leading the Vikings to a 24-10 victory against James Monroe in the VHSL's Group 3A state championship game on Saturday at Liberty University.

 Dunnaville scored on runs of six, one and nine yards and Zach Large added a 37-yard field goal for Northside (13-1), which won its second state championship in five seasons.

 James Monroe (10-5) trailed 10-0 at halftime and lost in the title game for the third consecutive season.

 James Monroe closed to within 10-3 on its opening drive of the second half, but Northside responded with another TD drive to ice it.

 James Monroe's lone touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from Jay Croggins to Calvin Kennedy with 8:05 to play.

--------------------------------------------------------

 SALEM, Va. (AP) - Darren Hays missed an extra point in overtime Saturday, and Giles beat Brunswick 20-19 to win the VHSL's Group 2A state championship.

 Hays' first point after sailed through the crossbars, seemingly tying the game at 20-all and forcing a second overtime at Salem Stadium, but a false start penalty forced him to back up 5 yards and do it again.

 Giles (15-0) tied the game at 13 with one second left in regulation when Tyler Perdue hit Dakota Shrader from 14-yards out in the end zone. The extra period was required only because Bret Whitlow then missed the extra point.

 In the overtime, Giles went ahead 20-13 on a 2-yard run by Brian Mann and Whitlow's PAT.

 The Bulldogs (12-3), seeking their first state championship, got a 9-yard scoring pass from Darren Owens to Quantrel Hardy, making the extra point the only thing standing between Brunswick and a second overtime.
