Henrico, Va. - Eric McDaniels ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns, including the game winner in overtime as the Henrico Warriors came from behind to beat Hermitage 20-14 in OT.

Nigel James matched McDaniels output with 148 yards on the ground and a 41 yard first half TD that gave the Panthers a 7-6 halftime lead. Quarterback Malik Myers scored from 36 yards out in the 3rd quarter to extend Hermitage's lead to 14-6.
