Sports Briefs: Yorktown Down to Fourth-string QB, Loses

The Yorktown football team fell behind Madison 7-3 at halftime and lost 21-3 on Friday at MHS.

Patriots coach Bruce Hanson said the offense, led by sophomore quarterback Jordan Smith, was inconsistent. Hanson said the Patriots need to work on running the football.

Smith, a running back last season, is the team’s fourth-string quarterback. Hanson said starter Sam Nottingham is suffering from mononucleosis and will likely miss the next two games.

Hanson said linebackers Henry Dixon, Sam Burton, Erik Cardillo and Charles Banks played well, and receiver C.J. Bartholomew made some tough catches on offense.

Madison improved to 1-1.
