Friday Night Highlights
This was not the week for upsets or quality matchups as four of the five games on the slate were decided by 30 or more points. Nevertheless, here are your scores and highlights from Week 10...
Park View 31, Dominion 0
The Patriots (6-3) bottled up DeAndre Reaves, holding the league's hottest rusher to 24 yards on 21 carries while forcing two turnovers and blocking a punt. Park View outgained the Titans (4-5) 278-85 with 273 of those yards coming on the ground. Brandon Lee and Tommy Sedeski each rushed for two scores and Kevin Flamenco added a 29-yard field goal to help the Patriots bolster their chances of hosting a playoff game. Dominion must win next week at Briar Woods and hope the chips fall their way so they can sneak in to the postseason for the first time in school history. Look for my full story on this game in Sunday's Loudoun Extra.
Broad Run 47, Potomac Falls 7
For a third straight season, the Spartans complete their 10 game schedule without a loss. No box from this one yet, but Friday marked Broad Run's sixth 40-point game as they extended their overall winning streak to 24 games. Now it's time to wait for the field to play out before they host a Region II Division 4 semifinal in three weeks as the top seed and the favorite to repeat as state champs.
Loudoun County 45, Freedom 10
Austin Campbell threw five touchdown passes, including three to senior wideout Mike Ayoub, the Dulles District's leading receiver, as the Raiders (7-2) rolled to a big win at home. Jeff Pugh had a 69-yard touchdown run for the Eagles' only touchdown of the night.
Loudoun Valley 35, Heritage 0
What might have been a shootout between two of the top quarterbacks in the county turned into a one-sided rout when Heritage sophomore signal-caller Austin Nelson came down with the flu this week. His counterpart, Valley junior Andrew Taylor, threw two touchdown passes to Garret Kranias and Kevin Wiley rushed for two more scores as the Vikes (6-3) clinched a winning season and inched closer to a possible playoff berth.
Stone Bridge 38, McLean 21
Finally, a relatively close contest on a night of complete and utter blowouts. After struggling on offense in two games last week, the Bulldogs busted out in a big way, scoring 27 first-half points to take a big halftime lead and they held off the Highlanders to improve to 8-1 on the season. Marcus Harris rushed for exactly 200 yards and two scores on 33 carries - his second straight 200-yard effort - and Kyle Gouveia threw for two touchdowns and rushed for a third as Stone Bridge (thanks to a South Lakes loss) clinched at least a share of the Liberty District title. The Bulldogs had to overcome 92 yards of penalties, but still outscored their hosts 11-7 in the second half.
