Friday Night Scores and Highlights
It was quite the night for football in Loudoun where the only loss suffered by a team in the county came at the hands of another local program. Park View, Dominion, Potomac Falls and Loudoun Valley came through in the clutch, Stone Bridge battled back on the road and Broad Run and Loudoun County rolled again. Oh yeah, and Freedom is 2-0!
Here are your scores and highlights from Friday's action...
Park View 28, Liberty 25
The Patriots fell behind 12-0 early in this one but senior quarterback Brandon Lee led them back in a potentially pivotal non-district matchup. Circle next week's rivalry game at Broad Run on your calendars. It could be a dandy.
No. 15 Stone Bridge 25, Heritage 14
The Bulldogs (2-0) entered the locker room at the half trailing 8-0 after another strong start from Heritage - who had a 14-0 lead on Broad Run last week before the Spartans stormed back for the win. But senior running back Marcus Harris simply took the game over from that point on, scoring three straight one-yard touchdowns and totaling 132 yards on 26 carries. The Pride (0-2) cut the deficit on senior quarterback Austin Nelson's 23-yard touchdown pass to Brandon McMichael, but Stone Bridge had one final big play up their sleeve. Junior "athlete" Spenser Rositano caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Brian Rody to seal the victory.
Loudoun Valley 22, Forest Park 15
The Vikings entered the fourth quarter trailing 15-9 but scored twice in the final 5:50, including a 55-yard pass from junior quarterback Andrew Taylor to junior wideout Garret Kranias for the winning touchdown. Valley (2-1) also got a big boost from senior running Bernard Thompson (5 carries, 37 yards, TD) on his 17th birthday. Read my full game story from Purcellville here.
Loudoun County 42, Warren County 7
The Raiders (2-0) are quickly shaping up as an offensive juggernaut in the early going, dropping 42 on the Wildcats two weeks after shutting out Musselman (W.Va.) 38-0. Senior QB Austin Campbell has taken the torch without a hitch and County's running game just keeps chugging along behind a strong offensive line. They should be tested a bit more next week at Sherando.
Broad Run 40, Jefferson County 7
The Spartans (3-0) left no doubt in this one, jumping out early and never looking back as they claimed their 17th consecutive win and their 23rd straight regular season victory.
Freedom 12, Brentsville District 6
Look who's 2-0 for the first time in school history! It's the Freedom Eagles (2-0) who took advantage of some more home cooking in a low scoring battle against the Tigers of Brentsville (0-2).
Potomac Falls 13, Kettle Run 7
It wasn't the type of shootout we saw so often from the Panthers (2-1) last season, but this team is going to have to win some in grind-it-out fashion if they hope to contend for a return trip to the postseason. The Cougars (1-2) were coming off the first win in school history after blanking Brentsville 14-0 the week before.
Dominion 28, Wakefield 24
The Titans (1-2) picked up their first win of the season and finally put some points on the board as they sneaked past the Warriors (0-2) in Arlington. Wakefield got on the board first and held a 21-7 lead at the break, which grew to 24-7 in the third quarter. But Jon Gannon's 72-yard kickoff return sparked Dominion to life and Trey Baxter's 36-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter was the decider. This was about as close to a must-win as you're going to have in Week 3 and the Titans really needed a confidence booster to show them they were capable of winning a game - especially coming from behind as they did.
Don't forget, Briar Woods (0-2) travels to Handley (1-0) for a matinee matchup this afternoon.
