Stone Bridge, Broad Run Football Teams Unbeaten in Early Weeks

Dominion gets first win; Potomac Falls defeats Kettle Run.

The Stone Bridge High football team improved its record to 2-0 following a 25-14 win at Heritage High in Leesburg last Friday. The Bulldogs, the defending Div. 5 Northern Region champions, had also been victorious at home over Westfield High, 21-18, in a week one game on Sept. 4.

In the win over Heritage, a member of the Dulles District, Stone Bridge running back Marcus Harris ran for three touchdowns and finished the game with 132 yards on 26 carries. Bulldog QB Brian Rody connected with Spenser Rositano for a 48-yard scoring pass for another Stone Bridge score.

The Bulldogs, in the win, overcame an 8-0 first half deficit. Stone Bridge will travel to non-district opponent West Springfield this Thursday night to take on the Spartans, who are coming off a 35-34 overtime loss to defending Div. 6 region champion Oakton.

Stone Bridge will return home again on Sept. 25 with a Liberty District game versus Jefferson.

The Broad Run High football team stayed unbeaten at 3-0 with a lopsided 40-7 win at Jefferson High (West Virginia) last Friday night. The Spartans’ other two wins this season have come over Fauquier High, 40-6, and Heritage (Leesburg), 23-14.

Broad Run is scheduled to play a home game this Thursday night versus Wilson High of Washington, D.C. That will be the first of three consecutive home games for the defending state AA champion Spartans, who will also host Park View on Sept. 25 and Briar Woods on Oct. 2 in Dulles District affairs.

Dominion High (1-2) defeated Wakefield in a non-region game held in Arlington last Friday night. The Titans, under coach Karl Buckwalter went into the contest badly in need of a win following lopsided losses over the first two weeks of the season to Loudoun Valley and Ballou (Washington, D.C.).

The Titans, in the win over the host Warriors, overcame a 21-7 halftime deficit by scoring 21 second half points. Trey Baxter threw a touchdown pass and ran for another to lead Dominion.

Dominion does not play this week. Its next game will be on Sept. 25 versus Dulles District opponent Potomac Falls.

Potomac Falls is off to a good start this season. The Panthers (2-1) were victorious over Kettle Run (Nokesville), 13-7, last Friday night. The panthers’ touchdowns came on a Zach Hobby pass to Harrison Kee, and a Jules Aquino scoring run.

In Potomac Falls’ prior two games, the Panthers defeated Jefferson of West Virginia, 42-0, before losing to Martinsburg, 41-16. The Panthers’ next game is this Thursday night when they will travel to Liberty High in Bealeton. Kickoff is 7 p.m.

Briar Woods (0-3) will host Martinsburg this Thursday night at 7. The Falcons are coming off a close 17-14 road loss at Handley High (Winchester).

Park View opened the season with a last second loss to Sherando a few weeks ago, but has bounced back with road wins at Millbrook (Winchester), 31-6, and Liberty (Bealeton), 28-25. The Patriots, coached by Andy Hill, are off this week but will return to action next Friday night (Sept. 25) when they open up their Dulles District schedule at Broad Run.
