The South County Secondary School football team got to experience what no other high school football team ever has when it played a night game at Patriot District opponent T.C. Williams High School last Friday night, Oct. 29, in Alexandria.
The Titans, over the years, have played their home games on Saturday afternoons. T.C., in the highly-celebrated night game event, did not disappoint its fans and defeated South County, 28-7, in the late-season, week 9 affair.
“It was a real nice atmosphere,” said South County coach Pete Bendorf. “T.C. has a lot of pride in their school that many times goes unnoticed on Saturday afternoon. They had an excellent crowd and I felt it was a great evening of high school football. I think the atmosphere was great for both teams.”
The Stallions (3-6) entered the game looking to win for the second week in a row after having defeated Lee High the week before, 39-7. South County will wrap up its season with a home game versus Woodson this Friday night at 7:30.
“We played extremely hard - maybe not well all the time - as T.C. did as well,” said Bendorf, of the game against the 5-4 Titans. “Both teams played very well on defense. T.C. started to win the field position battle in the fourth quarter and was able to make a couple of keys plays in the fourth quarter. We really enjoyed the opportunity to play at T.C. under the lights, although not happy with the outcome.”
