Fork Union Military Academy used the running of Division I-A recruit Chris Perry and an untimely Potomac penalty to spoil Keith King's head coaching debut with a 15-7 victory last night at Potomac.
After Perry's four-yard run in the fourth quarter gave his team an eight-point lead, Panthers running back Rico Lloyd returned the kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown that would have cut the FUMA lead to 15-13. The play, however, was nullified by a penalty.
Perry, who ran for 178 yards on 20 carries, has been offered scholarships by Ohio State, Michigan and Virginia Tech.
Potomac quarterback John Dominguez gave the Panthers a 7-2 lead in the second quarter with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Terron Williams, a California transfer playing his first game for the Panthers. Dominguez, however, was intercepted three times.
* OSBOURN PARK 34, BROAD RUN 0: In Ashburn, quarterback Frankie Hogan rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns, including a 74-yarder on a sneak, as the Yellow Jackets won their season opener.
Combined with last year's season-ending 24-22 victory over Stonewall Jackson, the Yellow Jackets have won two games in a row for the first time since 1994 (not counting four victories they had to forfeit in 1997).
Darryl Brown rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown for Osbourn Park, and Addam Jordan added 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Osbourn Park defensive back Devin McElfish had one of two interceptions of Broad Run quarterback Matt Gordy, McElfish's seventh career pickoff. Mickey Johnson had the other interception.
Hogan was playing his first game for Osbourn Park after transferring from Osbourn.
* JAMES MONROE 21, STAFFORD 10: In Fredericksburg, James Monroe scored two touchdowns in the final 7 minutes, 16 seconds to post the season-opening victory.
Down 10-8, James Monroe quarterback Chipp Corderman hit Brandon Robinson with a 21-yard scoring pass on a fourth-and-19 play. Ralph Brown's four-yard TD run five minutes later iced the game.
Dural Dawson led Stafford with 177 yards on 19 carries, including a 72-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
