Park View 14, Loudoun County 0
The impact of junior running back Prince Lee's return from a right shoulder injury was dynamic -- especially for two plays that produced all the points Park View would need at Loudoun County.
Lee, who had missed the past three games for Park View (9-1, 5-0), ran in a 19-yard touchdown with 2 minutes 13 seconds left in the first quarter. He had carried the ball on five of the seven plays as the No. 18 Patriots moved the ball down the field 54 yards.
On the next offensive play for Park View, Lee lined up at tailback and, with the Loudoun County defense focused on him, proved the perfect decoy as fullback Ike York raced 67 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead. Lee finished with 123 yards on 27 carries.
Loudoun County (6-4, 2-3) was limited to just 47 rushing yards. The Raiders were inside the Park View 20-yard line only once -- after a blocked punt. That drive ended with a fumble.
Stone Bridge 42, Potomac Falls 35
Playing from behind for the first time all night, Stone Bridge junior Landon Gouveia scored two short touchdowns to rally the Bulldogs to a playoff-clinching 42-35 victory in Sterling.
After Gouveia scored from three yards out to tie the game at 35, the Stone Bridge defense stopped Potomac Falls on three plays and then foiled a makeshift fake punt attempt by the Panthers to take over at the Potomac Falls 9-yard line with 2:32 left.
"I had a feeling there might have been a fake," said Travis Wiley, who made the tackle. "The jets just turned on full speed ahead. . . . I knew our offense would pull it out for us. They are as good as any offense."
Two plays later, Gouveia scored on a five-yard run for the final score.
Fauquier 47, Sherando 13
Four Falcons combined to rush for five first-half touchdowns and the defense recovered five first-half fumbles in Fauquier's 47-13 victory over visiting Sherando in a AA Northwestern District game.
With the win, Fauquier (6-4, 4-1 district) qualified for the Division 4 playoffs. Sherando finished the season 4-6.
Junior Dwayne Foddrell rushed for 90 yards and two touchdowns but did not play after the first quarter because he fell ill. Senior quarterback Andrew Wilson had 11 carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns, and seniors Charles Jenkins and Jonathan Bolden each ran for touchdowns.
Junior linebacker David Rawlings tackled Sherando running back Greg Mathes in the end zone for a safety in the second quarter to give Fauquier a 26-7 lead. Later in the quarter, he forced and recovered the Warriors' fifth first-half fumble.
