When: 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Records: Fauquier (7-3); Park View (9-1).
Outlook: Not only does Fauquier have to go to Sterling, but the Falcons also have to defeat Park View there for the second time this season. Fauquier's 14-10 victory Sept. 20 was Park View's first regular-season home loss in nearly five years. "Anytime you beat a team, you have to be careful if you play them again," Fauquier senior defensive back Josh Campbell said. Park View felt a bit invincible after defeating four-time defending Maryland champion Urbana the week before. "We know what we did last time; we underestimated them," Park View junior linebacker T.J. Disney said. "[If] we do that again, and it'll be an early end to the season for us."
Key Matchup: Fauquier QB-RB Dwayne Foddrell vs. Park View CB Ike York. In these teams' first meeting, Foddrell made his season debut after a bout with mononucleosis. Park View can expect his condition to be much improved from that date, even though Foddrell missed the last three quarters of Fauquier's 47-19 victory over Sherando last week. York and the rest of the secondary and outside linebackers will be responsible for closing off Foddrell's path to the outside.
