Carrington Tops Last Year
Liberty senior running back Justin Carrington carved up Handley's defense with 192 rushing yards on 20 carries in the Eagles' 42-6 victory.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound halfback now has 1,161 rushing yards on the season, topping his 2003 total of 1,131.
"I really didn't set any personal goals [for this season] besides 14-0 and a state ring," Carrington said. "One thousand yards is pretty good I guess."
Carrington, who has committed to Indiana University, failed to score a touchdown for the first time this season (he has 14 rushing touchdowns through seven games). After Friday's performance, he is averaging 9.4 yards per carry.
Dudinski Runs Wild
Deric Dudinski ran for 150 yards on 26 carries to lift Park View past visiting Heritage, 38-7, Friday night.
The Patriots got going early thanks to the arm of Steve Blakenship, who capped a scoring drive in the first quarter on a four-yard pass to Reggie James. After a 36-yard field goal by Eric Lefebrve, the Patriots got a one-yard touchdown run by Travis Huff.
James came back with a two-yard scoring run, and Kerry Dudley added a 42-yard touchdown run to all but seal the outcome.
James finished with 82 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 14 carries.
A Quarter Short
Potomac Falls senior tailback Darren Bailey led all rushers with a game-high 109 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries despite playing just three quarters. Bailey and junior fullback Cameron Minor were both benched in the first quarter by Coach Casey Childs for an unexcused absence from Thursday's practice.
With those two forced to sit and senior Chris Jaegger sidelined with an injured ankle, the Panthers turned to junior Jay Branom and senior Bernard Brown to carry the offensive load in the first quarter. Branom had 19 yards rushing on five carries in the first quarter, and Brown added three carries for one yard.
"We played hard, but this program needs to get to the point, if it wants to compete with teams like Stone Bridge, where we're playing all four quarters," Panthers Coach Casey Childs said. "We were missing our entire backfield in that first quarter, and that slowed us down."
Heritage was left searching for its first win in the AA Dulles District after a disappointing loss to Park View. Quarterback Brian Brosnan finished with minus-26 yards on 15 carries, and running back William Bray finished with six yards on eight attempts.
