Brentsville (2-5, 0-4) at Fauquier (3-4, 2-2)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Fauquier's 28-0 shutout of James Wood last week marked the team's second consecutive victory. The Falcons have a shot to record a third this week, if they continue to distribute the ball in the same fashion that proved so fruitful against the Colonels. Senior running backs J.R. Byrd (13 carries, 85 yards last week) and Brandon Edwards (12 carries, 84 yards) and junior quarterback Zach Caito (14 carries, 83 yards) each registered a rushing touchdown last week. They did so in the absence of standout senior halfback Chris Douglas, who originally hoped to miss only two games with an injured left ankle. Douglas, however, will miss the rest of the season -- his ankle was placed in a cast for three months after doctors found ligament damage.

Broad Run (4-3, 2-2) at Dominion (3-4, 0-4)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The sting of Broad Run's 29-21 homecoming loss to Loudoun County -- its second straight defeat after starting the season 4-1 -- isn't likely to have worn off. That could mean trouble for a Dominion squad that has been outscored 155-31 by its first four AA Dulles District opponents. Look for Broad Run, led by junior tailback Thayer Nelson (970 yards, 11 touchdowns), to try to dominate with its running game. The Spartans have totaled 1,509 yards rushing this season, compared with 404 passing, and 62 percent of those passing yards have come in the last two games. Dominion (1,041 yards rushing, 854 passing) has displayed more balance but continues to struggle reaching the end zone.

Heritage (1-6, 0-4) at Potomac Falls (3-4, 2-2)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Though Heritage and Potomac Falls have had their share of troubles this season, neither team lacks for talent, particularly at the skill positions. That should make for an interesting matchup as Heritage junior quarterback Bryan Brosnan and his host of receivers -- senior Chris Hunter and juniors Chris Smith and Quinn Tibbs each has 14 or more receptions -- sets to battle a run-dominant Panthers team that, barring fumbles, has settled into its new wishbone offense. Brosnan needs nine yards to surpass 1,000 passing. Senior Darren Bailey leads Potomac Falls with 659 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns.

No. 9 Liberty (7-0, 4-0) at Warren County (5-2, 3-1)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: For the third consecutive week, the Eagles' opponent will be the newest team to take over second place in the AA Northwestern District. Liberty disposed of the first two -- Sherando and Handley -- with ease, winning by a combined 77-13. Coach Tommy Buzzo, though, is concerned about Warren County junior H.B. Banjoman and his ability to run the Warriors' single-wing offense. Banjoman has rushed for 1,404 yards and 15 touchdowns and passed for 530 yards and four more scores. That's more prolific than even Liberty senior standout Justin Carrington (1,165 yards, 16 touchdowns) has totaled. "How do you rush for 1,404 yards in just seven games?" Buzzo said. "That's unbelievable. [Handley quarterback] L.A. Anderson may be a bit more athletic, but Banjoman is the best football player we've faced."

Park View (6-1, 3-1) at Loudoun County (2-5, 2-2)

When: Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Loudoun County shocked then-third place Broad Run at the Spartans' homecoming game Saturday and is hoping to do the same to second-place Park View on the Raiders' homecoming weekend. Loudoun County will have a shot if senior quarterback Grant Jones can duplicate his near-flawless performance against the Spartans, when he completed 12 of 14 passes (86 percent) for 191 yards and three touchdowns. Jones will have to get rid of the ball quickly against a defensive front that not only rates as one of the biggest in the AA Dulles District but also has enough speed to be disruptive. Park View's offense will be tough to contain. The Patriots -- led by sophomore tailback Deric Dudinski's 1,224 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns -- are averaging 37.7 points per game, best of any league team.
