Broad Run (5-3, 3-2) at

Potomac Falls (4-4, 3-2)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Spartans senior fullback Andy Lawlor, who missed the first half of the season with a broken right foot, totaled 61 yards and three touchdowns in last week's win over Dominion. His increased presence, combined with the speed of junior tailback Thayer Nelson, could spell trouble for the Panthers. Potomac Falls's defense was burned for 183 yards last week by Heritage junior William Bray, whose previous season high was 86 yards. Despite the yards allowed, the Panthers, whose defense logged four interceptions, won to pull into a three-way tie for third place in the district with Broad Run and Loudoun Valley. The Panthers have won three of four.

Dominion (3-5, 0-5) at

No. 12 Stone Bridge (8-0, 5-0)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: This week looks to get even tougher for a Dominion team that has struggled in its first five games against Dulles District opponents. The Titans have been shut out in the first half of their last three outings and have been held to only one touchdown in four of five losses. That doesn't bode well against a Bulldogs team that is yielding 13.6 points per game, second-best in the league. Stone Bridge has proved even more potent on offense, totaling 1,496 yards passing and 1,428 yards rushing through eight games.

Fauquier (4-4, 3-2) at Sherando (6-2, 4-1)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: After struggling to a 1-4 start, the Falcons have reeled off three consecutive victories despite two weeks ago losing senior halfback Chris Douglas (ankle), whose 10 touchdowns in six games ranks among the top five in scoring in Loudoun and Fauquier counties. In its first game without Douglas, Fauquier had three runners who gained more than 80 yards each. Last week against Brentsville, the formula for success was a more balanced rush-pass attack, led by senior halfback Brandon Edwards (91 yards rushing) and junior quarterback Zach Caito (86 yards passing). This week will be tougher against a potent Sherando offense that is led by senior quarterback Jordan Gibson (994 yards passing, 8 TDs) and junior tailback Joe Oher (919 yards rushing, 11 TDs).

Loudoun County (2-6, 2-3) at

Heritage (1-7, 0-5)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Pride and Raider defenses have struggled this season, conceding 29.1 and 32 points per game, the most in the Dulles District. Both teams, though, are far improved offensively from a year ago. In fact, both have surpassed their total points scored from last season, with two games remaining. The difference at Loudoun County has been the emergence of senior quarterback Grant Jones (832 yards passing), who has spread the ball to senior wide receivers Cameron Harris (18 catches, 423 yards), Dan Scanlan (7 catches, 117 yards) and Scott Spurrier (7 catches, 102 yards). At Heritage it's been the emergence of junior quarterback Bryan Brosnan (1,043 yards passing), senior wide receiver Chris Hunter (18 catches, 362 yards) and juniors Chris Smith (17 catches, 161 yards) and Quinn Tibbs (16 catches, 203 yards).

Millbrook (2-6, 2-3) at

No. 7 Liberty (8-0, 5-0)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Eagles senior tailback Justin Carrington needed only three quarters last week at Warren County to break 100 yards and set the school's single-season rushing record. That's a good thing considering the game was called with 10 minutes 54 seconds to play in the fourth quarter because of lightning. Still, Carrington's 1,333 yards in eight games were enough to surpass previous record-holder Mike Hull, who totaled 1,320 yards in 13 outings in 2001. Carrington is 76 yards from breaking Fauquier County's single-season record of 1,408 set by the Falcons' Kevin Cash in 1989. That isn't likely to be a problem against a second-year Millbrook team that is yielding an average of 25.9 points per game and has lost three straight.
