Broad Run (0-7) at Loudoun County (2-5)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Things started rough for Broad Run and haven't become any easier. The Spartans did get a season-high 197 yards from senior RB Thayer Nelson last week, his fifth game with more than 100 yards rushing, but the team continues to struggle defensively. Broad Run is yielding an area-worst 36.4 points per game. That should be welcome news to Loudoun County RBs Danny Slack and Billy Sweeney, who have combined for one touchdown the past two weeks in losing to Dominion and Potomac Falls.

Fauquier (3-4)

At Stonewall Jackson (3-4)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Fauquier's players and coaches were reeling after last week's 14-13 loss to Osbourn Park, a game they felt they had in hand throughout. But a late fumble by the Falcons was returned for a touchdown, preventing Fauquier from registering its third consecutive win. The Falcons, led by QB Zac Caito, will have to rebound in a hurry against a young Stonewall Jackson team that appears to be improving as the season progresses.

Heritage (4-3) at Dominion (3-4)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Heritage needs help from Park View to remain in the hunt for a playoff berth, but the Pride can stay on track for its first winning season on its own. Senior QB Bryan Brosnan (1,025 yards passing, 12 TDs) continues to shine, as does the team's bevy of skill-position players, including WRs Jason Cadwell and Quinn Tibbs and RBs Matt Lucas and Chris Smith. Dominion has its sights set on an above-.500 finish, which also would be a first in the school's brief history. To do so the Titans need to find their way into the end zone: Dominion has totaled 95 points this season, fewest in the Dulles District.

Stone Bridge (6-1) at W.T. Woodson (2-5)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Stone Bridge is leading the AAA Liberty District race with three games remaining -- against last-place Woodson, Marshall (5-2) and South Lakes (2-5). This should be the easiest of those as the Bulldogs take on a Cavaliers team that has been outscored 238-98 this season. Woodson, led by senior QB Jeff Beyer, has managed 1,142 yards of total offense this season; Stone Bridge, led by junior QB Terrence Glenn, has 2,127 total yards.

Warren County (5-2) at Liberty (5-2)

When: Tomorrow, 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: It has been a rough two weeks for Liberty, which lost its first AA Northwestern District games in three years and the first time consecutively in more than five seasons. It won't get any easier this week as the Eagles try to contain Wildcats senior RB H.B. Banjoman, one of the most prolific running backs in state history. Banjoman leads the Washington area with 1,960 yards rushing and 16 TDs and, with three games remaining, stands 633 yards shy of breaking West Springfield RB Damone Boone's 10-game Virginia High School League all-time rushing record of 2,592 yards. Banjoman has rushed for at least 300 yards in his last three games but has not faced a rush defense as stout as Liberty's. The Eagles have allowed only two teams to gain more than 100 yards rushing, and no team more than 153 total yards.


Broad Run senior Thayer Nelson has five games with more than 100 yards rushing this year.
