Teams: Oakton at Lake Braddock
Kickoff: Saturday, 7 p.m.
Analysis: Undefeated Lake Braddock (2-0) looks to knock off its second ranked opponent. In their opener, the Bruins beat then-No. 5 Centreville, 15-12, when running back Ryan Neff scored on a four-yard touchdown run with 51 seconds remaining. "We always work on the two-minute situations and we're always pretty good at it," Lake Braddock Coach Francis Dall said. No. 18 Oakton (1-1) is looking to rebound from a 16-7 loss Monday at Robinson. In that game, the Cougars missed injured starting defensive tackles Spencer Maestas (6 feet 3, 240 pounds) and Brian Saleeba (5-10, 195). Both are doubtful for tonight. "We've got to stop the run," Oakton Coach Pete Bendorf said.
By the numbers: In Oakton's loss to Robinson, the Cougars were outscored 16-0 in the second quarter, and shut out over the final three quarters. Lake Braddock sophomore quarterback B.J. Quigley has passed 38 times in two games, completing 17 for 289 yards, one touchdown and one interception. "We try to have as much balance as we can," Dall said. "[Quigley] throws pretty well and is just going to get better."
Notable: The game is a rematch of last year's AAA Northern Region Division 6 semifinal, in which Oakton eliminated Lake Braddock, 22-0. Originally scheduled for tonight, rain from Hurricane Floyd pushed kickoff back a day.
