Hylton senior defensive back Delondre Simpson returned two interceptions for touchdowns last night to highlight No. 2 Hylton's 23rd straight victory, 31-9, over visiting Oakton.
Simpson had a 45-yard return in the second quarter and a 95-yarder in the fourth quarter. The 95-yard return came on a fourth-down play by the Cougars, who failed on four fourth-down attempts in the game.
Quarterback Tom Ridley rushed 24 times for 99 yards for Oakton (3-4), which moved the ball well in the second half. The Cougars had 13 of their 16 first downs after intermission, but were done in by 100 yards in penalties and the fourth-down failures.
Oakton's four losses all have come against ranked teams.
Hylton (7-0) hosts Gar-Field next Friday in a key Cardinal District matchup. Gar-Field entered last night's game at Stonewall Jackson as the only other undefeated team in the district.
