No. 15 Centreville at No. 5 Westfield
Outlook: Widely considered the AAA Northern Region's fiercest neighborhood rivalry, two of the area's top offenses meet in a game that could significantly affect the Division 6 playoff picture. The Wildcats (4-1, 0-0 Concorde District) offense (119 points past three games) will rely on QB Drew Dudzik (924 yards passing, 15 TDs), WR Cameron Dohse (21 receptions, 8 TDs) and Westfield transfer RB D.J. Thornton (682 yards rushing). The Bulldogs (5-0, 0-0) and their 19-game winning streak counter with RB Evan Royster (1,163 yards rushing, 17 TDs).
at No. 4 Robinson
Outlook: The Hornets (5-0, 0-0 Concorde) face their first true test in the Rams (5-0, 2-0 Patriot), who are going for their third straight undefeated regular season. Herndon RB Solomon Hedd-Williams and FB Marcus Blaha must establish the running game against a Robinson defense, led by DB Matt Mikrut (5 INTs) and LB Jack Curtis, that has allowed three first half points. The Rams have won the past three meetings by an average of 25 points.
Outlook: In a tight AAA National District race, a single loss might cost a team the league championship and a spot in the Division 5 playoffs. Jefferson (4-1, 2-0) has won two in a row behind key contributions from WR-DB Shane Warren (13 receptions, 3 TDs) and WR-DB Will Averill (368 yards receiving, 5 TDs). The Patriots (4-1, 2-0) have won three straight thanks to QB Kerby Long, RB Max Milien and DB Brian Veith
at W.T. Woodson
Outlook: After being shutout by Oakton in the season opener, Madison (4-1, 2-0 Liberty) has rolled to four consecutive victories and is poised to qualify for the Division 5 playoffs for a fourth straight year. The Warhawks defense, led by DEs Drew Gully and Johnny Harrison, has yielded an average of 8.5 points the past four games. Woodson (4-1, 1-1) suffered its first defeat last week, 20-16, to Lee.
at Stonewall Jackson
Outlook: Stonewall Jackson (4-1, 2-0 Cedar Run District), two years removed from a winless season, is amid its first four-game winning streak since 1996, thanks in part to a blocked extra point that preserved a 35-34 overtime win against Osbourn last week. Operating behind a veteran offensive line that has helped the team score 118 points the past four outings, Stonewall boasts two effective rushers -- senior Chris Garrett (509 yards) and freshman Ryan Williams (422 yards). Junior quarterback Ricky Milbourne has thrown for 760 yards. Tonight's game is the first of two in the next five weeks against Potomac (3-2, 1-1).
