First and 10 for Old Mill
On the first play of a drive late in the second quarter, Old Mill took command against Arundel. Patriots quarterback Kelian Stevens hit wide receiver Steve Holmes on a post route, and Holmes went 51 yards for a score. That gave Old Mill a two-touchdown lead in what turned out to be a 19-7 win.
Second and seven for James Monroe
At the York 48-yard line, Yellow Jackets quarterback Delano Green threw a screen pass to the left to P.J. Hayden. The receiver danced around a few defenders, then sprinted right for a 52-yard touchdown. The score gave James Monroe a seven-point lead in the third quarter, and the Yellow Jackets went on to win, 54-41.
Third and nine for Turner Ashby
Trailing Handley 21-16 with less than three minutes to play, Knights quarterback Seth Little lobbed a pass down the middle toward wide out Jamie Webb, but the ball was under-thrown. A Handley defender appeared to be in position for a game-saving interception, but the ball slipped through his hands and into Webb's. Webb caught the ball at the goal line and scored. His touchdown capped a 22-point fourth quarter in Turner Ashby's 22-21 win.
Third and anything for Oakton
In the second half of a 42-24 win over Westfield, Oakton converted all eight of its third downs. Running back Keith Payne took care of seven of those by himself, running for 99 yards and two touchdowns on those seven plays.
Fourth and two for Stone Bridge
Needing two yards for a first down and 10 inches more for a touchdown, Shamar Knight-Justice took a handoff late in the fourth quarter against Edison. The running back went down short of the end zone -- but beyond the first-down marker. He scored on the next play, and Stone Bridge converted the go-ahead, two-point conversion in a 29-21 win.
