●NORTH POINT KNOCKS OFF No. 3 FRIENDSHIP COLLEGIATE:
The third-ranked Knights gave up an 80-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and things didn’t get much better. North Point junior running back Marquel Dickerson rushed 18 times for 214 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone.
Friendship Collegiate trailed 20-0 at halftime, and attempted to mount a comeback in the second half.
Running back Jonathan Haden had two second-half touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough as North Point held on, 27-18.

●NORTHWEST CRUSHES EINSTEIN: Tyler Ambush ran for 113 yards and three touchdowns and Ryan Markush added three scores of his own as the Jaguars routed the Titans, 42-14, in Germantown.
With senior quarterback Matty Callahan sitting out with a sprained ankle, Northwest (6-2) didn’t miss a beat. Markush returned a punt return 73 yards for a touchdown early in the first quarter, and Ambush added touchdown runs on the Jaguars first two offensive possessions.
Ambush added a dazzling 40 yard touchdown run in the second quarter to put Einstein (4-4) away.
Northwest’s Josh Gills threw for 163 yards in place of Callahan — which included two touchdown passes to Markush, who finished with 95 yards receiving.
Einstein’s Khalil Wilson, who entered the night as one of Montgomery County’s leading rushers, was held to 42 yards on 16 carries.

●HYLTON BEATS WOODBRIDGE: Bulldogs junior Lawrence Hunt returned a kickoff 67 yards for a touchdown 10 seconds after Woodbridge had taken a one-point lead in the final minute Friday night, stunning the Vikings and lifting No. 11 Hylton to a 20-15 home win in a game with Virginia AAA Cardinal District championship implications.
Woodbridge (5-3, 3-2) had surged ahead on a 20-yard field goal with 48 seconds left. Hunt scooped up the ensuing kickoff and motored for a touchdown.
An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Hylton (7-1, 4-0) gave Woodbridge possession at the 40-yard line, and the Vikings completed a pass to the Bulldogs 43 with 13 seconds left. Hunt picked off a pass deep downfield on the final play of the game.
The last four games in the teams' series have been determined by a touchdown or less.
●MADISON RALLIES TO WIN: Grant Hofman ran for a three-yard touchdown with 3:38 remaining to take a decisive 28-21 lead over Fairfax. The Rebels had leads of 14-0 and 21-7 in the first half. We’ll have a game story and photo gallery later tonight.
