Osbourn football shocks No. Hylton, 23-13

To hear Osbourn Coach Sonny Hagy describe it, Friday’s stunning 23-13 upset of the No. 2 Hylton in Manassas was special in ways more than the expected.

The Eagles (3-1) was opportunistic and offensive, careful and calibrated. But to beat Hylton (2-1), Osbourn needed something different.

Enter Ryan Beverly. The special-teams extraordinaire was 3 for 3 on field goals, including a 47-yarder that put Osbourn up 13-0 in the second quarter, and boomed six punts for an average of 44.6 yards.

“Beverly,” Hagy said, “did a wonderful job.”

The Eagles, who lost to Mountain View, 39-7, two weeks ago, also leaned on Trayvon Wallace, who had a one-yard touchdown run, and quarterback Conner Lane, who scored on a three-yard rush for a 20-7 lead.

Hylton closed to within seven in the third quarter after a long touchdown pass, but Beverly and a defense Hagy described as “small, but pretty gutsy” kept the league’s front-runner playing catch-up.

“The kids believed in themselves. That’s a big part of it,” Hagy said. “We’re pleased with them.”
