A wild Monday night of prep football ... starting with something that hasn't happened in eight seasons, the Stone Bridge High School football game dropped a district game!
James Madison became the first ever AAA Liberty District team to defeat the Bulldogs, winning 28-14 in Ashburn, to break a SB 34-game winning streak against Liberty foes and a streak of 49 straight district wins between the Liberty and Dulles districts.
Stone Bridge's last loss to a district opponent was Oct. 19, 2002 to Park View, when the majority of Stone Bridge's starters Monday night were in fourth grade.
Madison did it with incredible field position, the Warhawks had touchdown "drives" of 20, 16 and 26 yards in the game thanks to special teams problems for the Bulldogs including a blocked punt and two punt returns deep into its end. Stone Bridge countered with two long Kyle Gouveia touchdown plays, a 37-yarder to Taylor Lambke with 12.4 seconds left in the first half to cut into a 14-0 deficit and then a 57-yard catch and run to Stan Johnson after Madison had gone up 21-7 at the start of the final quarter.
The Warhawks earned the historic win with a 15-play drive that was aided by a pass interference call and a deflected pass inside the 10 that was almost intercepted by SB.
Briar Woods 14, Potomac Falls 7: Zach Hobby put PF ahead 7-0 early with a TD pass to Tarrell Owens but BW tied it on a 18-yard Michael Brownlee TD run in the second quarter and Brownlee accounted for the winning score in the second half with a 49-yard TD pass to Kyle Haufler. Brownlee finished with 164 yards rushing on 31 attempts.
Loudoun County 22, Dominion 16: DeAndre Reaves long TD runs, of 70 and 80 yards, had the Titans up in the second half, 16-7, but LC fought back with Mike Howard scoring on a 9-yard run and Kevin Fitts, scoring his second rushing TD, an 18-yarder for the win.
