The Top Ten hang on to their positions after week one
by Jim McGrath, recruitNoVA
There were no surprises in the recruitNoVA.com Top-10 last weekend, as all of the teams that played won by double digits. There will be some new contenders for the poll, and time will tell how the positions shift throughout the fall.
Outside of the top-10, Karl Buckwalter enjoyed his first win at Fauquier as the Falcons ended a 13-game losing streak by trouncing Brentsville 32-0. In Fairfax, Flint Hill won its 23rd straight game, albeit in a 9-6 nail biter over Paul VI.
Stonewall Jackson won its opener, 41-7 over Gar-Field, while Mountain View, fresh off a win over Albemarle, cruised to a 37-6 victory over Patriot, a team that ranked in the top-5 in at least one Prince William pre-season poll.
#1 Westfield 37, John Champe 14
Noah Kim threw for three touchdowns, two to Avery Howard, as the Bulldogs won easily at home.
Isaiah Daniel ran for 110 yards and a 49-yard score in the opening quarter as Westfield worked its way to a 23-7 halftime advantage. Mikal Legall added 62 yards, including an eight-yarder to finish the evening’s scoring.
Alex Richards also scored on a 33-yard strike from Kim, who has thrown for five touchdowns in the first two contests.
#2 Stone Bridge 33, Madison 19
Zakias Moore ran for three short scores, and Billy Wiles completed a pair of touchdown passes to Jared Cole, as the Bulldogs pulled away from a scrappy Madison team on the road.
#3 Freedom 47, Riverbend 0
The Eagles, who face #8 Colonial Forge this weekend, continued to fine tune their offense, rattling off 47 points against an over-matched Riverbend team.
In two games this season, the Eagles’ offense, led by quarterback Quest Powell, has scored 97 points while allowing only 14.
#4 Broad Run 51, Brooke Point 13
#5 South County 48, Hayfield 20
#6 Eastern View 63, Albemarle 7
Blake Leake scored on offense and defense as the Cyclones blew away Albemarle with ease.
Leake caught a two-yard score from Till Butler in the first quarter, and then ended the first half with an 80-yard pick-six as Eastern View opened up a 56-0 lead.
In spite of playing under a running clock for the entirety of the second half, eight Cyclones managed to score, including Alex Spangler, Chance Graves, Drew Shurina, Eli Harris, Josh Logan, Ronta Robinson and Raq Lawson.
Eastern View scored on its first five offensive possessions, on top of the two interceptions for scores, with Logan gathering the other.
#7 Lake Braddock 34, West Potomac 21
#8 Colonial Forge – idle
#9 Tuscarora 40, Potomac Falls 12
The Huskies rushed for 390 yards, part of a 617-yard outburst, and defeated the Panthers 40-12 on the road.
Bryce Duke carried 27 times for 219 yards to lead Tusky. Ethan Gick completed 19 of 23 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns while adding 142 yards with two scores on the ground. Ryan Upp caught 11 passes for 148 yards and one of the TD receptions, with Jevonn Gilyard grabbing the other.
The game was close through the first half with the Huskies carrying a 7-6 lead into halftime. But a barrage of 22 unanswered points in the final quarter helped the visitors pull away for the win.
#10 Massaponax 47, Dinwiddie 30
One week after rushing for 490 yards, the Panthers tallied 538 yards rushing, as Massaponax stunned visiting Dinwiddie by 17.
‘Ponax quarterback Luke Morley collected 305 yards with four touchdowns to lead the Panthers. Jacob Romero added 94 on four carries, while Elijah Christopher tacked on 92 with a TD.
Dinwiddie coach Billy Mills said the key for Massaponax was the triple-option formation which kept the Generals (1-1) on their toes all night.
Also in the mix – W.T. Woodson (1-0), North Stafford (2-0), Woodgrove (2-0), Episcopal (1-0), T.C. Williams (2-0), Mountain View (2-0).
