Broad Run runs past rival Briar Woods

Broad Run needed a response. After scoring its second touchdown of the second half, Briar Woods trailed by just eight with plenty of time for another if it could get a stop on defense. Fortunately for the host Spartans, there was little doubt that they would get it and possibly even less about who would be responsible for it. Senior Meech Hembry scored on a 20-yard run with 3:05 left to give Broad Run the insurance touchdown it needed in a 36-21 win over crosstown rival Briar Woods on Friday night.

After struggling to contain the speed and elusiveness of Dominion quarterback Vashon McCants in the first half, Woodgrove found the defensive cohesion necessary to shut out the Titans in the second half and remain undefeated.

Siler, Centreville pass Broad Run’s test

What a difference a year makes. It was only last September when Broad Run running back Meech Hembry and his offensive teammates stormed into Centreville's back yard and scorched them for 253 yards rushing and five touchdowns in a 56-21 rout. This time, it was the Wildcats turn as they came to Ashburn to repay the favor, rallying for a hard-fought 21-9 victory over the host Spartans.

John Champe stands strong, hands Loudoun Valley its first loss

If John Champe has some growing up to do, it likely aged well late Friday night. Facing a previously unbeaten Loudoun Valley team on the road, the youthful Knights held tight in the fourth quarter to help preserve a 17-14 victory in Purcellville. In the game’s final quarter, the Knights (2-1) limited the Vikings (3-1) to a punt, interception, turnover on downs and a desperation heave to end the game.
