A total of seven Loudoun varsity teams earned victories in Week 2 of the 2017 football season.

Woodgrove, John Champe, Riverside, Heritage and Broad Run each won for the second time in as many weeks, while Stone Bridge prevailed in its season opener and Dominion collected its first win of the season.

Woodgrove 42, Massaponax 14

The host Wolverines impressed on many levels in the runaway win against the Class 5A Panthers.

Woodgrove pushed its regular-season winning streak to 21 games, while handing Massaponax just its second regular-season loss since 2013.

The Wolverines (2-0) racked up 358 rushing yards, highlighted by Josh Johnson (256 yards, 2 TD) and Rick Piland (96 yards, 2 TD). Johnson tied Woodgrove's mark for the seventh most rushing yards in a single game.

Bailey Burton completed 8 of 9 pass attempts for 138 yards and two touchdowns. Ben Castellano caught seven balls for 113 yards and a score, while Cameron Beebe also hauled in a touchdown pass.

Castellano now has 18 receptions in two games. His 11-catch output in Week 1 ranks as the second most receptions in a game by a Wolverine.

Defensively, Woodgrove limited a Massaponax team that averaged more than 40 points per game last season to two touchdowns.

John Champe 35, Centreville 21

A pair of touchdown runs by Carl Garmon III in the third quarter allowed the host Knights to take the lead for good.

Playing its first season as a Class 5A school, John Champe moved to 2-0 with the impressive win over the Class 6A Wildcats (1-1).

Garmon was the workhorse for the Knights. The senior churned out 288 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 41 carries. Garmon has found the end zone nine times in two games.

Cameron Parson converted 7 of 9 passing attempts for 137 yards. Parson connected with Branden Caffrey for a 46-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Riverside 16, Freedom 10

The Rams pitched a shutout in the second half to defeat the host Eagles and earn their second victory in as many weeks to begin the 2017 season.

Riverside (2-0) scored 10 points during a 16-second span late in the third quarter to take the lead for good. A fumble recovery for a score by junior linebacker Will Becker provided the winning margin.

Jack Selman and Alex Gonzalez also provided big plays for a defensive unit that Riverside coach Brian Day says "is carrying us as a team right now."

"Our defense played great and defensive coordinator Bobby Eavenson deserves all the credit," Day added.

Brady Lipson paced the Rams' offense with 171 rushing yards and a touchdown. Punter Gavin Stone consistently provided good field position and converted his first field goal attempt of more than 30 yards.

Ryan Fisher connected with Robert Mayo for a 50-yard touchdown completion in the first quarter to give Freedom (0-2) a lead that grew to 10-6 by halftime.

Heritage 35, Rock Ridge 14

Tied 7-7 after one quarter, the Pride exploded for 28 second-quarter points to pull away from the host Phoenix. Heritage moved to 2-0 and Rock Ridge slipped to 0-2.

Alejandro Calderon and Alex Kovacs each rushed for touchdowns, while quarterback Brett Johnson connected with Tyrique Moss and Aaron Maisus on scoring passes in the second quarter.

Calderon rushed for 82 yards and two scores overall. Johnson passed for 171 yards in the win, with four receptions going to Austin Holland.

Dominion 3, Potomac Falls 0

Ramon Blas connected on a 22-yard field goal in the second quarter to allow the host Titans (1-1) to prevail in a defensive struggle with the Panthers (0-2).

Alex Wertz paced Dominion's rushing attack with 57 yards on 14 carries. Thomas Jarman passed for 57 yards, with Jadan Pierre hauling in three receptions for 43 yards.

Miles Lipscomb and Clemont Mpanya each totaled 43 yards rushing for Potomac Falls. Mpanya had a fourth-quarter rushing touchdown negated due to a penalty.
