Ashburn, Va. (September 29, 2016) — Expecting consistent performances out of teenagers is like expecting politicians to fulfill their campaign promises: Sometimes, it just ain’t gonna happen.
So, frankly, we have no idea what to expect when the 3-2 Titans of Dominion High School motor down Rt. 28 to take on the Eagles of Freedom High School in VivaLoudoun’s TopTicket Of The Week. [Ed. note: The schools have announced this game will be played at Rock Ridge High School in Ashburn due to field playability considerations.]
You figure out the Titans. Their season dawned with a blowout road win, then suffered a hard-fought loss to a very good Potomac Falls team. Follow that with another blowout win, another tough loss and a surprising 14-point upset win at Loudoun Valley, and you have a Dominion squad which, on any given Friday, might shock the world or might fall just short.
Dominion has several home run threats in its offensive lineup, with the heaviest hitter being senior Vashon McCants. He’ll line up at quarterback or in the backfield, hell on wheels when running with it but unafraid to rear back and chunk it too. Speedy wideouts Jayson Robinson and George Richardson help McCants move the chains and score the points.
You figure out the Eagles. Their campaign opened with a pair of shutout wins before suffering two straight setbacks, most recently an unexpected 15-point loss to previously winless Loudoun County.
Freedom boasts plenty of offensive potential too, in junior quarterback Jack Fitzgerald delivering to big wide receiver Robert Mayo and fast Aidan Doherty.
Dominion’s gone W-L-W-L-W. Freedom’s put up W-W-L-L. Will the Titans put together two wins in a row? Or will the Eagles avoid a three-loss streak?
We have no idea. Good thing we’re taking VivaLoudoun’s TopTicket Of The Week to
South RidingRock Ridge High School to find out for ourselves. Find out along with us as we live-tweet the Eagles and Titans on Twitter @VivaLoudoun.
