Aldie (Sept. 13, 2013) – Senior Andrew Bushrod broke off a second-half 70-yard touchdown run and sophomore William Nichols kicked a field goal in overtime to help John Champe High School win its first game in school history, as the 3A Knights knocked off 5A Potomac Falls, 10-7, in overtime Thursday.
Champe evened its record on the season at 1-1 after going 0-10 in the school’s first season with no seniors.
In overtime, Champe went first and went up by three points on Nichols clutch kick.
The Knights threw the Panthers for a 6-yard loss on their first snap of OT after a bad snap. A tipped pass brought up third down and then an incomplete pass in the end zone sent the Panthers field goal kicker out to try and send it into double overtime. The Knights and their fans could celebrate their first ever win after the Panthers kick hit off the lower part of the crossbar.
Potomac Falls (2-1) sent the game into overtime after junior Ryan Tibbs scored with 3:46 left and the PAT tied it up at 7-7.
Champe out-gained Potomac Falls in the win, 202 to 141 total yards. Bushrod had 103 yards on 12 carries.
The Knights defense was stingy, holding the Panthers to just 1 for 10 on third down and 0 for 2 on fourth down attempts.
