Leesburg, VA (January 20, 2017) – Although their last game had been a surprising loss to Park View, the Loudoun County Raiders entered the game with a sterling 15-2 record. The team with the next best record in Loudoun County? The Freedom Eagles. Tonight looked to be a showdown between the two teams on Freedom’s home court.
Chas Sumser, Viva Loudoun photographer, was there to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the game.
After one quarter there wasn’t much difference between the two teams. In a very physical start both teams scratched and clawed their way to an 8-8 tie. From that point on, however, the Raiders took full control. Although the Eagles managed to trim the lead to five in the fourth quarter, Loudoun County stayed calm and held on for the win, 46-35.
