South Riding, VA (May 31, 2016) – You don’t get to be the two-time defending state champion for nothing, and the Woodgrove Wolverines carried their banners high into this 4A West Regional match. Waiting for them were the undefeated Freedom Eagles, on a bit of a championship high of their own. Chas Sumser was there to cover the action and posted a gallery of 117 images.
Final Score: Woodgrove 13 – Freedom 8
Although the Eagles would battle throughout the match, this game was essentially decided in the first five minutes as the Wolverines built a quick and powerful 4-0 lead. Throughout the first half, Freedom struggled to control the face-off, and Woodgrove took full advantage extending their lead to 8-3 at halftime.
Freedom’s second half was much more cohesive. At one point, they cut the Woodgrove lead to just three, but the Wolverines built it right back up and then went into an impressive and controlled slow-down game to run time out and send the visitors on to the regional final.
