Sterling Solid as Gold

While Dailey has carried it 226 times on the season, Sweet has carried the ball 323 times and is averaging 42.25 carries a game in the last month!
Tuscarora junior running back Noah Reimers had to sit out the first playoff week with an injury so he is at 1,628 yards rushing on the season and counting. Good for No. 12 in the D.C. area.
With Reimers out over the weekend, the Huskies running game didn’t miss a beat as senior Mali Barker stepped in the starting role and rushed for 225 yards on 30 carries and a score in the win.
Loudoun Valley’s Andrew Cordani had 943 yards rushing midway through the ninth game of the season before getting injured.
T as in touchdown for Woodgrove senior Josh Sweet who leads the D.C. area with 32 touchdowns on the season. Stone Bridge senior Sterling Dailey has 19.
Briar Woods senior quarterback Trace McSorley has thrown for 2,036 yards and 23 touchdowns on the season in his quest to lead the Falcons to a fourth straight state title. Broad Run junior Brady Reitzel has broken the 1,500-yard mark and Stone Bridge sophomore Joe Thompson is over 1,400.
Loudoun County JR quarterback Tae Crews-Naylor finished his season with 1,642 in the Raiders spread offense which made a return trip to the playoffs.
Broad Run at Stone Bridge
The Skinny: Battle of the Burn Part 2 as the Ashburn rivals square off for the first time ever in the postseason. The No. 2 seed Bulldogs had their way with the No. 7 seed Spartans in a Sept. 20 meeting at Broad Run.
Mountain View at Briar Woods
The Skinny: Don’t let the 8-3 record of the Wildcat fool you .. this team from Stafford, the No. 6 seed, is good with the three losses coming to 6A playoff team Varina, undefeated and top seed Massaponax and a North Stafford team that handed No. 3 Briar Woods its only loss on the season. North Stafford beat Briar Woods by 12 (19-7) and Mountain View by 8 (21-13) so expect a battle. Mountain View beat Potomac, 21-7, in the first round in a game that was closer than the final score as a 55-yard Pick Six in the final minutes made it a 2-score game.
North Stafford at Tuscarora
The Skinny: Some are calling the No. 5 seed Wolverines the favorite as they travel to No. 4 Tuscarora. North Stafford is 9-2 with the two losses coming to unbeaten Massaponax, just 23-17, and a surprising shutout at the hands of Colonial Forge, 12-0. The Huskies surprised a scare when Mount Vernon rallied late in the first round. Key for Tuscarora is a healthy Noah Reimers at running back so they can control the clock. In North Stafford’s 43-7 win over TJ last week, Von Purvis rushed for 232 yards and scored 4 TDs.
Woodgrove at Eastern View
The Skinny: The Wolverines, fresh off the program’s first ever playoff win, head to Culpeper to face the Cyclones. Eastern View is 10-1 on the season with the lone loss coming to Liberty on Oct. 25 (42-14). Eastern View survived a shootout with E.C. Glass in the first round, winning 35-32. The No. 3 seed Cyclones have scored 40 or more points in 5 of the 10 wins. The No. 6 seed Wolverines will once again try and ride workhorse Josh Sweet to victory. Eastern View was led in the win over Glass by Kendrick Kube with 114 yards rushing and Josh Stalling threw for 176 yards and 3 TDs on 15 of 23 passing.
Dominion at Salem
The Skinny: The Titans from Sterling are another team coming off the school’s first ever playoff win. Their reward for upsetting No. 7 seed King George on the road (35-13) is a long trip to No. 2 seed Salem. The No. 10 seed Titans will look for another manster like game from junior Chad Smith. Salem is 9-2 with back-to-back losses in Sept. to Byrd (9-2) by one points (30-29) and to 10-1 Northside (17-10). In a blowout win over Fauquier in the first round, Salem rushed for 324 total yards and four TDs … in the first half!
Hopewell at Loudoun Valley
The Skinny: The No. 2 seed Vikings cruised in the opening round over William Monroe but No. 7 seed Hopewell could be a tricky opponent. The Blue Devils at just 6-5 and the No. 7 seed but 8 of their 10 regular-season opponents were either 4A (4), 5A (3) or 6A (1). In a 29-13 win over York in the first round, Hopewell got a monster game from Tabyus Taylor who rushed for 301 yards and passed for 179 yards with four total TDs.
