NORTHERN VIRGINIA (WDVM) — Week 9 of high school football is in the books! Plenty of storylines as we are three weeks away from playoffs.
Lake Braddock at Fairfax
The Lions came into Week 9 undefeated, but with their toughest test to date. Lake Braddock was looking to put last week’s second half collapse in the rear view mirror, however Fairfax jumped out to a lead in the first half. The Bruins would stay poised, handing Fairfax their first loss of the season 34-27.
South Lakes at Centreville
The Wildcats were the favorites in this one, and by a wide margin. However, South Lakes came to play! After being tied at 7 at the half, the Seahawks took the lead in the second half. Unfortunately, they could not hold on to it late, as Centreville wins 27-13. Both teams are now 2-1 in Concorde District play.
Madison at Westfield
Over in Chantilly, the Madison Warhawks paid a visit to Westfield in what is usually a very entertaining matchup. This year, however, it wasn’t. The Warhawks looked like they were out to prove something, as they shut out the Bulldogs 34-0. Madison has now won seven straight games and is 3-0 in district play. Westfield falls to 4-4 and is 1-2 in the Concorde.
Oakton at Chantilly
Coming into Friday, Oakton and Chantilly were both winless in district play. The Cougars haven’t won a district game since 2017, and their losing streak would not come to an end tonight. Chantilly led 21-0 late before a Nick Toole touchdown pass put the Cougars on the board. Chantilly wins 21-7 and moves to 5-3 on the season. Oakton loses their fourth straight game after starting the season 4-0.
