The two teams everyone wanted to see on the same field with one another all year. They will be together today, December 7, in week 14 of the 2019 season. Matty Ice leads the offense of the South County team into Chantilly Virginia to play the Bulldogs on the road. He will face a mighty stout defense led by Richie Aguilar, Caleb Wheatland, E.T. Bushra, Ryan Moses, C. J. Hoffman, Jake Bendorf, Tahj Summey, Michaia Green, David Lee, Elijah Tarlton, Trent Reimonenq, and Isaiah Mclain. Leading the Bulldogs offense is Michigan State Spartan bound Noah Kim who is looking for his second state title in three years. He has just won his 3rd straight and Westfields, 5th straight Region Title. He will face a relentless defensive front 7 in Haris Kahn, Zion Dayne, Dorian Mitchell, Dayshawn Coleman, Tyler Simms, Max Rocke and Akibu Komara .
The Westfield Bulldogs came within one game of winning 4 straight State Championships a year ago.
That would have been a second straight title for then, Junior Quarterback Noah Kim. However, Noah, the leader of perhaps the best team in the state, broke his leg in the second quarter.
The Bulldogs fell short in the end as Noah watched from his hospital room.
This year Coach Eric Simmons set a vision for Noah to steadily work back to where he left off last year. Taking it week by week, the Bulldogs have dismantled every team on their schedule and today they came into the Northern Region Championship game to face a Yorktown Patriots team that was big, physical, fast and had a very talented quarterback of their own.
Noah threw three first half touchdowns to lead his Bulldogs to a 21 to 7 lead at the break, over Grant Wilson and the Yorktown Patriots.
In the end Noah Kim put together 28 offensive points and the Bulldogs added another special teams touchdown as Westfield knocked Yorktown out of the Playoffs for the second year in a row. Now, Noah, is heading back to the State Semi-final game where he broke his leg a year before. This time, the Bullldogs will face one of their notorious non-conference rivals, the South County Stallions. When these two teams get together there is a lot of hitting and a ton of big plays.
They will play at Westfield High School next weekend. Both teams are 13 -0 and both defenses have yielded only two touchdowns in three playoff games in 2019.
Dayshawn Coleman has been telling us all season long to stay tuned!
Well today, he, Zion Dayne, Haris Kahn, Akibu Koroma, Tyler Simms, and Dorian Mitchell took turns sacking the quarterback.
Literally, they stuffed the Q repeatedly today and shut down a Bruin offense again that has a very talented Quarterback, running back and two very good receivers including an ESPN300 Tight End in Matt Hibner.
The Stallions came into Friday nights Region Semi-Final 11-0 facing the T.C. Williams Titans. There was a whole bunch of trash tweeting going on between the two schools and it spilled onto the field. This was a very physical game and there are no doubt some bodies that need healing this morning. Almost each play, the gang tackling from both defenses was just ruthless. But, SOCO has a high powered offense that was able to put up 34 points to match their proud Defense keeping the Titans off the scoreboard.
This is SOCO's 2nd straight shut out. They have not been scored on in the 2019 playoffs and they have only given up 62 points in their last 7 games. That's an average of 8.8 pts. per game. You throw in the rest of the season, they've given up only 8.9 pts. per game. 107 points all season long. They have registered four shutouts.

James Madison's varsity football team in Vienna Virginia has developed in to one of the most dominant physical teams in Northern Virginia. They came into Friday nights playoff opener as a 2 seed in the Virginia 6A Region D bracket due to power points, even tho, they held a 7-3 record.
Tonight, Madison dominated the Centreville Wildcats from the opening kick. The Defense notched a shut-out and the offense drove all over the field, winning 34 to nothing Friday. Madison will play Yorktown this coming week, hoping to get back to the Region final and win. That was one of the goals Coach Justin Counts set for his team this year. The Warhawks played Westfield in the Region final in 2018, last November and fell short , losing to Westfield 17-7.
The Marshall Statesmen played an unbelievable game coming into Yorktown and playing the 9-1 Patriots til the last few minutes of the game. Down 21-0 at the half, Marshall, scored 23 second half points including 16 in the fourth quarter. But Yorktown holds on 28 -23 to move on to the second round of the Virginia 6A state football playoffs. Next Friday night they will face the Madison Warhawks who tho, 7-3 are seeded above Yorktown due to power points.
The SOCO Stallions came into Burke on Friday night 9-0 and looking for a Patriot District/Conference Championship and Home field Advantage in the playoffs. Their cross town foes at Lake Braddock had beaten the Stallions 10 times in the 13 years they've played one another. But, this years team has about as much talent as there is in the Northern Region. They've got a seasoned quarterback with confidence, speed, an accurate, strong arm and plenty of weapons to spread the ball around to. The Stallions Defense is killer and according to Defensive End Haris Khan, they love to cause Havoc!! Check out More Deetz
Freedom was not a very good football team, PERIOD! From the time the school started playing varsity football in 2005, til 2015, the Eagles won 8 times on their home field. They lost 43 games in that time. In 2015, Darryl Overton Sr. was hired as the Varsity Head Football Coach. In his second year the Eagles went 10-0 in the regular season and played in the first playoff game in school history. The next year they won 13 games and last year they did what no team in 6A football has done since September of 2015. Beat Westfield. Further than that, they did what NO high school team anywhere has done since December of 2014. Knock the Bulldogs out of the playoffs. Freedom interrupted what would have been the Bulldogs 4th straight State Championship a year ago. More Impressive still, in the four years since 2015, Freedom has lost only one game at home.. They have now won 19 straight games at home, and it's been over three years since they have lost on their home field. September 14, 2016 was the last time. They have played in a State title game in Overton's fourth year as Head Coach. Many coaches never make it to that game. Each year, they have outdone the year before. Friday night Freedom hosted the Garfield Indians and they put up a lot of points. Are they the best team in Virginia? We'll find out in just a couple of weeks as the road to Glory begins with the Virginia High School playoffs. t this great video
Ry Yates led a powerful Madison Warhawk Football team that just throttled Chantilly (6-0 going into the game) for 4 quarters straight. Ry threw 2 touchdown passes (8 Yards, Colin Tuft,) and (7 Yards, Cole Remy) both in the first quarter. He passed for 124 yards completing 11 of 22 passes on the night. Alex Jreige rushed for 74 yards on the night and Brendan Wyka had 21 yards. That was enough as Alex Jreige scored a rushing touchdown in the fourth and Ry Yates scored one on the ground in the second. Madison finished off the Chargers 31 to 7 in Coach Sean Curry's first loss of 2019. This was the first time I got to see James Pogorelc in person. He is more athletic than most linemen and has the potential to be great. He had one pancake block last night that I noticed. I only saw two plays where the defender he was blocking got close to the ball. But, the problem for Chantilly last night was that Madison had 10 more players on the field.
Matthew Dzierski aka Matty Ice led the South county Stallions to a 44 nothing win over Woodson last night. The Senior has 19 touchdowns in the first 6 games of 2019. He's got some interest from college scouts and he's leaning toward one school in particular, but the biggies better start paying attention.
Coach Brian Magaha says, he's not a huge player but he's got a huge heart and he makes big plays. Matty Ice took over the starting job as a sophomore during the West Springfield game in 2017, when "Drake", (Michael Tull) came out of the game with a migraine at halftime. The Stallions trailed the Spartans and looked lethargic in the first half.
Matty Ice led them to three second half touchdowns to start off the 3rd quarter and SOCO never looked back. Matty became the starter and has led the Stallion offense ever since. SOCO's opponent winning percentage is 42% in 2019 which is the second highest among undefeated teams in Northern Virginia. Westfield has played the schedule with the highest winning percentage among opponents of undefeated teams.
