Bobcats, Tigers, Eagles, Bulldogs, Pioneers, Raiders win in Week 1
© Culpeper TimesDuring the first week of the varsity football regular season, Battlefield, Freedom, Hylton and Patriot all pulled out decisive wins while Patriot, Stonewall and Brentsville District edged out their opponents in much closer games.
The most electrifying game of the week went to Patriot-Forest Park. The 104-point affair wasn't settled until overtime after Forest Park stormed back to tie the game in the fourth quarter.
Stonewall and Potomac also battled in a close game decided in the fourth quarter once the Raiders pulled ahead for good.
Meanwhile, the feel-good story of the week goes to Brentsville District, which snapped a 39-game losing streak to defeat host Manassas Park 12-7. Less known is that that's only the team's second win in five years; the Tigers lost 49 out of 50 games between 2009-2013.
Freedom and Hylton shut out their Manassas opponents Osbourn Park and Osbourn respectively and Battlefield knocked out Woodbridge by 24 points in Haymarket. Gar-Field had the week off.
