Upsets shake up local football playoff picture

- After eight weeks in which there had been only a handful of kind-of, sort-of upsets in local high school varsity football, winless Osbourn stunned Stonewall Jackson 28-27 at the Eagles' homecoming in Manassas on Friday night while Potomac pulled out a surprise 34-27 overtime victory against host Woodbridge. Meanwhile, Hylton's seventh win officially made the Bulldogs playoff bound while their rival for the eastern crown Forest Park avoided a surprise defeat against Gar-Field with a one-point victory.

It's put the Bruins in position to wrap up the regular season Conference 4 title and give the girls from the eastern end of the county top billing heading into the playoffs as they attempt to finish the job the 2013 team started last year by making it to states as the regional runner-up.
