Edison offense

Edison, seen here in Week 1 against Mount Vernon, won its first game Friday night against McLean.

It was a clean sweep for the Richmond Highway-area football teams on Friday night, as Edison, Hayfield, Mount Vernon and West Potomac were all victorious. 

For Edison, it marked the Eagles’ first win of the 2017 season. Edison (1-2) played probably two of the toughest teams on their schedule in the first two weeks of the season, and came away 19-7 winners against McLean (0-3).

Brandon Alliata and Adam Abu-Jamous had receiving touchdowns for the Eagles.

West Potomac bounced back from its loss of the year with victory at Chantilly. The Wolverines, who fell to Madison at home last week, improve to 3-1 on the season. 

West Potomac broke open a 14-14 halftime tie with a 21-point third quarter performance that put them up 35-14. The Wolverines held on to win 35-24.

The trek to Chantilly (0-3) was the second long road trip of the season for the Wolverines, who beat Briar Woods in Ashburn in Week 1. 

Hayfield stayed perfect on the season, beating Fairfax 30-24 on the road. Senior wide receiver Brian Cobbs had three touchdowns to lead the Hawks (3-0) over the Rebels (2-2). 

Mount Vernon had 52 points by halftime en route to a 79-27 blowout win at Washington-Lee on Friday night. The victory improves the Majors’ record to 4-0 for the first time since 1986, according to head coach Monty Fritts.

Mount Vernon actually trailed late in the first quarter until a 98-yard kickoff return by senior Darrien Newton put them ahead 24-21. The Majors led the rest of the way, exploding for 28 second-quarter points.

Sophomore running back Jordyn Reid ran for three touchdowns for the Majors, while quarterback Timothy Heltzel passed for two touchdowns to senior wide receiver Damien Burke. Heltzel also rushed for a score. 

It’s the second win this season that seen Mount Vernon hit the 70-point milestone; the Majors did it first in week 1 against Edison.
