Foxes varsity defeats Caroline, pushes towards playoffs

Life in the Battlefield District is about to become interesting! After defeating district rival Caroline 41-21, the Foxes varsity football team has improved their chances of a post-season berth. However, with two weeks left in the season, the race for the play-offs could become problematic for other teams within the district.


Currently, the Foxes (4-2, 6-2) are in second place, a game behind second place Chancellor (4-1, 6-2). As for the Cavaliers (2-3, 3-5), they have fallen to sixth place. Courtland and Eastern View are tied for fourth place at 4-3, 4-4.
With the uncertainty of the upcoming Regional playoff team brackets, the Foxes are content with the focus on winning the remainder of their games. “As for the play-offs, if we win out, we could probably get a bye in the first round—if not, we play at home,” King George High School varsity head coach Jeff Smith said. “Either way, we’re in a great position, but we have to keep getting better.”
On Friday night, the atmosphere at King George High School stadium bordered on surrealism, as the playoff fate of both teams hung in the balance.
In spite of a promising opening drive that featured 15 plays (44 yards), the Cavaliers were shut down by the Foxes, and forced to punt.
After a four-yard punt, the Foxes capitalized on field position with a 14-yard drive that ended with a two-yard touchdown by Jordan Estes.
On the ensuing Cavalier possession, with less than three minutes left in the first quarter, defensive back, Xavier James intercepted a pass, giving the Foxes the ball on their 42-yard line. The drive ultimately resulted in a 35-yard field missed field goal.
In the second quarter, at 9:35, the Cavaliers tied the game at 7-7 after converting a Fox fumbled punt into a one-yard touchdown by Keshawn Johnson.
The Foxes took a 14-7 lead on the following drive with an 84-yard scoring drive that was capped with a Corey Henderson 84-yard pass to Alon Clipper.
The Cavaliers later capitalized on a short Fox punt, which set them up on the King George 21-yard line. Johnson later rumbled in from one yard out to tie the game at 14-14.
With 39 seconds left in the half, Henderson connected with Jacob Baker for a 22-yard touchdown. After a converted point after, the Foxes led, 21-14 going into halftime.
In the third quarter, the Foxes were reenergized by an interception from Markiece Johnson. Soon after the Cavalier turnover, Henderson connected with De’shon Brown for a 22-yard touchdown. After a successful point after, the Foxes lead 28-14.
At the start of the fourth quarter, Baker culminated a 71-yard drive with a two-yard touchdown.
Although the Cavaliers responded with a Johnson one-yard touchdown late in the quarter, Antonio Brown foiled a Cavalier on-side kick attempt to promptly return the kick return for a 48-yard touchdown.
On Friday, King George will travel to Culpeper (0-5, 0-8), while the Cavaliers host Chancellor (4-1, 6-2).
