Senior running back Tyler Wooley carried the ball 25 times for 167 yards with an average of 6.68 yards per carry. John Austin Sterling was the favorite target with six catches for 106 yards. 

Centreville Academy’s run defense was their weakness last week yielding 188 yards and committing six penalties for 72 yards.
