Customers enjoy food and drink specials, big screen TV viewing, but not a win as the Redskins fell 24-14 to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL playoffs.
Leesburg restaurants, hoping to draw in football fans on Sunday, spent the afternoon preparing for the Redskins' first home playoff game since 1999. They got the fans – but their team couldn't secure a win, as the Redskins fell at home to the Seattle Seahawks 24-14. The Baltimore Ravens beat the the Indianapolis Colts 24-9 and will head to play the Denver Broncos. And though the Washington Redskins were taking to the field Sunday hoping to finish their day by packing for a trip to Atlanta to play the Falcons next week, now the Seahawks will head to the Georgia Dome instead. Before that, spirits were high in Leesburg. At The Green Turtle, the pregame excitement was building with fans arriving well before kickoff to watch the game on one of …

Late interception return for a touchdown seals regional playoff win for defending state champion Briar Woods.
On Friday night in Brambleton, the Briar Woods Falcons relied on two scores from their defense to help pull off a 29-19 win over the visiting Loudoun County Raiders. The win sends the Falcons to their second straight Region 2 final where they'll host No. 2 seed Powhatan, who beat Louisa 35-0 in their semifinal game. The Raiders gave the Falcons their greatest test of the season since an opening week loss to Broad Run. Leading just 8-7 at halftime and 15-13 heading into the fourth quarter, the Falcons needed a 34-yard interception return for a touchdown from Jamal Hill to ice the game on a frigid night in Ashburn. Briar Woods struck first when Matt Rolin's sacked Raider quarterback Jake Lokey in the end zone. The safety gave the Falcons the…
Spartans lose quarterback early, never recover from the Blackhawks' season-ending onslaught.
The Broad Run Spartans dream season came crashing to an end Friday night after starting quarterback Connor Jessop left the game early with an ankle injury and the visiting Brooke Point Blackhawks sped off with a convincing 47-27 win and a spot in the regional finals. Early on, it actually looked like Broad Run (8-3) was destined for the next round. After both teams traded punts, the Spartans engineered a 62-yard scoring drive, highlighted by Jessop's 6-yard, cross-body touchdown pass to Kevin Taggart. The score gave the Spartans a 7-0 first quarter lead and seemingly control of the game on their Ashburn home turf. But Broad Run's lead lasted barely 30 seconds as the Blackhawks (9-3) demonstrated the abundance of speed and athleticism that …

Falcons next host Loudoun County in a rematch of the last game of the regular season.
Some people say there is no such thing as a moral victory. However, few would argue that the Park View Patriots didn't come away with at least that much Friday night in Brambleton. After losing to Briar Woods 53-3 in the second game of the season, the Patriots scored more points than any team this season against the usually dominant Briar Woods defense. But in the end, Park View could not keep up with Briar Woods’ overall talent and depth – or their blond "playoff" Mohawks – as Alex Carter and Trace McSorley outdueled Patriot quarterback Alec Dombkowski to help the Falcons come away with the 49-21 win. The Patriots brief flirtation with an epic upset was led almost single-handedly led by Dombkowski. The lanky gunslinger gave the Falcon …
