STEPHENS CITY — Once the Sherando football team picked up the pace, the Warriors started picking up the yards and the points in a hurry.

Sixth-seeded Sherando broke open a seven-point game with two touchdowns in the last four minutes of the first half, and the Warriors went on to a 48-0 win over Northwestern District and Frederick County rival James Wood (seeded 11th) in the first round of the 4A North Region playoffs Friday night at Arrowhead Stadium.

With the win, Sherando (9-2) earns another regular-season rematch. The No. 6 Warriors will travel to play No. 3 Liberty in Bealeton next Friday after the Eagles beat No. 14 Pulaski County 48-7 in their first round game Friday. Liberty (10-1) beat Sherando 28-14 on Oct. 3 in Stephens City.

Despite the final score, James Wood (5-6) put up a much stronger showing than it did in its 44-7 loss to Sherando at Arrowhead Stadium on Oct. 10, when the Colonels fell behind 28-0 after one quarter and 42-0 at halftime.

Regional Rivalry

STEPHENS CITY — If there’s anyone that went to Arrowhead Stadium on the night of Oct. 10 who came away thinking that the James Wood and Sherando football teams would definitely meet each other again in the playoffs, they should start playing the lottery on a daily basis.

The Warriors established their powerful running game from the start by feeding LeeQuan Johnson the ball for all nine plays on a 58-yard touchdown drive, and Sherando kept pouring it on from there.

The Warriors scored four touchdowns in a span of six minutes and 21 seconds to take a 28-0 lead after one quarter. They went into halftime up 42-0 while only surrendering 15 yards. And when it was all over, Sherando had a 44-7 win and had outgained James Wood 391-118.

It wasn’t a night to remember for the Colonels. But they’ve had a couple since that they’ll never forget, which is why James Wood (5-5) — the No. 11 seed in the 4A North Region playoffs — has the full attention of No. 6 Sherando (8-2) heading into today’s 7 p.m. first-round matchup at Arrowhead Stadium.
