Senior Meech Hembry scored on a 20-yard run with 3:05 left to give Broad Run the insurance touchdown it needed in a 36-21 win over crosstown rival Briar Woods on Friday night.

Wed., Aug. 31 | 11:02 AM - The Briar Woods Falcons unleashed a smothering defense and emerging ground game to defeat the Tuscarora Huskies, 21-0, at home Aug. 26 in Brambleton, marking the start of what’s sure to be an intense and competitive 2016 varsity football season in Loudoun County.

Thu., Aug. 25 | 09:00 AM - For the Briar Woods football program, this season is about a change in culture, a change in leadership and, the Falcons hope, a change in results.
