South Lakes Hosts Madison in Battle of Unbeatens Tonight

Football/Credit: eteamz.comFriday’s game is arguably the biggest one in years for South Lakes High School football.

It’s definitely as big as the one a year ago, when the team was 5-1 and played Madison, also 5-1, in a Conference 6 matchup.

The Warhawks won that meeting 38-6.

For this year’s meeting (7 p.m. at SLHS), No. 18 South Lakes and No. 8 Madison are both 6-0 and fighting to stay unbeaten, rule the conference and bolster postseason seeding.

Both teams have seen a huge improvement in recent years. The Seahawks were 2-7 two years ago (but a much-improved 9-3 in 2015). Madison had a one-win season three years ago.

But this is 2016, and both teams are among Northern Virginia’s best.

South Lakes, boosted by halfbacks Spencer Alston and Albert Mensah, is averaging 49 points per game. Alston and Mensah have combined for 17 touchdowns. Quarterback Devin Miles has passed for 17 more, with Alston being his target five times.

Madison quarterback Jacob Choutka has thrown for 11 touchdowns. Receiver Nick Conforti accounts for 459 reception yards and six TDS.
