Almost a year removed from the wrong end of a postseason upset against Tuscarora High School, the Stone Bridge Bulldogs were primed for revenge in a rematch against the Huskies on October 19 in Ashburn. Tuscarora, however, had other plans. The Huskies’ defense held Stone Bridge to a season low 14 points, while Tuscarora’s balanced offense eluded the Bulldogs, 24-14.
“With Stone Bridge, you constantly have to change things up,” Tuscarora head coach Brandon Wheelbarger said. “They have a phenomenal coaching staff, and they’re going to find your weaknesses. So from our end that means we have to do different things. Sometimes that means taking chances and rolling the dice.”
