South County too much for Hanover in State Semifinals

LORTON, VA (WWBT) - South County's tricky offense and a big first half hole were too much for Hanover to overcome in their quest for a state title.  The Hawks lost in the semifinals of the District 5 playoffs, 38-22 in Lorton, VA.

The Stallions got on the board quickly, as Shane Foley hooked up with Michael Ferguson for touchdown on their first drive of the game.  A few drives later, the Stallions took a 14-0 lead after a Anthony Rector touchdown run.

Then South County got creative.  The triple option offense had all ready given the Hawks trouble, but in the second quarter they converted a double reverse pass for a first down.  A few plays later, running back Jake Josephs took a pitch from Foley and threw a touchdown pass to Ferguson to make it 21-0.  The Stallions went into the locker room with a 24-0 lead.

Hanover gave the Stallions a scare to start the third quarter.  Sam Rogers caught a 71 yard pass to set up an L.J. Jones touchdown run, to close the gap to 17.  But South County answered with a touchdown on their next drive, and even though Jones scored two more touchdowns, the Stallions never let the Hawks get too close.

Hanover's season ends with an 8-3 record.  The Hawks lose in the state semifinals for the third time in the last five years.
