Woodberry Forrest 28 Landon 15

In a game of big plays on a beautiful autumn day in Orange, Virginia, Woodberry Forest topped the Bears 28-15. The Tigers scored on a fumble recovery of 82 yards and touchdown passes of 80 and 75 yards. Their stout defense held the Bears offense in check most of the game. Landon’s defense played hard, but made mistakes at crucial times that contributed to the Tigers prevailing.

WF scored a touchdown in each of the first 2 quarters. The first the result of a 57 yard WF run to the Bears 1 yard line and the second the aforementioned fumble return.

Down 14-0 at the half, the Bears pinned WF at their 4 yard line on the second half kickoff and got on the board with a safety. Unfortunately, they could not maintain the momentum, and WF responded with a touchdown that proved insurmountable.

The Bears showed resiliency causing 3 turnovers in the game, the last leading to a 2 yard touchdown run from Deion Wellington. Joe McDonald had the highlight play of the game for Landon, a 62 yard punt return in the fourth quarter for the final score of the game.

Landon returns to IAC conference play next week with a Saturday tilt in Alexandria with the Saint Stephens/Saint Agnes Saints.
