Herndon Takes Baron Cameron Bowl With 33-7 Victory Over South Lakes

Ky Parrott, Josh Schow both score two TDs for the Hornets, avenging last season's 42-0 loss.

The Herndon Hornets won the Baron Cameron Bowl for the 11th time since 1999, traveling to Reston Monday night and beating the South Lakes Seahawks, 33-7.

The teams parried through the opening minutes of the game until two Seahawks mistakes, a bad snap on an attempted punt and an interception, led to two quick Hornets touchdowns and a 14-0 lead. South Lakes rallied on a Rashaan Jones run to close the gap to 14-7 before Herndon's Josh Schow scored his second touchdown of the quarter for a 20-7 halftime lead.

Herndon finally put the game away with two fourth quarter touchdown runs from Ky Parrott and Darrius Hicks to close the scoring.

The game was stopped for over 20 minutes early in the first quarter while Herndon junior defensive back Ryan Richards was removed from the playing field via ambulance with an apparent left leg injury.

Herndon evened its record at 1-1 and hosts Yorktown Friday, while winless South Lakes (0-2) goes on the road to Stone Bridge.

No - actually I didn't oppose the boundary change...remember I went to SLHS. I consider myself a true Restonian; I used to ride my bike through the woods of where I live today. But if it makes you feel better to call it east Herndon that's fine. Either way it doesn't change the fact that the two schools/communities are a friendly rivalry...it's bragging rights...last year SL had them...that they were the underdog make the bragging even sweeter.

Let's try to keep the conversation on topic: South Lakes football. Somehow this has veered off track. Thanks.

Cool, so when the next boundary process comes along (and there's one fairly often), we'll be enlisting you in the effort to unify Reston into one high school. My observation of "rivalries" is that they are principally the product of administrator's actions. They gin up the energy level to sell tickets even when there;s no hope of a competitive game. Sort of like fight promoters. Thus, they're using the kids for less than educational and altruistic purposes. To address Kerri's comment, which has now somehow disappeared, I don't want to end the basketball rivalry which has been competitive, spirited and respectful, especially when Gary Hall was coaching Herndon. It's possible to maintain a rivalry in one sport or activity and not in all sports or activities. When my oldest daughter played basketball at SL, their big and intense rivalry was Oakton which never gave the SL boys team much of a game and the Herndon girls cagers didn't gave SL much of a challenge. I just wish the sweetness happened more often for the kids living south of Baron Cameron - 5 times in 31 years ain't right. For too many of these, there's not nearly enough sweetness in their lives.

I don't know. I was just up at the field hockey game and was surprised to see many more fans than I expected and not just a couple of parents. Why? "It's the Herndon game!" said many students and parents. It's not just about football. It's because the kids all know each other.

Has the field hockey teams been competitive with each other or has the series been onesided? Do the coaches gin it up or is it the kids? Is it really Herndon versus Reston or is it North Reston versus South Reston?
