WUSA9 Game of the Week: Lake Braddock High School vs Robinson High School

Robinson scored in the fourth quarter with 42 seconds left in the game to win 35 - 31 over its rival Lake Braddock for the Battle of Burke.

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — This week's WUSA9 Game of the Week was the Battle of Burke rivalry game between the Robinson Rams and the Lake Braddock Bruins that came down to the wire.

Robinson scored in the fourth quarter with 42 seconds left in the game to win 35 - 31 over its rival. 

It was an impressive win for Robinson, who came back from 17 points down in the fourth quarter to win.

The Battle of Burke is a rivalry game between these two high schools in Fairfax County that is played annually in northern Virginia.

Both the Bruins and Rams have a combined record of 12-2 after Friday's game.

Robinson has won the last couple of matchups against Lake Braddock, but the rivalry is one that can go back and forth in the win column. 

Both teams are likely to make the playoffs come the end of the season, so who knows, they may match up again in 2021.
