The Washington Liberty Generals (1-1) lost last week to Wakefield High School and tried to to bounce back against Chantilly Chargers (1-0), who are coming off their first win of the season last week over Falls Church High School.
Chantilly scored the first touchdown of the night, with quarterback Ethan Ross passing to wide receiver Garrett Robertson, who has recently accepted an offer to play for William and Mary next season.
Just moments later, Washington-Liberty struck back, with running back Jackson Broadwell scoring, tying the game momentarily.
Later in the first, Chantilly's McCoy Lockyer came up with the fumble recovery, allowing Ethan Ross in the very next play to help score another touchdown.
Kicker Anthony Ceballos-Medina scored Washington-Liberty's final three points of the evening, but they ultimately came seven points short.
But Friday Night Lights is not just about football -- it's about school spirit, and Washington-Liberty certainly brought that to this home game with a U.S.A. theme.
In addition to the cheerleaders, the school's band and color guard shined on during the halftime show.
