#1 St. John's; #2 Gonzaga; #14 Friendship

Two of the D.C. area’s most dominant football teams found themselves in trouble this week.

For No. 1 St. John’s, Miami’s Central High proved to be the Cadets’ most challenging opponent so far. It took five overtimes and a miraculous, one-handed catch for St. John’s to remain undefeated.

Wise was not as fortunate against Calvert Hall. Despite leading 14-13 late in the third quarter, the Pumas lost their lead, and their 43-game winning streak, in a 19-14 loss

Elsewhere in the rankings, Woodbridge and Stone Bridge posted eye-popping numbers, Friendship Collegiate fended off a DCIAA foe, and Centreville got a big win on the road.
