POTOMAC, VA. - While the West Potomac and Lake Braddock football teams no longer compete as Patriot District foes, Wolverines head coach Jeremiah Ross is looking forward to Friday’s trip to Burke with an excitement fueled by a recent history of competitive battles with the Bruins.

West Potomac (1-0) will compete in its first road game of the 2018 season when it travels to face Lake Braddock (0-1) at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 31.

After a lopsided 30-6 loss to Lake Braddock in 2014, Ross’ first season with West Potomac, the Wolverines’ last three meetings with the Bruins have been decided by three points or less.

Lake Braddock won the next two matchups by a score of 24-21, with the 2016 game going to overtime. In 2017, with West Potomac having joined the new Gunston District, the Wolverines beat the Bruins, 28-26. It was West Potomac’s first victory over Lake Braddock since 2007, according to records on maxpreps.com.
