Heathwood Hall notes: The Highlanders are off to a 2-0 start and fresh from an impressive 25-21 home win last week against Christ Church in the annual Episcopal Bowl … Heathwood’s resilient defense offset CC’s 341 offensive yards by coming up with five turnovers. Alec Gregg and Chris Barton intercepted passes. Linebacker Walker Sojourner had a big game with 20 tackles … The offense consisted of Mac Whalen running and passing and Cole Fowble’s kicking. Whalen darted for 87 yards and three touchdowns and was 10-for-30 for 180 yards passing. His 7-yard scoring run with 3:55 to go was the winner. Fowble nailed field goals of 26 and 27 yards … For the season, Whalen has 320 yards rushing and five touchdown runs, while going 23-for-53 for 241 yards in the passing game … Soujourner has 32 tackles and two sacks, while fellow senior Morgan Whalen has 25 stops and two sacks.
Series history: The Highlanders have dominated the Indians through the years, winning 11 of the 12 meetings since the series began in 1998. OP’s only success to date was a 40-16 triumph in 2002. The Highlanders have prevailed in seven straight meetings, including three playoff wins, since that lone stumble vs. the Indians.
