Sports Notebook: Two stingy defenses

Must Read

In these times when so many football teams, on all levels, score scads of points in games, is it possible, maybe, there could be a scoreless contest on tap settled in overtime? Wouldn’t that be great?

That could actually happen tonight when the top seed and undefeated Madison Warhawks (7-0) host the No. 3 seed Chantilly Chargers (6-1) in the high-school championship game of the 6D North Region Tournament.

Both defensive-oriented squads are stingy allowing few points, while not scoring a ton on offense with their power or option running approaches. Chantilly has three shutouts and Madison two. When the teams met during the regular season, Madison won 10-3.

Chantilly won its region semifinal playoff game, 7-0. The most points either has allowed in an any game this season is 14.

Each held perennial power Westfield to 14 points in regular-season victories.

Madison has allowed just 17 points in its last four games.

So maybe – 0-0 after regulation in the region final, then the winner boots a field goal in overtime for a 3-0 victory.

We’ll see what happens.
