Alexandria City High School rallied in the final moments to send their homecoming game into overtime Friday night, but it just wasn’t enough. The West Potomac Wolverines edged their way to a 22-21 win.
The evening included an unexpected appearance by world champion sprinters Noah and Josephus Lyles, who watched the game from the sidelines with ACHS Principal Peter Balas and Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr.
The Titans now have a record of 4-4 and will play this Friday at home against the West Springfield Spartans.
OT loss to West Potomac 22-21. Hurts to lose homecoming, but it was a great game. Congrats to the cross-town rival Wolverines. West Springfield vists Parker-Gray next Friday night. #titansforever#fridaynightlights
