Madison High School capitalized on a penalty to score with 17 seconds remaining to defeat South Lakes 38-35 Friday, spoiling the Seahawks' Homecoming game.
The Seahawks led several times in the game and were ahead after scoring with 2:19 remaining.
The Warhawks got the ball deep in South Lakes' territory in the final minute. The Seahawks held off several Madison chances, including a sack on fourth down with 35 seconds left.
But South Lakes was called for pass interference, resulting in a first down - and then a touchdown - for Madison.
The loss leaves the Seahawks (2-5 overall) still looking for their first Liberty District win (0-4).
Madison (6-1, 4-0 Liberty) has not lost since the season opener against Oakton.
South Lakes was trailing 13-0 in the second quarter when quarterback Rashaan Jones connected with Zac Parker on an 88-yard play to put the Seahawks on the board. Jones hit Parker again with 5:20 left in the half, and the Seahawks briefly took the lead.
But Madison came back a minute later with a 31-yard field goal, and the Warhawks took a 16-14 lead into halftime.
South Lakes took the lead early in the third quarter. Madison got it back to lead by two (31-28) with six minutes left in the game. The Seahawks scored their final points with 2:19 remaining.
Next up for South Lakes, at Langely Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
