Any follower of Northern Region basketball understands that when Herndon plays, the game plan for both teams will revolve around standouts Dorian Johnson and Will Ferguson. Thursday night at Chantilly was no different. The two Herndon stars dropped in 25 points each in a 75-65 victory over the Chargers, creating a four-way tie for first place in the suddenly unpredictable Concorde District. Johnson was dominant inside and out early, while Ferguson had 20 second-half points to pace the Hornets, who moved to 10-4 on the season and 2-1 in the Concorde District. Chantilly dropped to 2-1 in the district as well, 12-2 overall. Chantilly struggled shooting throughout the second half and finished with a 33 percent field goal percentage on …

The 2012 football season: Can Chargers Climb to the Top of Concorde?
Friday, August 24, 2012
Chargers benefit from last year's experience.
Sharing one town with the district champion and neighboring another with the state runner-up would give most high school football coaches migraine headaches. But Mike Lalli is not most coaches, nor does he falter under pressure. Instead the Chantilly Chargers varsity head coach—now in his eighth season at the helm—invites the challenge of besting his team’s winning record from 2011 in hopes of earning a district and regional banner of their own. “Every team in the Concorde, if not in the region, has the goal of getting to the regional championship,” said Lalli. “In order to get there you have to go on a week by week basis, get a winning record, qualify for the playoffs and challenge for the district.” So, what will it take for the 6-5 …
