Spotswood's Ethan Barnhart gets around the Dragon's defense for a big gain.

Giving up no touchdowns in a season-opening win over William Monroe was impressive by the Turner Ashby defense, but it was the TA offense stealing the show this week with its eye-opening numbers in a 48-26 victory over Western Albemarle.

Meanwhile, Spotswood put on a clinic against struggling William Monroe and showed all the reasons why it's the area's best team and primed for a deep postseason run.

Here's a look at some of the Week 2 numbers:

453 — Spotswood running back Ethan Barnhart's rushing total through two games. Barnhart is averaging 9.9 yards per carry and has scored four times.

359 — How many passing yards Broadway sophomore Cole Hoover has through two games. The Gobblers signal-caller has one touchdown and two interceptions.

314 — Total yards by Turner Ashby quarterback C.J. Haskins in the 48-26 win over Western Albemarle. Haskins finished 13-for-18 passing for 231 yards and a score and added nine carries for 83 yards and two more touchdowns.

259 — Receiving yards Spotswood receiver Rob Smith in its 75-13 rout of William Monroe. Smith had four receiving touchdowns and a 99-yard kickoff return for a score.

143 — The number of rushing yards for TA running back Grant Swinehart against Western Albemarle. The Knights senior finished with two touchdowns as well.

79 — How long HHS quarterback Kwentin Smiley's first-quarter touchdown was against Handley. Smiley also had a first-quarter score in the season-opening loss to William Fleming.

41.5 — How many points per game Harrisonburg is giving up through the first two games. The Blue Streaks have never given up that many points per game during an entire season.

9 — How many years its been since a Turner Ashby team won back-to-back games to start a season. The Knights began 3-0 to start the 2010 campaign.

7 — How many turnovers Harrisonburg had in a 31-13 loss to John Handley. The Blue Streaks had six fumbles and an interception.

6 — The total number of passing touchdowns by Spotswood quarterback Ryan High. High completed 9-of-13 passes for 356 yards before exiting in the third quarter.

4 — How many straight years Broadway has started the season with back-to-back losses. The Gobblers fell to 0-2 with a 32-7 non-district road loss to Skyline.

0 — The amount of BHS players that have rushed for over 100 yards this season. Five Gobblers have rushed for 55 yards or less this season.
