Mt. Vernon and Falls Church High School fans bolstered their field hockey teams this week, helping the Thursday faceoff win Patch's "Game of the Week" poll for the National District.
In this week's poll, the matchup beat out cross country meets between Falls Church, Wakefield, Hayfield and Edison and Stuart, Mt.Vernon, Yorktown and Washington-Lee, respectively, and another field hockey matchup between Yorktown and Washington-Lee.
Mt. Vernon High (7-2-1) is off to a solid start this season, including a stellar performance in the "Under the Lights" tournament at Lee High School last month. Falls Church High School (1-7-2) posted its single win against Wakefield High on Sept. 6.
The game will be featured on Patch later this week.
