CLARKSBURG-The Magruder Colonels broke through a tough Clarksburg Coyote defense to get a 10-3 win Monday night, ultimately dominating the game with a relentless attack.

But the focal point of the Colonels’ attack was senior midfielder Jimmy Hassemann, who scored six points and led the Colonels to victory. Hassemann played the Coyote’s defense well, looping around the back and confusing the defense to score from very close range.

“I feel we did good on defense. From offense we need to take more shots, we need to pick it up,” said junior Coyotes goalkeeper Bryant Evans.

Wootton buries Clarksburg in season opener 18-3

  • Published in Sports

ROCKVILLE – In the season opener for both the Wootton Patriots and the Clarksburg Coyotes girls’ lacrosse team, the Patriots dominated both halves against an inexperienced Coyotes squad to win, 18-3.

It was a stark difference in skill level from start to finish. The Coyotes had an open defense that left room for the Patriots to maneuver into and score. When the Coyotes did get close to goal, the Patriots suffocated them and forced them to play a passing game to make room.

“It wasn’t in our favor. We’re a very, very young team,” said Coyotes’ head coach Denise Miller.

SILVER SPRING – The Kennedy varsity boys’ basketball team is gearing up for the playoffs.

The second-seeded Cavaliers (18-3) are using their last few regular season games to iron out any issues and ride into the playoffs with as much momentum as possible.

Tuesday’s game against Clarksburg (10-11) was no different. The Cavaliers overcame a slow start to throttle the Coyotes, 90-67.

CLARKSBURG- The Northwest Jaguars clawed their way to a win over the Clarksburg Coyotes after a second-half comeback, winning 68-64 to get only their second win of the season.

The win brings the Jaguars’ record to 2-8 and the Coyotes to 6-5. The Jaguars, on paper, should have given the Coyotes an easy win: a midtable team against the team second from last.

“Northwest played extremely hard. They get all the credit in the world. They battled, they got second shots, and we just could not stop them at all,” said Coyotes head coach Steven Watson.

BOWIE – Montgomery County was well-represented Sunday in the 2016 Maryland Crab Bowl on the Bowie State University gridiron.

Although the game was a defensive battle for the better part of four quarters, the Washington team emerged victorious thanks to a short touchdown run from DeMatha quarterback Beau English.

Tied at 3 in the final minute, English, an Air Force recruit, scored on a 5-yard run with 28.1 seconds left to help lift the Washington team to a 9-3 victory over Baltimore.

“It was a roll-out pass, I was looking for my receiver,” said English, “but I decided I saw some grass and just took it, took it in myself so I was real excited to get it done for my team and get the win.”


B-CC rolls while Clarksburg squeaks

Bethesda-Chevy Chase sophomore state runner-up Eli Guttentag (126) edged Poolesville’s Brian Truppo, 2-1 in the highlight bout of a 40-27 non-divisional season-opening Montgomery County dual meet victory for B-CC Dec. 7.

“I won on a takedown in the second period. It was great for me to get my first win at 120,” said Guttentag, a county and regional champion at 106 pounds last year while Truppo competed at 120. “But I definitely found some things that I need to work on such as the top position in order to ride and control these heavier guys.”


Boy cagers face challenges as hoop season begins

Seneca Valley came within a game of playing for a Maryland 3A state title last season but the Germantown public school has one of the county’s top returning players in senior guard Brandon Simpson.
A four-year varsity performer, Simpson averaged 13 points per game last season in leading the Screaming Eagles to a 3A state semifinal appearance.
Quince Orchard boasts perhaps the county’s top returning backcourt in seniors Johnny Fierstein and Matt Kelly who combined to average nearly 40 points per game last season.

CLARKSBURG – The Northwest two-headed rushing attack became too much for the Clarksburg varsity football team to handle Friday night.

Senior running back Khalil Owens and junior running back Juwon Farri combined 245 yards on the ground as the Jaguars (6-3) cruised past the Coyotes (3-6) to a 41-10 final score.

Farri earned 156 yards rushing on 10 carries with four touchdowns, while Owens tallied 89 yards on the ground on nine carries with one rushing touchdown.

“I think it was the big runs, Juwon and Khalil both had some big runs and made the difference in the game,” said Northwest Head Coach Mike Neubeiser.
