Matthew Balanc’s dominant performance carries Springbrook to blowout win over Einstein

  • Published in Sports

ROCKVILLE — In a battle of two teams on pace to qualify for the Maryland Elite Summer League playoffs, Springbrook Blue Devils star point guard Matthew Balanc (20 points) carried his team to a 66-48 rout over the Einstein Titans.

Balanc started the game for the Blue Devils, but started off extremely cold, in fact the entire Springbrook team struggled to put the ball through the net, not making a field goal for the first five minutes of the game. Einstein started the game on fire however, leading 10-1 with 10:12 remaining the first half.

With 8:25 remaining in the first half, Balanc collided with teammate Cam Rucker and went down hard. Holding his head, Balanc lay on the ground for around a minute. Balanc was helped up by Springbrook head coach Darnell Meyers, but walked off on his own power. Just 18 seconds of game time later, Balanc re-entered the game, and everything changed for Springbrook there.

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.”

KENSINGTON – The Blair varsity football team improved to 8-1 and clinched a playoff berth Friday with a seesaw victory against Einstein, 46-28.

Even with the loss, Einstein (6-3) has still earned its first winning record in four years but must beat undefeated Sherwood (9-0) next week to clinch a playoff spot.

Montgomery Marty predicts the ‘Skins for Super Bowl Sunday

Montgomery Marty


Marty is ready to burst. The Big ‘Hawg fan has had enough of dissin’ the Hawgs.
Marty also wants to know what happened to the Packers last week. Aaron Rodgers looked like RGIII on the field and that ain’t a good thing.
The Green and Gold was supposed to whoop up on the Cow Pokes so the Hawgs could cruise.
Never mind, after winning four-straight The Sound and the Fury is waiting for Captain Kirk to cut loose with another “How you Like THAT!”
He’s earned it. And he earned Marty’s respect giving up his body rushing for a first down on a drive that led to a touchdown last week.
From Marty’s sideline seat, one could see Captain Kirk is the heart of this Redskin football team and Marty predicts a bunch of seasons ahead of this young man - eventually leading the Hawgs back to the Lombardi Trophy.
You heard it here first folks. Write it down and make book on it. The Big Cigar is never wrong. Speaking of which ole Marty was real close on a bunch of games last week and went 14-3. So let’s look ahead.

KENSINGTON – Remember the Titans?

Remember the varsity football team that won just one game in the entire 2015 season?

The 2016 Titans aren’t the Titans of yesteryear.

Einstein (4-2) quadrupled its total wins from last year on Friday after defeating Paint Branch for the first time in four years by a 16-14 score at Titan Field.
