GAITHERSBURG — Seneca Valley (2-0) defeated Gaithersburg (0-2) 42-2, as the Screaming Eagles won their home opener at their temporary home field at John H. Harvill Stadium at Gaithersburg High School.

Running back Semaj Meannu’s first touchdown of the night was a good omen for the Screaming Eagles. On the only the second play from scrimmage to begin the game, Meannu, broke a 56-yard touchdown run, making one cut and going untouched through the heart of the Gaithersburg defense.

While Gaithersburg struggled early, their offense, led by senior running back Ofori Sidrick and senior quarterback Tyler Woodward, steadily took the Trojans on a nine-play drive that ended in a blocked-field goal attempt that Seneca Valley defensive back Harold Dotson returned for a touchdown.

GERMANTOWN – “Scoreboard” chants rained down from the bleachers Friday at the David A. Young gymnasium as the final minutes ticked away in the Battle of Germantown basketball.

The 7-1 Seneca Valley varsity boys basketball team hosted Northwest (2-8) in the first game back since winter break. A packed crowd was on hand to witness the Screaming Eagles throttle Northwest, 81- 49.

The lopsided score prompted the Seneca Valley student section to call Northwest’s attention to the scoreboard when it became evident that the Jaguars wouldn’t be able to mount a comeback.

“They made us play their game, and when you play their game, they’re going to beat you,” said Northwest Head Coach Rob Smith. “They wanted it more than we did.”
