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

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 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.

CLARKSBURG – Richard Montgomery senior Tylen Hebron and the Rockets escaped Clarksburg Friday night with a hard-fought 28-27 road victory over the host Coyotes.

Clarksburg trailed Richard Montgomery 28-21 late in the fourth quarter before the Coyotes’ senior signal-caller Brian Walker connected with senior wide receiver Ian Krishnan on an 85-yard touchdown reception with 5:46 remaining to knot the score at 27 apiece.

However, Krishnan, who is also the team’s placekicker, had his extra point attempt blocked by Hebron.

The blocked PAT proved to be the difference in the game and would eventually seal the win for Richard Montgomery after Krishnan’s 41-yard field goal attempt in the final minute fell short.

“I don’t like to take plays off,” said Hebron. “I’m just filling my role. I’m a team captain.”


Urbana upsets Clarksburg for first win of season, 17-12

IJAMSVILLE- On paper, the game against the Urbana Hawks should have been easier than it was for Clarksburg, as the Coyotes entered with a 3-2 record against Urbana’s five-game losing streak.

Yet Urbana came out with its first win of the season during homecoming against an underperforming Clarksburg squad.

“I just gave them two messages: first one is tomorrow is homecoming, have fun but be smart, and the second message was, you know, we got the win, but we still have a long way to go, we still have a lot of room to improve,” said Urbana Head Coach Ryan Hines.


Clarksburg fends off Wootton for 29-23 win

ROCKVILLE – The result, like the weather, turned out gloomy for Wootton as the Patriots’ varsity football team lost 26-23 against visiting Clarksburg Friday night.

At times, it seemed as if Wootton fought bad luck, with turnovers at inopportune times and an unpredictable Clarksburg defensive.

“It was the little mistakes that caught up to us in the end,” said Wootton Head Coach Eddie Tolliver.

“All credit goes to Wootton, they did a nice job, executed a great offensive game plan, (and) executed very well tonight,” said Clarksburg Head Coach Larry Hurd.

BETHESDA – If the Clarksburg varsity football team needed some extra kryptonite to defeat Bethesda–Chevy Chase on Thursday, the answer came in the form of Ian Krishnan.

The senior free safety’s impressive performance helped lead his team to a 28-7 victory over the winless Barons. 

Krishnan, who also plays wide receiver and kicker, finished the game with three interceptions, an offensive and a defensive touchdown.

He went 4-for-4 on extra points, including capping off his own pick-six with another point to send B-CC packing. 

“He’s a great athlete, and just about everyone is looking at him,” said Coyotes Head Coach Larry Hurd, Jr. “We’re very excited for him.”
