Sophomore running back Jalen Hampton was a star for the Little Hoyas against Benedictine. The Georgetown Prep varsity football team had leaned on the run all season, but the Little Hoyas reached a new level of success in using that tactic on Saturday. Hampton finished the game with 239 rushing yards on 29 carries with three touchdowns.  

Benedictine started the game with the ball, and was driving down the field. The Little Hoyas’ defense struggled to stop the Cadets on their opening drive. That is, at least until Prep’s junior defensive back Thomas Muldoon picked off Benedictine quarterback Jay Woolfolk on a pass over the middle. Muldoon cut to the outside, and ran past the Cadets 70 yards back for a touchdown to put his team up 7-0.

Georgetown Prep dominates Riverdale Baptist football team, 34-14

  • Published in Sports

NORTH BETHESDA- The Georgetown Prep Little Hoyas showed no mercy against the Riverdale Baptist School Crusaders varsity football team in a 34-14 home opener victory  Friday, which highlighted the Little Hoyas’ 800th game.

It was never a question which team would win. The Little Hoyas scored first, forced vital turnovers and had a special teams squad that scored three touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Crusaders only managed two touchdowns. They struggled to get past turnover issues and they botched vital passes that could have turned the tide of the game.

The first touchdown came on a 99-yard rush to the end zone by Little Hoyas senior running back Drew Back in the first quarter.

Sophomore Little Hoyas running back Jalen Hampton followed suit with a 23-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter as well. The score was 13-0, in favor of the home team, going into the second quarter due to one successful extra-point kick and one botched kick.

The Crusaders started the second quarter with a rushing touchdown by junior running back Sadiq Salawu, but the Little Hoyas retaliated as their special teams blocked senior Crusaders kicker Zechariah McBride's punt near the end zone and senior wide receiver Beau Hanley recovered it for a touchdown.

The Little Hoyas special teams struck again and blocked another punt in the second quarter, but this time sophomore tight end Jack Plank recovered it and drove into the end zone.

No scoring happened in the third quarter, but both teams made up for it in the fourth, as junior wide receiver Finn Muldoon scored for the Little Hoyas and junior quarterback Justus McDougal scored for the Crusaders.
