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.
