ROCKVILLE — On the night of their homecoming game, the Wootton Patriots pounded the visiting Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons, winning by a 44-0 score.
Wootton entered the game as the top statistical passing offense in the D.C. area. Patriots quarterback Grant Saylor easily topped The Washington Post’s list for most passing yards in the area.
It didn’t take Saylor long to maintain his great season as he led the Patriots to the end zone on its first drive of the game. Wide receiver Elijah Trent (second overall in the D.C. area in terms of receiving yards) was huge on that early drive. Trent caught multiple screen passes, and was able to break tackles to gain extra yards. He would set up his team inside the Barons 10 with a 37-yard catch-and-run. Running back Matthew Amobi finished off the drive as he found the end zone, and after the extra point, Wootton led 7-0.
