Montgomery Marty’s Weekly Picks for Sept. 21, 2017

Hawgs back on top – but still have a ways to go

Montgomery MartyThe mighty Hawgs are back on top this week and Captain Kirk Cousins’ late touchdown pass gave this Buckin’ Bronco some hope for the season.
But the ‘Skins still need a better defensive scheme - some of that Packers “Nitro” might be good. We definitely got the personnel for it.
Meanwhile, two tough games are coming up for Hawgs fans. We win one of these two and watch out, NFL.
In high school action this week the High n’ Mighty thinks something mighty strange is going on.
Only three games were competitive - and only one was settled by one point. Blow outs ruled last week with Quince Orchard beating Clarksburg like a red-headed stepchild. The clock was spinning more than running.
A couple of teams have byes this week, so it’s going to be a light week - which might be good. Maybe a week of rest will help out.
For the rest of the teams out there, quit playing “Madden” and start playing some real football. At least learn how to stop the off-tackle run.
There’s a few good games this week so keep your fingers crossed:

When the Richard Montgomery Rockets clashed with their rivals the Wootton Patriots on Friday at Roy Lester Stadium, the two squads delivered the latter in a penalty-riddled scoring fest that saw the Rockets ride home on a 40-34 victory.

The game came down to the wire as the Patriots geared up for a game-deciding fourth-and-two on the Richard Montgomery 12-yard line with less than a minute left on the clock.

Wootton senior quarterback Grant Saylor passed to his right and Rockets senior defensive back Daryn Alexander was there. Alexander broke up the pass and ended the Patriots’ final chance at earning a win.

“I just saw the ball in the air and I just attacked it,” he said. “I just trusted my instincts. Defense wins games.”

Bullis Bulldogs pull away from Avalon in the second half to win 30-14

  • Published in Sports

Bullis logoPOTOMAC — In a very long affair, the Bullis Bulldogs did away with the Avalon Black Knights, pulling away in the second half to win the game 30-14.

The first quarter was sloppy for both teams, but Bullis was able to turn an Avalon mistake into points. On Avalon’s first play on their second drive of the game, quarterback Aaron Gibson, who was standing in his own end zone to take the snap after a great Bullis punt, dropped the snap, and Bullis’ Dalton Lewis fell on it in the end zone for a touchdown. Gibson would leave the game later with a shoulder injury, and would not return. The Black Knights weren’t able to get much going with Gibson in the game, but it didn’t get any better without him.
