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.

PHOTO BY JACQUI SOUTH  BURTONSVILLE – Valuable seconds were ticking off the game clock. If the visiting Springbrook Blue Devils varsity football team wanted to spoil the Paint Branch Panthers’ undefeated season, the time was now.

Then, Dejuan Johnson came out of nowhere. The senior defensive back intercepted Springbrook quarterback Trevon Ruffin as the buzzer signaled the end of the game and the Paint Branch bench flooded onto the field.

In a game marred by penalties and dropped passes, the Panthers clawed their way to a 28-25 victory and a 5-0 start to their season.

“I was telling all my teammates to just hold them and not give up any big plays. Then the ball came and I made a play with the help of my teammates,” said Johnson of his crucial interception. “For me and the whole team to come out there after being down for most of the game and then coming back, it was a hard-fought win and I think we deserved it.”

Montgomery Marty’s Weekly Picks for Sept. 28, 2017

How do you like me now coach? Captain Kirk leads da’ Hawgs

Montgomery MartyThey looked like the ‘Hawgs of old. The offensive line of the ‘Skins skinned ‘em alive.
Captain Kirk picked apart the defense and those bad old Raiders learned about smash mouth football the old fashioned way.
It was as close to a perfect game as a defense could pull off and even with a couple of offensive turnovers on silly fumbles, the Raiders had no chance against a lockdown defense.
Mighty Marty’s seen ‘em come and go, but this year’s Redskins defense is shaping up to be a Super Bowl quality team. Coupled with an offense in over drive and the NFC can look out for dem Hawgs.
That’s right, The Big Basso profundo is saying it right here and now: The ‘Skins are looking better than they have in years. Even Dan Snyder’s ugly suits and short man mentality can’t stop this team.
As for local high school action, Marty loved the Bullis and Q.O. matchup last week, and really looks forward to the Northwest and Good Counsel game this week.
Marty’s blazing away with a 55- 12 record this year. So let’s see what’s up this week:

Concussion fears reduce numbers of students turning out to play football

  • Published in Local

Football helmets on fieldFewer students are coming out for football in many County public schools due to a changing population that often prefers soccer, the need for many students to have jobs after school — and the increasing fear of concussions that may result in lifelong medical problems.

While many of the coaches who spoke with the Sentinel agreed that blows to the head can be dangerous, they all stressed how much safer football is now as compared with when they played the game.

At Seneca Valley High School in Germantown, participation in football is “way down. The last three years, the numbers have shrunk significantly,” said Seneca Valley head coach Fred Kim.

He blamed decreased enrollment at the high school as well as what he termed “the war against football” in the news and on social media.

Montgomery Marty’s Weekly Picks for Sept. 14, 2017

That was a forward pass - and the referees don’t get a free one

Montgomery MartyThe Big Hoss on the Ponderosa is sitting, ready to choke on his favorite Cuban stogie after watching the ‘Skins choke in week one.

Captain Kirk was spotty, but the defense was trainspottin’. The offense showed moments of hope, but the Big “D” took off down the slippery slope.

And with all that said, we was in it to win it and cou’dve done it.

Everyone but the referee - well even the referee - knew that was an incomplete pass.

If the fix is in for the NFL it’s upstairs in the booth. Everybody on earth knew that was a blocked pass and not a fumble. If the Hawgs are gonna lose - let it be because of their horrible play - not a horrible play call by a referee with a Jimmie Cone for a brain. Last week Marty went 15-3 proving he’s better than any NFL referee and bring his total up to 29-6 for the season.

So let’s take a look at the local fun coming up this week:
