MONTGOMERY VILLAGE – Poolesville spoiled Watkins Mill’s homecoming Friday night and avenged last year’s loss in the process.
After suffering a one-point loss to the Watkins Mill Wolverines last season, the Poolesville Falcons had revenge on their minds.
Poolesville quarterback Ethan Gaddis connected with running back Connell Oberman on a short touchdown pass in overtime to lift the Falcons to a 48-41 victory over the Wolverines.
On the ensuing possession, Poolesville linebacker Colin Hemingway sacked Watkins Mill quarterback Markel Grant on third down but the Wolverines missed a scoring opportunity when Kaden Prather was stopped short of the end zone after catching Grant’s pass on fourth down.
“Last year was a bad loss,” said Hemingway, who led the Poolesville defense with 9.5 tackles including two tackles for a loss and a pair of sacks. “It’s a huge win to beat them this year.”
