Sophomore running back Jalen Hampton was a star for the Little Hoyas against Benedictine. The Georgetown Prep varsity football team had leaned on the run all season, but the Little Hoyas reached a new level of success in using that tactic on Saturday. Hampton finished the game with 239 rushing yards on 29 carries with three touchdowns.  

Benedictine started the game with the ball, and was driving down the field. The Little Hoyas’ defense struggled to stop the Cadets on their opening drive. That is, at least until Prep’s junior defensive back Thomas Muldoon picked off Benedictine quarterback Jay Woolfolk on a pass over the middle. Muldoon cut to the outside, and ran past the Cadets 70 yards back for a touchdown to put his team up 7-0.

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

  • Published in Sports

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.
