By Staff Reports,
We’ll have stories, photo galleries, videos and box scores from games around the area later tonight. But for now we offer you an early look at some notable games. Know of something significant that happened tonight? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
●DAMASCUS BEATS SENECA VALLEY: The 12th-ranked Hornets knocked off No. 4 Seneca Valley, 14-13, in a huge matchup in Montgomery County.
The Hornets fumbled on their first offensive play and committed four turnovers in the first half, but led 14-7 at intermission. That ended up being all the points Damascus would need.
Damascus noseguard Rashard Budd helped to seal the game by intercepting a screen pass with fewer than three minutes to play.
In the first half Jalen Christian of Damascus (9-0, 4-0 Montgomery 3A)returned an interception 85 yards for a touchdown.
James Jones-Williams took a short pass 67 yards for a touchdown for Seneca Valley (8-1, 3-1) in the first half.
We’ll have a complete game story, plus a photo gallery and video later tonight.
●WILSON 20, DUNBAR 13: Travon Parker returned a fourth quarter kickoff 80 yards and Wilson’s defense came up with a turnover late to preserve a win over Dunbar at Cardozo High School.
Dunbar (6-2) took a 13-12 lead with just over four minutes remaining after quarterback Lamal Matthews connected with his brother, Delonte Matthews on a 52-yard passing touchdown. But Parker answered on the ensuing kickoff, finding a seam on the right side for the score.
Matthews drove Dunbar into Wilson territory on the next drive, but was intercepted by Khalil West on fourth down at the Willson 22-yard line.
Jeremy Dixon led Wilson (7-3) with 127 yards and a touchdown, on a night when the Tigers didn’t complete a pass on offense.
Matthews threw for 136 and two touchdowns for Dunbar, which committed nine penalties for 90 yards and committed two turnovers.
We will have a full game story with more details later tonight.
