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.
●GOOD COUNSEL BEATS DEMATHA: The top-ranked Falcons (5-1) defeat rival DeMatha, 13-10.
Kendall Fuller provided an early spark with a 72-yard punt return for a touchdown. DeMatha’s touchdown came on a 42-yard pass from John Lovett to Darryl Turner. Good Counsel’s Dorian O’Daniel was not dressed in a jersey or shoulder pad to start the second half due to a shoulder injury.
The Falcons have won four of the last five matchups between the two Washington Catholic Athletic Conference schools. We will have a full story later tonight plus a photo gallery and video.
●ARUNDEL OFFENSE PUTS ON A SHOW: The 17th-ranked Wildcats beat No. 8 Old Mill, 66-34. The Patriots had entered the game with 19 straight wins, the longest winning streak among Maryland public school teams.
●BULLIS TOPS McNAMARA: Quarterback Danny Copeland threw for 127 yards and three touchdowns and the Bulldogs overcame a sluggish start to beat Bishop McNamara, 26-3, in Potomac.
Bullis (5-0) looked in trouble early after coughing up two fumbles in the first half, but McNamara (2-4) never found a rhythm offensively due to a stingy Bullis defense. Senior defensive end Peter Angeh had two sacks and three additional tackles for loss, and also recovered a fumble lead a unit that forced three second half turnovers.
The first takeaway came on the first play of the third quarter, as McNamara’s Reginald Ware fumbled deep inside Mustangs territory, and Bullis’s Steven Attah returned the loose ball down to the McNamara one yard line.
Quarterback Ramar Williams led McNamara with 103 yards passing. We will have a full story later tonight.
●STONE BRIDGE WINS: The second-ranked Bulldogs improved to 6-0 with a 28-6 victory over visiting Langley (3-3).
●DUNBAR A WINNER: The Crimson Tide moves to 5-1 with a 40-19 victory over Coolidge (1-5). We’ll have a photo gallery and game story later tonight.
●QUINCE ORCHARD REBOUNDS: Coming off a loss to Seneca Valley (6-0), the 13th-ranked Cougars bounced back with a 46-3 over Whitman (2-4).
