Note: The site has been down for over two weeks and our summaries will be at the very least brief ones.  The second half of the season should be much more detailed.

GAME ONE (Friday Night at Walker Mill)
Fatz Bulldogs Varsity 18 vs Ft. Hunt Varsity 0

Info: This was one of the closest and tightly fought games of the season so far.  After a tough two weeks for both teams playing against the upper level talent in the league, it was good to have to equal teams battling each other.  Ft. Hunt had the running game going behind a stout offensive line and scored first.  Daveon Walton played big, as did Zack Monson & Hunter Stewart.  Jay Holzworth was very tough, but without Amir "Pound for Pound" Jordan and Zaire Green on hand to run the ball, difficult for Ft. Hunt to sustain drives. The Bulldogs came back behind the arm of Marcus Swann, who took over the QB duties and led his team to the victory.  Vincent Moore was a stallwart on the OL for the Bulldogs.  Hayen Frazier and Quran Hughes were spectacular.  Donald Brewer is a very intriguing prospect as well.

Game #2: (Saturday at Loyola)

Marlboro JV 52 vs Fatz Bulldogs JV 7

Info: Marlboro got back on the winning track by jumping all over the Bulldogs in this one.  QB Mike Sumner was very effective through the air connecting with impressive WR Tamar Campbell.  Keith Broadnax and Robert Morgan were strong on defense.  Tyrik Blount is a baller.  When they get Darius McBride back from injury they are going to be that much more difficult to handle.  The Bulldogs just couldn't get very much of anything going on this day.

Game #3

Westlake JV 6 vs MoHo Co JV 6 in Triple OT

Info: Truly an amazing youth football game.  It was a slug fest up and down the field for 4 quarters with Westlake moving it on the ground and MoHo Co moving it through the air.  Andre Benson, "AKA The Cat Burglar" changed the whole tone of the game with his defense.  We call him the Cat Burgler because he keeps skeaking into the backfield undetected on a regular basis.  The Voyce suggested that opposing teams invest in an ADT security system to keep this kid out of their backfield.  He had at least 4 sacks on superstar 6th grade QB Trace Campbell and knocked him out of the game on one of the backside hits.  Without Campbell, the Lions offense sputtered.  When Antione "The Cannon" Littleton went down before halftime, it looked bleak for the Lions.  But, the played tough and contained Michael Prather and Eric Hampton to push it to overtime.  Littleton came back, while Campbell made a Superman impression and suited back up on a gimpy knee, but Dion Wilkens picked him off on OT.  After 3 hard fought sessions, the game ended in a tie with the Bulldog defense led by Kam Adams shutting down the LIons.  Matthew Lipp is a name to remember for the Lions, as is Chris Clark and Tre Wade.

Game #4

Gorc JV 27 vs Hamilton JV 7

Info: Game was closer than the score would indicate.  But this Gorc team is special.  The base of them made up the 6th Grade MD State All Star Team that won the Mid Atlantic Championship last year.  QB Sam Sweeney is a dual threat athlete that can run equally as well as he throws.  He has a ton of athletes to choose from.  Austin and Ashton Allen and Joshua Dodd were too tough on the Hamilton defense.  The OL, lead by Branden Puller and Devin Grinnage is stout and consistently opened holes for Ryheem "Ounce for Ounce" Tull, Gerame "Worm" Spraggins, and William "Boom" Oliver.  Defensively, Derek Flournoy, Billy Wooden, DeSean Spencer, and Adrian Hood were suffocating all day.  On the Hamilton side, Jabriel "Jet" Johnson was contained for the first time all season.  Najee Boyd was not able to dominate this game like he usually does, but don't count these Tigers out.  They are well coached and have a ton of talent.  Cam Hart can make plays from the QB spot and we like linemen Anthony Johnson, Warren Cornish, and Kijuan Williams a lot.  Noah Costopoulous is a multi-talented skill player that has to be accounted for.

Game #5

Westlake Varsity 31 vs MoHo Co LIons Varsity 12

Info: This was the first test of the year for Westlake and boy were they tested!!!  The Lions have elite shutdown corners that made it hard for the spectacular Westlake WR's from getting separation.  Micah McNeil was on one side holding it down, while Brandon Willis was on the other side.  With Jabari Bennett,  Jacob Hagy, Chance Campbell and Sean "Cowboy" McCutcheon applying consistent pressure up the middle of the field, the Bulldogs were unable to get anything going for two quarters until unheralded, but elusive RB Rashard Jackson exploded up the middle and down the right sideline for the first of his 3 scintillating TD runs.  The first one gave the Bulldogs a 6 - 0 lead at the half.  The fans were stunned at the competitiveness of this game.  The MoHo Co Staff did a great job preparing the kids for the first half.  In the second half it was the Bulldogs staff that went to work and they came out smoking to say the least.  Jackson exploded for another long score, then DeJuan Ellis hit Deonte Hill on a perfect pass that he turned into a long TD run using his blazing speed.  Jason Labbe got loose and showed his talent on a punishing TD run.  The Bulldogs put the Lions away 33 - 12 as the rain began to come down.  Myles Harris and Cam Goode controlled the middle of the field all day.  Once the Lions lost star player Jamal Gay to an injury, much of the steam came out of their offense.

Game #6

Gorc Varsity 12 vs Hamilton Varsity 0

Info:  The skies opened up on this highly anticipated matchup of border rivals.  It was a hard hitting and physical game.  The rain took much of the steam out of the Gorc passing attack, as the first quarter ended in a tie. Late in the 2nd quarter, QB Richard Dion connected on a crossing pattern to elite sprinter Eric Allen, who made the catch and turned on the speed.  He ran away from all of the Tiger defenders for the first score.  Both teams continued to attack each other on offense and stop each other on defense before late in the 4th quarter, a jarring tackle by a Kendal McKissic caused a fumble that was picked up by DeJuour Turner-Evans who ran it back all the way for the 50 yard game clinching TD for Gorc.  Courtland Deverne had a good game for Gorc, along with Westly Jones and Parker Robinson.  Ephraim Moore and Sean Pencook were solid on defense for Gorc.  Jamaine Jeter ran hard behind Jaelen Hall, Jamal Shearin and the rest of the Hamilton OL.  Taron Vincent was relentless on defense and was welcomed back from injury.  Hamilton was not able to get their ground game going and passing was tough in the pouring rain.
