WEEK SIX MOCO ROUNDUP:

#3 Quince Orchard 40 - Clarksburg 12

In a rematch of last year's thriller, the 2010 Cougars played aggressive football and that aggressiveness paid off. They recovered an opening kickoff fumble by the Coyotes and scored on a Drew Murphy to Harry Long pass. Then Cougars' Matt Sherman intercepts a Mike Sheehan pass that lead to Drew Murphy scoring another touchdown pass this time to Tyrell Williams. James McCallister would add on another touchdown for the Cougars before the Coyotes' Naim Reed found the endzone to cut the Quince Orchard lead, 20-6.

The Cougars would score with a pair of runs in the second half with McCallister scoring again followed by Mark Green. Quince Orchard linebacker Alex Twine returned an interception for a score to extinguish Clarksburg's hope for a comeback.

Quince Orchard is now a solid 5-1 while Clarksburg's playoff hopes dims with their record slipping to 3-3.

#8 Rockville 44 - Wheaton 20

One of MoCoFootball.com's Game of The Week pit two of the best running backs in the D.C. Metro Area. Rockville's Crusoe Gongbay and Wheaton's Rayshawn Taylor.

Both running backs have surpassed the 1000-yard mark but the king of the ground game's team prevails in a 44-20 win. Gongbay rushed 16 times in three quarters for 218 yards in the contest. This gives him over 1300 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns in six games. His fellow running back Nate Nolasco rushed 18 times for 96 yards, 2 TDs. Wheaton's Taylor rushed for 186 yards for the night.

The win makes Rockville the 2A Division Champions. The Rams defeated Poolesville, the only other MoCo 2A opponent, in week 2.

#1 Damascus 49 - Watkins Mill 21

Watkins Mill looked headed for an upset win after scoring 17 seconds into the game with a 67-yard trick play for a 7-0 lead. But the Wolverines struggled with Damascus' offensive attack. The Hornets played classic Damascus football pounding Watkins Mill with runs by John Hanley, Mark O'Hara, and the brilliant and most frustrating player that is Connor Frazier. Frazier would connect with O'Hara on a 77-yard screen pass to make it 28-7 at the half.

The Hornets would score three more times with Frazier passing to Zach Bradshaw followed by runs to paydirt by Alberto Marroquin (kicked five extra points) and Sultan Oyeshile. Watkins Mill would get to 21 points for the night, definitely not enough to beat mighty Damascus.

Damascus is still perfect at 6-0. Watkins Mill has lost three straight since starting the season 3-0, they are now at 3-3. Damascus hosts the only other undefeated team in MoCo Public, Sherwood on week 7 for what will be the MoCo Football Game of the Week.

It is noted from the forum that Damascus had two players taken to the hospital: Connor Augerson and Taylor Krenzke.

#2 Sherwood 41 - BLAIR 13

The Warriors try to erase memories of a questionable victory last week with a thrashing of Blair. Senior running back Dylan Hubbard scored two touchdowns in the first quarter, one going for 63-yards. Jamal Merritt then scored a pair of touchdowns himself, one from an AJ Pignone pass and the other a 15-yard run to put the Warriors up 28-0 in the first half.

Blair opened the 2nd half with a three-minute drive to that resulted in a Blazer touchdown (but missed the extra point). Less than two minutes later, Warriors QB AJ Pignone connects with Mike Begley to put Sherwood up 35-6.

Either team would trade touchdowns with Merrit scoring his third for the Warriors' 41-13 win.

#4 Seneca Valley 37 - Northwest 0

The Battle for The King's Trophy looked like a sacrificial fest to say the least. It did not help that Northwest kept turning the ball over and a superbly disciplined Seneca Valley team took advantage. Eddie Cunningham looked to score in cruise control throughout the first half in which the green and gold went into with a 28-0  lead.

Seneca Valley looked to keep the score tamed just under the 35-point advantage that would have kept the clock rolling. This allowed SV to rotate and allow as many players from the bench get some playing time, after all, it is homecoming night. Seneca Valley went on to win 37-0 to win the 12th game of the series; the 4th straight for the Green and Gold. SV improves to 5-1 while the Jags are still looking for their first win of the regular season since October 23 of 2009.

#5 Gaithersburg 20 - Paint Branch 15

MoCoFootball September Player of the Month Zack Fetters threw 15 completions in 30 attempts for 134 yards, two touchdowns and a two-point conversion for the Trojans' come from behind win over Paint Branch. Paint Branch wide receiver Earvin Anumgba caught seven passes for 117 yards and 1 TD.

Gaithersburg improves to 5-1, Paint Branch drops to 3-3.

#7 Springbrook 41 - Richard Montgomery 14

Devon Pestano rushed 27 times for 205 yards and four touchdowns in the Blue Devils' demolition of Richard Montgomery. Pestano scored the 'Brook's first three touchdowns of the game. Pestano has over 800 yards rushing in six games; putting him in the DC Metro Area's Top 10 rushers so far this year.

The Blue Devils are now 5-1. The Rockets are 0-6 and still looking for their first win under Coach Neal Owens. RM last won a game on October 10, 2008.

#6 Whitman 35 - Wootton 6

The Vikings running game highlighted a dominant performance by the black and columbia blue. Val Djidotor and Leo Doran each scored two touchdowns on the ground while Henry Kuhn adds another touchdown pass to his resume by tagging Michael Flack with six points.

Whitman improves to 5-1 and faces four teams with a combined record of 19-5 to finish the regular season (Gaithersburg, Springbrook, Seneca Valley, and Churchill). Wootton falls to 0-6.

Note: Wootton’s first-year Head Coach Greg Tolliver collapsed trying to lead his Patriots to the locker room after the first half. He was admitted to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital and is said to be in fair condition.

Walter Johnson 42 - B-CC 28

WJ was up 21-6 at the half. B-CC cut the Wildcats' lead 28-21 in the third quarter before Walter Johnson ran away with the 42-28 win in a battle of two Bethesda teams on the rise. Walter Johnson improves to 3-3 while B-CC drops to 4-2. The win is WJ's second straight and they face 0-6 Northwest, 1-5 Blair, and 0-6 Wootton, and 0-6 Richard Montgomery. B-CC's next four has Blair, and three teams with non-losing records; Watkins Mill, Churchill, and Gaithersburg.

Northwood 28  - Einstein 7

The Titans seem to have forgotten how to win. They began the season 2-0 and has since lost four straight; this time to the Northwood Gladiators.

Einstein struck first scoring with a 1-yard Peter Ngoh run in the first eight minutes of the game.

That would be the last time Einstein would score for the night. Northwood would take an 8-7 lead at halftime before scoring 20 more unanswered points. Tristan Pomeroy caught four touchdown passes for the night; three from Gary Vaughn and one from Christian Carter. Both teams are now 2-4.

Blake 48 - Kennedy 6

Blake finally breaks into the win-column by defeating Kennedy in front of a Homecoming crowd on Bengal Field.

Six different Bengals reached the endzone Friday evening including William Sewell, Steven Penland (twice; the other was a 26-yard punt return), Brandon Simms (34-yarder from Julian Carr), Thomas Handy, Vincent Vanlear, and Justin Ingram.

Mutkass Rowland scored the lone touchdown for the Cavaliers. Blake is now 1-5. Kennedy drops to 0-6.

Churchill 16 - Magruder 14

With just 2:33 left to play in the third, the Magruder Colonels are ahead with a 7-3 lead over the Homecoming host Churchill Bulldogs.

The Colonels would tack in another touchdown with a Marcus Moore run to extend the lead to 14-3 in what looked to be a sure win for the navy blue and silver.

If the first three quarters belonged to Magruder, the 4th quarter belonged to Churchill and belonged to them it did. The Bulldogs scored 13 unanswered points to take the lead in the first 6 minutes of the final quarter. Bulldogs quarterback Lansana Keita rushed to paydirt from 10-yards out and connected with Quan Gill for the other.

Magruder drove and got as far as the Churchill 20-yard line with 2:45 to play. A series of incomplete passes eventually led to Churchill taking over downs with about 1:50 left on the clock to secure the win.

Magruder falls to 3-3. Churchill, a team that began the season 0-2 and struggling to score is looking like a solid winning team with their 4-2 record.

MD School for the Deaf 27 - Poolesville 0

The MSD Orioles are one of the nation's best deaf football teams. They are 7-0 for the season. Their 27-0 win over Poolesville is one of their low scoring performances. They usually score in the 50+ range every game.
