St. John’s defeated Gonzaga in WCAC Championship

St. John’s made history on Saturday by defeating Gonzaga 30-7 in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship. The last time St. John’s won a conference title was in 1989 when the league was called the “Metro Conference.” St. John’s hasn’t finished the season with a perfect conference record since 1941.

St. John’s senior quarterback Kevin Doyle went 13-23 with 127 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Running back Antwain Littleton tallied 67 rushing yards and a touchdown, while senior Keilan Robinson registered 66 yards on 12 carries.

Damascus and Walkersville battled it out in a slugfest

Damascus (12-0) didn’t score until the fourth quarter in its 7-3 victory over Walkersville (11-1) on Friday night. The win will send Damascus to the Maryland 2A West semifinals.

Damascus’ quarterback John Allan Furgeson finished with a team-high 61 rushing yards and 30 passing yards. Gage Dickens scored the game-winning touchdown when he ran 14 yards into the end zone.

Questions have been raised on whether Dickens’ touchdown should have counted since there is video footage of Damascus having 12 men on the field during that play.

Wise handled Eleanor Roosevelt in Maryland 4A South Championship 

Wise used a 28-point first half to defeat Eleanor Roosevelt in the Maryland 4A South finale on Friday night.

Wise’s David Medley ran for 137 yards and a touchdown. John Oliver tallied two touchdowns on 75 yards on the ground. Quarterback Quinton Williams threw for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Quince Orchard scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to beat Northwest 

Quince Orchard rallied in the fourth quarter to score 14 points in rout to a 31-20 victory over Northwest in the Maryland 4A West title game. The Cougars were down 13-0 before erasing a 20-17 fourth quarter deficit.

Quince Orchard (10-1) quarterback Doc Bonner finished with 138 passing yards, 85 rushing yards and three total touchdowns.

“Moments like this don’t come around very often,” – Quince Orchard head coach John Kelly told the Washington Post.

The Cougars’ next game will be against Northwest this upcoming weekend.
