The Northwest Jags boys lacrosse team came started the 2016 season with a 17 goal barrage of Kennedy on Tuesday night in Germantown. The Jags are coming off a 6-8 season last year and are off to a good start, tallying more goals than any game last season. Junior captain Cole Notari got the scoring started with 7:58 remaining in the first quarter. Just 3:25 later fellow junior attackman Doug Haller would add another goal, thanks to an assist from another junior, defender Petur
The Seneca Valley boy lacrosse was hoping that lightning would strike twice as they travelled up Route 27 to face their arch-nemesis the Swarmin’ Hornets of Damascus on Friday night. Seneca was coming off a thrilling last-second victory over Watkins Mill and were hoping there was still some magic left in their sticks. However, the 9-3 Damascus team had other plans and defeated Seneca Valley 17-6, eliminating them from the playoffs and ending their season. A season that showed
The Northwest boys lacrosse team came into Thursday night’s first round playoff game with hopes of beating Magruder for the second time this year, but the Colonels had other plans. Magruder defeated the Jags 10-6 in a hotly contested match. The Jags were able to get early goals from seniors Colin Mandel and Cory Hathaway in the first quarter. However, the Colonels were able to keep pace with two goals of their one in the quarter. The Jags would get four more goals in the seco
Wednesday night’s first round boys playoff game between Seneca Valley and Watkins Mill featured bone shaking thunder and shocking lightning bolts, some of which were due to the Spring storms, but the bigger claps happened on the field. The final quarter of the tight game, which earlier had been interrupted by the thunderstorms bowling through Germantown area on Wednesday night, saw the Screaming Eagles give up a three goal lead, only to have Seneca Valley’s attacker Scott Cun
Just fourteen minutes and two seconds into Wednesday’s first round of the girls lacrosse playoff between Northwest and Clarksburg, with the game tied 3-3, all play came to a halt as the skies over Germantown shook with thunder and flashed with lightning. The teams left the field and waited patiently in the hallway of Northwest High School for over 90 minutes as the storms passed through area. At one point, both teams were told to get ready to go back to the field, only to hav
Northwest girls lacrosse hosted Seneca Valley on Monday in the last regular season game for both squads before the playoffs start on Wednesday. The Jags bested the Eagles 15-9, but the game was a good tune-up for both teams. Both teams played hard in some unseasonable late afternoon heat. The Lady Jags came into Monday with a three game losing streak and struggling to put the ball in the net, scoring only 16 goals in those three games. On Monday, the Jags had five girls scori
The Northwest lacrosse team took another step towards getting rid of the ghosts which lingered around after last year’s disappointing season as they defeated Gaithersburg, 13-6 Monday night in Germantown. The Jags were led by Hunter Thompson’s five goals and Cole Notari’s four goals. Thompson got the scoring started just very early as he sliced a shot past Gaithersburg’s goalie Angel Rivera just 14 seconds into the game to put the Jags up 1-0. The Jags came into Monday’s game
Coming off a 1-11 season last year, Seneca Valley’s lacrosse team and their new head coach Jeremy Benson know that things will be better this year. The question is how much better. “I know that I am not coaching a 1-11 team this year,” said Coach Benson. “We have a lot of talented hard working athletes.
