Jags and Eagles Hope For Better Results This Week

September 24, 2014

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

Both Germantown high school football teams have something to prove as they get back into action this Friday.

   Seneca Valley hopes to travel down to Bethesda-Chevy Chase and replace some of the bad memories left by last week’s 46-6 shellacking at the hands of Northwest, and Northwest wants payback for last year’s regular season loss to Gaithersburg.

   “We are looking forward to playing the Trojans in ‘the Black Hole’ Friday night,” said Northwest Head Coach Michael Nuebeiser. “We still have a bitterness in our mouth from the 26-6 defeat that they handed us last year.” That game, at Gaithersburg on Sept. 28, 2013, was the last time the Jaguars tasted defeat. The Jaguars can be confident carrying a 13 game win streak and the 4A State Champs banner.

   Gaithersburg brings a 2-1 record to Northwest on Friday, with loses to Sherwood and Clarksburg, and 40-0 win over Watkins Mill. “We will need to continue to improve in all aspects of our game to beat the Trojans at home,” said Nuebeiser. “We hope to have a big turnout from the Germantown community on Friday night.” Coach is asking the Northwest supporters to wear black on Friday.

   The Jags may remember what defeat tastes like, but Seneca Valley has had their fill of it after last week’s game, which was the worst beating in the 39 years of the program’s existence. “There were zero bright spots in the game,” said Head Coach Fred Kim. “We played by far, the worst game in Seneca Valley Football history.”

   “Despite our complete humiliation last Friday night, we need to get back to the basics and execute all the fundamentals that we forgot against Northwest,” said Kim. “We will need to not look back, but focus on correcting our mistakes. We need to practice hard all week and move on from that debacle. Despite the tough loss to our crosstown rivals, the season is far from over and we plenty of opportunities in front of us. We simply have to believe in ourselves, the program, and the staff.”

   For a team ailing from a recent beating, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Barons may be just the medicine to get back to winning. The Barons are struggling this season with an 0-3 record and have never beaten Seneca Valley. In the last six meetings, the Screaming Eagles have beaten the Barons by an average of 35 points.

   “We have the talent on this team to do well. Now, we just to get it done,” said Kim.
