Screaming Eagles Soar Past Falcons in Opener
The Screaming Eagles were flying high Friday night as they began their campaign to make it back to the Division 3A Playoffs by scoring 29 points before running two offensive plays. Seneca Valley scored early and often in the first quarter against the Poolesville Falcons.
“It was a great start to the game,” said Seneca Valley Head Coach Fred Kim. “We were very concerned watching these guys from Poolesville on film; they were well disciplined and well coached. They have made the playoffs the last bunch of years in Division 2A.”
Coach Kim’s concerns were quickly pushed aside he watched Cortez Chase-Ervin, the senior transfer from Gaithersburg, scamper down the field 70-yards to the end zone with the opening kickoff.
The Eagles would get on the board again when junior Dione Jordan stepped in front of a Poolesville pass and brought it 23 yards to for a Pick-6 touchdown on the Falcon’s second play from scrimmage. The interception put Seneca Valley up 14-0.
