Northwest Tames Bulldogs 56-6

October 24, 2015

The Northwest Jags did not waste too much time regrouping after last week’s humbling 28-7 loss at Quince Orchard. And while the scheduling gods may not have been kind to the Jags all season — Northwest is playing arguably the toughest schedule in Montgomery County — playing a down but improving Churchill team is a good way to get back on track. The Jags were in the end zone three times before the first quarter was half-over.

   Northwest Head Coach Michael Neubeiser said on Twitter prior to the Quince Orchard game that this season was “by far the toughest scheduled we’ve had in my tenure as head coach.” And this young Jags team has been playing some of the best teams in Montgomery County.

   A MoCofootball.com graphic shows the Jags playing teams with 36 wins and 13 losses through the first seven weeks of the 2015 season. As a comparison unbeaten Damascus, the Washington Post top ranked team in the DC area, is playing teams with 22 wins and 27 losses through seven weeks.

   However, this week 1-5 Churchill was a good team to get back on track against. Senior quarterback Mark Pierce got the scoring going early after a Churchill fumble recovery. Pierce hit sophomore Alphonzo Foray on a nine-yard scoring strike to put the Jags up 7-0. It would be the first of four first-half touchdown passes for Pierce.

 

   Piece would throw for the end zone again on the next series, as he found junior running back Kahlil Owens for a 14-yard touchdown pass.

   The Jags special teams would extend the lead with a blocked field goal by senior Martin Foray returned 84 yards for a touchdown by senior Ibrahim Konate to put the Jags up 21-0 in the first quarter. Martin Foray would later intercept and pass and block a Churchill punt in the end zone for a touchdown.

   Churchill would get on the board with 10:25 left in the half after a fumble gave them the ball to cut the score to 21-6. The two point conversion would be stopped by Northwest.

   Pierce’s last two TD passes of the half would be sandwiched around a special teams punt block in the end zone. Pierce’s TDs would both be to Konate, one for one-yard and another for 19-yards. The Jags took a 41-6 lead into halftime and never looked back.

   Next week the 5-3 Jags will host the 4-4 Clarksburg Coyotes, who are coming off of their disappointing 20-13 loss to Richard Montgomery Rockets, which have eliminated the Coyotes from the post season.
