Seneca Valley Boys Drop Home Opener to Springbrook

December 10, 2015

After a strong showing to get a win on the road at Bethesda-Chevy Chase on Friday, Coach Brian Humphries and Seneca Valley were hoping for a home win against basketball powerhouse Springbrook on Tuesday night but came up short in the tough game.

   Springbrook who blasted Poolesville last week, 74-49, in their season opener was too much for the Screaming Eagles. Springbrook took the 84-71 victory.

   Last Friday, Seneca travelled to Bethesda and defeated last year’s 4A state finalist in a hostile environment 69-67 to start the season with a momentum-building win. However, the Springbrook Blue Devils stole some of that momentum.

 

   The Blue Devils jumped out in front early, scoring 30 points in the first quarter, on six 3-pointers, including two from Darren Galvin and two more from Falu Seck, who end the quarter with 10-points and led all scorers with 29 for the game. Galvin ended the game with 18.

   Seneca Valley managed only 13 points in the first quarter. The Eagles finished the game with four players in double-figures including Triston Price, who lead Seneca with 22 points in the game. Tyran Crawford pitched in 11 points, and Kareem Matthew and Brandon Simpson each dropped 10 points in the game.

   The Eagles finished strong putting up 24 points in the fourth quarter, and holding Springbrook to just 13, but the damage was already done, and the charge came tool late to catch the Blue Devils.

   Seneca Valley will host 1-1 Sherwood at 7:15 pm on Monday. The Warriors lost their opener to Good Counsel, 58-39, last Friday and defeated Damascus 65-49 on Tuesday.
