Seneca Valley Soars Over Northwood, Remains Unbeaten

“If this was a prize fight they would have stopped it,” remarked one official as the Northwood Gladiators called timeout after Seneca Valley’s Brandon Simpson nailed a three-pointer to give the Screamin’ Eagles a 19-0 lead with 4:15 remaining in the first quarter of Wednesday night’s 77-34 victory.

Seneca Valley rolled over Northwood to remain unbeaten this season and improve their record to 5-0, while Northwood fell to 2-4. The Eagles remain among the Montgomery County elite as one of four unbeaten teams including Quince Orchard, Kennedy, and Richard Montgomery.

Under Head Coach Brian Humphrey Seneca Valley has prided themselves on playing solid team defense, and that was on display last night in Germantown as the Eagles held the Gladiators to just seven first half points, five points in the first quarter and just a single field goal in the second quarter.

The Eagles disrupted passing lanes, fought for rebounds, and contested every shot, while finding teammates streaking on fast breaks, and an open jumper. When the easy layup wasn’t available, Seneca would find the open man behind the arc for a three-pointer. Seneca sank four three-balls in the first quarter as part of the 19-0 run to open the game. Northwood finally got on the board with 3:20 remaining in the first when Xavier Delgado sank the back-end of two shots from the foul line to make the score 19-1. Seneca’s Trevon Lucas answered the single point with a three-pointer to make the score 22-1. The first quarter ended with Seneca Valley scoring 28 points while holding Northwood to just five.
