Coyotes Ground Falcons, 59-47, Prep for Seneca Valley on Wednesday

January 24, 2017

The Clarksburg boys’ basketball team has won two games in a row after defeating the Poolesville Falcons, 59-47 in Poolesville on Monday night. The Coyotes have won two in a row, after dropping three straight. Clarksburg also defeated Watkins Mill, 52-39, last Thursday, Jan 19.

   After a slow start and falling behind the 4-8 Falcons, 13-8 after the first quarter, the Coyotes were able to score 15 and held Poolesville to just seven in the second quarter, to lead 23-20 at halftime. Clarksburg relied heavily on the three-ball in the early going with Raemond Thompson hitting two in the first quarter and three other Coyotes hitting one each in the second quarter.

   The Coyotes were led by junior Stephen Armstrong who had 22 points on eight field goals and shot six-for-nine from the foul line. Ian Krishnan also had 12 points, and Thompson finished with 11 points on three 3-balls and one field goal.

   The Falcons were led by senior Stephan Lang who had 16 points on four three-pointers, two foul shots, and a bucket. David Esser also contributed 10 points for the Falcons.

   Clarksburg improves to 8-6 on the season and will face a big task as they will host the high-flying Seneca Valley Eagles on Wednesday night. Seneca Valley is 13-1, and coming off an 87-57 victory over Gaithersburg on Monday night.

   Seneca Valley was led by Brandon Simpson who 17 points. Simpson was tough on defense with five blocks and pulled down eight rebounds for the Eagles. Trevon Lucas added 15 points, and Tyran Crawford contributed another 15 points for the victory. Seneca Valley will look to take down their third straight 4A team when they play Clarksburg on Wednesday.
