Seneca Downs Damascus

The Seneca Valley boys’ basketball team completed the season sweep of long-time rival Damascus with an 85-54 victory on Friday night, to extend the Screamin’ Eagle’s win-streak to 11, and improve to 17-1 on the season, and remain unbeaten against Montgomery County opponents in regular season play.

Both teams started slow, with both teams scoring in the single-digits in the first quarter. The Hornets took a small lead 9-7 after the first quarter. Seneca looked a bit sluggish in the early going. While the signature Seneca defense gave Damascus issues, the offense seemed unable to click, missing passes and allowing unforced errors.

However, Seneca Valley was able to find their grove in the second and outscored Damascus 21-11 in the second quarter to take a 28-20 lead into halftime.

The Eagles had three players in double-digits scoring. Senior Brandon Simpson led all scorers with 34 points, on two 3-balls, 10 field goals, and he shot eight-for-ten from the foul line. Simpson also had eight rebounds. Kareem Matthew added 13 points, including two from beyond the arc, and Tyran Crawford had 12 points.

The Hornets were led by junior Mason Green, who put up 15 points, one 3-ball, two field goals. He shot 10-for-13 from the foul line. Senior Garrett Brown added nine points in the loss.

The Eagles will take their 11 game streak on the road to meet 6-10

Poolesville tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 7), while the Hornets will hope to end the 11-game skid with a game against 7-11 Watkins Mill. Seneca Valley may face a test later in the week as they host the 9-10 Blake Bengals on Friday night in Germantown.
