Saturday's roundup - FSK upsets Middletown


UNION BRIDGE, Md. - What began as the same-old, same-old turned into the surprisingly unexpected Friday night.

Francis Scott Key watched Middletown turn an early interception into a touchdown, then scored the last 21 points of the game to turn in the biggest shocker in week 1 of the Monocacy Valley Athletic League, winning, 21-7.

"This is the first time that we didn't roll our eyeballs at them," FSK coach Mike Coons said. "We gave up that score, and then we got down to business."

The Eagles (2-0, 1-0) got a Brendan McDaniel touchdown to pull within one, then took the lead in the second quarter on a TD pass from Ryan Bordner to Tommy Fletcher for a 12-7 lead at halftime. And when Fletcher kicked a 28-yard field goal in the third, the Eagles knew fate may be on their side this time.


"We couldn't kick an extra point all night and then we get a field goal," Coons said. "You know you're doing something right."

Brad Stonesifer finished the scoring in the fourth quarter with another rushing touchdown, leaving FSK atop the league standings after two weeks.

"We're bigger and stronger than we have been in a while and we got a lot of breaks," Coons said. "We've taken some terrible thrashings from them in the past.

"For me to say we expected this is ... well, we knew we had a shot, we took it and we got it."
