Warriors clip Cougars' wing



By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent


BOONSBORO - Boonsboro football coach Clayton Anders was concerned about Catoctin's double wing offense before their Saturday matchup.

But the Warriors spent the week sharpening their own defense and defeated the Cougars 28-14 in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League.

"We've had a tough time with their offensive scheme for several years, ever since they went to the tight double wing set," Anders said. "It always seems to have problems for us because we only see it once a year."

Boonsboro (3-3, 3-2) held Catoctin scoreless until the final two minutes of the game.

Down 6-0 early in the second half, Catoctin (2-4, 2-3) drove all the way to the Boonsboro 5-yard line before Adam Miller took the ball from running back Aaron Venables to give the Warriors possession.

Boonsboro capitalized when Zach Yinger ran 26 yards for a touchdown. Chris Winpigler added the extra point for a 14-0 Warriors lead.

"(Miller) stripped the ball carrier and comes running out of the pack with the ball," Anders said. "That was one of the big plays because we took that, went down and scored and made it 14-0. Then the momentum shifted a little bit and we got a margin that we were comfortable with."

Eddie Moten scored the second of his two touchdowns with about 2:30 left in the third quarter, going 43 yards to put the Warriors up 21-0. Moten got Boonsboro on the board in the first on a 13-yard TD pass from Chris Wright.

"(Moten's) been getting open all year and we made sure we looked there first and just got to Eddie and then he did the rest," Wright said.

Wright scored on a 2-yard quarterback keeper to give Boonsboro a commanding 28-0 lead in the fourth quarter.

Brad Nesbitt threw for the two late Cougars touchdowns, connecting with Ryan Nesbitt from 8 yards and Kevin favorite from 20 yards.

"(The touchdowns were) too little, too late. It didn't surprise me, it was just too little, too late," Catoctin coach Doug Williams said. "We had no trouble moving the ball, but when it counted we didn't cash in."

Moten had 20 carries for 139 yards to lead the Warriors. Wright passed for 69 yards.
