BOONSBORO -- It wasn't pretty, but Boonsboro is still perfect.
The No. 3 Warriors survived lost fumbles and a rash of penalties Friday in a 38-22 MVAL Antietam Conference victory over Catoctin to reach 9-0 for the first time in school history.
"I was happy by the fact we beat a team with a winning record for the first time this year," Boonsboro coach Clayton Anders said. "They put 50 points up on us last year. We really needed this win to stay in the (playoff) hunt."
The Warriors, now 4-0 in the conference, lost four fumbles and were penalized 10 times for 105 yards.
Catoctin (5-4, 2-2) ran 77 offensive plays compared to 37 for Boonsboro and outrushed the Warriors, 280-149.
After Seth Poffenberger returned the opening kickoff 33 yards to the Warriors' 49, Tyler Walsh lost a fumble and Catoctin drove in for a score, with Nathan Lenhart going in from the 1.
