HAGERSTOWN — South Hagerstown honored its seniors during Senior Night on Tuesday.

The celebration was all well and good, until the matchup with heated rival North Hagerstown started and the Hubs crashed the party with a dominating 19-6 MVAL Antietam victory.

“It’s a big rivalry and South’s really been improving and really gave us a fight last time,” said North coach Hammond Urner. “We’ve been working and working and the guys were up for today.”

The Hubs (6-5, 3-1) controlled the tempo from the start of the game and senior Drew Brooks was prepared for potentially his final game against the Rebels (3-7, 2-2) as he led North with six goals and three assists.

“Back when (South coach Dave Tallant) was our coach, he always told us to show no mercy and we wanted to put it on them pretty hard,” said Brooks.

“Basically, we just came together as a team and decided we wanted to stomp on them pretty good,” Brown said.

Mission accomplished.

Senior Brandon Brown scored 95 seconds into the game for North off an assist from Dylan Brown and the Hubs never let up. They led 6-1 after the opening quarter and 12-2 at the intermission.

Urner stressed that defense was a priority after the Hubs allowed 14 goals to South in their first meeting — a 17-14 North victory on April 16.

“We played good defense, which was a struggle the first time,” Urner said. “We’ve been working on defense and they’ve gotten better.”

Reed Jimenez added offensive production for the Hubs with four goals and Brandon Brown had a hat trick.

Tyler Bradshaw led the Rebels iwith two goals.
