The Boonsboro football team followed coach Clayton Anders' simple philosophy. “I learned in my very first game, it's not who scores first, it's who scores most,” Anders said. After a slow start, it didn't hurt to score last, too. The Warriors spotted Manchester Valley the first 14 points in the first six minutes and then used the last 57 for their own personal playground in a 57-14 victory on Saturday at McDaniel College. Boonsboro (1-1) ran up 455 yards of offense. John Rice led the way by scoring four touchdowns - three rushing and one on a 32-yard catch on the last play of the first half.

Skip Chambers saw the perfect storm approaching, but was helpless to do anything about it. The Boonsboro boys basketball coach knew Smithsburg would apply relentless defensive pressure, but without a point guard, all Chambers could do was watch as his club turned the ball over 31 times in a 68-40 MVAL Antietam loss Tuesday. “It's all about pressure, and it's all about trapping when you can,” said Leopards coach Eric Gerber. “That's the way we play this year, and we have the quickness to do that.

Tori Poffenberger proved the number of points one scores is not as important as when the points are scored. The Boonsboro senior only put four points on the board, but they came at critical times, as the Warriors clipped county rival Smithsburg 45-42 in an MVAL Antietam girls basketball game Friday night. With the Leopards (5-5, 4-3) clinging to a one-point lead with 21 seconds left in the game, Poffenberger broke free of the Smithsburg defense and hit an easy transition bucket to give the Warriors (7-7, 4-4)
