The seniors playing for the Washington County Northstars may want to forget their final regular-season home game, a 3-1 loss on Monday to MSHL Monocacy Valley Conference opponent Carroll County. Carroll County wasted no time taking the game to the Northstars (9-3-1), scoring less than five minutes into the game. Tyler Swope squeaked a top-shelf wrister by goalie Jeremy Benda to put Carroll County (6-4-2) on the board. Less than two minutes later, Eric Samuels scored his 15th goal of the season for Carroll County, redirecting a pass from Ian Cleary right under Benda.

Call this a classic trap game. The Washington County Northstars, judging by records alone, should have won Monday's game against Carroll County. But it didn't work out that way as Carroll County prevailed 3-2 at the Hagerstown Ice & Sports Complex. Washington County (9-2-1) entered the game hoping to take sole possession of first place in the Monocacy Valley division of the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League after Thomas Johnson lost to Oakdale last week.

Thanksgiving Day. Hard to believe we've reached this day on the calendar already, isn't it? To say that 2011 has flown by would be an understatement. It's been a blur. And with the holidays upon us, it certainly won't slow down between now and the start of 2012. So, the standard fare for a Thanksgiving column is to hit the pause button and reflect on the things for which we are thankful. I'd like to go a slightly different direction this year, instead looking ahead to things for which I will be thankful, should they ever come to fruition.

“The county has its priorities all mixed up, giving Hagerstown back $400,000 a year for something that they contributed to in regard to the stadium project, and also cutting the nursing program from the schools, the nurse program. What they need to do is forget about the stadium, take that $400,000 per year that the county was going to give back to Hagerstown, and fund the nurse program within the schools with that $400,000. The stadium is a luxury.” - Washington County “What's wrong with the politicians around here?

U.S. Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., of Maryland's 6th District was among the speakers at Saturday's event. Delaney defeated longtime Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett in the November 2012 general election for the seat representing Western Maryland.
