Catoctin girls basketball coach Amy Entwistle came into Friday's MVAL Antietam game at North Hagerstown with two messages for her team. “I told them two things: 'Don't sweat the small stuff and do the little things,'” Entwistle said. Those “little things” added up to a big 51-42 win for the Cougars, who are sitting atop the MVAL Antietam with a 9-1 conference record (11-5 overall). Both teams got off to a slow start in the first quarter, shooting a combined 6-for-31.

Carlton Davis has never been the kind of basketball player at South Hagerstown who is going to be an offensive headliner game after game. In his third varsity season - and his second in a starting role - the 5-foot-9 senior guard just goes out on a daily basis and does his job, which mainly consists of playing in-your-face defense. On Friday, Davis made an impact on the other side of the court, as he scored a career-high 17 points to lead the Rebels to a 92-41 victory over Catoctin in an MVAL Antietam Conference wipeout.

The North Hagerstown boys basketball team got its first victory of the season Tuesday night. It took the Hubs five tries to find the win column, but a 69-53 MVAL Antietam victory over Catoctin started North's five-game homestand off on the right foot. “I was happy to get the win,” North coach Kevin Hartman said. “We really wanted to get the 'W.' This was our first home game since our opener (on Dec. 7).” The Hubs didn't waste any time in taking the lead as they led 13-4 midway through the first quarter.

As wins go, Wednesday's victory for the Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team was one of five for the season. But it rated first in overall importance. In fact, it was branded Double X. The Hawks rolled out strong early defense and showed the depth of their roster as they overwhelmed Frederick 105-87 for the first major checkpoint of the season at the HCC athletic complex. “From my standpoint, this was a great win against a great team,” said HCC coach Barry Brown.

The Clear Spring Blazers ran into a buzzsaw in the form of the undefeated East Hardy Cougars, who used a strong running performance by Dustin Hinkle to defeat Clear Spring 35-14 on Friday night. The Cougars (8-0) wasted no time, as they took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. East Hardy's defense got to punter Sam Elwood before he could get a punt off, setting themselves up at Clear Spring's 32-yard line. Hinkle busted up the gut for 24 yards, and quarterback Kollin Foltz capped the drive with an 8-yard TD run. The Cougars forced a fumble by Clear Spring quarterback Adam Mellott on Clear Spring's next possession, returning it back to the 30. Hinkle needed one touch to get the ball back in the end zone.

One may ask, “How can Phillip Butler top his 297-yard, three-touchdown performance last week against Smithsburg?” The answer to the beckoning question proved quite simple: Just run for 323 yards and five touchdowns. That's what Butler did Friday night against Catoctin, as his video game-like performance lifted North Hagerstown over the Cougars 41-28 in an MVAL Antietam game. Butler had touchdown runs of 59, 20, and 88 yards and added two 5-yard scores. He amassed 255 yards on 20 carries and scored four times in the first half alone before adding 68 yards and a touchdown in the second half.

The South Hagerstown football team found out that coach Toby Peer is pretty easy to shop for, after all. All the Rebels had to do was win. South's defense boxed up Catoctin and Isiaha Smith wrapped it all up with a bow to give the Rebels' coach a birthday present he promises he won't soon forget. Smith came out of the shadows to assume a starting role and rushed 26 times for 158 yards and three touchdowns, starting the celebration rolling with a 20-6 victory over the Cougars.

Once again, the Boonsboro Warriors had their backs to the wall. Once again, they came through. Down 27-20 in the third quarter, the Warriors kept an unbeaten season alive with a 39-33 victory over Catoctin on Thursday night in an MVAL Antietam thriller. “We've been behind a lot this season,” said Boonsboro coach Clayton Anders. “We've got a bunch of kids here that won't quit. They've got heart and will and have done it with hard work.” After a simple first half in which Boonsboro led 14-6, the rest of the night became a back-and-forth affair, including Catoctin's third-quarter offensive explosion for three touchdowns, which gave the appearance the Cougars (3-3, 2-1)

The field conditions were the same for both teams on a cruddy Saturday night. Catoctin made the most of Smithsburg's bobbles, blunders and blown opportunities and thwarted the Leopards 31-0 in an MVAL Antietam clash originally scheduled for Friday night in what would have been better conditions than Saturday. The Leopards (2-3, 0-2) had early opportunities, even after Catoctin took the opening kickoff and went 66 yards for an early 6-0 lead when Collin Schildt ran 19 yards for a score with a second effort at the 9:07 mark.
