Chuck Tinninis was a little concerned how his club would react after its meltdown in the season-opener at Chambersburg last week. But the Greencastle-Antrim football coach was all smiles after the Blue Devils throttled Boiling Springs on Friday night. “We didn't make any adjustments,” said Tinninis. “I just told them to suck it up, and they did.” Greencastle's defense was a big reason for the smiles, holding the Bubblers to just 79 yards of total offense, including minus-seven yards in the second half.

Fletcher Branch of the Washington County Free Library chimed the hour as it has for more than two centuries. “It seemed right for it to come back to Hagerstown,” Brumbaugh said. The Chambersburg, Pa., woman said the clock, which was built in Hagerstown, has been in her family at least a century. It now graces a corner of the John Clinton Frye Western Maryland Room, the repository for the rebuilt library's collection of rare books, records and other documents of the region.
