The Manchester Valley football team found out early that the postgame bus ride would be a long one. Boonsboro (2-0) established control early by dominating the line of scrimmage and rumbled to a 48-0 victory Friday night. What little doubt may have remained as to the ultimate outcome was put to rest late in the first half, when Reiker Bowles intercepted a Mavericks pass on the Boonsboro 3-yard line and sprinted 97 yards down the right sideline virtually untouched behind a wall of blockers for a 35-0 lead at the intermission.

Boonsboro earned a 52-48 win over Manchester Valley in coach Sam Connelly's first  game as the varsity girls coach on Monday, withstanding a late challenge to hold off the Mavericks. “It's fun.

Mikey Sensenbaugh spent many a fall Friday laying back on defense, just looking for a pick-6. You know, that interception that not only scores a touchdown but changes the momentum of a football game. On a winter Saturday, the intentions were about the same, but Sensenbaugh was happy enough to settle for a pair of pick-2s. Sensenbaugh made a pair of critical steals on consecutive possessions just 1 1/2 minutes into the game to give Clear Spring two layups that effectively turned the tide and sent the Blazers to a convincing 73-41 victory over Manchester Valley in the Maryland Class 1A West Region East Section quarterfinals.

Skip Chambers is hoping it doesn't take four more years for his Boonsboro boys basketball team to win another playoff game. While the 41-33 win over Manchester Valley in the Maryland Class 1A West region East sectional quarterfinal Tuesday night wasn't a thing of beauty, the Warriors coach sees it as a step in the right direction, snapping a playoff losing streak that dates back to 2009. “It's been a while since we've won a playoff game,” said Chambers. “We're getting better.

The Williamsport girls soccer team was knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten on Tuesday, falling to Manchester Valley 2-0. The game started as a defensive struggle as with a scoreless first half. The two teams unloaded a combined three shots in the first 40 minutes. “In the first half, we came out with a lot of energy and we were holding our own against (Manchester Valley),” said Williamsport coach Tim Salvagno. “But in the second half, they just plugged the holes and we didn't.” The Mavericks used a short burst to put the game out of reach.

The Boonsboro softball team didn't fall victim to the long ball Thursday afternoon. Instead, Manchester Valley used its short game - the bunt - and the Warriors' corresponding difficulty in defending it to its advantage. Boonsboro made throwing errors on three of the Mavericks' four bunts, helping Manchester Valley to a 9-2 win in the Maryland Class 1A West Region East Section quarterfinals. The fifth-seeded Mavericks (7-11) will play at top-seeded Smithsburg in the section semifinal game on Monday.

Lacrosse The MPSSAA boys and girls playoff draws will be held Monday, with regional action starting on Wednesday. At 10-1 through Wednesday, North Hagerstown's girls have by far the best record among Washington County teams, and still have a shot at the No. 1 seed in Class 3A/2A West - although unbeaten Damascus (10-0) is the front-runner. The Hubs are one of four very good teams in the region, along with Damascus, Century (11-2) and Middletown (9-2). Middletown has been a thorn in North's side, beating the Hubs twice last year - including in the 2012 3A/2A West quarterfinals - and again earlier this season, North's only loss.

For the Boonsboro girls, it's been since 1995. For the Williamsport boys, it's been even longer - 1975. And for the Boonsboro boys, it's never happened at all. But they all have reason to believe that the title runs will happen for them Saturday, as they try to capture the elusive team crowns at the Maryland State Cross Country Championships on Hereford High School's infamously hilly 3-mile course. Boonsboro, which will compete in Class 1A, will try to become the first Washington County school to win both girls and boys titles in the same year.
