Defense-minded Cougars blank Prospect Hall, 4-0 By ADELINE STAEBLER / Staff Correspondent THURMONT, Md. - Catoctin boys soccer coach Jack Bentley tried a new formation to build up his defense against St. John's at Prospect Hall Tuesday night. The new formation was effective when used, but the offense proved more effective as Catoctin defeated the Vikings, 4-0. "We played a 3-4-3 (formation) tonight and I really wanted to control the midfield with our four midfielders," Bentley said.

bobp@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - If Brandon Monroe needs a nickname as a member of the St. John's-Prospect Hall football team, cast one vote for "Eraser. " First the Vikings' tailback rubbed out Bishop Walsh's defense on Friday. Then he took a few seconds to rub out the myths about the St. John's program. "We are not just a first-year program," Monroe said with ice-cold conviction. "We are better than that. " Forget the first year. Try the first week. St. John's celebrated its coronation into high school football-dom by scoring 39 points in the first 24 minutes the Vikings ever played and held on for a 39-29 victory in the school's gridiron debut at McCurdy Field.

bobp@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - St. John's at Prospect Hall is a school with a history. But for 172 years, the private school in Frederick only worked on six-day weeks. It didn't have any "Friday night" history to speak of. Until now. With as much school spirit and pageantry as one school can have in trying to celebrate something it never experienced before, the Vikings stuck a toe in the icy waters of high school football ... and then dived in in cannonball fashion to cause some real waves.
