One way football coaches categorize football players - according to Boonsboro's Clayton Anders - is whether they have a motor. Count Warriors defensive end J.R. Lowery in that group. “He definitely has that,” Anders said of Lowery. “He's relentless. He just has the relentless spirit within him that he's going to wear people out.” Lowery wore out opposing offenses in 2011, leading Washington County in tackles and tackles for losses and helping elevate Boonsboro from also-rans a year ago back into the playoffs.

MAUGANSVILLE -- At least Hancock had the good feeling of qualifying for the Maryland State Junior League Tournament. Hancock's quick turnaround into the losers' bracket didn't come out any better on Monday after its opening 10-0 loss to Thurmont a day earlier. It didn't take long to realize the end was near. West Salisbury pummeled Hancock for nine runs in the first inning and went on to a 17-1 victory in 4 1/2 innings at Maugansville. That eliminated Hancock and moved West Salisbury into a key matchup against Elkton, an easy winner over South Baltimore, tonight at 5:30.
