WALKERSVILLE, Md. -- Smithsburg coach Buddy Orndorff insisted Friday night that he has one of the best tailbacks in the area in senior Ben Daniels. Obviously, Walkersville falls outside of what Orndorff considers the "area. " The Lions held Daniels to 19 yards on 14 carries -- less than 1.4 yards per carry -- while their workhorse Quentin Ezell racked up 168 yards and two touchdowns as Walkersville rumbled to a 46-7 victory in its home opener. "(Daniels) got hit by everybody except the waterboy," Orndorff said.

By MARK KELLER Staff Correspondent BOONSBORO - If the Boonsboro boys' basketball team can't beat a five-man, full-court press during a game, they'll have to try to get through a seven-man press during practice. That's what coach Curt Conway plans to do to help the Warriors after they committed 30 turnovers, most caused by an intense full-court defense by Walkersville, in a 57-48 loss to the Lions in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League game Tuesday night. "I'm going to put seven defenders out there, and if our offense can beat them, we should be able to get through the pressure in the game," Conway said.

Middletown girls blank Walkersville WALKERSVILLE, Md. - Sam Wilson doesn't have time to get flustered about missed opportunities. Pouting about the past just slows the chances for the next break that comes her way. continued Wilson didn't get down Monday when she missed on two gold-lined gifts in front of the net in the first half of Middletown's key Monocacy Valley Athletic League matchup with Walkersville. The third shot was the charm as she scored in front of the goal to break a scoreless tie to start a 4-0 rout of the Lions.

Ethan Foster got the first call offensively from scrimmage for Boonsboro to begin the 2013 season. He also scored the first touchdown in thrilling fashion. Foster went up the middle for a 93-yard touchdown run and it helped push the Warriors to a 25-15 victory over Walkersville. Welcome to 2A! Walkersville took the opening drive at its own 32 and reached the Boonsboro 7 before stalling on downs. With the change of possession, it was Boonsboro's turn and Foster got the call on what head coach Clayton Anders said afterward: “It's our No. 1 nuts and bolts play.” “That score was big momentum for us,” Anders said.
