Watkins Mill Wolverines varsity lost a hard fought battle to James Blake Hubert High School Bengals by a score of 15 to 16 at Gaithersburg High School Saturday, November 3. They played well and fought hard until the very end. ‘Rines were up 15 to 3 but unfortunately fell short with 13 unanswered points from the Bengals. Senior De’Jion Martin had a great game, recording two interceptions on the night.

“I think we improved a lot from the start of the season to the end of the season… but unfortunately we didn’t end the way we wanted to because of little mistakes and a few bad play-calls,” junior Caleb Obiarinze Mbulle said.

The ‘Rines finished the season with a record of seven wins and three losses.

Thanks to Head Coach Mike Brown and the rest of the coaching staff and ‘Rines varsity football team for a fantastic season. Go ‘Rines!
