Varsity football is excited to keep the win streak going as they take on the Poolesville Falcons September 30 at home after a 28-7 win against the Magruder Colonels.

The ‘Rines took care of business Friday night as they played with confidence and swag that resulted in a win. The Den was packed with fans who screamed and cheered until the final whistle, while the team came out and played strong football in the opening minutes, setting the tone for the rest of the game.

Lockdown junior cornerback Jordan Blackman said, “We feel great, there’s nothing better than putting on a show and getting a win in front of your home crowd.” Blackman made several big plays on defense to stump the Magruder offense from gaining positive yards.

The team continued their peaceful protest for a third consecutive week as they knelt during the anthem. Though the team has knelt before, this was the first time they did it in the Den at Watkins Mill. Fans followed their lead and knelt or sat down during the anthem as well.

Senior linebacker Steven Mendez said, “I feel that we played extremely well as a team. We all knew what we had to do and that showed on the field.” Mendez helped hold Magruder to zero points for three quarters on the game, but eventually allowed only seven. He did this with the help of defensive lineman Nigel Duberry. Duberry has been an offensive line nightmare all season and continued to wreak havoc on Friday night.

As for Poolesville, Duberry kept the game plan short and sweet. “Our goal is to win the game.” The ‘Rines are ready for the task in front of them as they will play the Falcons in Poolesville on Friday. “We are pumped for this game against Poolesville because it’s their Homecoming game and we want to beat them on their special night,” Mendez added.

“Hopefully we can carry the intensity into next week’s game against Poolesville and pull out the dub,” Blackman added.  The Wolverines are ready to get their third win of the season and play another great game in front of great fans. All of Orange Nation should come out and watch our boys clip the wings of the Falcons Friday night at 7pm.
