Jaguars run away with the game in the second half, claim playoff berth.
Richard Montgomery took an early second quarter lead, but eventually was left in the dust of an offensive explosion, falling 54-20 to Northwest in a high school football clash with playoff implications on Friday in Rockville. The Jaguars are in the playoffs, thier 7-3 (4-1 in 4A West) finish earning them the No. 2 seed in the 4A division.

There's plenty of baseball yet to be played, but for the first time ever, a Nationals-Orioles World Series is a real possibility.
It's been 15 years since the Baltimore-Washington area fielded a Major League Baseball team with a winning record, let alone sent one to the postseason.

The Nationals' shining moment came 10 days earlier as Washington closed the deal on a postseason berth with a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. This year marks just the second time the organization has made the playoffs and its…

Undefeated Quince Orchard begins its quest for a state title at home against Bethesda-Chevy Chase.
With last week's 48-0 win over Magruder, Quince Orchard High School completed its second undefeated regular season in the last three years. Tonight against Bethesda Chevy-Chase, the Cougars second season begins.
