Following a highly controversial finish, the Wootton Patriots boys' varsity lacrosse team defeated the Churchill Bulldogs, 10-9, Wednesday night at the Rockville high school.
A "Rock-the-Vote" concert featuring Timeflies and Third Eye Blind will be held at Wootton's football stadium Saturday night.
Jennifer Taylor is a guidance counselor at Wootton High School with a tall order: organize a concert for Saturday night that would live up to the wildly successful show at the school in 2008.

It drew in close to 2,400 students, according to Taylor, who expects this year’s show, called “TUNED IN: Be the Voice That Rocks the World,” that will feature Third Eye Blind and Timeflies, to be another success. Tickets for Wootton students are $20 and for non-Wootton students they cost $25 on the …

However a clock malfunction led to the clock not stopping after the goal. After several minutes of confusion and ensuing discussion, the referee on the field instructed the clock operater in the booth to put…
