Recap from Steven Decarlo:
Terrence Caudle score three touchdowns and Springbrook had little trouble picking up big chunks of yardage on the ground as they easily defeated Gaithersburg 20-7. The Blue Devils had little trouble as they wove their way through the Trojans defense. On the Blue Devils opening possession it was all Caudle who ate up 47 yards on the ground on his way to a 3 yard touchdown run. A holding penalty kept Springbrook from extending their lead before the half when a reverse for a touchdown was called back for holding. Poor tackling, bad penalties and too many dropped passes doomed Gaithersburg. A Zach Keris 9 yard punt from out of his end zone gave Springbrook a very short field and Caudle scored his second touchdown of the game from 10 yards out to make it 12-0. Gaithersburg followed with their best offense series of the evening as Solomon Vault and Nick DeCarlo moved the Trojans the length of the field with big runs and clutch passes to cut the Springbrook lead to 12-7 early in the 4th quarter. Vault scored on a 4 Yard run, his 5th touchdown in two games. But Springbrook responded with an 80 yard drive helped by 30 yards in personal foul penalties on the Trojans Caudle scored his 3rd TD on the ground from 15 yards out.
