The Magruder Colonels traveled to the home of the Trojans of Gaithersburg, for the beginning half of the evenings varsity double-header. The Colonels begin the 1st quarter with great defense, #33 Joe Hugley had 4 blocks and the Trojans couldn’t break the Colonels 2-3 zone. End of 1st score Magruder 22-11. During the game there were two technical fouls called, one on Gaithersburg for knocking a player down, and for Magruder on the bench. Gaithersburg continues to score, but very slow. Going into the half it is Magruder 33- 26.
The Trojans are playing great defense, but the Colonels are flat-out too faster than the Trojans. The game seems a lot closer, but with the score at the end of the 3rd being Colonels 54-40, it really isn’t close at all. The Colonels come out with the same intensity as the last quarter, just raking in points. #5 Marquaine Wilkerson for The Colonels, gets a technical foul for clapping in opponent face, after the ref called a foul. With the game getting further out of reach, The Trojans are trying every little thing to get Magruder to fall out of the game.
Final Score Magruder 67-49 Gaithersburg
