Wootton’s Final Game of 2014 Season at Quince Orchard

Quince Orchard knew they were headed to next week’s playoffs while visiting Wootton knew they were playing their final game of 2014. Running back Kyle Green scored 4 out of 6 touchdowns for QO, but there wasn’t a running clock until late in the 2nd half and no time was ever wasted. Wootton’s offense did QO’s starters a big favor by giving them opportunities to defend against a prolific passing game.

Wootton quarterback Sam Ellis had famously passed for 557 yards against Rockville in 2013, setting the Maryland State record for passing yards in a single game. In his final high school game, Ellis threw for 200 yards and scored a touchdown against Quince Orchard, the #1 seed in MoCo’s 4A West playoff region. Some young fans on the Quince Orchard side regretted that Ellis was a senior because they will miss watching him in action. “Their quarterback is really good,” a middle schooler commented. “He’s a senior. But maybe he’ll play somewhere next year. This shouldn’t be his last game.”

Final Score: Quince Orchard 42 – Wootton 14

Scores for QO: Kyle Green – 4 TD’s, Marqell Broxton – 1 TD, Greg Williams – 1 TD, Troy Porter – 6 extra points.

Scores for Wootton: Malcolm Amobi – 1TD, Sam Ellis – 1 TD, Sanjay Krishnan – 2 extra points.
