Northwest hands Richard Montgomery first loss of the season

The Richard Montgomery Rockets started to take off in the 3rd quarter. But by then, the Northwest Jaguars had already scored 29 unanswered points, thrilling their devoted Homecoming crowd that had waited out the 90 minute game delaying lightning storm. This was the first loss of the season for Richard Montgomery, but there is no shame in losing to Northwest, a team that has won the last two Maryland 4A State Championships in a row.

The RM Rockets have an away game at Poolesville, Thursday, October 15th at 7:00 pm. Northwest travels a short distance to Quince Orchard, for what promises to be another exciting match-up, on Friday, October 16th at 6:30 pm. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this week.

Final Score Northwest 29 Richard Montgomery 12
