Simply put, it was probably the best high school football game the D.C. area has seen in decades. It had everything; speed, talent, execution and skill.
Here’s what Stags Head Coach Elijah Brooks had to say about the win:
This was another great battle against Good Counsel that went down to the wire. Our offense struggled in the first half and didn’t find our rhythm until late in the game. Defensively we were stout against the run but gave up some big plays in the pass game. Ultimately, we needed everyone to make plays down the stretch to make it to the WCAC championship. This time of year, we don’t care about style points as long as we advance. We have to refocus and have a solid week of practice to prepare against a very good St. John’s team.
DeMatha came out on top 29-28 in overtime over Good Counsel in a game few will ever forget. Our friends at DC Sports Fan captured some of the action, and stay tuned for much more coverage of the semifinal win and a preview of the championship game against St. Johns.
