DeMatha and Good Counsel have staged classic games for years, and the latest iteration was no different. The Falcons took the final lead with less than a minute to go in the game, giving Good Counsel a 21-14 win after a heroic comeback effort by the Stags to tie the game.
If history is any indication, DeMatha will face Good Counsel again, likely in the WCAC playoffs. Falcons coach Bob Milloy certainly thinks so.
“They’re a great team, and unfortunately we’re going to have to deal with them down the line,” Milloy said after his team’s win. “So it’s just an exciting exhibition game.”
Expect to hear from Stags head coach Elijah Brooks about his team’s effort against Good Counsel, and what lies ahead for DeMatha. Remember, there is a lot of football left.
