Colonels' Garland Owens scores 24 points as Patriots season ends on a down note.
During the first half of Thursday's playoff game at Magruder, the Wootton Patriots were bending but refused to break. Down just 13 midway through the game, Wootton seemed determined to make the top-seeded Colonels earn their way to the regional finals. But an ‘alley-oop’ dunk from J.J. Epps to Garland Owens on the very first play of the second half set the tone for what would turn into the Patriots' most lopsided loss of the season. From that play forward, Magruder was in complete control. Backed by a 24-point performance from Owens, including two additional alley-oop dunks in the second half, the Magruder Colonels blasted the visiting Wootton Patriots, 82-40, to advance to the Maryland 4A West regional finals Saturday afternoon against …

Rockets advance to 4-4 on the season, while Magruder slips to 1-7.
The Richard Montgomery football team started off slowly Friday night, but had a strong second half to beat Magruder 14-3. Coming off of a rough loss to undefeated Quince Orchard, Richard Montgomery made a few mistakes early in the game. They were shut out in the first half, largely due to two fumbles that Magruder was able to recover. The Colonels scored late in the second quarter with a field goal to take the lead at halftime. “We didn't have much to say at halftime,” RM coach Neal Owens said. “We just wanted them to go out and play like we knew they could.” Offensively, quarterback Steven Burchett took control in the second half. The option started to help move the ball downfield, and on the first drive after halftime, Burchett faked a …

Warriors pull off upset in rivalry game.
The boys basketball rivalry game between Magruder and Sherwood started the same way the first matchup did: A completely packed house and two student sections standing and cheering. The game Friday night ended in a very different way though. Sherwood avenged their loss from earlier in the season, pulling off a 57-53 upset, and getting their second upset in as many games after also beating Springbrook on Tuesday. Magruder picked up their second loss of the season despite getting a great game from sophomore guard Nick Griffin, who scored 23 points, 18 of them from behind the arc. “He was the only guy carrying us on offense,” coach Dan Harwood said after the game. “It's hard to win with just one guy. We've been doing well when we have three or…

Woodhouse free throws in final seconds of OT help hand Springbrook its first in-county loss in nearly three years
Over the course of the past decade Springbrook and Magruder have been among Montgomery County's top boys basketball programs. Since 2000, the teams have combined for four state championships and countless regional titles. The Colonels won a state title in 2001 while the Blue Devils are the three-time defending Maryland 4A state champions. Wednesday night in Silver Spring, the teams met on the hardwood for the first time this season and Magruder became the first Montgomery County team in nearly three years to beat Springbrook.

Magruder boys soccer faces Urbana in the state final on Thursday at UMBC
After each playoff game, the Magruder High School boys soccer team held up fingers representing how many more games they needed to win to capture a state championship. After Saturday's win over Severna Park, players held up just one finger. The Colonels (15-1-2) will play Urbana High for the Maryland 4A state championship at 5 p.m. on Thursday at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Magruder last won the title in 2007, with a 5-1 victory over Perry Hall. The seniors on this year's team remember that game. Senior goalkeeper Torsten Meuschke drew comparisons between the leadership on this year's team and that of the '07 Colonels. "This year we have a lot of senior leadership," Meuschke said. "Everything has been clicking now. We …

Dulaney downs Colonels on strength of five goals from George
Dulaney High School seniors Sarah George and Abby Sprinkel stepped up big in the Class 4A state field hockey semifinal against Magruder High School. "We came out faster and stronger and were prepared before the game. We just took them with positioning and being quick," said George, whose five goals led the Lions to a 7-0 victory on a chilly Wednesday night at Franklin High School in Reisterstown. Dulaney, of Timonium, will face powerhouse Westminster High School (18-0) for the 4A state championship at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at Washington College in Chestertown.
