Football Advances to WCAC Finals, Will Face St. John’s

The Varsity Football team is headed to the WCAC Championship game!

The Eagles defeated Good Counsel in the WCAC Semifinal on Friday, November 10 in Olney, Marlyand. After falling to the Falcons in their regular season matchup on October 27, the team returned the favor with a 24-17 victory.
 
After a goal line stand, the Eagles took a 10-7 lead into halftime on a bitterly cold night. Tied 10-10 midway through the third quarter, Gonzaga would score the next two touchdownsone on a 65 yard pass from Caleb Williams '21 to Maguire DiLenge ’18, and one on a 18 yard run by Lucas Warfield ‘19. 

“Trivers’s word of the week to the group was ‘now,’ as in: focus on this game ‘now’ and worry about the legacy of this season later,” wrote the Washington Post.  Great performances were turned in by Warfield and Robbie Mangas ’18 on offense.  The defense was led by Joseph Wete ’19 and Jake Galli ’18. Hunter Stewart ’19 and Marco Kemp ’19 made great contributions on special teams. 
Here are some great photos from the win:
