SILVER SPRING - Springbrook did nothing out of the ordinary, said Severna Park coach Andy Borland, so it was a matter of his Falcons' inability to stop the expected.
Forced to the outside when Severna Park took away its signature belly series, top-seeded Springbrook, No. 1 in The Washington Post's D.C. area rankings, used speed and quickness to run right past the The Sun's No. 8 Falcons, 34-3, in yesterday's state 4A quarterfinal playoff game. Springbrook will play host to Wootton in a semifinal game Saturday at 1 p.m.
tailback led Montgomery County with 1,301 yards and 22 touchdowns this season, and yesterday showed Sevema Park exactly why.
Green ran 28 times for 232 yards, caught four passes for 67 and scored all five of his team's touchdowns to account for the 31-point margin - one of Severna Park's worst losses in 31 years of football.
"There have been quicker kids at Springbrook, but things just seemed to happen around him. Maybe we made him look good." Said Borland, who was going for his 100th career victory. "They did everything we thought they'd do, but we couldn't play "D".
