MIDDLETOWN - While it started out "ugly," according to Westminster football coach Brad Wilson, the end result of Friday night's season opener at Frederick County power Middletown couldn't have been more satisfying. Junior quarterback Chris Lang threw for 137 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, but it was the Owls' strong defensive performance in the second half that led to a 21-19 victory against the Knights, ending the program's 36-game winning streak. "You want to talk about poise, and character … that's what describes these kids," said Wilson.

MIDDLETOWN — By the time Edmondson made its initial first down, Middletown had already scored two touchdowns. That put the Red Storm in a hole it couldn't climb out of in Friday night's Class 2A state semifinal. Edmondson didn't make a first down until early in the second quarter, and host Middletown took advantage of good field position from short punts and turnovers to jump in front quickly and pull away for a 48-8 victory. The Knights (12-1) will face Frederick Douglass for the state title next week at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Middletown mantra this season was the ground and pound offense, wearing teams down while rushing for 243 yards per game and beating opponents by an average of 33 points. That formula had led the Knights to a 35-game win streak and two consecutive state titles entering Saturday's state Class 2A football championship. But it was the passing game that led Middletown to a 17-3 win over Calvert County's Patuxent Panthers, earning the Knights yet another 2A title. Knights quarterback Tim Pirrone completed 10-of-15 passes for 102 yards, exploiting the Panthers on multiple play-action passes for pivotal third-down conversions and the team's first quarter touchdown.

It took an incredible goal from the defending state champions in the closing minutes of the Class 2A final for Southern-AA to finally fall in a breakthrough season. Moments after missing on an open net, Middletown senior forward Kelly Hohl made no mistake with a quick second chance - scoring from 16 yards with 6:56 to play to give the Knights from Frederick County a 1-0 win over Southern for their sixth state championship. Hohl collected a ball on the left side and neatly found the upper-right corner for the game-winner.

Zach Welch ran for three touchdowns and kicked a field goal to lead Middletown to its first state football championship in a 43-6 romp over Douglass, of Prince George's County, for the Class 2A title Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium. The Knights (13-1) had been to the state tournament 18 times without winning a title, including last year's 21-14 loss to McDonogh in the final, but Saturday, they jumped on the Eagles for the first 16 points. The Eagles (10-3) pulled within 16-6 on Taitor Reynolds' 29-yard touchdown pass to Emmanuel Smith with 28 seconds left in the first half, but the Knights scored just over a minute into the second half on Ben Lewis' 53-yard run. Welch ran for 172 yards on 24 carries as the Knights rushed for 335 yards.

Westminster's offense had a whole new look in its season opener against Middletown on Friday night. Sure, the No. 7 Owls passed the ball, but just about all the players were new to the starting lineup - and it showed. The Owls moved the ball well at times with first-year starting quarterback Duke Etchison taking over, but they were too inconsistent and picked up too many untimely penalties to score enough points to beat two-time defending state Class 2A champion Middletown, which went home to Frederick County with a 19-14 victory.

Randallstown girls basketball coach Ron Isaacs called his team "the Cinderella team" of the state Class 2A state semifinals, but the Rams did not have a great time at the ball. Isaacs' youngsters stuck close for a while before Middletown's combination of outside shooting and inside strength overwhelmed them and powered the Knights to a 60-27 victory at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Rams (22-7) had their only leads in the first quarter. Mariah Byam's follow shot and Essence Stinnette's free throw gave them a 9-8 edge, but that would be their last lead as Middletown scored 12 straight points.

A year ago, Devin Butler sat in a purple seat at M&T Bank Stadium and watched Frederick Douglass of Prince George's County fall to Middletown in the Class 2A football state championship. On Saturday, the freshman quarterback was on the field with the same stakes, battling the Knights in an attempt to land the first state title for Douglass. On the state's largest stage, Butler alternated flashes of brilliance with reminders of his youth in a 30-12 loss to Middletown. Douglass fell behind Middletown, 16-0, and couldn't recover as the Knights beat the Eagles in the title game for the second straight season, closing out their first perfect campaign with their 22nd straight victory.
