In a contest between two Southern Maryland Athletic Conference football teams accustomed to being on opposite ends of the spectrum, North Point topped Leonardtown last Friday night in a 4A/3A East Region opening round game, 34-21, on the Eagles’ impromptu senior night.

North Point (6-3) earned the right to face top seed Severna Park in a region semifinal this Friday, Nov. 12, while Leonardtown delivered a gritty effort in defeat in the first playoff game in program history. In a bizarre scoring sequence, North Point posted the game’s first 34 points, while Leonardtown responded with 21 points in the last 152 seconds of play.
