HYATTSVILLE, Md. — DeMatha Catholic hosted Episcopal High School in a non-conference matchup that had communities on opposite sides of the DMV region excited for some high school football!
Episcopal traveled from Alexandria, Virginia, on Friday to Hyattsville, Maryland for its first game of the season. It was also the first game the Maroon (team mascot) played since the 2019 season due to COVID-19 canceling its 2020 season.
The game began at 7 p.m. EST. DeMatha football won 42-6.
For DeMatha (1-1), it was the team's third game of the season, but it was their first game at home after playing at a neutral site to start things off two weeks ago, then traveling to Philadelphia last week.
Washington Football star Chase Young arrived at the game on Friday to see his alma mater take on Episcopal.
Young, who became the 2020 NFL Rookie of the Year, was a standout defensive end for DeMatha Catholic before playing his college ball at Ohio State University.
