Location: Montgomery Blair High School
The annual St. John’s and Gonzaga football game is one of the biggest rivalries in all of Washington D.C., with some of the best athletes in the city. The game had to be held at nearby Montgomery Blair High School so that all of the fans would be able to fit; even though there were many fans watching on from outside the sold-out stadium. Fans from both schools came to the game with heavy hearts as a student from Gonzaga HS had lost his life in a car accident the previous week. There was a moment of silence that took place after the National Anthem and all of the boys from Gonzaga wore tribute shirts for their classmate.
St. John's :17
With a spot in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference football playoffs up for grabs, both teams came out with high intensity. St. John’s went into halftime with a 17-6 lead over their rival and looked good as many of Gonzaga’s offensive players left the game with injuries. Gonzaga came out in the second half fired up, however, and rallied by scoring two touchdowns on the ground to give them a 20-17 win.
