Churchill Comes Up Just Short in Championship Game

Churchill’s senior-laden team was one step away from a championship season. They fell just short in the 4A state championship game losing to Glen Burnie 43-40 at Xfinity Center in College Park.

The game, tied at 20-20 at halftime, was close throughout. The Bulldogs led 33-26 in the fourth quarter but Glen Burnie ended the game on a 17-7 run that was difference.

Dillan George, one of seven seniors on Churchill, led all scorers with 20 points. Amourie Porter led Glen Burnie with 18 points.

“Legacy wise, they’re one of the best classes to come to Churchill,” Churchill girls basketball head coach Pete McMahon told DCNewsNow. “Even though they missed one of the seasons with COVID, I think their three-year record is 67-9. I mean it’s just a great group of girls and they have a lot to proud of. I’m proud of them.”
