The Northwest Jaguars are moving onto the class 4A state semifinals after a close game against the Quince Orchard Cougars Friday night. The final score 50-40.

This is the third year in a row the Jags won at Quince Orchard and advanced in the playoffs.

The game was a nail biter till the end. The Cougars started off strong scoring the first touchdown of the game, but the Jags kept the pressure on. By halftime the game was tied 21-21.

The Cougars put up a good fight in the second half, but the Jags took the lead towards the end of the fourth quarter. An interception in the last minutes of the game sealed the Jags win.

Videographer Paul Flickinger captured game highlights from the sideline. Take a look:

State semifinals will be hosted Nov. 27-28. According to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association, “Semifinalists will be re-seeded by their regular-season point average. The teams with the higher seeds will host the semifinal games.”
