Gaithersburg/Northwest High School Football Game Called Off Following Altercation Between the Teams

by MCS Staff

Police were called to Gaithersburg High School at approximately 8:23 p.m. for a fight between the two football teams (video below). Additional units were requested for crowd control and dispersal.

One person was arrested that was in possession of a knife. We don’t have information on whether that person is a juvenile or adult. The game was cancelled and police are working right now to make sure people are leaving the area. We’ll have additional information as soon as it’s available.

I remember 30 years ago Gaithersburg, north of King Farm was actually “snooty” not nearly as developed as it is now, certainly not chock full of section 8 housing.
