Aberdeen routs Joppatowne

October 13, 1990|By Rich Scherr

Joe Gordon and Demont Blackman rushed for two touchdowns each, as eleventh-ranked and host Aberdeen routed Joppatowne, 33-0, in a Harford County League game.

The Eagles (5-1, 3-1) ran at will against the Mariners' defense, previously the best in Harford County and have now outscored opponents, 133-0, over the last three games.

Meanwhile, Joppatowne's offense never found its footing on the slick field. The Mariners (5-1, 3-1) had just 17 yards total offense and only three first downs.

"We came ready to play," said Aberdeen coach Macon Tucker. "By playing good defense, we kept our hopes alive for a county title."

Aberdeen's first score was set up by a fumble. On a Joppatowne first-and-14 at its own 5-yard line, Kilo Mack fumbled a handoff and the Eagles' Keith Davis recovered at the 2.

On the next play, Aberdeen made it 6-0 as Gordon (11 carries for 105 yards) plunged through the right side with 7 minutes, 26 seconds left in the quarter. Tori Gasdia added the point after to make it 7-0.

"The hole was gaping," said Gordon. "The line made it easy."

The Eagles then made it 13-0 with 31 seconds left in the half. Blackman (3 carries, 111 yards) capped an eight-play, 49-yard drive with a 2-yard sprint to the far corner of the end zone. Gasdis added the point to make it 14-0.

Blackman scored again shortly after halftime. He took the handoff, cut outside and raced 69 yards untouched for the touchdown with 8:41 left in the third period. Gasdia's point gave Aberdeen a 21-0 lead.
