Chesapeake defeats Towson behind King's 4 TDs, 34-12

November 01, 1991|By Rich Scherr

Chesapeake's Lamar King ran and kicked his way to 26 of his team's 34 points in the Bayhawks' 34-12 win over Towson last night at Dundalk Community College.

King, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, scored on touchdown runs of 1 yard, 2 yards, 3 yards and 10 yards, and added a pair of extra points in helping the Chesapeake offense to dominate the Generals.

"This was the best game I've played all season, offensively and defensively," said King, who had 27 carries for 108 yards. "Our line just blocked really well and opened up the holes."

King led a Bayhawks (7-2 overall, 6-2 in the Baltimore County 2A-1A league) offense that racked up 263 yards rushing on the night. Though most of his runs were for just a few yards, he often dragged several Towson defenders along for the ride.

Said Chesapeake coach Ken Johnson: "Lamar is starting to realize just what he is, and he's peaking at just the right time. At the end of the first quarter, we decided to let him have the ball at least 25 times."

Chesapeake started the game with a 17-play, 11-minute drive in which it gained 61 yards on the ground.
