ST. CHARLES ' — ST. CHARLES -- Sherron Gudger scored two touchdowns to lead top-seeded McDonough of Charles County past Aberdeen, 26-12, in a Class 3A state quarterfinal game last night.
The victory extended the Rams' unbeaten string to 18 games and placed them a step closer to their second straight state championship. Gudger rushed for 140 yards on 20 carries, but the 5-foot-9, 175-pound breakaway artist found the going tough against the Aberdeen line. His two longest runs of the game were 20 and 28 yards.
Aberdeen's own backfield combination of Demont Blackmon and Demetrious Harris put on the more dazzling display of broken-field running.
Harris scored both Aberdeen touchdowns, one on a 25-yard run on a fourth-and-six play in the second quarter, and the other on a remarkable 48-yard run on a broken play with 6 minuts, 32 seconds remaining in the third quarter.
