Meanwhile coach Roy Brown's young defense was spectacular. After giving up 259 rushing yards in a season and home opening loss to 13th ranked Randallstown (2-0) by 18-16, the Panthers limited the usually prolific Kenny Walker of the Stangs to just 66 yards.
Howard completed 23 of 37 passes for 347 yards and five touchdowns as North County stayed unbeaten gearing up for this Friday's home encounter against Annapolis. The latter buried the Knights 33-7 last year.
"We had two other guys who had big nights (against Arundel) in Damon Martin and Mike Quarles," said Knights' coach Chuck Markiewicz.
Martin grabbed 10 passes for 168 yards and TDs of 46 and 30 yards while Quarles latched onto nine for 135 yards and three touchdowns in the "run and shoot" assault. Quarles scored on passing plays of 8, 9 and 55 yards.
'We're looking forward to playing Annapolis," said Markiewicz, whose team has waited one long year for this next one.
Broadneck's QB Alan Hartman didn't throw as much as he did the opening 20-7 loss to South River but instead turned Chuck Eaton loose for 92 yards and a TD on 30 carries. Hartman, who was 14 of 34 for 231 yards and one TD in the opener, came back with a 7-for-17, 186-yard and one touchdown effort in the 22-0 shellacking of Glen Burnie.
Coach Jeff Herrick's defense picked off four Glen Burnie passes including a 54-yard TD return by Bob Weatherly to notch its first win of the season and leave the Gophers winless.
