Glenelg routs Atholton, 35-0, eyes W. Lake

October 25, 1992|By Steven Kivinski | Steven Kivinski,Contributing Writer

Glenelg football coach Ed Ashwell has been telling his team to "take 'em one at a time." However, with a 35-point halftime lead over Atholton yesterday, even Ashwell couldn't help but to start looking ahead.

The Gladiators (7-1, 5-0) scored all their points in the first half and Ashwell showcased his reserves in the second half as Glenelg rolled by the visiting Raiders (2-6, 1-4), 35-0.

"We know that anything can happen in a football game and I would hate to see a team that we're better than upset us and ruin what we have," said Ashwell, whose team visits Wilde Lake (7-1, 5-0) next Saturday for a game that will determine the Howard County championship.

"All week, we talked about not taking anything for granted. My guys took a lot of lumps last year and they worked hard in the off-season, and it's paying off for them."

Glenelg running back Paul Brosenne, who came into the game with 176 carries for 1,039 yards and 10 touchdowns, ran for 209 yards and three touchdowns in the first first two quarters before adding nine yards on two tries in limited action in the second half.

Glenelg's ground-control offense controlled the line of scrimmage and the clock throughout the first half, and the

Gladiators' defense pressured the Atholton quarterbacks into throwing four interceptions.

Senior defensive back Jason Beall had three of the interceptions.
