Steinheim carries load for Chesapeake-AA

November 02, 1992|By Kevin Eck | Kevin Eck,Contributing Writer

Chesapeake-AA has won only two games this season, so Cougars running back Brandon Steinheim's performances tend to get overlooked.

But Steinheim entered the weekend as Anne Arundel County's leading rusher (1,211 yards) and second-leading scorer (86 points).

And opposing coaches are noticing.

"He could have made my team," Severna Park coach Andy Borland said. "He's a load to bring down for as little as he is. Unless you wrap him up you can't bring him down. And he really hits hard."

Steinheim, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound senior, added to his impressive numbers in a 40-7 loss to Annapolis on Friday by rushing for 120 yards and scoring on a 10-yard run.

Records, streaks, milestones

* City's 26-0 win over Calvert Hall on Saturday extended the area's longest winning streak to 17.

* Sparrows Point's 20-6 victory over Milford Mill on Friday ended the area's longest losing streak at 30. Lansdowne, which lost to Parkville 42-0 on Friday, now owns the area's longest losing streak, 20 games.

* C. Milton Wright won its 32nd consecutive regular-season game, 28-0, over Joppatowne on Friday.

* Overlea's 36-14 victory over Loch Raven on Friday extended the Falcons' winning streak against Baltimore County opponents to 36.

* Dunbar recorded its sixth straight shutout on Friday, 32-0, over Northern.

That is Wilde stuff

After Wilde Lake struggled to a 3-0 overtime victory over Howard on Sept. 25, Wildecats coach Doug DuVall was asked if the rest of Howard County had caught up with Wilde Lake, the county's perennial power.

DuVall noted that Wilde Lake was hurt because it is the smallest school in the county and that "the league seems to be more balanced."

With one league game remaining, however, it is apparent that the balance of power has not shifted. The Wildecats clinched at least a share of their fourth consecutive county title by defeating Glenelg, 28-0, on Saturday.

Point of no return

When Poly's Khari Tucker returned a punt 78 yards for an apparent touchdown against Delaware's Salesianum on Friday, it appeared to be the key play of the game.

And it was, unfortunately for Poly, which lost 12-7.

Tucker's return would have given the Engineers at least a 13-6 lead in a game where offense was not at a premium. But Poly's Kendall West was called for clipping and the touchdown was called back.

"The punt being called back was the turning point of the game," Poly coach Augie Waibel said.
