Terrence Dorsey scored two touchdowns and caught a point-after pass from quarterback Kris Lundborg, as the Gambrills-Odenton Recreation Council Wildcats defeated the defending county champion Severn Athletic Club Savages, 21-0, to capture the Chesapeake Division championship and advance to Saturday's 95-pound county title round at Anne Arundel Community College.

The Wildcats (11-0) will take on Shady Side (11-0), a 13-12 winner over Davidsonville, at 3 p.m.

GORC scored first in the first quarter on a 1-yard run by Norris Roy, who finished with 53 yards on 13 carries. The host Wildcats added two touchdowns by Dorsey in the second quarter on runs of 7 and 12 yards.

Dorsey and Andre Penney each contributed with a fumble recovery. Offensive linemen Henry Hanburger and Jason Scott were praised for their blocking.

* 75 pounds -- Cape St. Claire avenged an early-season 30-6 loss to previously unbeaten Davidsonville with a 7-6 semifinal win last weekend and advanced to Saturday's county championship at Anne Arundel Community College.

The Cape scored the winning points on its second possession of the game. Jon Blades capped a 65-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown, thanks to key blocks by Brandon Eslin and Brian Hester. Eslin ran through the middle for the extra point.

The Gators pulled to within one in the third quarter on a 40-yard run but failed to convert the extra point.

Defensively, Mike Harris, Conrad Judy, Mike Wallace, Patrick Forrester, Chris Kelleher, Ray Conrad, Gerald Williams, Brad Medley, Jason Rider, Chris Mortella, Blades, Magnolia, Hester, and Heslin stood out.

Pasadena (7-3) stands between Cape St. Claire and the league championship.

* 115 pounds -- The GORC Wildcats (9-1-1) earned a berth in Saturday's county championship with an 18-7 victory last week over the Fort Meade Cougars (7-3).

Fort Meade scored in the second quarter when GOR quarterback Kenny Hayden was intercepted, giving the Cougars the ball at the Wildcats' 30. Five plays later, Fort Meade took a 7-0 lead when quarterback Jackson Barroso hit tight end Steve Pipal for a 5-yard touchdown.

On GORC's next series, after three running plays, Hayden connected with running back Ricky Graves on a 45-yard touchdown pass.

On the ensuing kickoff, Rocco Queen and Dane Marquardt of GORC forced Fort Meade return man Toland Anderson to fumble, and Joe Schramm recovered for the Wildcats. Queen and Graves carried the ball to the Fort Meade 4 before Hayden scored on a keeper.

After a scoreless third quarter, Hayden hit Schramm on the final score from 1 yard out.

* Severna Park (10-1) overcame an 8-6 halftime deficit on its way to a 22-14 triumph over Crofton (9-2) and will play the Gambrills-Odenton Recreation Council this weekend at Anne Arundel Community College.

Josh Cornett scored on a 40-yard run, Rob Henley dived in from inside the 10, and quarterback Ryan Metzbower threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Mickey O'Connor to complete the scoring. Cornett also kicked two of three two-point conversions.

Severna Park offensive linemen Chris Alcorn, Danny Allen, Ryan Cantwell, Mike Burke, Rob Morris, Zach Fullerton, Robert Hoffman and Ryan McClay received praise as did the defensive backfield of O. J. Jackson, Amiel Morris and Von Craig, who made a touchdown-saving tackle. Standouts for the Cardinals included running back Frankie Parker, and quarterback Billy Cilento.

* Severna Park's "B" team earned a championship date with Severn for its 39-0 win over Cape St. Claire.

Justin Rivenbark ran for 126 yards and four touchdowns. Randy Newman added 79 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback Matt Kellogh threw for two touchdown passes.

Severna Park was led defensively by David Janecki, Nick Arminger and Adam Baxter.

* 140 pounds -- Linebacker Jackie Rexrode and defensive end Luke Coleman stopped Pasadena's Brad Emge inches from the goal line on fourth down to preserve a Gambrills-Odenton Recreation Council 14-8 victory in overtime in the Chesapeake Division championship Saturday.

Host GORC (10-0) advanced to Saturday's county championship game at Anne Arundel Community College against Davidsonville who was a 19-0 winner over United Youth Club in the Patuxent Division final.

GORC and defending champion Pasadena (7-3) each score eight points in the first half, and, after a scoreless second half, went into overtime, with each team getting four downs from the 10.

Damon Scott (25 rushes, 78 yards) carried to the 2 on GORC's first two downs before quarterback Kevin Hayden (5-for-16, 71 yards passing) rolled to his right and his pass fell incomplete.

Hayden kept it on an option and dove onto the cone in the right corner of the end zone for a touchdown.

After Rexrode missed the two-point kick, the Chargers got their chance. Brian Kingsbury (eight carries, 40 yards) picked up two yards and Emge (10, 35) ran for five to the 3, but an illegal procedure call moved the ball back to the 8.
