Late TD, conversion boost Woodlawn, 14-12 Southern-AA rolls by Hammond, 41-0

September 05, 1993|By From Staff Reports

Keion Carpenter ran 53 yards for a touchdown with 5:48 remaining and Anthony Reid ran in for the two-point conversion, lifting Woodlawn past host Westminster, 14-12, last night in the opener for both teams.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but was postponed because of lightning.

Carpenter, a junior quarterback, finished with 104 yards rushing and was five of seven for 136 yards as the Warriors (1-0) rallied from a 12-0 halftime deficit.

Westminster (0-1) took the early lead on touchdown passes by Steve Mays to Denny Bowers and Jim Stull. Woodlawn closed to 12-6 on a 3-yard scoring run by Carpenter in the third quarter.

Southern-AA 41, Hammond 0

Southern (1-0) jumped to an early 27-0 advantage and rolled over host Hammond (0-1), using its superior speed and first-half execution to repeatedly sting the Golden Bears for long touchdowns.

Chief among the Southern game-breakers was senior running back and defensive back Jamar Mullen. He broke loose for big-play touchdowns offensively and defensively and set a school record for longest interception return with a 100-yard runback.

Mullen scored Southern's first touchdown on a fourth-down, 34-yard pass play that capped a 66-yard opening drive.

Southern scored on its second possession when another game-breaker, Wayne Small, caught the first of his two touchdown passes from quarterback Joe McCafferty. It was on a third-and-7 situation and was good for 54 yards. Corey Contee's extra point made it 14-0.

McCafferty was nearly perfect, completing seven of eight passes for 160 yards and four touchdowns.

Severn 34, John Carroll 6

John Vereen and Fred Macaraeg scored two touchdowns each to lead a dominating Severn running attack past John Carroll (0-1) at Severn.

Vereen, a junior, rushed for 225 yards on 26 carries and Macaraeg had 13 rushes for 123 yards. The Admirals (1-0) rushed for 413 yards and had 444 total yards.

Aberdeen 26, Pikesville 6

Nick Johnson ran for touchdowns of 35 and 5 yards as Aberdeen (1-0) defeated host Pikesville (0-1).

Lonnie Bishop ran for 105 yards on 12 carries for Pikesville.

G. Counsel 28, Mt. St. Joe 18

Eddie Pailen rushed for 128 yards and scored a touchdown for Mount St. Joseph, but it wasn't enough as the Gaels (0-1) lost their opener to visiting Good Counsel (1-0).

Atholton 13, Northeast 6

Senior running back Carlando Love scored on a 7-yard touchdown run in the second quarter to lead Atholton (1-0) to a come-from-behind win over Northeast (0-1).

Senior quarterback Jason Albert headed the Raiders' run-and-shoot offense and tossed an 18-yard touchdown pass to Matt Treese in the third quarter.

Lackey 12, South River 7

Senior running back Craig Hopkins scored the Seahawks' only touchdown in the fourth quarter as South River (0-1) lost to host Lackey (1-0).

Hopkins, who rushed for 65 yards on 12 carries, scored on a 73-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Phil Tayman.
