The Sykesville Raiders thumped the Winfield Cavaliers in three Carroll County Football League games Saturday.

Sykesville won the 13-14 game, 44-0; the 11-under contest, 34-7; and the 9-and-under game, 25-0.

Linemen Bill Frankton, Jesse Martin and Matt Sargent opened the holes in the 13-14 game. And running backs Tres Johnson (175 yards) and Jason Wilder (119) combined for 294 yards and scored three touchdowns apiece, as the Raiders' 13-14 team evened its record at 1-1.

The Raiders' Matt Deuchler also scored on a 75-yard kickoff return. Johnson ran in two conversions for the other Sykesville points. Raiders end Allan Mazasrose played a strong game on defense.

The 11-and-under game turned into an offensive show staged by Raiders running back Calvin Stacey. The youngster scored five touchdowns. He scored on first-half reverse plays of 30, 50 and 15 yards.

Quarterback Bryan Harrison ran in one conversion and fellow signal-caller Mark Bastress threw to Carl Lowery for another, as Sykesville took a 20-7 halftime lead.

Cavaliers quarterback Wes Peters had scored on a one-yard keeper play and Josh Rodriquez ran in the conversion when Winfield forged a short-lived 7-7 tie in the second quarter.

Tackle Chris Currence's blocking spurred Winfield's early successes in running up the middle.

Stacey, though, returned the second-half kickoff 70 yards and later tacked on a 45-yard punt return to ensure Sykesville's victory. Raiders tackles Charlie Meushaw and Cameron Cook, along with guard Randy Mathena, led the charge on the offensive line.

The Raiders' 9-and-under squad scored all of its points in the first half. Running back John Mead --ed 15 yards for one touchdown and passed 45 yards to Jon Bruce for another. Mead also ran in a conversion.

That youngster, while playing cornerback, --ed 40 yards with a pass interception for another score.

Bruce scored the fourth Raiders touchdown on a 35-yard punt return. End Robbie Ruch and guard Joe Lambert played well defensively in thwarting the Cavaliers.

The Raiders' 9-and-under team's Pit Bull offense played well in the second half even though it didn't score.

Quarterback Mike Mandella, offensive center Jake Mead and running backs Tyler Krous and Sean Patrick had good games for the Pit Bulls.

North Carroll dropped two of three games to Perry Hall.

The Gators took the 13-14 game, 27-7, and the 9-under game, 21-7. The Panthers won the 11-under contest, 6-0.

Steve Suter scored that game's only touchdown on a 28-yard second-quarter run. The Panthers' defense played well throughout the contest and Perry Hall never got within the locals' 25-yard line.

Bill Steigerwald caught a 20-yard pass from quarterback Tim Hackler in the third quarter to account for North Carroll's only touchdown in the 13-14 game.

Eric Busic scored on a four-yard run for North Carroll's only touchdown in the 9-under contest.

Quarterback Justin Hackler ran in the conversion after Busic's score.

Westminster's 10-and-under squad thumped Arbutus, 32-6.

The Wildcats led only 12-6 until late in the first half when Steve Howard's 15-yard run opened the lead to 18-6.

The locals pulled away after intermission. Howard also scored on a 22-yard --. He carried seven times for 80 yards in the game.

Westminster's Justin Janowitz ran 15 yards for a touchdown. Dwayne Magruder ran for 19 and Rafe Bridges for five. Bridges and Magruder also ran in conversions.

The blocking of guards Greg Condon and Curtis Parker, along with that of tackle Matt Farver, was a big factor as Westminster rolled up 225 yards in total offense.

Linebacker Ray Howell and tackle Brandon Strauss turned in strong defensive performances for the winners.


Carroll County's Mason-Dixon Rugby Club twice staged second-half rallies in taking two matches from Columbia Saturday.

In the A side game, Mason-Dixon trailed 3-0 at halftime. But Tony Gilbert, Tim Desmond and Neil Myers scored five-point tries in the second half to lead the locals to a 21-12 win.
