October 21, 1993|By John Harris III and Steven Kivinski


* 105-pounders -- The Severna Park Green Hornets posted a 22-14 win over conference rival Cape St. Claire as Mike Cosper ran for two touchdowns and threw for a third.

Cosper, who completed 8 of 10 passes for 110 yards, scored on runs of 60 and 4 yards and connected with wide receiver Matt Lehmann on a 25-yard touchdown strike to give the Green Hornets sole possession of first place.

Jeremy Tate, Davin Rausch and Brett Steele led the Hornets' swarming defense, and Grayson Chalmer, Joe Weidman, Andrew Porter, Dan Furbish and Sean Martin were standouts on special teams.

A 40-0 win Saturday over the East Glen Burnie Warriors boosted the Pasadena Chargers' record to 6-0.

Nick Irving ran the ball 5 yards, then 29 before taking the ball in from the 10 for the touchdown. Wade Hall went in for the extra point to put the Chargers ahead 7-0.

Matt Rzepkowski's kickoff to the Warriors put the ball on their 39 but the Chargers' defense pushed the ball back 15 yards before Attavin Carter recovered a second fumble.

A 20-yard touchdown pass from Clark Adams to Maurice Dorsey gave the Chargers their second score. A quarterback keeper by Adams for the conversion was good and the quarter ended with the Chargers ahead 14-0.

Irving, Greg Formwalt, Andrew Weisenborn and Melvin Guthrie led the Chargers' defense, forcing EGB to punt on fourth down. Carter took the punt back 71 yards before being stopped at the Warriors' 9-yard-line. A 1-yard touchdown sprint by Wade Hall gave Pasadena a 20-0 lead.

Irving's 12-yard sweep set up an 18-yard pass from Adams to Steve Fountain. Adams took the ball in from the 1-yard line for a 26-0 lead.

Irving, Guthrie and Hall steadily moved the ball to the Warriors' goal, setting up a 2-yard touchdown run by Hall. Somerville kicked a two-point conversion.

The Warriors' last possession ended with a punt. Pasadena took over and Adams found Dorsey in the end zone for the Chargers' final touchdown.

Pasadena's defense was led by strong performances from Guthrie and Irving (eight tackles each), Formwalt (seven tackles) and Paul Harris (four tackles).

Pasadena travels to Maryland City for a 3 p.m. kickoff on Saturday.

* 75-pounders -- The Andover Apaches (5-1) rebounded from last week's shutout loss to Pasadena by rushing for 219 yards and defeating the previously unbeaten Buccaneers, 19-6.

Jermaine Murdock paved the way for Corey Murphy's first-half touchdown runs of 50 and 11 yards. Darius Johnson scampered 60 yards for the final touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

The Apaches defense was led by Jason Volker, T. J. Himmel, Cory Taylor, Steven Kempner, Keith Martin and Jeffrey Holbrook, who recovered a fumble at Andover's 35-yard line.

* 90-pounders -- Tim Edward's Pasadena Chargers (4-2) got back on the winning track Saturday with a 32-6 win over the East Glen Burnie Warriors.

The Chargers took control early when T. C. Henson made a 20-yard touchdown run on Pasadena's first possession. Danny Fitzgerald went in for the extra point and the Chargers took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter.

Tackles by Keith Ford and Brian Sanders forced a fumble by EGB on their own 45-yard line. Marcus Jones took the ball and ran 45 yards for a touchdown.

The Warriors' offense was pushed back with tackles by Matt Richey, A. J. Perrin and James Ratcliff and again EGB went to the punt. Travis Formwalt returned the punt to the Warriors' 15, but a clipping penalty negated a 15-yard touchdown run by Banks.

Pasadena's Henson returned the second-half kickoff 50 yards to set up a 10-yard touchdown run by Banks. Scott Duncan took the ball in for the extra point.

A 1-yard pass from Joseph Pierpoint to Burson put the Warriors on the board, but the ensuing extra-point run by Pierpoint was stopped by Pasadena's Ricky Redgrave.

Runs by Henson, Jones and Duncan set up a 5-yard touchdown -- by quarterback Banks for the final score.

The Chargers' defense was assisted by the efforts of Jones (five tackles), Banks (four tackles), Charles Diggs and Keith Ford (one tackle each).

Kelsey Garry, Robert Hodges, Michael Jenkins, Jeffrey Jenkins and Cory Hudson contributed to the efforts of the Warriors.

The Chargers will visit Maryland City on Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff.

* 120-pounders -- The Andover Apaches (6-0) hammered the Buccaneers (0-6) last week, 37-0.

Eldridge broke loose on a 56-yard touchdown run to open the third quarter and Harris added a 10-yard score to start the fourth. Twitty closed out the scoring when he intercepted a pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown.
