* 120-pounders -- Dominic Harris scored four touchdowns to lead the Andover Apaches to a 33-0 win over the previously unbeaten Severna Park Green Hornets in last Saturday's county championship game at Anne Arundel Community College.

After a scoreless first quarter, Harris put his team on the board by returning a punt 70 yards for a touchdown. Freeing up Harris with key blocks on the return were Keith Eldridge and Toney Twitty.

Dennis Emge then connected with Otis James for the extra point that gave the Apaches a 7-0 lead.

Moments later, that margin expanded to 13 when Harris intercepted a pass and returned it 55 yards for his second touchdown. Andover's extra-point attempt was unsuccessful and they led at the half, 13-0.

On its first possession of the second half, Andover gained excellent field position after a 35-yard run by Eldridge and eventually went ahead by three scores on a 15-yard touchdown scamper by Harris. Eldridge ran in the extra point to make it a 20-0 ballgame.

A blocked punt by Jason King in the fourth quarter enabled the Apaches to set up a drive near midfield. James made the Green Hornets pay for the mistake as he broke loose around the left end and ran 35 yards for the score.

The final touchdown of the day came after James intercepted a Severna Park pass. The ensuing drive included a 20-yard pass from Emge to Mike Parks that set up Harris' fourth touchdown -- this one from 13 yards out.

The Apaches, who outscored their opponents this season 330-18, were led defensively by Santo Bowie, Bryan Hughan, Mark Gillespie, Andy Eser, Henry Hutton, Donte Lamb, Justin Nash and T. J. Drury.

The offensive line play of Jeff Trevillian, Theo Bowie, Bryan Goodwin, Jason King, Matt Stoffel, Billy Whitecotton, Jason Santostefano, Justin Nash and Mike Parks enabled the Apache running backs to find daylight against a stingy Severna Park defense.

* 105-pounders -- The Gambrills-Odenton Recreation Council Wildcats claimed the county's 105-pound title by defeating the Severna Park Green Hornets, 18-6, Saturday at Anne Arundel Community College.

Terence Dorsey scored on the Wildcats' opening possession when he raced in from 19 yards away to complete a 16-play, 74-yard scoring drive that consumed most of the first quarter.

GORC added a second touchdown and took a 12-0 lead at the half when Norris Roy plunged in from 3 yards out.

Before the half ended, Dorsey intercepted a pass for the Wildcats and Ryan McGarry intercepted a pass for the Green Hornets.

The Wildcats scored their final touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a 14-yard touchdown run by Roy.

Severna Park (9-3) got on the scoreboard with less than a minute remaining on a 10-yard touchdown run by Mike Cosper. Cosper set up the score with a 16-yard pass to Dennis Cantwell. Jay Walker picked up 26 of the Green Hornets' 132 yards rushing.

The Wildcats (12-0) accumulated 239 total yards with Roy rushing for 104 on 15 carries and Dorsey picking up 74 yards on nine tries.

Leading the way defensively for the Wildcats were: Henry Hanburger, Floyd Minor, Jeff Lloyd, Jake Schram, Kris Lundborg and Justin Golliday. Clearing the way for the GORC running backs were Mark Tribett, Andre Penny, Matthew Tribett, Jason Scott and Travis Blake.

* 90-pounders -- Two touchdowns by Eric Pinkney helped the Andover Apaches to a 20-0 victory over the Shadyside Seahawks in last Saturday's county championship game at Anne Arundel Community College.

The victory capped an undefeated season for the Apaches, who finished with a 12-0 record.

Pinkney opened the scoring in the first quarter on touchdown runs of 3 and 50 yards. Jimmy Richardson added the Apaches' only other touchdown on a run of 65 yards.

Justin Rose and Matt Norwood rounded out the scoring with extra-point runs in the first and fourth quarters, respectively.

Cory Bowie, Cedric Murphy, Justin Malone, Marvin Johnson, Don Jacobs and Rick Mason were cited for their excellent offensive play and Mike Pfister was credited with a fumble recovery for the victors.

Matt Norwood led the Apache defense with five tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery and teammate Brian Hall contributed with five tackles and one quarterback sack. Also playing well defensively for coaches Maurice Bowie, Ken Parks, Tim Pickeral and Theo Bowie were Welby Veras, Ron Slade, Robby Snyder, Matt Blick, Kevin Mitchell, Tom Gouss, Gil Cavey, James Rich, Craig Ford, Mike Haynie and Louis Anuszewski.
