Gilman routs St. Mary's, 35-8

October 09, 1994|By Rich Scherr | Rich Scherr,Special to The Sun

Over the years, just the thought of facing Gilman's hard-hitting defense has led some offensive coordinators to revise their game plans.

This year is no exception. But as eighth-ranked St. Mary's found out yesterday, the No. 6 Greyhounds have worked long and hard of late to throw something new into the mix.

A little offense.

Host Gilman racked up 362 yards -- including nearly 300 in the first half -- en route to a 35-8 win over the Saints in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game.

Through four games this season, the usually defensive-minded Greyhounds (3-1, 1-0) have scored an average of 26 points -- a statistic that coach Sherm Bristow says can be attributed to the development of a big and physical offensive line.

"They've really come around," said Bristow of the offensive front that includes Ben Wilson, Lewis Applefeld, Travis Brown, David Payne, George Bealefeld and Alex Mueller, the latter three weighing an average of nearly 270 pounds.

The group dominated the Saints (4-1, 3-1), opening gaping holes for running backs R. C. Kauffman (22 carries, 139 yards, two touchdowns) and David Biddison (10 for 128, two touchdowns).

By halftime, each had rushed for more than 100 yards and scored two touchdowns.

"The offensive line deserves all the credit," said Biddison. "They do all the work and make our jobs easy."

Gilman wasted little time, marching 63 yards on 11 plays on the opening drive and taking a 7-0 lead on Biddison's 4-yard touchdown run.
