November 05, 1995|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,SUN STAFF

Archie Wannamaker rushed for a state-record 368 yards and seven touchdowns (tying a state record) on 26 carries to raise his season totals to 1,731 yards and 33 touchdowns, as top-ranked Mount St. Joseph hammered City, 53-18.

The 5-foot-8, 175-pound senior, who runs a 4.5-second 40-yard --, had scoring runs of 60, 36, 27, 8 and 3 yards, along with two touchdowns from 1 yard.

A day earlier, Kenwood's area rushing leader Steve Kelley (1,864 yards) also scored seven times in a 47-0 rout of Parkville to tie the state record.

"I wanted to have my best game, and I wanted a blowout," said Wannamaker, crediting his line of Pat Wallace, Chris Whitt, Joe Kern, Butch Jarrett, Lorne Phillips and Gary Moore.

Mount St. Joseph receiver Danny Rosewag set the tone on the game's opening play, hauling in a 60-yard pass from Lucas Phillips. Rosewag finished with four receptions for 101 yards as the Gaels (9-0) extended Maryland's longest active winning streak to 13 games.

"We knew we were going to run that play all week," said Rosewag, who has 34 receptions for 661 yards and an area-leading nine touchdowns. "My hands were cold, so I bobbled it a little, but it felt great."

Phillips (10-for-15, 151 yards) has been sacked just four times in the last two years, and the 6-2, 180-pound junior, again escaped unscathed as the Gaels racked up 564 yards of offense, 357 in the first half.

Playing well defensively for the Gaels were linemen DeVaughan Mellerson and Mitchell McGraw, John Working (fumble recovery), and Rob Howse and Nate Taylor, each with an interception.

For City (275 total yards), running back Taber Small had 86 yards and two touchdowns, and receiver Curtis Anderson (three receptions, 75 yards) caught a 51-yard scoring pass from Mike Johnson (7-for-12, 107 yards).

Damian Beane rushed for 73 yards, and James Wilson had an interception in the end zone.

"They [Gaels] have few weaknesses and they're the best team I've seen in a long while," said City coach George Petrides.
