October 10, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Brenden Williams rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries to lead 12th-ranked Patterson over Dunbar, 23-14, last night at Utz Twardowicz Field in Patterson Park.

The loss means two-time state champion Dunbar (1-5), which has been in the playoffs every year since city schools joined the state association in 1993, will not make it this season.

Brian Hopson's 1-yard touchdown run with three minutes left put the game away. He finished with 82 yards on 19 carries.

Williams' 3-yard run in the first quarter helped the Clippers (6-0) to a 7-6 halftime lead, and his 52-yard third-quarter run gave them a 15-14 lead.

No. 6 Milford Mill 38, Kenwood 20: Tyrone Gholston rushed for two touchdowns and Richard Johnson threw for two others as the Millers fought off the upset-minded Bluebirds.

Gholston's 5-yard touchdown run gave the visiting Millers (5-1) a 12-7 lead in the second quarter. But Jeff Lyon hit Jimmy Stoneburner with a 10-yard scoring pass with less than two minutes left in the half to put the Bluebirds (2-3) up 14-12 at intermission.

Gholston put the Millers ahead for good with a 34-yard run in the third quarter.

No. 10 City 20, Mervo 0: Kevin Johnson rushed 28 times for 125 yards and two touchdowns to lead the visiting Knights (5-1) over the Mustangs (2-4).

Johnson had touchdown runs of 3 and 4 yards in the second quarter to give the Knights a 14-0 halftime lead. Quarterback Jawan Yancey completed seven of 14 passes for 130 yards.

No. 13 Hereford 63, Chesapeake-BC 0: Matt Curtis and Reggie Cavender combined for 240 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 10 total carries in the first half to lead the host Bulls (6-0) over the Bayhawks (0-6).

Six players scored touchdowns for the Bulls, who rolled to a school-record 50-0 lead at the half, breaking by one point the record they set last year against Northeast. The 63 points tied a school record, achieved twice last season. Curtis scored on runs of 5, 33 and 67 yards in the first quarter.

No. 14 St. Paul's 26, Cardinal Gibbons 6: Ryan Wilson's 10-yard touchdown run in the third quarter gave St. Paul's (4-1 overall, 2-1 MIAA B) insurance on the way to a convincing win over visiting Gibbons (3-2, 1-2).

Gibbons took an 6-0 lead in the first quarter when Jack Oliver returned an interception 65 yards for a touchdown. St. Paul's took the lead for good on a 47-yard scoring pass from Brendan Gill to Trey Whitty in the second.

Calvert Hall 27, South River 0: Four different players scored touchdowns as the Cardinals (4-2) blanked the host Seahawks (2-4).

Chad Parsons opened the scoring with a 1-yard run. Joe Hinz then hit Alan Maszarose with a 14-yard pass and Greg Smoot had a 7-yard run to give the Cardinals a 21-0 halftime lead.

Gerrick McPhearson finished the scoring with a 2-yard run in the third quarter.

Fallston 7, Edgewood 2: Mike Gonano returned a punt 91 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, and the Cougars (3-3) made it stand up for a win over the visiting Rams (4-2). Fallston's Brian Carter led all rushers with 95 yards on 14 carries.

C. Milton Wright 27, Joppatowne 6: Jerrance Carter had 110 of the Mustangs' 223 rushing yards against the visiting Mariners (1-5). Wright (5-1) held Joppatowne to 73 yards of total offense.
