Fort Hill gets past Poly, 14-13 Football roundup

November 15, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Fort Hill lineman Nathan Weaver keyed a blocked field-goal attempt with five seconds left, and the visiting Sentinels of Allegany County edged Poly, 14-13, yesterday before a crowd of about 2,000 at Lumsden-Scott Stadium.

The 2A quarterfinal victory ended unranked Poly's six-game winning streak, earning defending state champ Fort Hill (9-2) a berth in next weekend's semifinal against No. 2 Randallstown (11-0), a 21-14 overtime winner against Einstein of Montgomery County on Friday night.

No. 13 Oakland Mills 15, Bohemia Manor 0: The Scorpions, making their ninth state playoff appearance, but first since 1995, finally scored on two six-inch quarterback sneaks by T. J. Welsh PTC for the victory over the visiting Eagles in the Class 1A state quarterfinals.

The Scorpions (10-1) will play host to Cambridge at 1 p.m. Saturday in the semifinals. Oakland Mills' only trip to the finals was in 1982.

Joey Ellis was yesterday's dominant player. He rushed 15 times for 95 yards, caught three passes for 43 yards and made nine tackles from his strong safety position.

No. 15 John Carroll 17, Calvert Hall 12: Quarterback Mike Leatherman's 1-yard run with 55 seconds left lifted the host Patriots (8-2) past the Cardinals (5-5). Leatherman set up his touchdown run with a 12-yard run on the previous play.

Leatherman also had passes of 35 and 15 yards to Ricky Black during John Carroll's game-clinching drive that started at its 35.
