Davis helps Southwestern convert 8-6 football victory


September 22, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The winning streak is over.

Host Southwestern, which had been outscored 100-18 in its first two football games, relied on two conversion plays by Orlando Davis yesterday to edge No. 13 Edmondson, 8-6, ending the Redskins' 29-game run against city opponents.

"Everybody in every game has been after us, and we've been close to going in either direction," said Redskins coach Pete Pompey, who had won 30 of his past 32 games. "Our kids are young, but we'll be back."

After Edmondson took a 6-0 lead in the third quarter on a 43-yard touchdown run by quarterback Daryl Smith, Davis sacked Smith, preventing the two-point conversion. The Sabres then tied the score with seven minutes left on Kieth Hill's 3-yard touchdown run. Davis caught the two-point pass from Joseph Ox.

The winning drive was set up by Robert Lesane, who made an interception at his own 30 and returned it to the Edmondson 45, setting up the short field for the Sabres' only score.

No. 6 Eastern Tech 33, Owings Mills 7: Dietrich Wright had an 80-yard touchdown run on the Mavericks' first offensive play, as Eastern Tech (3-0) rolled in a battle of undefeated teams.

Senior quarterback Brad Newell, who also ran for a touchdown, threw scoring passes of 11 yards and 8 yards. Junior Clive Williams had 14 tackles for the Mavericks.

No. 12 St. Paul's 2, Severn 1: Freshman Megan Delmonte's goal with just one second remaining lifted the Gators (3-2) to a comeback victory.

Delmonte collected the ball from 5 yards along the right side of the goal and sent a shot into the left corner of the net. Delmonte's heroics were set up by Kristin Connelly, who scored with 4:19 left in the second half to tie the score at 1.

Arundel 1, No. 5 South River 0: Megan Filo picked up a loose ball and found an open Danielle Werner, who blasted a shot past Seahawks goalie Cristen Cousin for the game's only goal.

Werner's goal with 5 1/2 minutes left gave the Wildcats (3-2) an upset victory. Senior Elisa Ester made five saves for the Wildcats, including a sprawling stop late in the first half.

Bel Air 2, No. 10 Centennial 1: The Bobcats (2-3) struck early in each half, then held off the Eagles for the upset victory.

Junior Carrie Riser scored just 90 seconds into the game, and the Bobcats built a two-goal advantage on Rachel Lashof's rebound tally five minutes into the second half. Goalie Lauren Paul (15 saves) made the lead stand up.
