Sophomore Grant Burrough (C. Milton Wright) threw a career-high three touchdown passes and ran for two more to lead Frostburg State (2-1) to a 55-24 victory over Chowan College before 2,075 fans at Bobcat Stadium yesterday.

The Bobcats, who scored their most points since a 60-3 drubbing of Greensboro on Oct. 11, 1997, got rolling on the second play of the game when sophomore Anthony Long caught a short pass from Burrough, spun away from one defender and outran several others for a 66-yard touchdown.

After a blocked punt on the ensuing possession, Burrough (13-for-17 for 134 yards, six carries for 30 yards) followed with a 2-yard touchdown run to give Frostburg a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the game.

Later, Burrough gave the Bobcats a 25-point cushion over Chowan (1-3) with a 15-yard touchdown pass to junior Tim Wilkins (Mervo).

Johns Hopkins 14, Gettysburg 7: Rob Heleniak threw two touchdown passes, as the visiting Blue Jays (3-1, 1-0) defeated the Bullets (2-3, 0-2) in a Centennial Conference game.

John Hopkins' defense, led by sophomore nose guard Paul Smith (career-high 11 tackles, three sacks), limited Gettysburg to 136 yards of total offense.

Heleniak, who overcame four interceptions and five sacks, connected with Brian Wolcott on a 19-yard touchdown pass as time expired in the second quarter to give the Blue Jays a 14-0 lead.

Bowie State 14, Virginia Union 8: Freshman Atcheson Conway picked off his second pass of the game with 1:14 left to preserve the victory for the visiting Bulldogs (2-2, 1-2) over the Panthers (2-2, 2-1) in a Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association contest.

Conway also added 10 tackles, broke up three passes, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.

Bowie State quarterback Kernis Faison connected with wide receiver Mike Bryant on a 38-yard touchdown pass 4:58 into the game, and Kelvin Collins scored on a 4-yard run with 2:27 left to make it 14-0.
