Hereford's 42-point quarter crushes Pikesville's moment

Behind 7-0, No. 3 Bulls run down Panthers, 48-7

For nearly 15 minutes, Pikesville dared to dream.

During that time, the 14th-ranked Panthers football team led by seven points over third-ranked Hereford, and entertained thoughts of ending the Bulls' 30-game winning streak against Baltimore County teams.

In the end, however, the visiting Panthers simply incurred the ire of the county's most dominant program, which scored a school-record 42 points in the second quarter en route to a 48-7 victory last night.

The Bulls (8-0 league, 9-0 overall) racked up 345 of their 458 rushing yards in the first half of the county 2A-1A league game, ending a seven-game winning streak for Pikesville (5-1 league, 7-2 overall)

Patt Butt scored four times during Hereford's run, including three times in a five-minute span that widened the margin to 21-7. Adam Goloboski and Grant Hemmerly had one touchdown each as the Bulls overcame a 7-0 deficit after Pikesville's Damond Malloy found Reggie Dean on the end of a 70-yard scoring pass with three minutes left in the first quarter.

Butt had 140 of his 195 yards in the first half to go with scoring runs of 3, 4, 35 and 63 yards, and caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Shupert early in the fourth quarter.

"With the playoffs coming up, a lot was at stake tonight," Butt said. "Our offensive line -- Jaren Matthews, Nathan Schubert, Ben Brendel, Dillon Sullivan, Joe Akers, Brett Wehnert -- they were amazing."

Hereford's defense clamped down as well, with Zach Armiger, Josh Morris, Tim Ruff and Ed Darney all getting second-quarter sacks. Darney also had a fumble recovery in the period. Goloboski had a sack, and teammates Norman Anderson and Josh Wingeart recorded interceptions.

Pikesville played right with the Bulls in the first quarter. John Rogers recovered a Hereford fumble at his own 2-yard line and returned it 53 yards. Teammates Tamba Gbakima (two sacks) and Daniel Leeman (pass breakup) also played well defensively.

Facing third-and-seven in the first quarter, Malloy found Dean for a touchdown, producing a lead that lasted until 9:07 left in the half. But Malloy, the area's rushing and scoring leader, had only 10 yards rushing and 92 passing.

"He's the complete package," said Darney, a second-team All-Metro selection. "All week long, coaches told us he was Superman. Tonight, we were kryptonite."
