Facing a Lansdowne team that has played well of late, No. 11 Eastern Tech kept the ball on the ground and rolled over the Vikings, 45-12, at CCBC-Essex stadium last night.

"We didn't know what to expect," coach Bruce Strunk said. "They're a pretty good team, but our guys played well."

Leading the attack was sophomore fullback Dietrich Wright, who ran for three touchdowns. By halftime, the Mavericks (9-1) had collected 36 points, all on rushing touchdowns.

The ball-control offense helped neutralize Lansdowne quarterback Jeff Slusher, who did, however, throw for both of the Vikings' touchdowns.

No. 11 Joppatowne 35, Havre de Grace 0: The host Mariners (10-0) clinched their first-ever Harford County championship and a Class 2A East Region crown behind a three-touchdown performance by junior split end George Smith, who caught three touchdown passes from senior quarterback Dalys Talley.

No. 2 Hereford 61, Loch Raven 0: The Bulls (10-0) completed an undefeated regular season, routing the Raiders, who gained only 36 yards of total offense.

Senior tailback Dillon Sullivan had three touchdowns and ran eight times for 103 yards to spearhead a rushing attack that gained 316 yards.

No. 12 Patterson 38, Lake Clifton 8: With the victory, the Clippers (9-1) clinched the 4A North Region championship and the City 4A-3A title.

Senior running back Jeff Smith had 211 yards on 22 carries and three touchdowns.

Francis Scott Key 55, Williamsport 0: Senior Brad Stonesifer tied a single-game state record for individual touchdowns, finding the end zone seven times to lead the visiting Eagles (7-3) in the rout.

Stonesifer finished with 187 yards on 11 carries.

Pikesville 52, Western Tech 20: Junior quarterback Damond Malloy showed why he is among the area leaders in rushing yards and touchdowns, carrying the ball 32 times for 307 yards and five touchdowns in a blowout win.

Malloy added a 78-yard kickoff return to bring him within one score of the state single-game touchdown record and help the Panthers (8-2) tie a school record with their eighth win.

Chesapeake-AA 35, Northeast 30: Junior running back Nick Bowen had five touchdowns and 289 yards rushing on 34 carries for the host Cougars (4-6).

No. 15 Calvert Hall 41, Lackey 22: After Lackey's Courtney Knight opened the game with a 55-yard touchdown run, the host Cardinals (6-3) responded with 28 consecutive points en route to the convincing win.

St. Paul's 30, Boys' Latin 14: Brian McGettigan had two short touchdown runs to lead the host Crusaders (4-5) over the Lakers (4-6).

South Carroll 42, Westminster 41: Mike Guerra's third touchdown reception, with 45 seconds left, and Brian Lowry's extra point lifted the Cavaliers (6-4) over the visiting Owls (7-3).
