November 11, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Running back Kermi Alexander scored three touchdowns, including two in overtime, as No.7 Randallstown downed host Milford Mill, 26-20, in triple overtime yesterday.

The Rams (9-1) clinched a second consecutive Baltimore County championship, as well as a second straight Class 3A-4A North regional crown. Randallstown, which faced a halftime deficit for only the second time this season, was trailing by 14-8 in the third quarter when cornerback Brian Carroll returned a fumble to tie the score at 14.

In the third overtime period, Randallstown's defense emerged again, as Jerron Richardson sacked Millers quarterback Andre Brown to put Milford Mill (7-3) out of scoring range.

That led to Alexander's third score of the day.

"Our defense has been getting it done all year long," said Randallstown coach Anthony Knox. "It was a good test for us. Going into the playoffs it shows how tough our kids are."

No. 3 Glenelg 27, Long Reach 7: Powered by the rushing of Kenny Dunsmore and John Menz, the visiting Gladiators (10-0) finished the regular season undefeated.

River Hill 49, Howard 22: Senior running back Adrian Cmerek rushed 17 times for 227 yards and three touchdowns, and junior Chris Martin had two interceptions -- including one he returned 38 yards for a touchdown -- as the Hawks (5-5) rolled over the visiting Lions (1-9).

Oakland Mills 32, Centennial 8: Leading just 13-8 early in the third quarter, the visiting Scorpions (6-4) scored 19 consecutive points that included two touchdowns by senior Maurice Shaw (eight carries, 145 yards).

Senior Justin Barnes, who had 27 carries for 159 yards, closed the game with a 43-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Eagles fell to 6-4.

Woodlawn 48, Patapsco 18: Kenneth Sutton had 158 rushing to lead the visiting Warriors (7-3).

Hammond 21, Atholton 6: Seniors T.C. Johnson, Tye Murphy and Kenton Dunson each scored a touchdown as the Bears (5-5) rushed for 364 total yards.
