Salisbury has gotten off to its best start since 1986, improving to 3-0 after torching Methodist for 585 yards of total offense in a 45-20 victory at Monarch Field in Fayetteville, N.C., yesterday.

Tailback Tony Ellis and quarterback Dustin Johnson combined for 477 rushing yards to pace the Sea Gulls, who never trailed after a 1-yard touchdown plunge from Johnson early in the first quarter.

Bowie State 34, St. Augustine's 2: After suffering their first loss in almost a year last week, the Bulldogs got back on track with the win over the Falcons.

Big plays sparked the Bulldogs (3-1 overall, 2-1 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association) as Maurice Hill and James Johnson hooked up for a 99-yard touchdown pass and Mike Bryant returned a punt 50 yards for a touchdown with 16 seconds left in the first half.

The Bulldogs totaled 365 yards of offense and their defense held the Falcons (0-4) to 100 yards.

Johns Hopkins 41, Rochester 28: Senior running back Kevin Johnson (City) and sophomore Adam Cook both rushed for two touchdowns and senior quarterback Rob Fernand rushed for one and threw for another as the Blue Jays knocked off the Yellowjackets at Homewood Field.

Cook and sophomore Nate Readal led a Blue Jays rushing attack that gained 269 yards. They each had 85 yards, and Johnson finished with 66 yards to move past Phil Sutley into 15th place on the all-time rushing list at Hopkins.

The Blue Jays improved to 2-0 and have won four straight games dating to last season. Rochester (0-2) has lost six straight.

Montclair State 30, Frostburg State 27: The Bobcats rallied from a 30-13 fourth-quarter deficit but came up short after quarterback Grant Burrough lost a fumble in the game's final minute.

With the Red Hawks (1-1) leading 30-13 entering the fourth quarter, Burrough (C.M. Wright) connected with Aaron Debb on an 11-yard scoring pass with 9:07 left to pull the Bobcats within 10. Burrough and Deeb hooked up again five minutes later, this time on a 10-yard touchdown that closed the gap to 30-27.

Frostburg (1-1) got the ball back after a three-and-out from Montclair and drove all the way to the Red Hawks' 26, but Derrick Mimy hit Burrough and forced a fumble that Doug Rothacker recovered with 22 seconds left to preserve the win.

McDaniel 28, Gettysburg 6: The Green Terror got touchdowns from four different players as McDaniel (2-1) won at home.
