A.J. Lee scored on an 8-yard run on the second possession of overtime and then ran for the two-point conversion as host Southern of Harwood earned a thrilling 36-34 upset of No. 11 Arundel last night.

After Lee scored his eight points, the visiting Wildcats scored on Bobby Schram's 10-yard touchdown pass to Danny Marin.

Arundel (4-2), however, failed on the potential tying two-point conversion when Schram's pass fell incomplete.

It was the Bulldogs' second overtime victory this season and left them at 6-0 after receiving a forfeit win earlier in the day. Glen Burnie, which defeated Southern, 22-20, two weeks ago, had to forfeit two games for using an ineligible player.

"We play for big games - blowing a team out, 58-0, is great, too - but this makes us stronger for when we get to the playoffs," Lee said.

Lee carried 24 times for 190 yards and two touchdowns. His 86-yard scamper and subsequent two-point run with 5:32 left in the third quarter gave Southern a 28-14 lead.

Arundel rallied in the final eight minutes of the fourth quarter to force overtime, with Schram throwing for one touchdown and running for another.
