Unranked Severna Park stunned Eleanor Roosevelt, The Washington Post's No. 5 football team, 13-7, yesterday in Greenbelt on Greg Kingler's 33-yard touchdown pass to Ben Hunt with 27 seconds left.

"They had tied the game at 7-7 on a 33-yard touchdown pass by Derrick Williams with about two minutes left," said Severna Park coach J.P. Hines. "But our kids really wanted it.

After a scoreless first half, the Falcons got a 32-yard touchdown scamper from Andrew Ferris to take a 7-0 lead in the third period before the Raiders tied it.

Hines credited his defensive unit for containing Williams, who is considered one of the top high school players in the nation. Williams was held to 50 yards on 19 carries; he was 6-for-15 passing for 80 yards.

No. 1 McDonogh 1, DeMatha 1: Maryland-bound senior Matt Beckman scored his fifth goal of the week to lift the Eagles (2-0-1) to a tie with the Stags at the Fila Classic.

"It was unfortunate, because we were a lot more dangerous out there," McDonogh coach Steve Nichols said.
