Maryland-bound Darrius Heyward-Bey returned the second-half kickoff 67 yards to ignite a 10-point third quarter that helped No. 6 McDonogh to a 24-14 victory over Severn in Severna Park yesterday.

Heyward-Bey's return to the Severn 16-yard line led to a 28-yard field goal by Brian Weiss and a subsequent 18-yard touchdown pass from Tim Brandeau for a commanding 24-6 lead for the Eagles (1-0).

It was the second touchdown pass of the game for Brandeau, the other a 50-yarder in the first quarter to Tony Lott, who caught four passes for 93 yards. Brandeau shared quarterback duties with lefty Jared Jorgenson.

"We're going every other series all the way through [first few games] no matter what, and we feel both kids are about even," said McDonogh coach Dom Amico. "I was overall very pleased because that No. 5 [Severn's Deon Peters] is very talented. He's an All-Metro type back, but I think we contained him."

Peters rushed for 77 yards on 15 carries, including the Admirals' final touchdown from 3 yards out with 2:03 left in the game. His 36-yard run set up Severn's first-quarter score by quarterback Jamal Jones.

"I also thought Deon did a great job on a tremendous receiver [Heyward-Bey] one-on-one," said coach Severn coach John Beckman, whose Admirals fell to 1-1.

Heyward-Bey caught two passes for 14 yards against Peters, plus the 18-yard score that came when Peters was out of the game with a cramp.

No. 4 Hereford 52, Dulaney 14: Running back Cory Smith finished with 207 combined yards and three touchdowns to lead the Bulls (2-0) past the Lions (0-2). Lions quarterback Andy DePaola went 9-for-14 for 143 yards and one touchdown.

New Town 22, Owings Mills 14: The Titans (1-1) earned the first varsity football win in their school's history by defeating the Eagles (0-2). Wide receiver Michael Jefferson had eight catches for 105 yards, and quarterback Marlon McClain went 10-for-14 for 129 yards.

Spalding 14, Milford Mill 7: The Cavaliers (2-0) won on a 90-yard kickoff return in the final minute by Chase Stern. The Millers dropped to 1-1 in their home opener.
