Quarterback Zach DiIonno threw for 280 yards and three touchdowns as Johns Hopkins rallied past host Gettysburg, 37-17, yesterday on Shirk Field at Musselman Stadium.

The Blue Jays (5-1, 2-1 Centennial Conference) trailed 10-7 before going on a 30-0 scoring run.

The win marks the second straight and the 19th in the past 21 games for Hopkins.

After the Bullets (0-6, 0-2) took a 10-7 lead late in the second quarter, the Blue Jays scored 10 points in the final 90 seconds for a 17-10 lead at halftime.

Hopkins put together two scoring drives: a six-play, 69-yard drive capped by an 18-yard touchdown pass from DiIonno to Anthony Triplin (Gilman) and a field goal with 30 seconds left in the first half to take the lead for good.

McDaniel 20, Dickinson 0: Quarterback Brad Baer threw for one touchdown and rushed for another as the host Green Terror (5-1, 3-0 Centennial Conference) recorded its second straight shutout and third in the past four games.

The Green Terror shut out Gettysburg, 31-0, last week and blanked Catholic, 34-0, on Sept. 18.

The McDaniel defense held the Red Devils (3-3, 1-2) to 157 total yards of offense.

Baer completed three passes, two to Jamie Unger (South Carroll), including a 98-yard touchdown for a 7-0 Terror lead.

It became the longest play from scrimmage and longest reception in McDaniel history.

Salisbury 44, Kean 0: Fullback Leroy Satchell rushed for a career-high 229 yards and two touchdowns to lead the host Sea Gulls (7-0) past the Cougars (2-5) in front of 3,263 fans at Sea Gull Stadium.

Satchell scored on runs of 6 and 56 yards in the opening quarter to give Salisbury the early lead.

The Salisbury defense limited Kean to 107 total yards, including just 11 yards rushing. The Gulls recorded a season-high eight sacks, for a loss of 63 yards, and recorded their first shutout since blanking Kean, 21-0, last year.

Satchell had 157 yards rushing in the first quarter.
