Quarterback Bryan Wolfe scored from the 5-yard line on the game's final play to lift John Carroll over host Archbishop Spalding, 20-19, in Severn last night.

"It was a bootleg and I faked to Dane Frank, who had been running up the middle most of the drive," said Wolfe, who capped the Patriots' 13-play, 69-yard drive in the final 2:12 by scoring on fourth-and-goal.

"We thought they would be keying on him, and I faked it and just came around and saw the end zone. It was one of the greatest thrills of my life."

The Patriots virtually ended the Cavaliers' hopes of gaining a share of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference title while earning a chance to control their own destiny.

The defending co-champion Patriots (with Boys' Latin) imropved to 4-4 overall and stayed alive at 3-1 in the conference. Spalding fell to 5-2 and 1-2.

John Carroll and Spalding have both lost to Boys' Latin. The Patriots could gain a share of the crown again if Pallotti (7-1, 3-0) wins at home today over Boys' Latin (4-2, 3-0) and John Carroll defeats Pallotti on Nov. 5.
