October 24, 2004|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

Junior Ryan Callahan rushed for 341 yards for the second time this season and posted his fifth 200-yard game to lead No. 10 Old Mill to a 49-28 victory over Arundel yesterday.

Callahan, who carried 28 times, totaled 266 of his yards on touchdown runs of 78, 61, 83 and 44 yards, coming up 1 yard short again of the Anne Arundel County single-game rushing record of 342, set by Old Mill's Brashaad Mayweather in 2002.

Old Mill (7-1) also blocked three punts, with defensive end Shane Rickmon turning two of them into touchdowns against the Wildcats (5-3).

Callahan already has set school season records for rushing yards (1,911), total touchdowns (30), touchdown runs (29) and total points (180). He has carried 178 times for an average of 10.7 per attempt.

In less than two varsity seasons, Callahan has 47 career touchdowns, one shy of the school record of 48 by Kelvin Collins (1998-2000).

With two regular-season games left and likely at least one playoff game for Old Mill, Callahan has a chance to break the Anne Arundel County records of 2,346 rushing yards, 32 total touchdowns, 30 touchdown runs and 198 total points, each set by Eric Venerable of Annapolis in 13 games in 2000.

The state record for touchdowns in a season is 42 by Chad Bradley of Damascus in 1996.

No. 4 Broadneck 45, North Carroll 7: Quarterback Tony Marino threw two scoring passes, Brandon Johnson ran for three touchdowns, and Chris Desautels set a state public school record for career field goals as the Bruins clinched their fifth straight Class 4A playoff berth.

Desautels' 29-yard field goal, the final score of the game for the Bruins (8-0), was his fifth of the season and 20th of his career. The overall state record is 33 by DeMatha's David DeArmas (1989-1990).

Desautels also was 6-for-6 in extra-point attempts.

A touchdown pass by John Snyder gave the visiting Knights (2-6) a 7-0 lead after the first quarter before the Bruins scored twice in the second quarter to take a 14-7 lead at the half. Broadneck broke it open in the third quarter with three touchdowns.

Pallotti 41, Boys' Latin 20: Quarterback Kevin Olive was 8-for-12 for 157 yards and threw touchdown passes of 9 and 76 yards, respectively, to Dustin Meehan and Trevin Parrish.

Parrish also rushed for 141 yards and three touchdowns in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference victory over the two-time defending champions.

Harold Morton rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown, and second-team All-Metro Tim Jennings had an interception and a fumble recovery as the Panthers moved to 8-1 overall (4-0 league).

With no losses in the league, Pallotti can win the crown outright by defeating John Carroll on Nov. 5. The Lakers are 4-3, 3-1.

No. 2 Hereford 72, Towson 7: Kicker Ryan Farrell tied the state record for extra points in a game, set in 1925, with 10 in the Bulls' victory. The Bulls also set a school record for most points in a game.
