Matt Winger gave Atholton coach Chuck Fales a game to remember last night.

Winger, a senior, rushed for 341 yards and four touchdowns as the host Raiders beat Rockville, 40-22, squaring both teams' records at 1-1.

"I've been coaching 26 years, and I've never had a back go for 341 yards," said Fales. "He had a heck of a game, and the offensive line blocked really well for him."

Winger broke loose for touchdowns on runs from scrimmage of 77 and 80 yards on his first two carries in the opening quarter. He added 65- and 45-yard touchdown runs in the second and third quarters.

One other note: Winger played just three quarters.

"I benched him after three quarters," said Fales, "because we had the game in hand. But the way he was running, I think he might have gone for 400 if I'd left him in."

Wilde Lake 24, No. 7 Long Reach 21: Junior running back Zach Brown rushed for 138 yards and scored twice, once on a 70-yard reception, to help the Wildecats (1-1) upset the visiting Lightning.

Long Reach's Keith Richison returned a kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown to keep his team close late, but the Wildecats' wishbone backfield wore down Long Reach (1-1) on the next drive, chewing up the remaining four minutes.

No. 8 Glenelg 48, Howard 20: Senior running back Trey Crayton carried the Gladiators (2-0) past the visiting Lions (1-1) with 229 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries. Senior quarterback Will O'Donnell added 115 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

The game opened fast, with Glenelg gaining a 20-12 lead after one quarter.

Senior wide receiver Duane Owens caught two passes for 48 yards and two touchdowns for Howard.

No. 15 Eastern Tech 24, New Town 0: Justin Whitlock rushed six times for 31 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion as the host Mavericks (1-1) shut out the Titans (1-1).

Also for Eastern Tech, Steven Rice had seven carries for 72 yards and a touchdown and Jerry Hauberger had 15 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown.

Douglass 21, Lake Clifton 14: Wide receiver Antoine Smithson's 35-yard touchdown pass to Edward Pullen with four minutes left lifted the visiting Ducks (2-0) over the Lakers (0-2).

Smithson, who also kicked the extra point, finished with 76 total yards that included a 3-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter.
