Quinten Bell ran for a 22-yard touchdown, and Charlie Brown recorded a safety to give visiting Edgewood a 10-0 victory over Fallston in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game last night.

A driving rainstorm turned the field into a quagmire and slowed both offenses, but Edgewood (2-3, 2-0 conference) made just enough big plays to win. Brown sacked Fallston quarterback Sean Kelly on the first play of the second quarter for a safety and a 2-0 lead.

Kelly was trying a play-action pass from the Fallston 3-yard line and had a receiver open, but Brown burst through from his defensive end spot and easily sacked the junior quarterback. That 2-0 lead held up until the first play of the fourth quarter, when Bell ran off the right tackle for the 22-yard score on fourth-and-one. He then added the two-point conversion.

Edgewood wanted to pass more and wound up throwing the ball several times, despite the bad weather. Quarterback Jordan Hancock played a strong game and ran the Rams' offense smoothly in the rain. Edgewood was able to move the ball and even passed enough to loosen the Fallston defense. "Even though it rained, we still tried to pass," Hancock said. "It worked out OK."

Bell helped the Edgewood offense work just fine. He ran for 82 yards in the second half and kept making just enough plays to keep Fallston (3-2, 0-2) off-balance. The Cougars found more trouble moving the ball as Kelly was under pressure throughout the night.

No. 1 Gilman 20, Mount St. Joseph 0 -- David Johnson had a 99-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter as the Greyhounds improved to 5-0. The visiting Gaels dropped to 1-4.

No. 10 Dunbar 38, Walbrook 8 -- Maurice Portee and freshman Tavon Austin combined for 254 yards rushing and three touchdowns as the Poets (3-2) trounced the host Warriors (2-3).

North Harford 10, C. Milton Wright 0 -- Bryan Woolson scored on a 15-yard run in the second quarter, and Corey Jubb had a safety in the fourth to seal the victory for the host Hawks (4-1). The Mustangs fell to 2-2.

Perry Hall 13, Franklin 12 -- John Gregory kicked the game-winning extra point after a 55-yard run by senior Tim Wells with four minutes remaining as the Gators (5-0) defeated the visiting Indians (3-2).

Northwestern 18, Southwestern 0 -- Freshman running back Terrance West ran for 120 yards and one touchdown, helping the Wildcats (2-3) grind out a victory in the mud against the visiting Sabers (1-3).
