Junior Antonio Bruce and sophomore Kevin Fulton rushed for touchdowns of 3 and 10 yards, and senior Sammy Sheldon kicked two extra points and a 29-yard field goal in Milford Mill's 17-14 Baltimore County 2A-1A victory over visiting Overlea.

Senior Danez Jones registered two sacks, Charles Blue had an interception, and Brandon Ragin recovered a fumble as the defending conference champion Millers (4-0 overall, 3-0 league) defeated their eighth straight county opponent, and their 15th in the past 16 games.

Joe Coates had 11 tackles and Chris Earl had eight for the Millers, who led 10-0 at halftime on the way to beating the Falcons (3-1, 2-1) for the fourth consecutive time.

"We gave them life in the second half," Blue said. "We had to go a lot harder in the fourth quarter."

The Falcons were within 10-7 after a 4-yard touchdown by K.C. Speis, and created the final margin with 6:26 to play on a 6-yard score by Javier Morales.

"We were up big against a good team, but we let it get too close," said Jones, whose sacks helped quell the Falcons' final drive.

"We came out in the second half and jumped all over them," Overlea coach Keith Robinson said. "Mistakes in big games like this will kill you."

The Millers play host to neighborhood rival New Town (3-1, 2-1) on Saturday.

Early in overtime, Mavericks goalie Kelly Gallagher made one of her eight saves, batting a shot from Ashley Cumberland over the crossbar.
