Dickinson quarterback Matt Torchia ran for two touchdowns and the Dickinson defense held host Johns Hopkins to 46 yards rushing as the Blue Jays dropped their Centennial Conference opener, 21-13.

The Blue Jays (1-3) drove inside the Dickinson 20-yard line in the final minute, but Michael Murray's fourth-down pass was batted away by Ryan Heinig.

Dickinson (3-1) struggled to defend Anthony Triplin (Gilman), who led the Blue Jays with six receptions for 113 yards, including a 63-yard touchdown catch.

Triplin became the third player in Centennial Conference history to reach 200 catches.

Johns Hopkins kicker Ben Scott entered the Centennial Conference record books, kicking two field goals to reach 34 for his career, the most in conference history.

North Carolina Central 35, Bowie State 13 -- The Eagles torched the Bulldogs' secondary for 291 yards and four touchdowns and N.C. Central routed Bowie State in the Prince George's Classic. Eagles receivers Charles Futrell and Kennet Broadway each posted more than 100 yards receiving and combined for three touchdowns. Bowie State (2-3) trailed 21-0 before scoring on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Deon Trotter to Anthony Green with 16 seconds left in the first half.

Salisbury 25, Apprentice 0 -- The visiting Sea Gulls (2-3) jumped on Apprentice (2-2) early in the first quarter and cruised to the shutout. Delanni Spriggs scored on a 4-yard touchdown run and Michael Hatcher had a 30-yard interception return to stake Salisbury to an early 13-0 lead. The Sea Gulls' defense held Apprentice to 55 yards of total offense. Salisbury sacked Apprentice quarterback Kyle Franklin five times and forced three turnovers.

Ursinus 20, McDaniel 0 -- Ted Wallingford completed 15 of 30 passes for 220 yards to lead the host Bears (4-0) to their first victory over the Green Terror since 1996. The Green Terror (1-3) could not find any rhythm on offense. McDaniel rushed for just 4 yards and quarterback Brad Baer threw two interceptions in the Centennial Conference opener for both teams. Devohn Butler had a 68-yard touchdown run and David Ashworth (38 yards, one touchdown) led the Bears' ground attack as Ursinus rolled up 203 yards rushing.
