Jay Leonard kicked a career-long 46-yard field goal with two seconds remaining to lift McDaniel past Gettysburg, 17-14, yesterday in Westminster.

Leonard's field goal, his first successful kick of the season, was the longest McDaniel field goal since 1981.

The Green Terror (2-3) held off a late rally by the Bullets (2-3), who tied the game with 6:39 to go on a touchdown run from running back Tom Sturges.

Sturges shredded the Green Terror defense for 189 rushing yards, but Leonard's late-game heroics propelled McDaniel to its first Centennial Conference win of the season.

Eric Zwilsky (64 yards) and Brad Baer (45 yards) led the McDaniel offense as it rushed for a season-high 130 yards.

Johns Hopkins 14, Franklin and Marshall 7 -- The visiting Blue Jays forced five turnovers and held the Diplomats' offense to 60 yards rushing as they dropped Franklin and Marshall. Johns Hopkins (2-3) scored all of its points in the first half. Evan Earnest caught a 13-yard touchdown pass and Phil Roberts ran for a 3-yard score to stake the Blue Jays to an early lead. The Diplomats (2-3) scored on a 61-yard touchdown pass with 9:56 left, but Johns Hopkins squelched the late comeback when Dan Requena picked off Kyle Turner's pass in the end zone.

Wesley 32, Frostburg State 7 -- Aaron Jackson ran for 144 yards on 18 carries to lead the visiting Wolverines (5-0) past the Bobcats. Frostburg State (0-4) never found a rhythm offensively as the Wesley defense dominated. The Wolverines allowed 178 total yards, including 57 rushing. Jeremy Robinson ran for two touchdowns for Wesley, which led 17-0 entering the fourth quarter. The Bobcats scored their lone touchdown on a 2-yard run by Shanorm Young (Poly), but Eric Lowery returned the ensuing kickoff 89 yards for a score.
