October 15, 2006|By From staff reports

Despite a school-record four field goals from kicker Ben Scott, Johns Hopkins surrendered a fourth-quarter lead and fell to host Gettysburg, 23-18, yesterday in a Centennial Conference game.

Bullets quarterback Matt Flynn capped an eight-play, 73-yard drive with a touchdown pass to Matt Welsh to give Gettysburg (3-3) the lead with 10:58 remaining.

The Bullets capitalized on a botched punt on their next posession as Tom Sturges scored on a 13-yard touchdown to secure the game.

Scott's four field goals broke the previous record of three, which had been done five times (including twice by Scott). Freshman running back Andrew Kase rushed for a career-high 113 yards for Johns Hopkins (2-4).

Dickinson 24, McDaniel 17 -- Red Devils quarterback Matt Torchia threw one touchdown and ran for another to lead Dickinson (5-1) past the host Green Terror (2-4). McDaniel tied the game in the third quarter on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Brad Baer (Westminster) to Matt Gingrich, but the Red Devils scored the next two touchdowns. Baer threw two touchdowns and ran for 82 yards in the loss.

Salisbury 65, Morrisville State 7 -- The host Sea Gulls (2-3) scored 34 points in the first half, including four first-quarter touchdowns to rout the Mustangs (1-5). Ronnie Curley (Howard) led the Salisbury ground attack with 129 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns. Curley also threw for three touchdowns. The Sea Gulls gained 309 yards on the ground.

Thomas More 13, Frostburg State 7 -- Saints running back Monty Collier rushed for 133 yards and one touchdown and Thomas More shut down the Bobcats offense in the second half to keep Frostburg State winless. The Bobcats (0-5) scored on their opening possession but could not manage much offense after that, despite controlling the ball for 39:25. Frostburg's Shanorm Young (Poly) rushed for 113 yards on 30 carries.

Elizabeth City State 16, Bowie State 12 -- The host Bulldogs fell behind early and their late rally fell short as the Vikings spoiled Bowie State's homecoming. Elizabeth City State (6-1) limited the Bulldogs (3-4) to 55 yards rushing and picked off Bowie State quarterback Lamar Manigo twice. Brandon Fields led the Vikings with a game-high 102 yards rushing and one touchdown.
