Around the league

Long Reach 13, Atholton 12

Long Reach schocked previously undefeated Atholton, 13-12, on Friday night. The Lighting defense, which had allowed a league worst 39.33 points per game coming into this week, came through with an inspired performance, stopping Atholton on what would have been a game-winning two-point conversion attempt in the fourth quarter.

"It was incredible," Long Reach coach Pete Hughes said. "Our kids have never given up, even when their backs are against the wall."

Daquan Dixon scored both touchdowns for the Lightning, and Xavier Haywood-Irani paced the Long Reach ground game. Long Reach rushed for 268 yards and 14 first downs, and converted seven times on third or fourth down.

It was the first win of the season for Long Reach, which had not beaten Atholton since 2008.

"If we play with the kind of emotion and intensity we had tonight we have a good chance of winning out and going to the playoffs," Hughes said. "That's our goal."

Luke Casey led the Atholton offense with 128 rushing yards and a touchdown, and he completed four passes — three of them to Keyon Pinnock for 23 yards. Isaac Murray rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown.

Cody Stolar (12), Brandon Anthony (9) and Brian Gsell (8) led the Atholton defense.

Last week, Atholton defeated Howard, 35-34, when the Lions fell short trying to go for the winning two-point conversion.
