Hawks spoil Warriors' homecoming
The North Harford Hawks showed no consideration for Havre de Grace's Homecoming, Friday night, scoring 42 first half points en route to a 42-7 UCBAC Chesapeake Division win.
The Hawks (3-0, 5-2) wasted little time getting in the end zone, needing just six plays to score. Tyler Campbell ran 12 yards for the score, capping a 36-yard drive that was aided on the kickoff by a Havre de Grace face mask penalty.
The Hawks added two more touchdowns in the opening quarter. Quarterback Nic Hammer threw 27 yards to Nick Tittle for a 14-0 lead. Hammer then used his legs on a 51-yard touchdown run in the final half minute of the quarter.
Scott Angstadt then gave the Hawks possession again, picking off a pass and setting he Hawks up at the Warriors 32.
A couple plays later, Campbell (six carries, 35 yards) was back in the end zone for a 28-0 lead.
To make matters worse for Havre de Grace, a fumble on the ensuing kickoff was recovered by North Harford's Josh Welsh.
From the Havre de Grace 26, Hammer tossed a 26-yard touchdown pass to Logan Kopeck on the first play. The Hawks led, 35-0, with 11:38 to play in the half.
North Harford's final points came late in the half on a Ryan Feiss six-yard run. Sean Bowling added all six extra points for the Hawks.
Havre de Grace (1-3, 1-6) avoided the shutout when quarterback Lavell McCullers took a keeper 58 yards for the score on the last play of the third quarter. Geno Nappi provided the extra-point.
Jahmee Ballard led Havre de Grace with 48 yards on nine carries.
Mustangs thunder on new field
C. Milton Wright (3-0, 6-1) had no trouble playing on its own new turf Friday, beating Joppatowne (0-4, 1-6), 36-6, in Chesapeake Division action.
Mustangs quarterback Omar Walker threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for a third.
One touchdown pass went to brother Osiah Walker and the other was caught by Tyler Dameron.
Jake Burnett scored a defensive touchdown on a fumble return and running back Will Hazelton added a rushing touchdown as well.
Aberdeen powers past Bel Air
The Aberdeen Eagles picked up a home-field, Chesapeake (upper) Division victory on Friday night, defeating the Bel Air Bobcats, 38-14.
With the win, Aberdeen moved to 3-4 overall, and 2-1 against Chesapeake opponents. Bel Air fell to 3-4 overall, and 1-3 in Chesapeake Division games.
Leading the Eagles to the victory was quarterback Eric Briggs, who tossed three touchdown passes.
"We played pretty well tonight," Aberdeen coach Johnny Brooks said. "Bel Air plays hard, and leaves everything out on the field. I think we would have had some more points if we hadn't had trouble with fumbled snaps. We fumbled on snaps three times tonight, and that cost us some momentum. That same thing happened when we lost to Perryville, and when we lost to Elkton, too. We need to work on that."
Patterson Mill makes it past Edgewood
The Patterson Mill Huskies (4-3 overall, 3-1 Susquehanna) topped the visiting Edgewood Rams (3-4 overall, 2-2 Susquehanna), 26-20, on Friday night.
