St. Paul's sophomore quarterback Anthony Pino keeps getting better and better, even to the point where he can share top billing in the Crusaders' offensive schemes with Towson-bound running back Dale Harris, senior wide-out Teddy Martinez or junior running back Kaylon Johnson.
While Harris and Johnson both scored twice, Pino ran the offense to perfection and tossed three touchdown passes to lead No. 9 St. Paul's past rival Boys' Latin, 42-16, Friday on the Lakers' J. Duncan Smith Field.
The victory capped an unbeaten regular season in the MIAA B Conference for the Crusaders (9-0), who earned only their second win in the past eight years over the Lakers (5-5) in a series they lead by a 39-19-1 margin.
No. 3 River Hill 55, Howard 20: Evan Griffin rushed for three touchdowns and made a 25-yard reception for one and Austin Altman threw five touchdown passes as the host Hawks (10-0) captured the Howard County title.
No. 4 Arundel 35, Southern 6: Jack Gordon was 9-for-13 passing for 181 yards and four touchdowns as the host Wildcats defeated the Bulldogs to remain unbeaten and improved their record to 10-0. Tyler Young had six catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the win.
No. 7 Franklin 34, Woodlawn 12: Jackson Thornton was 8-for-18 for 138 yards and two touchdowns, and Reggie Ellis had 94 yards on eight carries as the Indians beat the host Warriors in a Baltimore County league game. Franklin's record improved to 9-1, and with the win the Indians claim the No. 1 seed in 3A North.
Perry Hall 31, Hereford 28: John Myers kicked a 50-yard field goal as the clock ran out to lift the Gators over the visiting Bulls in Harford County. With the win, Perry Hall eliminated Hereford from the playoffs.
