Yard line inside which Chesapeake-AA’s Nick Means recovered a Severna Park fumble in the final seconds to preserve a 19-15 Cougars' win


Left in the game when Patterson Mill’s Luke DePasquale ran 78 yards for the game-winning touchdown in a 26-20 win over Edgewood

Interceptions by Archbishop Spalding in its 29-11 win over Mount St. Joseph


Shutouts posted in seven games by River Hill, Dunbar and Northwestern


Undefeated teams left in the Baltimore metro area – River Hill, Arundel, Westminster, St. Paul’s, and St. Frances


Straight touchdowns scored by City quarterback Tayshawn Mayo – four rushing and another on his forced fumble recovered in the end zone -- to open the 42-6 win over Digital Harbor


Straight passes completed by Milford Mill quarterback Kyle McEachern to open the game and spark a 42-35 upset of Hereford
