No. 1 St. Frances football falls behind, roars back for 42-7 win over No. 3 Spalding

For the first time all season, the No. 1 St. Frances football team fell behind an opponent Friday night, but No. 3 Archbishop Spalding’s lead didn’t last long.

The Panthers, who are 8-0 and have allowed just three touchdowns this fall, erased Spalding’s early lead with 42 unanswered points to take a 42-7 victory in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game in Severn.

In the first quarter, the Cavaliers (4-3, 2-2 MIAA) executed their plan, slowing down the game and dominating possession with short gains. On their second drive, quarterback Jayden Umbarger hit Jamari Jones with a 9-yard touchdown pass and Camden Price added the extra point.
