Havre de Grace senior Jordan Hawthorne delivered all the treats Friday night to lead the Warriors past visiting Patterson Mill, 36-7, in an UCBAC Chesapeake Division game.
Hawthorne rushed for 218 yards and four touchdowns on 11 carries, while having a 95-yard interception return for touchdown called back.
Hawthorne's first score came on an 70-yard jaunt to finish the Warriors (3-3 league, 6-3) first possession. Hawthorne also kicked the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Hawthorne next ran 11 yards for a score in the second quarter and Chris Harris added a two-point conversion by run. Havre de Grace led 15-0 at the half.
Hawthorne was right back at it to start the second half. The speedy running back raced 65 yards for his third and then added another point-after-kick.
The Warriors only touchdown that didn't include Hawthorne was also scored in the third quarter. Josh Penn made a diving catch of an Jack Eberhardt pass that covered 13 yards. Hawthorne's kick boosted the lead to 29-0.
Needing 12 yards to reach 200, Hawthorne reeled off an 30-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter to end his night. He did add the final extra-point as well for a 36-0 lead.
Patterson Mill (1-5, 3-6), which lost starting running back Trey Hall in the first half to an potentially serious knee injury, scored late when Justin Erkoboni hauled in a 54-yard touchdown catch. The Huskies added the extra-point to close the scoring.
Cobras fall to Elks
In Susquehanna play, Harford Tech (1-4, 2-7) lost 36-20 to visiting Elkton.
Tech gave up a 70-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage and was trailing 22-0 at the end of the first quarter.
Tech scored at the start of the second quarter with a 24-yard rumble by Elijah Minter and the conversion failed. Tech recovered the ensuing onside kick and added another score by Minter to go in at the half trailing, 22-12.
Tech went three-and-out on the opening drive of the second half and Elkton added to its lead by scoring on its first drive.
Tech responded with an three-yard touchdown run by Derick Logan and Logan ran the conversion in as well, narrowing the score to 28-20.
Elkton, though, was too much as the Elks scored on their next drive to end the scoring.
Minter rushed for 189 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. Logan added the touchdown and two-point conversion on 10 carries for 85 yards.
With Halloween less than a few hours away, the two teams made it seem like the Fourth of July early on. The pair combined for 21 points in a span of a little more than a minute.
Aberdeen (5-1, 8-1) opened the scoring with its first possession, after forcing the Panthers to punt. Ben Richardson scored on a 13-yard run with 7:25 left in the first quarter.
Owen Smith's first of seven extra-point kicks made it 7-0. Perryville responded on special teams when Tyrell Hollingsworth took the ensuing kickoff back 92 yards to paydirt.
Ben Savick's kick tied the game at 7 with 7:07 left, but Aberdeen wasted little time, regaining the lead.
From the Panthers 46, Reggie Washington threw 31 yards to Mark Meynisse. Three plays later, Meynisse jumped over a defender to pull, in an 18-yard touchdown pass. The kick made it 14-7 at the 6:24 mark.
Perryville evened the score at 14 all early in quarter two. Antony Smith scored on a three-yard run and Savick's kick was good.
Aberdeen appeared to have a long touchdown pass from Washington to Chapree Cromwell, but an illegal shift penalty wiped out the 71-yard play.
Two snaps later, Perryville got an interception from Ray Woods at the Aberdeen 45. The Panthers used it to take their only lead of the game.
Quarterback Dominic Gugliotta, subbing for an injured Elijah Johnson who was hurt last week, scored on an one-yard run with 1:44 left in the half. The extra point was missed, but Perryville enjoyed its only lead, 20-14.
Aberdeen used the most out of the short time that was left, going 77 yards in eight plays. Isaiah Jackson made a diving reception of an Washington pass that covered 13 yards as time ran out. Smith's kick put the Eagles back ahead, 21-20.
The Eagles came right out in the second half where they left off in the first. Richardson ran 27 yards for a score and Crowmell hauled in an 35-yard touchdown pass. The Eagles led, 35-20, with 3:53 left in quarter three.
Perryville (2-4, 5-4) was able to score a touchdown just five seconds into the final quarter. Gugliotta sneaked the ball in for his second touchdown of the night. The run for two on the conversion was stopped.
Richardson added his third touchdown of the game with 7:03 to play on an one-yard run.
Perryville's final touchdown came on an 22-yard screen pass to Smith. The failed conversion pass left Aberdeen ahead, 42-32, with 2:21 to play.
Aberdeen then added two more scores to close out the game. Dramel Boykin raced 46 yards for a score and Tavaris Ivory took an interception back as time expired.
Also in Chesapeake play on Thursday night, Bel Air (5-1, 8-1) beat visiting C. Milton Wright (1-5, 3-6), 55-36, while in Susquehanna play, host Edgewood (5-0, 5-4) defeated Joppatowne (2-3, 3-6), 26-15.
In Bel Air's win, the Bobcats had a couple huge and near record-breaking performances. Brad Casale rushed for 436 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries. The state single game rushing record is 446 yards
The Bobcats also rushed for what is believed to be 599 yards. Coach David Huryk says the staff is checking over the stats again, but if it stays, the total will break the single game rushing total of 594 yards.
