Edmondson tops City, wins 20th in 21 games


Edmondson's 20-7 win over City yesterday marked the No. 5 Redskins' 20th victory in their last 21 football games.

The Redskins, state Class 2A runners-up a year ago, improved to 2-0 as Anthony Tucker rushed for 90 yards and scored twice - an 11-yard run and a 50-yard fumble return.

Danny Dixon also scored on an 80-yard punt return while Darryl McCray carried 17 time for 156 yards for the Redskins.

Host City (1-1) scored first as Lamar Manigo hit Phillip Harris with a 59-yard touchdown pass, but the Knights quarterback left the game late in the first quarter with a wrist injury and did not return. It was the second straight year that Manigo had to leave the Edmondson game with an injury, the extent of which was unkown last night.

No. 7 Patterson 20, Walbrook 14: Antoine Clayborne ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries as No. 7 Patterson slipped past host Walbrook in a Baltimore City contest.

Behind a dominating offensive line anchored by Matthew Williams, Dominique Williams and Eric Mason, the Clippers (2-0) rolled up 271 yards rushing against the Warriors (0-2).

No. 10 Hereford 42, Loch Raven 6: Todd Leitzel rushed for 150 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries and also had an interception as the Bulls (2-0) rolled past the Raiders (1-1) in a Baltimore County tilt.

Mike Rostek scored the first touchdown and kicked six extra points for Hereford.

The Bulls finished with 302 yards rushing and 51 passing.
