Varsity roundup (Sept. 22): No date yet for finish of football game between Dunbar, Mervo

No date has been given for completing the Friday night football game between No. 6 Dunbar and No. 10 Mervo that was shut down by the Baltimore City Fire Marshal.

The game was halted because there were too many people in the parking lots and around the fences of the soldout game. Baltimore City police also reported that there were "multiple fights" outside the stadium although no serious injuries were reported.


Mervo coach Patrick Nixon and a city schools police officer said the game was suspended because emergency vehicles could not have gotten to the school side of the stadium had there been an emergency.

When the game was halted with 1:58 to go in the third quarter, Dunbar led 16-8 but Mervo's offense had picked up momentum in the second half and was on the Dunbar 32-yard line.


Archbishop Wood (Pa.) 20, No. 2 Archbishop Spalding 7: The host Vikings (2-2) broke a 7-7, first-quarter tie with a 13-0 run over the next three quarters. The Cavaliers fell to 1-1-1.

No. 4 Mount Saint Joseph 49, Gilman 6: Billy Atkins completed 9 of 10 passes for 171 yards and four touchdowns as the host Gaels (4-1, 1-0 Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) routed the Greyhounds (0-5, 0-1). Marlowe Wax had 13 carries for 177 yards and three touchdowns for Mount Saint Joseph.

Saint James 38, Douglass 6: Andre Myers caught three touchdown passes (28-yards, 5-yards and 42-yards) to lead the host Saints (3-1) past the Mighty Ducks (3-1). The game was called with 11:24 left to play because Douglass couldn't field enough lineman.
