South Carroll 28, Winters Mill 26: Mason Gavin led South Carroll into a first-and-goal scenario late in Saturday's game against Winters Mill with the clock winding down and the Cavaliers out of timeouts.

Then, disaster for the Cavs — Gavin turned backward and ran toward the ball as it skidded past him on a botched snap. He fell on it around the 12-yard line, and SC faced third down with time ticking away.

The senior kept his composure on the next pay, however, and it wound being the biggest of the game — Gavin used his legs to avoid pressure from the Falcons and found Brett Finzel for a touchdown pass with 20 seconds to play. An extra point later, South Carroll led 28-26.

The defense held on Winters Mill's final possession, and the Cavs left Parker Field with a win in their Carroll County Athletic League opener.

Oakland Mills 44, Marriotts Ridge 12: Having lost to Marriotts Ridge each of the last three seasons, Oakland Mills coach Tom Browne decided to throw a new wrinkle into the playbook prior to Friday's annual meeting between the two class 2A rivals.

Pounding the ball on the ground with two tight-end sets, it didn't take long for the traditionally pass-first Scorpions (3-2) to reap the rewards. Oakland Mills (3-2) rushed the ball for more than 250 yards in the first half alone on the way to a 30-0 lead at intermission.
