In a season that has featured a lot of lopsided games in Baltimore-area high school football, this past weekend stood out for its close games. Impressive stats often emerge from the tightest games, so here’s a look at the ones that stood out in Week 7, including one school record and a couple players closing in on county and/or state records.
1 — Batted passes by Milford Mill defensive back Jawaun Werrell on Franklin’s fourth down in overtime to preserve a 19-13 Millers victory
3 — Sacks by Severna Park’s Jordan Robinson, who also had a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in a 17-12 win over Meade
5 – Yard touchdown run by Winters Mill’s Alex Barnes in overtime to beat Manchester Valley, 26-20
6 — Touchdown passes thrown by Broadneck quarterback Josh Ehrlich in Friday’s 48-30 win over South River — a school single-game record for the freshman, who was 16-for-21 for 303 yards
39.6 – Seconds left when Liberty’s Michael Spitz intercepted a pass to preserve a 28-20 victory over Westminster
43 — Yard field goal kicked by Wilde Lake’s Elwyn Yount, who also nailed a 38-yarder, in a 43-0 win over Hammond
47 — Career touchdown receptions by Broadneck’s Ethon Williams, two shy of the state record set by Max Morris of St. John’s-Prospect Hall in 2004. He needs one more to tie the Anne Arundel County and state public school record set by Arundel’s Ronnie Harris in 2009.
97 — Yard quarterback keeper for a touchdown by Edgewood’s Antwain Banks in a 38-8 win over Aberdeen
