Atholton shocks No. 7 River Hill

Atholton ended No. 7 River Hill's 46-game regular season winning streak with a 10-0 win in Columbia. River Hill hasn't been shut out since Sept. 8, 2001, when it lost to Patuxent, 55-0.

"It's a huge hurdle," Atholton Coach Kyle Schmitt said. "They're the best program in the county, if not the state."

Junior quarterback Brian McMahon scored on a four-yard run in the first quarter and made a game-saving play in the third. After throwing an interception, he chased down and tackled the defender who made the pick. On the ensuing possession, Atholton proceeded to stuff River Hill on fourth down.

The Raiders' defense came up big all evening. In the first quarter, with River Hill deep in Atholton territory, Curtis Pumphrey forced a fumble that was recovered by Cameron Fogle.

Atholton improved to 3-2 overall, 3-2 in Howard County; River Hill fell to 4-1, 4-1.

Mark O'Hara, Damascus RB

The senior running back took over for fourth-ranked Damascus in its 35-14 victory over Springbrook in a matchup of 4-0 Montgomery teams. O'Hara carried 21 times for 284 yards and scored the last of the Hornets' five TDs in the victory.


Rain moves handful of games

While most of Friday's games went on as scheduled, the mid-week rains that hit the area left some fields unplayable, notably in Southern Maryland, which had three games postponed Friday. Chopticon at McDonough and Great Mills at Lackey will be played today at 10 a.m.; Westlake at Leonardtown will be Monday at 6:15 p.m. No. 18 Seneca Valley's game at Kennedy also was pushed to today at 10.
