Fifteenth-ranked and undefeated Bowie scored on three of its first four possessions and coasted to a 38-14 victory over visiting Northwestern yesterday to remain atop the Prince George's AA League.

The Bulldogs (8-0, 7-0 in the league) were led by running back/safety Kevin Jackson, who rushed 12 times for 121 yards, helped set up one of his two touchdowns with a recovery of a fumbled punt and intercepted Doug Hill's pass to lead to another Bowie score.

"I expected it to be tough throughout the whole ball game," said Jackson, who was surprised by the margin of victory. "{Northwestern's} mechanics were pretty good, but the heat might have gotten to them."

Poor pass blocking by Northwestern, which allowed Hill to be sacked seven times and forced him into two interceptions, had more to do with it than the heat. So did dropped passes and miscues by the special teams. Bowie's Green Lewis blocked a punt at the 8 that was recovered by Ronnie Jackson for another score.

"Our game plan, they {Bowie} just took us right out of it," said Northwestern Coach John Brooks, whose team dropped to 5-3, 4-3.

Conversely, Bowie's offensive line gave quarterback Mike Young great protection, which enabled him to complete three of eight passes for 94 yards, including a 38-yard touchdown to Alan Hansen down the middle.

Kevin Jackson recovered Julian Blair's fumbled punt at the Northwestern 10 and scored four plays later from the 1. Mark Fitzpatrick's conversion kick made it 7-0. Fitzpatrick capped off the next possession with a 39-yard field goal.Northwestern (5-3)
