Prior to yesterday's Maryland state Class 4A quarterfinal playoff game against Severna Park, Springbrook Coach Bob Milloy said his team's success depended on which Springbrook showed up.

Unfortunately for the visitors, tailback Leonard Green showed up and put on a dazzling performance with 234 yards rushing and five touchdowns as the top-ranked Blue Devils easily disposed of Severna Park, 34-3.

The two-time defending state champion Blue Devils (11-0) will play host to Montgomery County foe Wootton (11-0) in a state semifinal game Saturday at 1. Severna Park finished its season at 7-3.

"I think our offense showed up," Milloy said. "We started off a bit shaky, but overall I was pretty pleased. Severna Park was big and tough up front. Green just had a great day."

One of the area's top rushers, with 1,318 yards and 21 touchdowns in the regular season, Green got wonderful blocking and slithered past overeager Falcons for big gains all day. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound senior carried 30 times -- 23 in the first half for 131 yards and two scores as Springbrook took a 14-3 lead.

"We heard that Severna Park felt they could overpower us, so we tried to do the same to them," said Green, who also caught five passes for 76 yards, returned two punts for 35 and played free safety and defensive end. "In the first half, we went inside more. In the second half, we had more success going outside."

Green rushed for 63 of his team's 70 yards on the game's opening drive, capping the 15-play march with a one-yard dive for a 7-0 lead.

Green finished an 83-yard drive with another one-yard dive. He had runs of 14 and 15, and the Falcons had two penalties called against them in the drive.

Severna Park, relying almost exclusively on the tough inside running of John Jennings (95 yards on 24 carries), had only one sustained drive, ending with a 25-yard field goal by Marc Anderson that cut the lead to 7-3 in the first quarter.

Otherwise, the defense -- led by Linwood Davis, John Kennedy and Tyrone Frazier -- shut down Severna Park. Springbrook has allowed 10 points in its last five games.

"We wanted to contain runners Jennings and {Marcus} Coates, keep them inside," said Kennedy, an All-Met tackle last season. "They tried to double-team me, so we switched defenses to force them to run inside."

The rest of the game belonged to Green, who sprinted through a large gap for 36 yards, and later scored on an eight-yard run. Mike Gillespie kicked his third extra point and the lead was 21-3 with just over five minutes left in the third period.

Green, who accounted for 310 of his team's 404 total yards, capped his show with a 15-yard touchdown run and caught a 39-yard scoring pass from Tony Sawyer.
