Brown's Town

Senior running back Randy Brown not only scored the game-winning touchdown on a 61-yard screen pass last night at Richard Montgomery, he also amassed 104 yards rushing to give him four straight 100-yard games.

He has 471 yards on the ground this season and had 165 total yards last night.

Hurting Knights

The pain continued for winless Wilson. A broken play helped Ballou to a win in yesterday's DCIAA game, and the Knights -- already without two starting offensive linemen -- also lost linebacker Justin Bolding.

Bolding left yesterday's 21-14 loss with a broken arm.

Already out are OLs Paris Davis (broken foot) and David Shackleford (fractured wrist).

Whalen Hurting

Thomas Stone All-Met Marcus Whalen, who usually plays running back and linebacker, only was on the field for four snaps on defense in yesterday's 7-6 win over La Plata. Whalen, who managed a mere 196 yards rushing, said his injured right foot prevented him from playing much on defense. His coach, Rich Callahan, said Whalen's practice time was limited during the week. "My foot was really throbbing and it started to hurt a lot after halftime, but as long as I'm able to run and not stop on it, it goes away."

Whalen said he expects to play defense next week against Great Mills.
