Lackey senior Dante Page scored three touchdowns in the first seven and a half minutes of the Chargers' 49-7 win over visiting Huntingtown in a Southern Maryland Athletic Conference game Friday night in Indian Head.
Page returned the game's opening kickoff 70 yards and followed with a 24-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Aaron Smith on Lackey's first play from scrimmage. He caught a 49-yard touchdown pass on the Chargers' next possession, and after Huntingtown was forced to punt on its ensuing possession, Page returned it 34 yards for a score.
Lackey improved to 4-2 overall and in the SMAC; Huntingtown is 0-6, 0-6.
All-Out Ground Assault
Without throwing a single pass, Theodore Roosevelt marched to a 37-0 victory over visiting Cardozo in a D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association West Division game.
Led by Jelani Walker's 159 yards on nine carries, the Rough Riders rushed 27 times for 295 yards -- nearly 11 yards per carry. Charles Wallace added 12 carries for 89 yards for Roosevelt (4-4, 1-1).
Cardozo fell to 1-5, 0-1.
After last weekend's heavy rain and the several damp days that followed, a handful of high school football games were postponed yesterday because of poor field conditions.
Among the games pushed back were Glenelg's game at Wilde Lake, which was originally scheduled for last night, and No. 3 Hylton's home game against Gar-Field, which was to be played tonight. Both games will be played Monday, with the game at Wilde Lake at 5 p.m. and the game at Hylton at 7 p.m.
Additionally, Long Reach's home game against Oakland Mills, originally scheduled for last night, will probably be played on Monday after a Long Reach guidance counselor was found dead in a school bathroom yesterday afternoon, assistant principal Clovis Thomas said.
Thomas said school officials will meet this morning at 10 a.m. to decide the exact time when the game will be played.
