Calvert junior quarterback Anthony Lorenzano, who missed the final eight games of last season after having a benign tumor removed from his spine, is fully recovered, and Northern can attest to that. Lorenzano completed 9 of 12 passes for 156 yards in Calvert's 35-14 homecoming victory Thursday. With the game tied at 14 heading into the fourth quarter, Lorenzano threw two touchdown passes and Calvert scored 21 unanswered points. . . .
Just when No. 5 Westlake seemed to overcome the injury bug, the Wolverines might have suffered their biggest loss yet, when senior running back Aaris Reed left Friday's 32-8 victory over Great Mills on a stretcher with a knee injury. The North Carolina-bound Reed will have an MRI exam this morning to determine the extent of the injury. His backfield mate, senior Pha'Terrell Washington, returned from missing two games with a sore foot and rushed for a season-high 154 yards. Quarterback Mike Pegues, who has missed the past two games with a fractured non-throwing arm, will get his cast removed this week. . . .
One of the season's biggest surprises has been Bowie, which has won six consecutive games and is on the verge of returning to the postseason for the first time since winning the Maryland 4A title in 2001. The Bulldogs, led by quarterback Sean Alston and running back Jason Randall, have a challenging schedule remaining, however, beginning Saturday vs. No. 6 Douglass at home and then against Eleanor Roosevelt and Suitland. Those teams are a combined 17-4. . . .
Of the seven games between Prince George's public schools played Friday and Saturday, five were shutouts. The combined score of the games: 222-18.
