Football: Lackey earns big win against Northern

Lackey earned its first victory against a Calvert County team since 2008 win a 31-6 win against Northern. The Patriots averaged 32 points a game in the first four weeks but were held to just one touchdown in a loss to the Chargers.

“It’s a really big win for us as a program,” Coach John Lush said. “It did a lot for the kids’ morale.”

Running back Eriq Fadahunsi contributed 15 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns. The junior started last year but hasn’t been able to get himself going quite as well before this game.

“We do running back by committee, but he really took it on his shoulders this week,” Lush said.

Lineman Mike Laury had eleven tackles — four for loss — and missed just three snaps the entire game. Laury, Nyle Martin-Cooper, Dejon Marshall and Delondo Boyd combined for 12 tackles for loss and one sack.

“Our defensive line just played really well for the second week in a row,” Lush said. “We took away some of the things Northern likes to do.”

An 80-yard punt return for a touchdown from Cortelle Simpson, his third of the season, was the “backbreaker” to put the Chargers up 18-0. Lacey McMillan-Kenney picked off a pass for a 50-yard interception on the next drive to set the Chargers (4-1) up for their second touchdown in 40 seconds.

“This is our first big win against a Calvert team since 2008, and the kids really haven’t experienced that kind of victory,” Lush said. “We can’t have a let down. We have to move in a good direction — we don’t want this win to make us.”

Elsewhere in the conference, running back Arnez Bowens made his 2013 debut for the Hurricanes with 35 carries for 274 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-6 win against Chopticon. North Point (3-2) earned its third consecutive win with a victory against Leonardtown, 27-16. Patuxent’s Rafiq Douglas scored two touchdowns in the first quarter of a win at McDonough (0-5) Friday.
