|RUNNING WILD—Rasheed McCamey of Carrick ran wild on the Cupples turf against Westinghouse, Sept. 17. McCamey rushed for three touchdowns in the 42-0 win against the Bulldogs.
Running back Patrick Ferguson provided most of the offense, carrying the ball 28 times for 162 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Mike Pfleger completed 5 of 16 passes for 54 yards for the Dragons.

He finished with 9 of 20 completions for 94 yards and a 28-yard touchdown pass to Sean Momnan in the second quarter.
Schenley 24, Oliver 0

“We’ve wanted to be considered a running team for some time now,” said Schenley coach Jason Bell. “We’d like to be consistent with that, running the ball 60 percent and passing the ball 40 percent, and it felt good to see that we’re getting closer to that.“
DeAndre Black was on the receiving end of a 71-yard touchdown pass from Calvin Beck in the second quarter. Black also scored on a 4-yard run for the Spartans first score.
