a close game, but it got away from us at the end.”

Stone coun­tered be­fore the in­ter­mis­sion by go­ing 50 yards in seven plays, with Gray launch­ing the Cougars deep into McDonough ter­ri­tory with a 26-yard run off left tackle. After Gray was stuffed on the first two plays from in­side the Rams’ 5-yard line, Har­ris called his own num­ber and plowed for­ward to even the score at 13 at half­time.

Stone re­gained the lead late in the third quar­ter when Har­ris capped an 8-play, 64-yard drive with a 1-yard run. On its first pos­ses­sion of the fourth quar­ter, Har­ris hit Austin Work­man for 27 yards on a mid­dle screen and, three plays later, Thompson found a hole up the mid­dle and raced 23 yards for an­other score that ex­tended the Cougars’ lead to 27-13.

McDonough re­sponded by march­ing 65 yards in nine plays with Golden hit­ting But­ler twice for 40 yards and even­tu­ally Mes­siah Orig­i­nal plowed for­ward from three yards out to nar­row the gap to 27-20 with 3 min­utes 13 sec­onds re­main­ing. But it was not enough in the end.

The Rams travel to Patux­ent for a 7 p.m. kick­off on Fri­day against a Pan­thers team that de­feated pre­vi­ously un­beaten Calvert in Week 6, 23-8.

Stone takes on Westlake in the 301 Clas­sic at 7 p.m. Fri­day. The Wolver­ines were shut out by Lackey in Week 6, 28-0.
