Thomas Stone 38, McDonough 28

The Cougars raced to a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quar­ter and led 31-6 at half­time and 38-12 at the end of the third quar­ter of Fri­day night’s South­ern Mary­land Ath­letic Con­fer­ence Ch­e­sa­peake Di­vi­sion con­test.

Stone third-year head coach Danny Rip­ple sent all his re­serves into the game and McDonough ral­lied for two scores in the fourth to trim the fi­nal mar­gin to 38-28.

Stone quar­ter­back Cole Lu­cia com­pleted 1 of 2 passes for 36 yards and one score and he also ran five times for 63 yards and an­other score. Trent Gask­ins car­ried nine times for 78 yards and two scores to lead the Cougars’ ground game that ac­cu­mu­lated 233 yards and four touch­downs rush­ing on 34 at­tempts. Josh Robert­ston also rushed five times for 48 yards and a score.

Jaden Fer­reira caught one pass for 36 yards and a touch­down and kicker Nicco Var­gas con­nected on all five ex­tra point at­tempts and a 34-yard field goal.

“I thought we did a good job tak­ing con­trol of the game right from the start,” Rip­ple said. “For the most part I thought we dom­i­nated up front. We got up 38-6 late in the third quar­ter and I de­cided to empty the bench at that point. The best part is the re­serves got plenty of play­ing time.”

Stone (3-1 over­all, 1-0 SMAC Ch­e­sa­peake) will be at Calvert at 7 p.m. Fri­day. The Cava­liers (2-2, 1-0) de­feated Lackey in Week 4, 27-6.

McDonough (1-3, 0-1) scored the last 22 points of the game and fin­ished the night with more first downs (14-8) and held the ball for seven min­utes more than the Cougars. The Rams will face Patux­ent at 7 p.m. Fri­day. The Pan­thers (0-4) were edged by St. Charles, 14-8. TED BLACK

Calvert 27, Lackey 6

The vis­it­ing Cava­liers scored two touch­downs early and never re­lin­quished the ad­van­tage en route to Fri­day night’s win over the Charg­ers in a SMAC Ch­e­sa­peake Di­vi­sion con­test.

Calvert run­ning back Dre Mack­all car­ried 21 times for 151 yards and three touch­downs and caught two passes for 30 yards and quar­ter­back Michael Flo­ria com­pleted 6 of 12 passes for 126 yards and an­other score to lead the Cava­liers past the Charg­ers. David All­wine had two re­cep­tions for 45 yards and one touch­down.

Lackey quar­ter­back Robert Mid­dle­ton rushed 14 times for 92 yards and the Charg­ers’ lone score and he com­pleted 4 of 12 passes for 77 yards, con­nect­ing with Linn Jor­dan for 49 yards on Lackey’s long­est play of the night. Run­ning back Jayson Wilmer car­ried seven times for 52 yards in a los­ing cause.

“One thing that stood out is Calvert did a bet­ter job up front,” Lackey head coach John Lush said. “We re­ally couldn’t get our run­ning game go­ing and they did a good job mov­ing the ball against our bigs up front. Calvert is very well-coached and they did a good job con­trol­ling the line of scrim­mage.”

Calvert (2-2, 1-0 SMAC Ch­e­sa­peake) will host Thomas Stone (3-1, 1-0) at 7 p.m. Fri­day. The Cougars knocked off McDonough in Week 4, 38-28.

Lackey (2-2, 0-1) will travel to La Plata (1-3, 0-1) for a 7 p.m. kick­off Fri­day. The Warriors were shut out by West­lake in Week 4, 29-0.
