Baltimore Sun Sunday - - VARSITY -

Ham­mond faced a fourth-and-1 on its own 18. Bell de­cided to go for it rather than punt. The Golden Bears were suc­cess­ful on QB sneaks in the game but strug­gled with their pre­vi­ous punts.

“Hon­estly, I couldn’t have talked the kids out of it,” Bell said. “All 11 guys said they wanted to go for it. I will al­ways trust our kids.”

Grin­wis got the yard needed, but Reser­voir head coach Bryan Cole was un­happy dur­ing and af­ter the game that the of­fi­ci­at­ing crew did not mea­sure the spot.

“They never put the link on the chain to know where to re­set it and check it,” Cole said. “That’s why they didn’t mea­sure it. That was a key part of the game.

“Do we end up win­ning? I don’t know. But in that sit­u­a­tion at the end of the game, to not be able to get a mea­sure­ment be­cause no­body put the chain on, it’s not nice when you’re away.”

Ham­mond punted later on the drive, but a Brown pass, which was de­flected into the air, was in­ter­cepted by Nowlin.

“We play to­gether as a team and fight for each other,” Nowlin said of the Golden Bears de­fense. “No one is bet­ter than us on de­fense, and we play for each other. Ev­ery­body has each other’s back.”

Both teams are back in ac­tion next week. Ham­mond plays at Mar­riotts Ridge, while Reser­voir trav­els to Atholton.
