In a matchup of two of the top teams in the Mary­land In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion ACon­fer­ence, No. 4 Calvert Hall put to­gether a go-ahead, 16-play drive to de­feat No. 3 Arch­bishop Spald­ing, 21-7, on Fri­day.

The win­ning drive spanned the end of the third quar­ter and start of the fourth, eat­ing up more than six min­utes. The Car­di­nals then added an in­surance score three min­utes later.

Calvert Hall, which owns a vic­tory over Henry A. Wise ear­lier this year that ended the Puma’s 43-game win­ning streak, im­proved to 7-1 over­all and 2-1 in the A Con­fer­ence. The Cava­liers fell to 3-2-1 over­all and 1-1 in the con­fer­ence.

Spad­ing’s only score came on an 18-yard touch­down pass from Ausin Tu­tas to Za­kee Wheatley that tied the game in the third quar­ter.

With the game tied at 7 with 4:19 left in the third quar­ter, the Car­di­nals took over at their own 32-yard line. They moved 68 yards on 16 plays and took the lead when Cole Her­bert used a sec­ond ef­fort to get in from the 1 on fourth down. Her­bert kept the drive alive when he caught a pass in the flat and picked up six yards on fourth down from the Spald­ing 40 just eight plays into the drive.

On Spald­ing’s next pos­ses­sion, Jaden Beck­les in­ter­cepted a pass and Sean Tucker scored from 14 yards out on Calvert Hall’s fifth play to make it a two-score game with seven min­utes left.

For a pair of teams used to scor­ing a lot of points, the first half was un­like most of their other games so far this sea­son. Tucker was re­spon­si­ble for the only points of the half when he scored on a 1-yard run late in the first quar­ter to cap off a 10-play, 50-yard drive.

NO. 12 LIB­ERTY 28, NO. 9 WESTMINSTER20: The Lions went up14-0 in the first quar­ter, but the Owls (5-2) erased the deficit and brought the score within eight in the fourth quar­ter.

NO. 8 GLENELG 49, LONG REACH 19: Se­nior run­ning back Wande Owens led the host Gla­di­a­tors (7-0) past the Light­ning (4-3).

Owens, who en­tered the game 326 yards short of break­ing Howard County's all-time rush­ing record, car­ried the ball 32 times for 233 yards and a pair of scores. He also threw for a touch­down, hit­ting Eric Gru­ber wide open down the right side­line for a 29-yard catch and run mid­way through the fourth quar­ter.

ST. MARY’S 28, ST. PAUL’S 7: The vis­it­ing Saints (4-3, 3-0 MIAA B Con­fer­ence) ex­tended their win­ning streak to four games by beat­ing the Cru­saders (4-2, 2-1).

NO. 5 BROAD­NECK 48, SOUTH RIVER 30: Fresh­man quar­ter­back Josh Ehrlich com­pleted 16 of 21 passes for 303 yards and six touch­downs as the Bru­ins im­proved to 7-0 by beat­ing the Sea­hawks.

NO. 15 EDGE­WOOD 38, ABERDEEN 8: The Banks cousins, Deonte and Ant­wain, were on dis­play again Fri­day night, lead­ing the Edge­wood Rams (6-1, 4-0) to an 38-8 UCBAC Ch­e­sa­peake Di­vi­sion vic­tory over host Aberdeen (3-4, 2-2). The pair, both se­niors com­bined for more than 300 yards and five touch­downs on the ground.

Deonte Banks (nine car­ries, 159 yards) ripped off a pair of sec­ond quar­ter touch­downs. One cov­ered 50 yards and other, 58 yards.

Ant­wain Banks (10 car­ries, 172 yards), the Rams quar­ter­back, opened the scor­ing with a one-yard sneak in the first quar­ter. He later added a 30-yard scor­ing run be­fore clos­ing out the night with a tremen­dous 97-yard keeper around left end.
