Weekend wrap — Burns still standing

Carver High advanced to the third round of the Georgia Class AAA playoffs Friday, thanks in large part to Devin Burns.

The Maryland quarterback commitment rushed for two touchdowns and threw for a 2-point conversion in the Tigers' 33-7 win over Woodward Academy.

After forcing yet another Woodward punt, Carver needed only five plays before Burns scrambled up the middle and down the left sideline for a 28-yard touchdown.

Titus Till intercepted two passes and Rahsaan Moore rushed for 85 yards on 13 carries, leading Wise to a 26-0 win over C.H. Flowers in the Class 4A South region final.

Following another Flowers' punt, Wise reached the Jaguars' goal line after a 39-yard run by Rahsaan Moore. But the Jaguars' defense stiffened and the Pumas were denied another score when Smith was tackled for a 2-yard loss on fourth and goal.

• UM defensive back recruit Jeremiah Wilson powered Handley to a 30-20 win over Goochland (Va.).

Wilson put the Judges up for good in the fourth quarter on a three-yard run. Handley led 23-20 early in the fourth quarter. He added to that lead with a second fourth quarter TD and the Judges led 30-20 with six minutes remaining.

• Terps defensive back pledge Mario Rowson found the end zone once in Lake Taylor's 10-7 win over Hampton in the Virginia Eastern Region Division 5 semifinals.

In regulation, Lake Taylor scored on its second possession to open a 7-0 lead when Stanley Walls found Mario Rowson in the back right corner of the end zone on a fade route.

Tyler Smith threw for two touchdowns and two interceptions in Wilson's 49-21 loss to Allentown Central Catholic in the Pennsylvania District 11 Class 3A final.

The game turned for good in the second quarter. Wilson had moved within 14-7 on Smith's TD pass to Kowan Scott (four catches, 50 yards) with 5:15 left in the half. Smith wound up with 277 passing yards, leaving him with unofficial Wilson record for single-season passing yards (3,128, passing Lenehan's 3,057 in 2006) and career passing yards (8,033, passing Lenehan's 7,765 from 2003 to 2006).

Matt Robinson's Atholton squad dropped a 30-3 game to River Hill in the Class 3A East region final.

Ian Evans' Hammonton team advanced to the South Jersey Group III final with a 3-0 win over Seneca.
