Weekend wrap – Huge games for Hendy, Morton
Everything seemed to go Jeremiah Hendy's way on Saturday.
The Maryland cornerback commitment scored three touchdowns and picked off three passes in Bowie's 35-6 win over Laurel.
Bowie forced Laurel to punt on its ensuing possession and Hendy returned the ball 80 yards for a touchdown. And on the Spartans' next drive, Hendy caught his second interception of the afternoon and nearly returned it for a score.
Hendy, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound senior, finished with three receptions for 65 yards in the Bulldogs' win.
Returning to the lineup after missing last season because of a serious knee injury, running back Delonte Morton rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 36-yard score midway through the fourth quarter as the Stags escaped with a 45-31 victory over Loyola Blakefield.
Tyler Cierski led the way on the ground for Mill Creek with 77 yards on 15 carries.
• Terps athlete target Darius Jennings was instrumental in Gilman's stunning 28-7 upset of Good Counsel in the I-95 Kickoff Classic.
Jennings, a first-team All-Metro selection who has narrowed his college choice to 10 major programs, including Penn State, Ohio State, UCLA and Maryland, led the way, rushing for 142 yards on 25 carries, running for one touchdown and throwing for another.
