Weekend wrap – Terps recruit Ross runs wild

The first game of Brandon Ross' senior season was a memorable one.

The Maryland-bound running back powered the Charter School of Wilmington (Del.) to a 46-20 win over St. Georges.

Brandon Ross rushed for 181 yards with two touchdowns and caught one touchdown pass for Charter.

Ross' receiving touchdown was on a 10-yard pass, while his rushing scores came from 69 and 82 yards out.

• DeMatha rallied for a 35-32 win over Friendship Collegiate, but Maryland-bound athlete Delonte Morton was a casualty for the Stags.

The Stags took a 20-12 lead on Michael Branthover's 49-yard field goal at the end of the first half, but they lost starting running back Delonte Morton to what DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor called a severe ankle sprain, which forced him from the field for X-rays.

• Terps wide receiver commitment Marcus Leak was knocked out of Parkwood (N.C.) High's 42-21 loss to Mount Airy.

Leak broke a botched punt snap for a big first down early to put Parkwood on the way to its first score and snagged a near impossible pass on the sideline for a first down later. But with Parkwood driving late in the second quarter, Leak went down with an apparent ankle injury not to return.

• UM tight end recruit Ryan Malleck found the end zone once in Point Boro (N.J.) High's 21-11 loss to Manasquan.

Point Boro followed with a 36-yard drive as Dunbar threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to tight end Ryan Malleck to make it 8-0.

• Maryland cornerback commitment Jeremiah Hendy helped Bowie to a 21-7 win over DuVal.

Jordan Maslanik connected with wide receiver Jeremiah Hendy for 13 yards, and on the next play he hit James Johnson on a deep post pattern for a 67-yard touchdown pass. Another Holmes extra point gave the visitors a 14-7 lead.
