Weekend wrap – Riddle unstoppable in win

The first game of Joe Riddle's senior season was a memorable one.

The Maryland-bound athlete powered Linganore to a big win over South Carroll on Friday night.

The Lancers' senior tailback, who is bound for the University of Maryland next year, flashed his Division I speed and showed his hometown fans why the Terrapins went after him. Riddle ran for 232 yards and a pair of touchdowns as Linganore pulled away from the Cavaliers 28-6, snapping SC's 14-game regular-season winning streak.

• Terps commitments Perry Hills and Anthony Nixon helped Pittsburgh Central Catholic to a 20-17 win over Archbishop Wood.

The game appeared to be swinging towards Central Catholic's favor when Hills (6-of-13, 122 yards) hooked up with fellow Maryland recruit Anthony Nixon (4 rec., 75 yards) on a 33-yard touchdown pass with 2:41 left in the third quarter, capping a 13-play, 76-yard, 6:10-drive. Nixon caught three of his four passes on that drive.

• UM quarterback recruit Caleb Rowe had a monster game in Blue Ridge's 57-0 win over Eastside (S.C.).

Rowe finished the game with six touchdown passes, three to Bryton Griffin and the other three to younger brother Brennon.

• Terps linebacker pledge Shawn Petty directed Eleanor Roosevelt to a 35-6 win over Norview High in Norfolk, Va.

Quarterback Shawn Petty completed 6 of 14 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored touchdowns on runs of 16 and 4 yards. Petty tossed a 74-yard scoring pass to Tyrone Temoney, who had three catches for 153 yards and two touchdowns.

Amba Etta-Tawo was McEachern's leading receiver in the Indians' 20-13 win over Lowndes (Ga.).

Etta-Tawo caught six passes for 82 yards.

• Maryland cornerback recruit Sean Davis caught five passes for 116 yards, rushed three times for 63 yards, scored four touchdowns and a 2-point conversion in Maret's 48-0 win over Model (D.C.).

• UM linebacker commitment Brock Dean found the end zone once in Bishop McDevitt's 28-7 loss to Gateway (Pa.).

Bishop McDevitt tied it with 10 minutes left in the half on Brock Dean's 1-yard run.
