Weekend wrap – Petty's season ends

What proved to be the last game of Shawn Petty's high school career was a forgettable one.

The Terps linebacker commitment and Eleanor Roosevelt quarterback rushed for 73 yards on 14 carries, but went just 3-for-11 for 28 yards and two interceptions in the Raiders' 13-8 loss to C.H. Flowers in a Class 4A South Region semifinal.

“It’s very frustrating,” said Petty, who has verbally committed to play college football at the University of Maryland. “We’ve been working hard for this season trying to get the state championship. We came out here and didn’t play too well. Flowers is a great team. They got the win.”

• Maryland-bound quarterback Perry Hills threw a 23-yard touchdown pass in leading Pittsburgh Central Catholic to a 31-14 win over Mt. Lebanon in the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League Class AAAA quarterfinals.

• The high school career of Malcolm Culmer ended Friday with Willingboro's 56-8 loss to Haddonfield in a South Jersey Group 2 quarterfinal.

On offense, Willingboro (4-5) could only produce 64 first-half yards, 32 of which came on Malcolm Culmer's touchdown pass to fellow senior Isaac Williams late in the second quarter. Culmer, who is committed to Maryland to play receiver, split snaps at quarterback with junior running back Tyrik Clouden.

• UM wide receiver commitment Amba Etta-Tawo helped McEachern to a 56-12 win over Benedictine in the first round of the Georgia Class AAAAA playoffs.

After a Cadet punt attempt was foiled by a high snap, McEachern set up its next scoring drive at the Benedictine 41. It only took four plays as [Trent] Thompson hit Amba Etta-Tawo on a 26-yard pass play. Kell Parham finished the drive with a 7-yard score to make it 14-0.

Basketball recruiting

• NBE Basketball Report ranked Terps center pledge Shaquille Cleare the No. 7 impact recruit in the ACC.

Cleare should fill a huge void in the middle for Maryland and become the top low post scoring option very quickly.

• Maryland-bound small forward Jake Layman was at Comcast Center on Sunday night to see the Terps' 71-62 win over UNC-Wilmington. Combo guard signee Seth Allen was planning to be there. Gonzaga (D.C.) junior and Terps point guard target Nate Britt was also in attendance.
