VIDEO: St. Georges soars to victory
Taronn Selby led St. Georges (7-1) with four touchdowns to cruise to a 62-25 victory against Flight B conference competitor Brandywine.
T. Selby scored the first touchdown of the game, when he intercepted Sayvon Willis' pass. The two point conversion was good, and the Hawks took the early 8-0 lead.
The Bulldogs (4-4) answered with a 23 yard touchdown, when Willis connected with Richard Hill in the end zone with 6:41 left in the opening quarter.
Both teams were fired up early on. After Brandywine's whole football team, on and off the field, dropped down to do pushups showing the Hawks' offense they were ready for the stop, quarterback Zachary Wright completed a 33 yard touchdown pass to Keyjuan Selby to extend the lead 14-7.
Tymiere Griffin scored one more touchdown for the Hawks before closing out the first quarter with a 22-7 edge.
The Bulldogs opened the second quarter with a Tyrezz Walker 25 yard touchdown run to cut the lead, but 40 seconds later, Griffin scored his second touchdown of the game to open the gap 30-14.
St. George's K.Selby scored on a 90 yard kickoff return, and the Hawks took the 36-17 lead at the half.
Brandywine opened the third quarter the same way as the second, Walker's 65 yard carry set up a 5 yard rushing touchdown from Stefon Johnson. The two point was good and with 10:24 left in the third, the Bulldogs trailed 36-25.
That would be the end of scoring for Brandywine, and St. Georges' T. Selby scored three more touchdowns to secure the victory. Freshman Angelo Ortiz scored the final touchdown for the Hawks with a little more than six minutes left to play.
St. Georges hosts Caravel next Saturday on Senior Day, while Brandywine takes on a Howard (5-3) at Baynard Stadium on Thursday for a Halloween conference match up.
