The Wildcats overcame a 14-point deficit and surged to a 66-34 win over the defending state champions.
In the waning seconds of the first half on Friday night, the Arundel High Wildcats trailied the Old Mill Patriots, but had one last chance to score. They turned to a play that they had practiced nearly everyday—a classic hook and ladder. Wideout Tyler Young took a quick pass from Jack Gordon and then lateraled the ball to Dillon Tighe, who scampered in for the go-ahead score. The Wildcats (6-0) went into halftime up 32-27 and never looked back, smashing the defending state champions 66-34. "I think that kind of changed the momentum of the game a little bit," Arundel head coach Chuck Markiewicz said. "We've had it in our playbook for a long time, but just haven't had a chance to use it." Despite trailing for most of the first half, …

This is the one we've been waiting for. The Arundel and Old Mill football teams will battle Friday night, with each squad coming in with an unblemished record. Old Mill, of course, is the defending state champion, and handed Arundel its only regular-season lost last year. Each team has looked impressive in the first five weeks of this season. Here are some things to watch: The Wildcat Pass Attack Arundel has two very talented quarterbacks in Jack Gordon and Cooper Hibbs. They have shared time behind center this year, with coaches inserting each depending on the play call and game situation. Gordon is the more mobile of the two, and has also connected for more touchdown passes. Aaron Lewis-Cenales has emerged as a top receiving target…

The defending state champion Patriots used a series of big plays to overwhelm the Bruins 35-7.
Old Mill High football coach Chad McCormick doesn’t want to hear about who’s gone. He’s only interested in who’s here now. The current crop of Patriots made their own statement Friday night with a 35-7 win over Broadneck in the team’s first game since claiming the 2011 Class 4A state championship. “These guys are making a name for themselves now,” McCormick said. “When you don’t want to talk about who we have, that’s going to put a chip on our shoulder.” Old Mill capitalized on a series of big plays to jump all over the Bruins. The Patriots struck first with an 80-yard touchdown pass from Jalen Jones to the lanky Carl Chance. Less than two minutes later, Old Mill went up 14-0 when defensive back Marcus Hicks stripped the ball from a …
