The Patriots' defense kept Connor Cox and his talented receiver corps at bay.
Old Mill High's football team continued on in the playoff's Friday night, securing a redemptive 21-7 win over South River to advance to the Class 4A Regional Final. Old Mill will now host Meade, an upset winner over Arundel, for a shot at the regional title. After defeating the same Old Mill side in a shootout the previous week, the renowned South River passing game—led by senior quarterback Connor Cox and senior wide receiver Eric Young—was contained by a brutal Patriot secondary, which held the Seahawks to only three receptions in the first half. Patriots running back Shawn Brown made use of his 39 carries, as he gained a massive 225 yards and 2 scores on the ground. Old Mill realized early that the running game was working as they …

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, …
