Taronn “Scooter” Selby scored a total of five touchdowns to lead the visiting St. Georges Hawks to a resounding 62-25 victory over Brandywine Saturday morning. Selby ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns, and caught a 34-yard TD pass from quarterback Zach Wright. In addition, he opened the scoring with a 45-yard interception return in the first quarter, and he returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Hawks' fullback Tymiere Griffin added two rushing touchdowns, and Selby's twin brother Keyjaun scored on a 90-yard kickoff return in the second quarter. Keyjaun also provided a number of crunching blocks for his backfield teammates during the contest.
The game turned into a scoring-fest from the first quarter on, as the team combined for 29 points in the first period, and a total of 53 points through the first half. After T. Selby scored on the interception, Brandywine's young offense found some rhythm and Richard Hill scored on a 20-yard pass from Bulldog QB Sayvon Willis. Selby and Griffin scored to give the Hawks a 22-7 lead after on quarter.
In the second period, the offenses continued to operate at full tilt, as Tyrezz Walker scored on a nifty 25-yard yard through the Hawk defense. After Griffin scored his second rushing touchdown, Chris Schiavi nailed a 34-yard field goal to cut into the St. Georges lead. Lightning would strike on the ensuing kickoff, as Keyjaun Selby ran back the kickoff 90 yards for a fast six points for the Hawks, who lead 36-17 at the half.
Brandywine would score again on a nice drive to start the third quarter, on a four-yard run by Stefon Johnson, but after that, it was all St. Georges, and all Taronn Selby, as he would score two rushing touchdowns and a fifth and final score on an interception return.
Angelo Ortiz would score the final touchdown in the fourth quarter to begin the running clock.
The Bulldogs record dropped to 4-4 on the season. They will play Howard High School of Technology Thursday night at Baynard Stadium at 7 p.m.
The 7-1 Hawks will host Division-2 rival Caravel this Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m.
