Campers' Twigg not half bad against Hubs

September 15, 2007|By JACK HILL III

Allegany's Jake Twigg only played in the first half against North Hagerstown on Friday night, but it was more than enough time for Twigg to stick it to the No. 5 Hubs.

Twigg ran for 103 yards and three touchdowns, and Allegany rolled to a 42-7 victory at Mike Callas Stadium.

"Allegany is a big, strong football team," North coach Danny Cunningham said. "We struggled executing early and put ourselves in a hole. Once you get in a hole against Allegany, you can't come back out of it. They basically manhandled us in the trenches."

Allegany (2-0) got on the scoreboard first with 3:23 remaining in the first quarter when Twigg broke through left tackle for a 5-yard touchdown.

Early in the second quarter, Twigg added touchdown runs of 6 and 10 yards.

With 4:20 to go in the second quarter, Campers quarterback Travis Orange fired a 69-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Babich along the left sideline to give Allegany a 28-0 halftime lead. Orange finished with 112 passing yards.


Just 1:17 into the third quarter, Orange had a 13-yard touchdown run to boost the Campers' lead to 35-0.

"The play of our offensive line was the key to our victory tonight," Allegany coach Tim Foley said. "All five of them did a good job of knocking North off the ball to open up our running game. It makes things a lot easier when you are getting off the ball."

The Hubs (0-2) scored with 1:01 left in the third on an 8-yard touchdown run by quarterback James Brunson and an extra-point kick by Jovann Carter.

Allegany got its final score with 4:15 remaining in the fourth when Justin Hymes recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.

"We are a good football team, but we have to make some adjustments," Cunningham said. "Once we make those adjustments, then we'll be ready to go. These guys have a lot of potential. We just have to dig deep and find it."
