October 07, 2007|By JACK HILL III

BOONSBORO - The South Carroll Cavaliers put an end to their three-game losing streak by putting an end to the Boonsboro Warriors' three-game winning streak, 28-6 on Saturday.

"South Carroll was the better team today," Boonsboro coach Clayton Anders said. "They outplayed us in every aspect. They executed well and they were well-prepared defensively. We got tired in the heat and we didn't execute. They didn't get tired."

Gregory Tellish gained 155 yards on 15 carries for the Cavaliers (2-3) - an average of 10.3 per carry.

"Our offensive line played tremendous," South Carroll coach Greg Mihalko said. "We established the run and we never let up. Gregory is a physical back and he is hard to tackle."

"In their power-running game, they were able to eat the clock," Anders said. "They were getting a lot of first downs and they were able to keep the ball."


South Carroll had 16 first downs compared to seven for Boonsboro (3-2).

The Cavaliers got on the scoreboard 1:24 in when Tellish broke loose for a 19-yard touchdown run along the right sideline.

Boonsboro reduced the deficit to 7-6 with 5:06 remaining in the second quarter on Ryan McLean's 9-yard run to the right side.

Ryan Weaver fired a 21-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Louder along the left sideline with 11 seconds left in the first half to give South Carroll a 14-6 halftime lead.

After a scoreless third quarter, Tellish's 64-yard touchdown run to the right 34 seconds into the fourth quarter increased South Carroll's lead to 21-6.

The Cavaliers scored for the final time with 7:25 left when Adam Slatniske charged through the middle for a 25-yard TD run.

"Our run defense was the key to our victory today," Mihalko said. "We didn't give up a lot of yards on the ground. We put them in a lot of third-and-long situations."

The Cavaliers gained 369 yards of total offense and held the Warriors to 130 yards.
