High School Football Roundup: Hubs score late, hold off Oakdale

September 14, 2012

IJAMSVILLE, Md. — Both teams struggled to move the ball most of the game on Friday night, but late in the fourth quarter Oakdale and North Hagerstown each had opportunities to make plays to win.

The Hubs got it done on offense and defense, scoring with 37 seconds left to take the lead before intercepting a pass after Oakdale moved within striking distance to hang on for a 22-19 victory.

The Bears (1-2) limited the production of North Hagerstown’s pair of talented running backs, Isaiah Keyes and Kyle Hewlett, for much of the game as both offenses struggled to get anything going. But it was Hewlett (77 yards on 13 carries), who broke through the line for a 6-yard touchdown to finally put the Hubs (2-1) ahead for good.

Oakdale had one more opportunity and moved the ball deep into North Hagerstown territory when senior quarterback Jay Molnar found David Carlisle streaking down the right sideline for a 33-yard completion to the Hubs’ 20 with 12 seconds remaining.

But North Hagerstown clinched the victory on the next play with sophomore cornerback Preston Carey picking off Molnar in the end zone.

It was the third interception of the game for Molnar, who completed 3 of 11 passes for 55 yards, but also led the Bears in rushing with 70 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
