Bishop Walsh quarterback Terrell McGraw threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Billy Conroy with 1 minute, 3 seconds remaining in the game to give Bishop Walsh a 32-28 victory over Saint James on Saturday afternoon. Trailing 28-26, McGraw hit Conroy on a sideline pattern and the senior running back did the rest. “We ran that play twice today,” Bishop Walsh coach Geno Taylor said. “Our receiver was wide open. So I waited until the end when we really needed it. We have a good quarterback that throws the ball well and a good receiver.

The one and only extra point that was converted on Saturday was the difference in a win or loss. Ryan Abbott's kick in the second quarter gave Saint James a 7-6 lead and ended up being the difference on a beautiful Saturday afternoon as the Saints presented head coach John Root with his first victory in a 13-12 nailbiter over Clear Spring. “It's nice to get the first win, but I'm more happy for the kids,” Root said. The effort was strong, but the results leading to the final were a little sloppy, especially in the second half.

Chuck Tinninis was a little concerned how his club would react after its meltdown in the season-opener at Chambersburg last week. But the Greencastle-Antrim football coach was all smiles after the Blue Devils throttled Boiling Springs on Friday night. “We didn't make any adjustments,” said Tinninis. “I just told them to suck it up, and they did.” Greencastle's defense was a big reason for the smiles, holding the Bubblers to just 79 yards of total offense, including minus-seven yards in the second half.

Ethan Foster got the first call offensively from scrimmage for Boonsboro to begin the 2013 season. He also scored the first touchdown in thrilling fashion. Foster went up the middle for a 93-yard touchdown run and it helped push the Warriors to a 25-15 victory over Walkersville. Welcome to 2A! Walkersville took the opening drive at its own 32 and reached the Boonsboro 7 before stalling on downs. With the change of possession, it was Boonsboro's turn and Foster got the call on what head coach Clayton Anders said afterward: “It's our No. 1 nuts and bolts play.” “That score was big momentum for us,” Anders said.

Nobody said following up a 2,000-yard rushing season was going to be easy for Isiaha Smith. And for two quarters Friday night, it looked like the going would be quite rough for South Hagerstown's senior running back. That all changed in the first minute of the second half. Smith broke off a 74-yard touchdown run on the second play from scrimmage after halftime and finished with 261 yards and five touchdowns as the Rebels opened the season with a 49-26 win over Century in a game slowed and marred by penalty flags.

Blocking and tackling are usually the most important things in football. Clear Spring knows those techniques will take them places. But they add two more factors on their list - health and prayer. Coach Craig Bathgate admits he's pretty happy with the team he has taking the field for the 2013 season, but it doesn't mean he isn't looking for a safety net or two. “We have to pray to stay healthy and we have to play iron man style,” he said. Health is important when you only have 25 players on the roster.

It's been an offseason of change for the Williamsport football program. New head coach and coaching staff. New offensive schemes. New look in the locker room. Vince Ahearn knows all of that change also means new opportunities. “We're trying to build off what's been done in the past and continue to build this program,” said Ahearn, who took the head coaching position at Williamsport in February after 17 seasons at Frederick. “The kids, they're excited. Change means new opportunities and there's a lot of excitement and a lot of potential here.” All the same, Ahearn is cautious about going overboard.

If the Smithsburg football team wanted to, it could be a hit on American Bandstand. “We are dancing around and having fun,” said coach Buddy Orndorff. According to Orndorff, the Leopards have a good beat and harmony among the ranks. They have been easy to dance with. Does that mean they will be given a 8-2 record this season? “I don't know,” Orndorff said. “It's going to be one of those years where I don't know how we are going to be until we get out there and play.

Welcome to the world of Class 2A football. When Boonsboro opens its season on Friday, the Warriors will face Walkersville, a team that finished 10-2 last season with both losses coming against 2A state champion Middletown. Guess where Boonsboro goes on Sept. 20? Middletown. And, later in the year the Warriors get a dose of Poolesville. “The schedule is typical of making a move up (to 2A), very challenging,” said Clayton Anders, who begins his 29th season as the Warriors' head coach.
