HAGERSTOWN -- The way coach Greg Kellick sees it, the South Hagerstown football team was taught a valuable lesson Friday night at School Stadium. "We got punched in the face and we had to fight tonight," Kellick said after the Rebels' 27-0 loss to Urbana. "I hope what we learned is that it's much better to throw the first punch. " The Rebels got hit hardest by Urbana's ground attack, surrendering 315 yards -- the majority coming from the 1-2 punch of Zach Herman and Wes Garey.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Ross Flanigan looked up at the scoreboard and saw what he'd done. To his surprise, he'd just scored the game-winner in Urbana's 29-28 victory over Martinsburg Friday night. Flanigan followed quarterback Jesse Heon's 1-yard touchdown with a go-ahead 2-point conversion run that set the stage for a chaotic final 11 minutes. A Martinsburg player had jumped offsides while the Hawks were attempting a game-tying extra point, putting the ball just outside the 1-yard line.

Wilkes can only remember running a certain off-tackle play three times - scoring a touchdown twice and slipping once. Polce said the real count was around 12. "He might be trying to recover from getting hit by 51 (Martinsburg's Scott Stump)
