Football Rolls Past Maryville

MARYVILLE, TN — Frostburg State used a 17-point second quarter to power its way to a 31-7 win over Maryville (Tenn.) Saturday afternoon at Lloyd L. Thornton Stadium.

It was the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

After fumbling away the opening kickoff, the Bobcats (3-3) got on track on their second possession, needing just nine plays to march 70 yards for a touchdown.

Senior Grant Burrough (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) completed the drive with a 35-yard scoring pass to junior Adam J. Snyder (Scottdale, Pa./South Moreland) to give FSU a 7-0 lead.

The Bobcats used another big play to set up its second scoring opportunity, as Burrough connected with senior Anthony Long (Purcellville, Va./Loudoun Valley) for 55 yards down to the Maryville 10.

Three running plays could only get FSU to the Fighting Scot four, and junior Jarred Boehner (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland) nailed a 21-yard field goal to give the Bobcats a 10-0 lead.

Maryville (2-6) got its lone points of the day when Colby Townsend intercepted a Burrough pass and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown to pull the Fighting Scots to within 10-7 with 6:10 left in the first half.

Frostburg State answered on its next possession, getting a spark when junior D.J. Hetrick (Keyser, W.Va./Keyser) returned the kickoff 20 yards to the Bobcat 38.

FSU turned to its ground game and moved to the Maryville 25 before Burrough connected with sophomore Jason McLaughlin (Baltimore, Md./Lansdowne) for another touchdown and a 17-7 advantage.

The Bobcats padded its lead to 24-7 just 30 seconds later when freshman Vincent Thomas (Upper Marlboro, Md./C.H. Flowers) stepped in front of Daniel Childs pass and returned the ball 40 yards for a touchdown. It was Thomas' first career interception.

FSU capped the scoring when sophomore Matt Swanke (Baltimore, Md./Lansdowne) ran in from four yards out with 10:43 left.

The Bobcat offense compiled a season-high 433 yards on the afternoon, while the defense allowed a season-low 161 yards, including just four passing yards (1-of-9).

Burrough finished 11-of-17 for 237 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, while junior Mike Kitchen (Lebanon, Pa./Lebanon) posted his first 100-yard game as a Bobcat, rushing 22 times for 108 yards.

Senior tight end Roy Olson (Lexington Park, Md./Great Mills) grabbed five passes for a game-high 107 yards.

The Bobcats return to action Saturday when they visit Westminster (Pa.) for a 1:00 pm contest.
