Southern snaps losing streak, nips Northen, 7-0, on long pass

Haskiell hits Colaw at end 1st half for only score

FROSTBURG — While the second half was a long time for Southern fans to wait out a victory, it was mere seconds in comparison to the decade the Rams have had to wait to hand Northern a 7-0 loss Saturday at Miners Stadium at Mountain Ridge High School.

Reese Haskiell threw a 30-yard pass to Kevin Colaw as time expired in the first half for the only points of the afternoon, and Southern’s defense came up with multiple stops and forced a fumble late in the second half to beat its Garrett County rival for the first time since 2001.

A defense-heavy affair all day, neither team was able to sustain much of a drive. The Rams came up with a huge play when they stopped the Huskies on fourth down at the  Northern 48-yard line.

Southern got an 18-yard burst on a run by Garret Campbell  to move the ball to the 30 where the Rams used their last timeout. On the next play, Haskiell threw to an open Colaw, who caught the ball at the eight-yard line and beat the safety on a play at the goal line to give the Rams the lead. Alexander Meyer booted the extra point to give make it 7-0.

Campbell’s 18-yard run helped him finish with 128 yards on 27 carries and make him he only real offensive standout in a defensive battle.

Campbell was also a key on the Southern defense, forcing  a late fumble that was recovered by Seth Kesner that helped sealed the win.

The Rams had a total of 180 yards on the ground and the touchdown pass was the only completing for the team, giving them 210 yards of total offense. The Huskies rushed for 91 yards on 35 carries and completed 4 of 8 passes for 62 more for a total of 143.

Aaron Rodeheaver led Northern on the ground with 75 yards on 15 carries, and added one catch for 17 yards.

Derek Silbaugh recovered a fumble for the Huskies.

The win was the first in the series for the Rams since a 43-13 victory in 2001. At the time, Southern had won 7 of the 8 previous meeting between the two teams, but beginning with a 24-16 win in 2002 Northern took the next 10 match ups.

The win stretches Southern’s lead in the overall series to 34-21-2.

The Rams finish the season at 5-5. Northern has its season close at 4-6.
