BENNETT PUTS THE ICING ON ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

The Bennett football team sure did its part to celebrate the school's 75th anniversary.

Jesse Miller caught an 18-yard pass from Terrence Wayne in double overtime to give the Tigers their first victory in three seasons, 14-6 over Kensington.

The victory was also Bennett's first against Kensington in 14 seasons and fit in just fine with weeklong activities.

"It couldn't have happened at better time," said second-year coach Bob Kurtz. "We had a lot of alumni on hand. It was like we won the Super Bowl."

Although Bennett (1-1) turned the ball over to open the overtime, the Tiger defense stopped both Kensington possessions. With the Knights trying to tie the game on its second OT chance, Jahmil Campbell recorded a third-down sack. On fourth down, Bennett forced the ball carrier out of bounds.

Bennett finished 0-9 last season and was outscored, 309-54. In 1998, they were credited with a win, but it was by forfeit. In 1997, they were 1-8 with a win over Grover Cleveland, 22-0.

Seneca 24, Lafayette 0: Kevin Hudson had two of his team's six interceptions while Darmel Whitfield passed for 242 yards and two TDs.

Burgard 30, Hutch-Tech 28: Lamar Hampton had 270 yards on 30 carries and scored three times for Bulldogs. Tech's Anthony Johnson had 208 yards on 26 tries.
