WESTMINSTER, Md. – Johns Hopkins, ranked 12th in the latest d3football.com poll, jumped out to a 28-0 first-quarter lead en route to a 52-21 victory over McDaniel in Centennial Conference (CC) football action on Saturday.

Seth McFall (Dover, Del./Caesar Rodney) went 21-for-35 for 287 yards and three touchdown passes to lead the Green Terror (2-8, 2-7 CC), including 11 of those completions to Mike Oliveto (Robesonia, Pa./Conrad Weiser). In the most receptions by a McDaniel player since 2009, Oliveto amassed a career-high 155 yards.

Braden Anderson led a balanced attack for the Blue Jays (10-0, 9-0 CC) with 142 yards passing on 17 of 25. Daniel Wodicka had six receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown.

Using eight Robbie Matey passes before using his feet for the final 12 yards, Johns Hopkins moved 65 yards on 10 plays to take a 7-0 lead 5:13 into the game.

A quick five-play march needed to cover just 35 yards for a 14-0 lead on Wodicka's touchdown catch with 7:18 showing.

Jack Toner returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown just over a minute later.

A 12-yard Anderson-to-Jared Beekman made it 28-0 with 2:45 to play in the quarter.

A Jesse Poore interception once again gave the Blue Jays a short field early in the second quarter. Five plays and 31 yards later, Matt Berry scored from two yards out for a 35-0 lead.

McFall responded and hit Nick O'Melia (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) on the fourth play of the ensuing possession for a 48-yard scoring strike to make it 35-7 with 9:01 showing.

An Anderson one-yard stretched the advantage to 42-9 midway through the second quarter and Richie Carbone added a 25-yard field goal to make it a 45-7 game after three quarters.

McFall hit Oliveto but a 20-yard gain on second-and-7 from the Hopkins 21 but Marcus Spearman knocked the ball loose at the one-yard line as the receiver was stretching for the pylon. Keith Woodrow (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) recovered the ball for the touchdown.

The Blue Jays responded with an 81-yard scoring drive to make it a 52-14 game with 8:03, making it the first time in the 92 meetings between the long-time rivals that either team broke 50 points.

A Woodrow 19-yard touchdown catch with 2:15 showing made it the highest scoring game in the rivalry.

Joe Rollins (Temple Hills, Md./Surrattsville) finished his career with 28 yards rushing, giving him 1,374 for the season and 4,418 for this career.

Mike Cousar (Easton, Pa./Easton Area) finished his career, leading three defenders in double-digit tackles with 10.

McDaniel opens the 2014 season at Catholic on Sept. 6.
