Hebron earlier this month, Oakland Mills quarterback Antoine Holmes scored the winning touchdown in the final seconds of the game, leading the Scorpions to victory of the Centennial Eagles. The game was 0-0 through the first quarter, but the pace quickened in the second when Eagles QB Sam Bussink gained 40 -rushing yards on a quarterback sneak midway through the third quarter, setting the Eagles to score the game’s first touchdown – on a Bussink quarterback sneak. The Eagles converted the two-points to take a 8-0 lead midway through the second quarter. But Scorpions quickly answered, driving down the field with a 50-yard rushing play to set the Scorpions up for a touchdown. The Scorpions converted the two-points on an Antoine Holmes quarterback sneak, tying the game 8-8 with 3:57 left in the first half.

The Scorpions took the lead in the third with a rushing touchdown from Trevin McHargh, but failed to get the extra two-points, making it 14-8 Scorpions. The Eagles quickly responded, this time with Dylan Watson at QB, who completed 4 passes and scored a touchdown on a quarterback sneak, tying the fame a 14-14 at the end of the third quarter. Capitalizing off the recovery of an Eagles fumble late in the fourth, Scorpion QB Antoine Holmes completed two passes and scored the games winning touchdown as the clock ran down to zero, sealing the victory for Oakland Mills, 20-14.
