Woodlawn holds off City for second straight victory; Johns throws 3 TD passes (VIDEO HERE!!)
After two disappointing showings to start its season, Woodlawn High's football team appears to have righted its ship.
The Warriors posted a 34-18 victory over City College in a non-league contest at Alumni Field in Baltimore City. Senior quarterback Damontaa Johns threw for three touchdowns and Jawan Rabb added an 11-yard touchdown for Woodlawn.
The Baltimore County school scored the first 34 points, evening its record at 2-2. The Warriors lost to perennial Baltimore County powerhouses Franklin (26-8) and Milford Mill Academy (48-8) to start its season.
After spoiling New Town's fast start last Saturday in Owings Mills, Woodlawn built a 20-0 halftime lead Saturday against City (1-3). Johns tossed scoring passes to seniors Armani Wilson (29 and 19 yards) and Tahj Roberts (10).
Rabb, a transfer from Milford Mill, made it 26-0 late in the third with his 11-yard score. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Jarell Gainer found senior tight end Cameron Wheeler for a 15-yard score.
City, which was shutout at Dunbar last week, got three scoring throws from senior Michael Bond to fellow senior Thomas Foster, including a 54-yarder. The Knights play at undefeated Edmondson Friday in Baltimore City Division I action.
Woodlawn hosts Loch Raven in the Baltimore County Division III opener for both Friday evening at Kevin Lyles Stadium.
