WINTHROP/MONMOUTH 30, OLD ORCHARD BEACH 13: A career game from junior Alec Brown helped the Ramblers earn a come-from-behind victory over the Seagulls in a Campbell Conference Class D game played at Joe Regina Field.

Brown had 28 carries for 228 yards, three touchdowns and a two-point conversion rush for Winthrop/Monmouth (4-2), who trailed 13-6 early in the third quarter.

“Our line did very well against them and he was just belly and trap up the middle,” Ramblers coach Dave St. Hilaire said. “He was carrying guys and he was running hard.”

The Ramblers took a 6-0 lead into the half after a 1-yard touchdown run from Brown in the first quarter, but Old Orchard Beach (2-5) responded with short touchdown runs from Dylan Creswell and Erik Hogan to take the lead early in the second half.

Winthrop/Monmouth took the lead for good before the of the quarter, though. The Ramblers got touchdown runs of 13 and 9 yards from Brown before Antonio Meucci scored on a 3-yard run on the final play of the third quarter. Nate Scott ran in a pair of two-point conversions.
