BATH – Morse quarterback Kevin McKellar had a career day Saturday, throwing for five touchdowns, scoring another on a 58-yard keeper and returning an interception 75 yards for another TD to lead the Shipbuilders to a 52-28 victory over Old Town in an Eastern Class B football game.

“I’ve never had a day like this,” McKellar said. “But it couldn’t have happened without (my teammates). We’ve been working hard since preseason to make something like this possible.”

McKellar also could have had two more touchdowns. A 17-yard touchdown run was called back for holding. Then, with two minutes left and the ball on the Old Town 38, he broke free down the left side, but with no defenders near and nothing but the end zone in front of him, McKellar stepped out of bounds at the 8.

“I just thought it was a classy thing to do,” he said. “We didn’t need another touchdown.”

The game was a contrast in offenses, as the Coyotes (2-4), with a clear size advantage in the line and backfield, kept the ball on the ground almost exclusively, rushing for 163 yards in the first half and throwing just once until the final minute.

Morse (3-3), after seeing its running game going nowhere, took to the air, with McKellar completing three passes — all touchdowns — for 102 yards for a 20-14 halftime lead.

The game’s key juncture came in the second quarter after the Coyotes took a 14-6 lead. Old Town had scored on its initial possession, Dan Rivers going in from the 1 to cap a 15-play drive, but Morse answered with a 36-yard pass from McKellar to Keegan Drouin.

A 65-yard run by Ethan Swedberg (170 yards on 10 carries) set up a 5-yard TD run by Stephen Lilly that made it 14-6 with 10:35 left in the half. Just over two minutes later, the Shipbuilders had the lead for good.

On Morse’s first play from scrimmage after the kickoff, McKellar (8 for 11, 190 yards) hit D’Vaughn Myers in the left flat for a 54-yard touchdown. McKellar then passed to Drouin for the 2-point conversion.

Two plays later, Wade Hunt recovered a Coyote fumble at the Old Town 17, and after two apparent touchdowns were called back because of penalties, Mc-Kellar connected with Myers for a 12-yard score.

“We knew they were a tough team,” said McKellar. “They’re unique — kind of old school with their offense. We just had to get the job done on offense, and we thought we’d have some opportunities with our passing.”

Morse broke it open in the second half, scoring on four straight possessions and McKellar’s interception.

After Drouin outfought a defender to haul in a 26-yard pass on a fourth-and-1, Drouin caught an 8-yard slant for a TD.
