Timber Creek's Lowe shines in Taliaferro Classic

Posted: June 29, 2012

Timber Creek quarterback Calvin Lowe scored the winning touchdown on a draw play with less than 25 seconds remaining as the white team defeated the blue team, 41-37, on Thursday night in the Adam Taliaferro Foundation-South Jersey Football Coaches Association (SJFCA) Blue-White All-Star Classic at Rowan University.

The white team - consisting of players from Camden, Gloucester, and Salem County schools - trailed by as many as three touchdowns against the blue team - composed of players from Burlington, Atlantic, Cumberland, and Cape May Counties.

Lowe drove his team more than 90 yards on the winning drive in the final minutes, giving his team its first lead all night.

The blue team led by three and was driving for the clinching touchdown when a fumble gave the ball back to the white team with a minute and a half to go.

The blue team's 21-0 lead in the first quarter was trimmed to 27-12 by halftime.

Shaquille Lee, a Millville product, scored on two quarterback sneaks for the blue team, while Williamstown quarterback Dan Collins threw three touchdowns for the white team and successfully rushed for a two-point conversion.

The white team's Terrance Chambliss, a Woodrow Wilson graduate, had five catches for over 140 yards with a touchdown on the game while his teammate, Pennsauken's Amar Williams, returned a kickoff over 80 yards for a touchdown.

Dominic Elly, a quarterback from Cinnaminson, and Northern Burlington's Tosin Adeyemo both added rushing touchdowns for the blue team.

Collingswood's Brandon Babilonia and Gloucester Catholic's Elliot McCummings both caught touchdown passes for the white team.

On defense, Tamar Jackson of Bridgeton and Hammonton's Bobby Barbieri each had interceptions for the blue team. Daniel Ciemnieki, a Haddonfield product, intercepted a pass for the white squad.
