LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Hill School's Matt Foltz threw for 205 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for another score Saturday, but it wasn't enough as the visiting Rams fell to archrival Lawrencville 43-32 in their Mid-Atlantic Prep League finale.

Grant Smith had nine receptions for 113 yards and one TD to increase his area-leading totals to 66 and 1,078 on the season and Trey Humes ran for a season-high 110 yards and a score for the Hill (1-4 MAPL, 1-7).

Despite playing without UMass bound star quarterback Randall West, who suffered a knee injury in last week's loss to Blair, the Big Red improved to 3-2 in the MAPL and 5-3 overall.

It was the fourth straight win by Lawrenceville in the series, the fifth-oldest rivalry in the nation. The Big Red has a 63-38-10 all-time advantage.

With West out, Lawrenceville coach Danny O'Dea went to a ground-and-pound attack led by brothers Luke Apuzzi (194 yards, one TD) and Matt Apuzzi (154 yards, four TDs).

Hill took an 18-14 lead on Foltz's 30-yard TD pass to Bryce Allen 38 seconds before halftime, but the Big Red's Luke Apuzzi darted for a 62-yard run to set up Matt Apuzzi's 14-yard TD run and Anthony Watkins returned a punt 86 yards for a TD to put Lawrenceville up 29-18 with 6:19 left in the third quarter.
