Antonio Mouzon ran for two touchdowns, and Justin Holliday blocked three punts and two extra-point tries Friday night as Baumholder debuted as a Division II school with a 21-12 home victory against Mannheim.

The Bucs, the 2004 European Division III runners-up who were moved up to Division II before the season to give that division 10 schools, followed coach Carter Hollenbeck’s advice in passing their first test in their new league.

“I told our team that whether we played right or wrong,” Hollenbeck said, “we’re going to hit them as hard as we can.”

Sophomore T.J. Whatley scored Baumholder’s first Division II TD, scampering in from 16 yards out to cap a four-play, 44-yard drive in the first quarter. Mouzon broke his runs in the second and fourth, both set up by punt blocks by Holliday.

Rickey Gardner ran 27 and 24 yards for Mannheim’s TDs, both in the fourth quarter.

Mike Denson led Baumholder with 10 tackles.

In Division II games played Saturday:

ISB 20, Bitburg 0At Bitburg, International School of Brussels’ returning All-Europe running back Philip Lipman ran 19 times for 97 yards and a touchdown, made 10 tackles and sacked the quarterback for the defending Division II-North champions.

ISB was nursing a 6-0 lead, built on Sebastian Steege’s 9-yard run in the first quarter, when Lipman crashed over from 4 yards out with 11:47 left in the game. His two-point conversion run made it 14-0, and Phillip Feldman broke a 52-yard TD run with 7:56 left to ice the game.

Bitburg got 16 carries for 99 yards from Simon Shaw, but lost three fumbles inside the ISB 20-yard line.

Patrick Hardy (one sack) and Colin Huffaker led Bitburg’s defense with 11 tackles each. Shaw and Corey Legister each had nine tackles, and Josh Collett intercepted a Rafael Steege pass.

Patch 39, Vilseck 0At Stuttgart, junior Daniel Kennedy ran 24 and 57 yards for touchdowns and hauled in a 41-yard TD pass as Patch shut out Vilseck.

Kennedy carried only seven times but still accumulated 128 yards for the Panthers.

Patch quarterback J.D. Lindsay, a returning All-Europe selection, was 5-for-10 for 138 yards and two touchdowns.

Lindsay stood out on defense, too, registering 10 tackles and returning an interception 61 yards. Teammate Will Coggins also intercepted a pass, and Mike Beuckens stripped a Vilseck ballcarrier and took the ball 24 yards for a touchdown.

Naples 33, Aviano 11At Aviano, Austin Webb keyed a Naples ground game that produced 337 yards.

Webb rushed 17 times for 140 yards while teammate Jason McKechnie, who scored on two short TD runs, rushed 21 times for 128 yards.

After Aviano took a 3-0 lead in the first quarter on Ricky Rodriguez’s 27-yard field goal, Naples struck for four straight touchdowns. Webb got the first, bursting 32 yards, and McKenchie sandwiched his 3- and 6-yard scoring runs around an 8-yard TD pass from Tyler Terronez to Danillo Stewart.

Gary Vogt ran 3 yards and ran in the two-point conversion to close out Aviano’s scoring; Brandon Walker ran 3 yards for the final Naples TD.
