With only one game in the regular season remaining, the playoff chase is still tight and anything can happen at this point.
Douglass defeats Surrattsville
Douglass won a statement game against Surrattsville Saturday, defeating the Yellow Jackets, 44-6. Senior Devonte Williams led his team in rushing with 93 yards on the ground, and sophomore running back Aaron Johnson rushed for three touchdowns. Douglass was stout defensively with the performances of D’Sean Cummings and Malcom McCoy. Cummings led the Eagles in tackles and McCoy accounted for four tackles and a sack.
Raiders forge passed High Point
Eleanor Roosevelt had no trouble against High Point knocking off the Eagles, 51-8. Coming off of an impressive shutout against DuVal, the Raiders did what they do best in keeping the ball on the ground. Sophomore running back Mike Mofor led the charge with 150 yards rushing on only nine carries and found the end zone twice. Mofor is on a tear this season so far with more than 800 yards rushing and averaging almost 97 yards a game. Roosevelt will need him to keep playing this way if the Raiders want to have any chance of defeating the Suitland Rams this Saturday.
Wise maintains status quo — undefeated
Wise remains undefeated with another shutout against perennial powerhouse Flowers, 22-0. Head coach DeLawn Parrish has gotten his team to play at a high level nearing the end of the season, and they seem to be the school to beat moving forward. It was business as usual for running back Chase Powell accounting for 123 yards of total offense and one touchdown receiving. Senior linebacker D’Angelo Niler was a pivotal player in this game leading the Pumas with 14 tackles, two sacks and an interception.
Victor leads Northwestern to victory
Northwestern now finds itself with a 6-3 record, including a 27-point win over Parkdale. Darius Victor, possibly the best running back in the county, has amassed more than 240 yards and rushed for three touchdowns in the Wildcats’ colossal win. Northwestern will face Bowie on the road this Saturday.
Bowie State rebounds against Lincoln University
Bowie State bounced back after a two-game slide against Lincoln University wining handily, 45-9. Junior running back and Landover native Corwin Acker led the Bulldogs in rushing with 74 yards and a touchdown. This win puts Bowie State at 5-4, and the Bulldogs will face Elizabeth City State this Saturday to see who will clinch the division and move onto the postseason.
