Brashear 21, Oliver 20, F/2 OT
In the closest game in the City League this year, Oliver fell that short of winning their first game since beating Peabody on Oct. 1. Brashear’s Adam Lynch was sure to prevent that from happening as the Bulls are looking to make yet another post season run. He completed 8 of 20 passes for 106 yards with a 24-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Gray and ran for a 10-yard score in the second overtime. Jawanza Bryant added an 8-yard scoring run.
Oliver’s Shakeem Cox and Trevon Kendrick exchanged touchdowns, both receiving and throwing one to each other. A missed two-point conversion on the 10-yard pass that Cox threw in the second overtime was the difference in the game.
Schenley 16, Allderdice 0
Schenley defeated Allderdice 16-0 at Cupples Stadium last Thursday. “We got beat up,” said Allderdice coach Jerry Haslett. “We had a lot of kids injured but that was no excuse. They dominated us. The kids know that we can’t play like that if we want to compete.”
The loss dropped Allderdice from second to third, allowing Brashear to leapfrog over them in the standings. Schenley is on a three-game winning streak.
Perry 39, Wheeling Central Catholic 28
Perry, who maintains a comfortable lead in the city, got a non-conference win against Wheeling Central Catholic, 39-28. Greg McGhee passed for three touchdowns and also ran for a couple for the Commodores. Chinelo Oparanozie led all rushers for Perry with 116 yards. He also scored on a 34-yard run.
Carrick 11, Langley 8
A 20-yard field goal by Carrick’s Robert Fields with under a minute sent Langley to a fourth-place tie with Schenley, setting up an interesting fight in the upcoming stretch run. Carrick also scored on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Henry Myers to Zach Roche.
Stephon Faye scored on a 5-yard run for Langley.
