The Christ the King football team continued to find the end zone with ease Saturday, cruising to a 33-8 victory over Kellenberg Memorial.
The Royals improved to 6-0 on the season as quarterback Demetrius Wilson had one of his most productive games. The standout racked up 345 yards through the air, including a pair of 80-yard passes to two different receivers.
Wilson wasn’t the only Christ the King offensive star in the victory. Tosin Oyekanmi finished with two touchdowns, while Siddiq Muhammad, Justin Terry and Anthony Lang each notched their own appearance in the end zone.
Christ the King takes to the road next for a matchup against St. John the Baptist Saturday.
Bayside 46, Grady 8: The Commodores continued to keep rolling, improving to 6-0 on the season with another lopsided win.
Bayside jumped out to a 22-0 lead after the first quarter and padded that lead with another touchdown in the second. If there was a downside to the win, it came in the form of Grady’s Torry Cortes, who racked up 165 rushing yards on 16 carries.
The Commodores kept Cortes out of the end zone, however, and wrapped up the victory with a 12-point fourth quarter. Bayside hosts McKee/Staten Island Tech Sunday, looking to maintain its perfect record.
South Shore 24, Flushing 18: Senior quarterback Jason Martin continued to make a name for himself out of the pocket on Friday night, once again sparking the Vikings (5–1) to another late-game victory. South Shore trailed 12–8 at halftime, but Martin’s arm helped turn things around in the second half.
Long Island City 36, Cardozo 14: The Bulldogs ran all over Dozo, racking up a whopping 353 yards on the ground and notching 527 yards of total offense. Dayshawn Small led the ground game with 237 yards and one touchdown, while Wilton Calderon threw for 174 yards and three touchdowns. Far Rockaway 22, KIPP 8: Seahorses quarterback Hanalka Graham was efficient under center in the victory, going 9-for 11 through the air for 139 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Curtis Stevenson added 105 yards on the ground and one touchdown of his own for Rockaway.
Truman 40, Springfield Gardens 7: The Golden Eagles dropped their first game of the season in particularly disappointing fashion as the squad was held scoreless in the final three quarters.
Springfield Gardens was held to just 87 yards of total offense as the squad completed just three passes in the lopsided loss. The Golden Eagles will look to get back on track Saturday with a road matchup at Mott Haven.
George Washington 14, Beach Channel 6: The Dolphins couldn’t slow down Washington’s run game, giving up 180 yards on the ground in the narrow defeat. Washington’s lone touchdown of the day, however, came through the air as Elvis Eusebio found Lynell Brown for his only completion of the day.
Eagle Academy III 40, Information Tech 6: Eagle Academy exploded for 400 yards of total offense in the lopsided Cup Conference victory, averaging double-digit yardage every time the ball was snapped. Gary Newman was a force to be reckoned with, throwing for 108 yards and one touchdown and rushing for another 112 yards on 11 carries.
Tyler Nation added 90 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just five carries.
