Chesapeake High School

Conference: 1-2

Overall: 3-4

Last week’s results: Chesapeake 23, Loch Raven 0

Top players of the week:

Junior Ameico Smith (No. 2) led the team offensive and defensively. On offense, Smith scored two total touchdowns, including one on the ground and one through the air. As our free safety on defense, he made timely pass breakups and tackles that established our defensive dominance.

Junior Marcel Battle (No. 7) set the tone on both sides of the ball. Battle was playing sideline to sideline on defense and was leading the running game, scoring one touchdown on the ground.

Senior Brandon Nelson (No. 58) anchored the defense by setting the edge and living in the opposing team’s back field.

Senior Patrick Byers (No. 1) made play after play throughout the game. On defense, Byers made a timely interception, and on offense, he had over 150 yards from scrimmage and scored one receiving touchdown.

Coach Chris Acab’s comments:

I was very proud of how are guys responded after a tough defeat our previous week. We played our most complete game this season; we executed in all 3 phases: special teams, offense, and defense. I was very pleased with how our defense was flying to the ball, making gang tackle after gang tackle. Offensively, we took what they gave us and executed at a high level.

We’re finishing up our regular season with a tough Perry Hall team this upcoming Saturday. We’re looking forward to the opportunity.

Schedule: Chesapeake hosts Perry Hall at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Kenwood High School

Conference: 1-0

Overall: 4-4

Last week’s results: Milford Mill 42, Kenwood 16

Top players of the week:

Senior Justice Brown — One touchdown reception.

Junior Khyree Myles — One touchdown pass and one 2-point conversion.

Senior Troy Dukes — 140 rushing yards, one touchdown and one 2-point conversion. Dukes now has 1,114 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns this season.

Coach Derrick Krumholtz’s comments:

Despite the final score, this game was hard fought and was still close into the fourth quarter. Senior offensive Linemen Kalil Bailey and Jamal Ashley were standout players, as we were able to consistently run the ball against a very tough, very talented Milford Mill defense.

Schedule: Kenwood at Towson at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Eastern Technical High School

Conference: 0-3

Overall: 0-8

Last week’s results: Patapsco 12, Eastern Tech 0

Top players of the week:

Freshman quarterback Gavin Weinhold made his first career start at the varsity level and completed five of six passes for 51 yards.

Senior running back DJ McCarthy led the rushing charge with 67 yards on 10 carries.

Senior defensive end Haniel Lopez had two sacks, and seniors Ahmari Jones and Sammy Diab each had one sack.

Coach Bill Brinegar’s comments:

Eastern Tech ran 14 plays and held the ball for over nine minutes on the first drive of the game, but two costly penalties stalled the drive, and we turned it over on downs. For all three first-half drives, we moved into Patapsco territory but came up empty, including on fourth and goal from inside the Patapsco 10-yard line. In the second half, we forced three-and-outs on the first two drives and started inside the Patapsco 35-yard line but were unable to move the football or come up with any points.


Eastern Tech hosts New Town at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, at the Community College of Baltimore County in Essex.
