FEDERALSBURG — Cambridge-South Dorchester High School football picked up its second win of the season on March 12, with a 36-6 victory over Colonel Richardson (1-A). The Vikings’ record climbed to 2-0, while the Colonels’ fell to 1-1.
C-SD took a commanding lead in the first quarter, and never looked back. A 10-yard run by Ri’chard Stubbs got things underway, followed by a Donald Banks 2-yard TD. Kicker James Frazier missed an extra point, but added a field goal in windy conditions to bring the tally to 16-0 as the period ended.
Running back Tim Johnson got geared up for a big night with the only score of the second quarter, a touchdown making it 22-0 at the half. Then in the third quarter, he tacked on a 35-yard run, and was properly warmed up for his next trip into the end zone — a 98-yard pick-6, bringing the score to 36-0 after the extra point.
A lead of at least 35 points gets the clock running continuously in high school, so the fourth quarter ticked away quickly. It looked like the Vikes might pitch a shutout in front of the Colonels’ home crowd, but that’s when the penalties kicked in — one after another helped keep CR’s final drive alive, leading to a touchdown by Cameron Errickson in the last two minutes.
A 2-point conversion attempt resulted in an incomplete pass and the final score of 36-6.
The Vikings (1A) opened their seven-game, spring season on March 5 with a 27-6 win over Wicomico High School. Last week, CR was the victor, 48-35 over Kent County.
On March 19 at 6 p.m., though, the Vikings might have their hands full, as they travel to Kent Island to play the 2A Buccaneers, known for their winning ways through many seasons. Colonel Richardson will be at home, versus Snow Hill, game time 5 p.m.
