CAMBRIDGE — It was a happy Homecoming Game celebration for Cambridge-South Dorchester High School students and returning alumni on Friday, when the Vikings beat the Kent County Trojans, 53-0. The win brought the Vikes’ record to 3-2, while the Trojans fell to 0-5.
Both teams were trying to rebound after the losses the previous week. C-SD traveled to Kent Island to play the Buccaneers on Sept. 25, falling 48-7. The Trojans fell the same day to Queen Anne’s County, 82-0.
The Vikings’ leading scorer was once again Dario Belizaire, who continued his habit of frequent trips into the end zone. Another of the Vikes’ top scorers is kicker James Frazier, who came into the game with a perfect record of no missed field goals or extra points at home.
That streak came to an end on Friday, when a busted play meant no kick — but such was the dominance of C-SD in this game that Dario Belizaire, who always seems to be around the ball, scooped up the pigskin and ran into the end zone for a 2-point conversion.
Kent County is working through a difficult season, bringing only 16 players to Cambridge. With most of the Trojans on the field the whole game, the visitors couldn’t match skills or energy with the Vikings’ numerous players.
On Oct. 8, the Vikings will be back on the road, playing the Wicomico High School Indians (4-1) at 6 p.m. Previously undefeated WiHi lost to Kent Island on Friday, 28-8.
