The Kensington Tigers entered todays game with George Washington on a sad note.  They learned last night that former teammate Tyreem Richmond had passed away suddenly. Before the game they carried his jersey out to the coin toss. The spent the rest of the game honoring him by handing the Eagles a 20-0 loss.

Jason Clark played what might have been his most complete game of the season, throwing for 99 yards on 8 of 15 passing with and two scores with one interception and running for another, gaining 91 yards on the ground.

It took a while for the Tiger offense to get in gear but eventually the defense won the field position battle for them and after an Eagle punt gave them the ball at the 44 of GW, Clark led the Tigers on a 6 play drive that ended with an 11 yard td reception by Jose Neris to go up 6-0 with 6:30 left in the first half.


Clark then stepped up on defense picking off a deflected pass and returned it to the 32. The senior then led the Tigers to their next score, handling the ball on every play. He ran 5 times for 37 yards and threw two passes for 32 yards in the drive, crossing the goal line from the one. Safir McCollogh took the two pointer in and Kensington led 14-0 at the break. “It just feels really good the way I played. My line really developed throughout the season. We played this game for Tyreem” said Clark of his efforts.


The second half pretty much went as the first with both offenses struggling to get things going until, with 6:30 left in the game, Clark found Nathan Valdez from 20 yards out to close the scoring. The td came after the Tiger defense held the Eagles on fourth down at their 27.

 

“To finish the season on four straight wins after losing the first two feels great” said Kensington head coach Steve Quigley. “It was tough coming out here after hearing about Tyreem, but our kids played hard.”  Kensington finishes the spring season at 4-2 while the Eagles close out their season at 3-1. This was the first game in which the Eagles trailed all spring.
