Northeast Relentless In 40-0 Victory Over MLK @NEVikingsFB @MLK_Football

Friday, March 19
Northeast v. Martin Luther King
Charles Martin Memorial Stadium, Philadelphia, PA

M — 0 – 0 – 0 – 0 — 0
N — 26 – 8 – 6 – 0 — 40

Northeast QB Di’Andre Green would account for the first three touchdowns. A 1 and 4 yard touchdown runs would bookend a 29 yard TD pass to Tiar Young. The third touchdown was thanks in part to a -1 yard punt by MLK into a stiff wind helping push the errant boot out of bounds sharply. The next touchdown, the fourth of the first quarter, was a short 32 yard punt return after a MLK miscue left no one covering the punt as it rolled to a stop. Zaire McLaurin scooped it up and broke a few tackles from unsure MLK special teamers on whether the ball was still even live. The scamper to the right sideline and into the endzone made it 26-0 after twelve minutes for the men in black.

With under a minute to go in the first half, Zymil Lee would catch another Di’Andre Green TD pass from 13 yards out. Northeast would close out the scoring on a 5 yard TD in the third quarter (scorer unknown, sorry, might be Lee again, but couldn’t confirm).

The fourth quarter would move quickly with the running clock, as MLK tried several long passes in the second half to try and make a game of it. To no avail. The relentless Viking defense kept MLK QB Lamir Kitchens scrambling behind a unrelenting rush the entire game. The explosiveness from their first game against Frankford was easily contained by Northeast.

Martin Luther King evened their record to 1-1 after their previous victory over Frankford. Northeast would go up to 2-0 with the win including their victory over West Catholic last weekend.
