Kensington QB Jason Clark brings his team to the line

With a wind gusting on what was the coldest football gameday of the 2020-21 season, it wasn’t looking like we’d see much of a passing game.  Kensington quarterback Jason Clark proved me wrong. The outgoing senior threw two touchdown passes and added two more on the ground to lead the Tigers to a 50-12 win over upstart Vaux Big Picture.

“We were able to get it rolling early this week and that’s important” said Kensington head coach Steve Quigley. It was a VERY quick start. On the first possession of the game the Tigers drove 67 yards on eight plays, the last two a 22 yard run to the 21 and a 21 yard td run by running back Safir McCollogh. They didn’t get the two point play,


It wasn’t much longer that the Tigers found the endzone again. Vaux gave up a fourth down sack putting the ball at their 13. It took one play. Clark found Jose Morales and Tabyu Garner plowed in for the two point conversion making it a 14-0 Tiger lead with 5:39 left in the first.


It looked like Kensington was going to keep piling on the points as after recovering an onside kick attempt the Tigers got to the Cougar 5 with a 25 yard run from Jason Slevenski but Clark had the ball ripped away and Vaux recovered at their three.  It was a short reprieve. A bad snap on fourth down gave the Tigers the ball at the Vaux 10. Clark ran to the two and Garner crossed the goal line with a 2 yard run from Garner to make it a 20-0 game with 11:44 left in the first half.


Then something happened. Vaux made it a game. Shyear Flet took the kickoff 80 yards to the house.

With the score 20-6, Clark never panicked. He led the Tigers on a 55 yard drive then capped it with a 3 yard td pass to Isaiah Chambers to make it a 26-6 game with 5:47 left in the half.  With the wind at his back, Vaux quarterback Asim Wilson found Kevin Cooper for a 31 yard gain to the Kensington 40. A few plays and Vaux penalties later Wilson launched a bomb to Bryheim Johnson who made the grab and ran to the endzone bringing the score to 26-12 at the half. (wrong name in the tweet)


Our quarterback is a really special athlete. We really are just trying to get the basics down as a new team. He made a few good throws and broke for some nice runs today” said Vaux head coach Rob Marsden.

The second half was a different story for Vaux. Wilson started off the third with an interception. The Tigers went 60 yards and scored on a 2 yard run by Clark. On the next series, Wilson was again picked off. Credit to Tiger defender, Chambers, for keeping track of a bouncing ball.

Kensington scored on the ensuing drive with Clark’s fourth td and added another to finish off the scoring.
