Southfield 22 King 19

28 Oct

In a game where two teams meet in the opening week of the season, no one expects one team to beat another team twice in one season.  But that was not the case for this pre-district contest between Southfield and King.  This game was nail biter and no team in this game deserved to lose.  The first quarter breezed by with both teams unable to put points on the board, but in the opening minutes of the 2nd quarter, Southfield qb Tre Walton scored on a td qb sneak to put the Blue Jays up 7-0.  Later in the 2nd, Gerald Gates of Southfield scampered up the middle for a 30 yard td to put the Jays up 14-0.  But the Crusaders would score on a Mycial Allen td to go into the lockers with a deficit of only seven.  King would come out hot in the 2nd half.  Avonte Maddox cut the Blue Jay lead to only one on a td run.  Later in the 3rd, Northern Illinois recruit Mycial Allen hauled in a 77 yard td pass from Devaun Williams to give King the lead.  That would be all the scoring for King the rest of the way.  The Crusader defense did not allow a touchdown for the most of the 2nd half.  But Southfield scored when they had to, on their last possession, Gerald Gates scored and Jeff Madison got the two to put Southfield on top by 3.  King would drive all the way inside the Blue Jay 10, but a 4th down desperation pass from Devaun Williams would fall incomplete giving Southfield the win.  King’s remarkable season finishes at 6-4, but not without a Detroit Public School League City Championship.  The Blue Jays now move onto the district Championship to face Oak Park, winners of the OAA White Division.  Who defeated Southfield 24-18 in week four of the season.
