The Bengals have championship aspirations as they are off to a hot start, opening the season 3-0, with an absurd combined score of 112-19. Blake played against opponents Walt Whitman High School, John F. Kennedy High School, and Albert Einstein High School.
The Bengals secured their first win against Whitman two weeks ago, winning 42-0. In the second game of the season, Blake faced off against Kennedy High School, coming out with a score of 36-0. In the game last night, Blake won 34-19, their toughest game of the season so far.
Blake was so dominant that Kennedy ended up conceding at halftime. Winning with that score against anyone will be a big morale boost for the team. Blake is led by Junior Quarterback Kirby Matson, and Junior running back Jeremiah Seaton, who have scored in all three games. Blake’s defense has also only allowed 19 points in three games, which very may well be the team’s strongest side of the ball.
These three wins bode well for the rest of the Bengals’ season, with a shutdown defense and the offense clicking on all cylinders. If they can maintain this momentum and chemistry, the season looks very promising. Even after losing in the Quarterfinals to Dundalk High School last season and suffering the loss of some key starters to graduation, Blake looks to make another deep run in the playoffs this fall.
The next game for the Bengals is next Friday at and against rival Sherwood High school. The last time these two teams faced, Blake lost on a heartbreaking hail mary, ending 27-21. Sherwood always seems to have Blake’s number in playoff and regular season games, so Blake will try to steal one on the road. With the momentum of the last three weeks, Blake looks to keep it rolling as they try to compete for a championship.
