High School Football: Indians win opener; Clippers, Rams struggle

Easton 48, Bennett 20

 Easton carried a 41-point into the final quarter and beat the Bennett Clippers on Friday night in Easton.

Easton senior quarterback Jaelon Moaney ran for two touchdowns and threw for two others, and L.J. Flournoy ran for three scores as the Warriors piled up 514 yards in offense on the way to a 48-20 season-opening victory at Warrior Stadium.

Though Bennett got Jacob Larmore’s 204 passing yards and another 76 from the running game, it committed four turnovers — three leading to 21 Easton points. Despite a brief running clock, the Clippers pushed two more scores across in the fourth quarter, as Larmore hit Malik Shockley for a 73-yard score and Michael Jean-Charles on a 7-yard touchdown.

The Clippers now sport a 0-1 record. They take the field next when they host Nandua for a non-league challenge on Friday.

Bennett will meet a Warriors team coming off a 49-48 non-league win over Franklin, Va.. The Warriors record now stands at 2-0.

 Queen Anne’s 35, Parkside 0

 Queen Anne’s Lions team shut out Parkside’s Rams 35-0 at Wicomico County Stadium.

The Lions scored on their opening drive when fullback Tommy Jones scored.

The Rams’ offensive line struggled against the Lions’ defense, making the game difficult for running backs Dabryant Crockett or Trajon Branch.

Coming up next, the Rams encounter the North Caroline Bulldogs in a Bayside 3A/2A contest, on Friday. Parkside will attempt to upgrade on its 0-1 season record. The Bulldogs go into the contest with a 0-1 record after their 27-14 league loss to Kent Island.

 Wi-Hi 52, Washington 10

 The Indians had a 50-yard opening return that immediately put Washington in a hole Friday night at County Stadium.

The opening play was a squib kick to Matt Robinson, who ran in the score.

Washington had difficulty moving the ball all night against the Wicomico defense.

The Indians went ahead 12-0 when Jordan Brittingham scored on a 23-yard touchdown run.

Wi-Hi scored twice in the fourth quarter as Raekwon McCarter had a 4-yard touchdown run and Cameren Campbell had an interception return for a touchdown.

Both teams play again Friday as Wi-Hi plays Snow Hill at Salisbury University and Washington plays host to Kent Island.

In their next game, the Indians clash with the Snow Hill Eagles in a non-league bout, on Friday. Wicomico will attempt to move on its 1-0 season record. The Eagles enter the bout with a 0-1 record after their 40-6 league loss to Cambridge-South Dorchester.
