Stel­lar play on both ends sparks K. Is­land against the In­di­ans

Record Observer - - Sports -

STEVENSVILLE — The Buc­ca­neers are cruis­ing into the tough­est part of their sched­ule.

Kent Is­land High’s foot­ball team eas­ily dis­patched Wi­comico, 48-8, Fri­day evening at Andy Schipul Sta­dium, what was once an epic Bay­side Con­fer­ence ri­valry now dwin­dling to just an­other road block for the Bucs.

Play­ing with­out lead­ing rusher Dy­lan Fin­lay due to an undis­closed rea­son, Kent Is­land posted one of its most com­plete of­fen­sive ef­forts of the sea­son, to­tal­ing 448 yards of­fense on 48 snaps, a spec­tac­u­lar 9.3 yards per play.

“We wanted to get back to bal­ance af­ter last week,” Bucs head coach Damian Fer­rag­amo said af­ter his team moved to 6-0. “We had a spe­cific game plan for a spe­cific op­po­nent last week, and it was ef­fec­tive, but we’re a bal­anced foot­ball team.

“We have re­ceiv­ing weapons and we wanted to get back to it, and not go too long with­out those guys get­ting the ball,” Fer­rag­amo added.

Lead­ing the charge was se­nior quar­ter­back Trent Jack­son, bounc­ing back from a quiet Week 5 ef­fort against Park­side with 226 yards pass­ing and four touch­downs. Se­nior full­back Jor­dan Mar­ciano was the ben­e­fi­ciary of two of those tosses, turn­ing the short passes into catch-and-run TDs of 47 and 62 yards. Se­nior Sean Mooney also net­ted five re­cep­tions for 60 yards, in­clud­ing a 21-yard touch­down con­nec­tion in the sec­ond half. Se­nior tight end J.C. Getz made three catches for 49 yards.

Mar­ciano’s two scores, how­ever, were the high­lights of the con­test.

The first one, a 47-yarder, put Kent Is­land on the board at the 9-minute, 18-sec­ond mark
