The Kent Island Bay Times - - Sports -

CENTREVILLE — The 2017 Bay­side Con­fer­ence foot­ball sea­son opened Fri­day, with Class 2A East power Queen Anne’s County High play­ing peren­nial 1A East con­tender Cam­bridge-SD for the first time 2012.

The Lions’ run­ning game and lar­ce­n­ist de­fense proved to be the dif­fer­ence in a 28-0 vic­tory over the Vik­ings.

Ryan Muller rushed for 120 yards and two touch­downs, and safety Gar­rett Mur­ray made two red-zone in­ter­cep­tions to halt Cam­bridge-SD scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“It was a nice win,” Queen Anne’s head coach Donny Graef said. “The of­fense played well. We have eleven new starters this year, so it was a great test for us.

“We know Cam­bridge has a good quar­ter­back, and we knew we had our hands full,” Graef added. “Our kids stepped up. Our sec­ondary played re­ally well. We put pres­sure on him with our rush, which con­trib­uted to our take­aways. It was just an over­all great job de­fen­sively. That has a lot to do with our de­fense coach Al Wa­ters.”
