Kenwood put on an offensive display, on Saturday, in a 44-7 Baltimore County football victory over Dulaney.
A 30-yard touchdown run, on fourth down, by sophomore Jaime Nixon-Alark (7 carries 57 yards 1 touchdown 3 two-point conversions), and a 75-yard touchdown run by junior Travis Jenkins (15 carries 174 yards 1 touchdown) opened up what was a close game midway through the third quarter.
Senior quarterback Kenny Johnson continued his stellar play this season as he rushed for 177 yards on only nine carries and completing 5-of-7 passes for an additional 91 yards. Johnson accounted for two touchdowns in the air and one touchdown on the ground. Senior slotback Mike Caldwell had three receptions for 60 yards, and sophomore tight end Keith Moody had a 20 yard touchdown reception.
On the defensive side of the ball, senior linebacker Mike Quirk registered seven tackles. This was the sixth consecutive win over Dulaney for the Bluebirds.
Kenwood now prepares for their annual rivalry game with Perry Hall. Over the past decade these games are usually close, hard hitting affairs with important league and playoff implications. The 2006 game decided the County Championship (a thrilling 28-26 Perry Hall win). The winner of this year’s game will have an edge in the 4A North Playoff picture at the midway point of the season. Kick-off is set for 7:00 p.m. in Kenwood’s Collins Stadium on Friday.
