New Town High football prides itself on defense. It was on full display Saturday as the Titans defeated Randallstown, 35-0, in a Baltimore County contest.

Keontae Williams recovered a fumble in the end zone as Titans posted their second shutout in as many outings. Senior Teon Dukes and junior Zavion Woodard led New Town’s offense with two rushing touchdowns each.

Titans assistant coach Bryant Jones, whose team has outscored its opponents, 77-0, said New Town wanted to impose its will against its neighborhood rival Rams (0-2) Saturday.

“We wanted to show our dominance,” said Jones, whose team defeated Pikesville in their debut last weekend. “Football’s back and it’s great.”

Woodard opened the scoring with a 22-yard scamper in the first quarter. After a big punt return from Morgan State University commit Jumar Hines, Dukes exploded untouched up in the middle and into the end zone for a 14-0 lead.

Woodard added his second score with a short run. Randallstown had a punt snap sailed over the punter’s head and the ball went into the end zone where Williams fell on top.

Jones commended the efforts of Williams (middle linebacker) , Rakiheem Olalekan (defensive end),  Ta’Shaun Skinner (cornerback), Hines (safety), Tim Welsh (defensive end), Armon Martin (defensive tackle)  and Zion Antoine (linebacker).

New Town returns to action to April 10 when they host Parkville.
