Recently, someone posed the question on a local football forum: “How good is Western Tech?”
The answer to that question still may not be completely answered, but the Wolverines have offered plenty of evidence to support the notion that they are a real contender for a 1A state football championship.
On Friday, Western Tech improved to 11-0 with a 50-12 rout of visiting Sparrows Point in a 1A North Region semifinal playoff game at CCBC-Essex.
Powerful Tech runing back Kane Parson rushed for 154-yards and four touchdowns in the win, while quarterback Juleon Killikelly-Lee completed a pair of touchdown passes and added a third score in the running game.
Against the Pointers (6-5), Western Tech raced out to a 21-0 first half lead, but Sparrows Point battled back briefly. After the Sparrows Point defense recovered a fumble at the Wolverine two, Derek Masters scored on a two-yard run. Sparrows Point then recovered a loose ball on the ensuing kickoff, at the Tech 13, and eventually scored on a short run by quarterback Justin Gensicki.
The Wolverines limited their mistakes from there and pulled away again, as Killikelly-Lee broke loose for a 48-yard touchdown run and followed with a three-yard scoring toss to Javon Jagroop, to take a three score lead into halftime.
Tech will now play for the 1A Region championship on Friday, as it hosts Brunswick on Friday at CCBC-Catonsville.
