Waldorf, MD – Friday night saw each of the four undefeated teams in SMAC face one another. One of those games, (4-0) Huntingtown at (4-0) North Point, was week five’s SMAC Game of the Week.
The game began close and looked to be a competitive matchup between these Chesapeake division foes. Huntingtown scored first but fumbled the hold on the extra point, making the score 0-6 in the first quarter. North Point was then able to score on a long pass in the first half, making the halftime score a competitive 7-6.
The second half was a different story, North Point embraced their success through the air and before Huntingtown fans could blink, the score jumped up to 28-6. North Point kicked a field goal at the end of the game, making the final score 31-6.
Both teams had stout run defenses, aside from a few plays. The five touchdowns scored in this game, four by North Point and one by Huntingtown, were all scored through the air and North Points ability to pass the ball down the field was the difference in this game. Three interceptions and several drops by the Hurricanes hindered their ability to keep up with the Eagles.
North Point senior receivers Deandre Beverly and Malik Lawrence accounted for two touchdowns each and junior quarterback Asa Williams threw all four touchdowns.
The other game between undefeateds last week was between Northern and St. Charles. Northern lost that game 12-0 and travels to North Point this week.
Huntingtown, now (4-1), returns home to face the 3-2 Thomas Stone Cougars who lost to (3-2) Calvert 48-20 last week.
