St. Georges, Howard square off in battle of Top 10 teams
Week 6 of the high school football season takes the 1290 The Ticket broadcast crew to historic Baynard Stadium as two Top 10 teams square off in a Blue Hen Flight B conference battle.
The Selby twins ran No. 2 St. Georges (4-1) to an easy 42-6 win over Wilmington Charter last week. Taronn Selby scored two rushing touchdowns and had an interception return for a third to lead the Hawks. Brother Keyjuan chipped in with rushing scores of 10 and 13 yards. The Hawks defense dominated, forcing five turnovers.
No. 6 Howard (4-1) suffered its first loss of the season, 45-0, to top-ranked Hodgson. The Wildcats entered that game with four victories and easily won three of them by more than three touchdowns. But Howard couldn’t hold off a Silver Eagles team that played like a No. 1 team should. In its four wins, the Wildcats have managed to score on the ground, through the air and on defense, and they’ll need to be successful in all three phases of the game to have a chance to knock off the Hawks.
1290 The Ticket’s coverage begins at 6:30 with the Glasgow Medical Aid Units Pregame Show followed by kickoff at 7. Tune in to 1290 The Ticket or 1290TheTicket.com to hear all the action.
