DeMatha wins big over Bishop O'Connell, 24-6

On Saturday, October 1 DeMatha fed Bishop O'Connell heavy doses of running back Mark Allen all afternoon to take a 24-6 victory over their conference rival. Between the penalties and turnovers, the Stags made winning a lot harder on themselves.

"I can't explain it," DeMatha head coach Elijah Brooks said after the game. Ball security is something that the Stags emphasize in practice. "For whatever reason we turned the ball over too much today."

DeMatha's defense shined managing to keep the Knights out of the end zone for much of the game.

"We did a good job game-planning all week and we brought intensity to the table," Brooks said. "We also got our fair share of turnovers, which helped. I'm very proud of their performance and hopefully we can build on that."

Coach Brooks was happy with the win, but recognized that his team is a work in progress.

"Mark Allen ran hard and made some plays where there wasn't much there. Taiwan Deal, no. 28, also did a great job for us today," Brooks said, "I think as an offensive unit, we're getting better we just have to limit the turnovers."

DeMatha will face a much harder challenge Saturday, October 8 when they take on Our Lady Of Good Counsel High School at Northwestern High School. Good Counsel heads into the match with a perfect 5-0 record.
