Following this season's pattern, South Shore's defensive line failed to contain William E. Grady High School's running game as the Falcons (5-2) crushed the Vikings (0-7) 28-0.

The Falcons scoring started early in the first quarter with a seven-yard touchdown run by senior Ikeem Wil-liams and tacked on the two-point con-version for an 8-0 lead.

Williams continued his rushing on-slaught with two touchdowns in the second quarter and one in the third and went on to finish the game with 210 yards on 19 attempts and four touchdowns. With Williams leading the way and sophomore Rahim Sala-huddin adding 112 yards on 12 carries, the Falcons tallied 426 of their 448 total offensive yards on the ground. Quarterback Kenny Leveille threw 22 yards to Sylvester Mitchell for Grady's lone reception.

On the defensive side, Grady's line notched four sacks with three by Ro-mario Demosthene. Anthony Holder made the final sack while Kareem Scott added a fumble recovery.

The Vikings will try for their first win this Saturday when they visit the Campus Magnet High School Bulldogs (4-3).

The Falcons are looking forward to avenge a loss to Canarsie High School as the Chiefs host Grady this Satur-day.

"I've wanted to face Canarsie High School after losing to them last year. It will be a great game and we are also very close to them in the point standings right now," said Grady head coach Andrew Jashyn.
