Lakeside Football Crushed at Homecoming

This week's DeKalb County football round-up includes the Vikings' 63-0 loss to Stephenson on Thursday.

Quarterback Ken Allen snuck into the end zone from one yard out and Kwame Simon added the point after try to complete Miller Grove’s rally from a 20-0 third quarter deficit in the Wolverines’ 21-20 victory over the Arabia Mountain Rams.

This was the first meeting between the Wolverines (3-1) and Rams (1-3) and the win kept the Wolverines in the Region 6-AAAAA playoff race.

The Rams looked to have the game in hand following a 62-yard fumble return by Kwame Bowens for a 20-0 advantage with 4:29 left in the third quarter.

Miller Grove reversed the momentum driving right back down the field and scoring on a 28-yard pass play from Allen to Devante Parks with Simon’s point after making it 20-7 with 1:30 left in the third.

Allen helped pull the Wolverines within 20-14 as a Jordan Cathey interception set up a 25-yard pass to Myles Hughes to cut the gap to six with 10:15 to play.

Allen’s game-tying touchdown to set up Simon’s game-winning extra point came with 5:22 to play following a fumble return by Justin Swift to the Arabia 26.

The Rams drove down to the Miller Grove 27, but a holding penalty put them in a first and 28 they could not overcome and Miller Grove took over on downs and ran out the clock to seal the win.

Chamblee 29, South Atlanta 7
The Chamblee Bulldogs improved to 4-0 on the season for the first time since 2007 with a 29-7 victory over previously undefeated South Atlanta (3-1) at Lakewood.  The Bulldogs now take a week off before getting into Region 6-AAAA play in two weeks.

Tucker 56, Dunwoody 0
Yusef Minor returned to the No. 2 ranked Tucker Tigers lineup in a big way as he ran for 156 of the Tigers’ 376 rushing yards in a 56-0 Region 6-AAAAA win over the Dunwoody Wildcats (0-4) on Friday at North DeKalb Stadium.

Minor made a quick contribution as he ran for a 40-yard touchdown to give Tucker (4-0) an early 7-0 lead. Dallas Rivers and Dominique Sanders also had two touchdowns each in the win. Rivers two touchdowns came via the rush while Sanders had one rushing and the other on a punt return.

M.L. King 46, North Atlanta 0
The Martin Luther King Jr. Lions won their 14th consecutive regular season game as the defense pitched its third shutout of the season in a 46-0 win over North Atlanta (0-4) in Region 6-AAAAA play on Saturday at Lakewood.

The offense was led by Monqavious Johnson as the Lions’ quarterback tossed three touchdown passes, two to senior Demarquis Polite, in the 46-0 victory. The Lions improved to 4-0 on the season and 3-0 in region action.
