The regular season came to a close with some terrific high school football in the MIAA and the public schools over the weekend.

McDonogh polished off a dominating season in the A Conference and St. Paul’s won a thriller in the final seconds of the B Conference final.

A handful of public school games also played out like playoff games, especially with Westminster and Arundel winning nailbiters to earn their way into the regionals.

Here’s a look at some of the big numbers that stood out after a jam-packed Week 10.
