Despite a new coach and considerable turnover in personnel, Douglass' football team continues its winning ways.

New coach Alonzo Lee has guided the Ducks to two straight wins, including Monday's 35-0 win over Carver. The Ducks haven't give up a point in either game, defeating Woodlawn, 28-0, in Week 1.


"It feels great to get off to a good start," Lee said. "We're doing some good things. We've had to make some adjustments, but the guys are really buying into the system right now.

"The biggest thing is discipline. I'm a firm believer that discipline wins two additional games per year. We're pushing to play solid technique and just play disciplined, and that gives us a chance every day."

The Ducks, who play in Baltimore City's Division I, picked up their first division win of the season at Carver.

Quarterback Ke'Andre Coale-Robinson ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more. He hit Malik Holloway and Deangelo Jackson for the two scores. Damion Gray ran for Douglass' other touchdown.

Friday, the Ducks host Digital Harbor, which won Monday against Edmondson, 14-0, in the Ravens RISE High School Showdown.

Baltimore City teams play twice this week because last week's games were rescheduled for Monday. Schools were closed early because of the heat Thursday and Friday, with no practice either day. The games originally were rescheduled for Saturday morning, but that was another hot day with a high heat index, so the games were played Monday.
