Baltimore-area varsity football: By The Numbers for Week 2

Rain, rain just won’t go away and for the second week in a row, with many high school football games postponed from Friday to Saturday and a few moving to Sunday and Monday. One will conclude Tuesday. A few were called at the half and at least one was canceled.

Still, some big-time stats came out of the weekend’s soggy schedule — whether they were played on one day or two. Here’s a look at some of them.

0-2 — Archbishop Spalding’s record against Mother Nature this fall as the Cavaliers’ game against Benedictine, (Va.) was canceled Friday after their game against Good Counsel was called at halftime the week before.

3 — Touchdown connections between Broadneck quarterback Joshua Ehrlich and receiver Ethon Williams in the first half of Friday’s 35-0 win over North County.

9 — Yards per carry average for Loyola Blakefield’s rushing game in Friday’s rain-shortened 24-0 win over Boys’ Latin.

22 — Point deficit erased by Arundel en route to a 26-22 win over Meade in the Mears Cup rivalry game.

43 — Game winning streak for Wise ended by Calvert Hall Saturday with a 19-14 Cardinals’ victory.

47 — Yard field goal kicked by Towson’s Leighton Bechdel in Saturday’s 21-16 loss to Perry Hall.

73 — Point swing in one year for Liberty vs. Walkersville, which had been riding a 24-game regular-season winning streak. The Lions won 17-0 Friday after losing 56-0 last year.

95 — Yard interception return for a touchdown by Glenelg’s Wande Owens, who also ran for 199 yards and three touchdowns, in a 42-14 victory over rival Howard for the Elgard Trophy.

150 — Yards on two touchdown runs by Reservoir’s Marcus Pendelton in a 15-9 win over River Hill.

214 — Yards rushing by Concordia Prep’s Jhymir Pearson in the first half as the Saints led St. John’s Catholic Prep, 21-0, in a game that will resume Monday.

278 — Yards passing by Chesapeake-AA’s Dylan Young, who threw for one touchdown in a 21-10 win over Severna Park.

299 — Total yards gained by Arundel quarterback Austin Slye, who threw for 203 yards and one touchdown and ran for 96 and a touchdown in the win over Meade.

312 — Yards passing by Perry Hall quarterback Miles Crounse, who was 19-for-29 with three touchdown passes in a 21-16 win over Towson.

342 — Yards rushing by South River in its 40-0 win over Glen Burnie.

391 — Total yards gained by Milford Mill quarterback Rishon Holmes, who threw for 174 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 217 and one touchdown in a 48-8 win over Woodlawn.
