Football By The Numbers for Week Four

Which stats stood out from Week Four?

This week's high school football slate had a little bit of everything -- upsets, big passing, big rushing -- and the number of undefeated teams is dwindling as the regular season nears its midpoint. Every team has given up at least a touchdown and many offenses have gone over the 100-point mark already.

Here's what stood out from the fourth week of high school football action:


Fourth quarter safeties – both on sacks in the end zone – to help Century seal an 18-12 win over North Carroll


Yard touchdown run by Alvonte Thompson in double overtime to give Mount Saint Joseph a 36-33 win over McDonogh


Field goals kicked by McDonogh’s Mike Shinsky in the double-overtime loss to Mount Saint Joseph


Players who ran for more than 100 yards in Old Mill’s 29-13 win over Arundel – Old Mill’s Peter Boone and David Marrocco and Arundel’s Larry Barnes and Donte Thompson
