By Jerry Del Priore

It was a tough week for area teams, as they went 1-3 in PSAL action. Here is the Canarsie Courier’s weekly roundup on how the programs fared.

South Shore 48, Petrides 12

The Vikings’ high-powered offense compiled 553 yards, 147 in the air and 406 on the ground, en route to a 48-12 blowout win over host Petrides on Saturday. The victory ran South Shore’s record to a perfect 4-0 in the PSAL’s Bowl division.

The running tandem of Dupreme Robinson (156) and Timothy Bowers (127) victimized the Panthers for 283 yards and 3 touchdowns while Equan Yunus (82) added two TDs—one the ground, and another as a receiver.

Senior Viking quarterback Darrius Nichols completed five of six passes for 147 yards, with two scores. Sophomore

Omar Jarrett chipped in with a 45-yard touchdown reception. Robinson continued his impressive defensive play this season, making a game-high eight tackles.

Next game: South Shore travels to Tilden Sunday October 6 for a noon matchup.

Mckee/Staten Island Tech 28, Tilden 24

Tilden (2-2) amassed 368 yards of offense, but it wasn’t enough to beat Mckee/Staten Island Tech, as the Blue Devils lost, 28-24, in Staten Island in a Saturday Bowl division affair.

Senior Tilden signal caller Royston Bacchus connected on six of nine attempts for 152 yards and added two rushing scores in defeat. Senior Kenroy Kerr led the Blue Devils’ ground game with 127 yards on 16 carries, with a score.

Defensively, seniors Joseph Bacchus and Tashane Brown made seven tackles apiece for Tilden.

Senior Sharks’ quarterback enjoyed a solid overall offensive game, throwing for 90 yards on seven of 15 tosses, with a touchdown and a pickoff, and added 51 on 12 touches, with a rushing TD. Vincent even pulled down a 30-yard reception.

Running back Jim Campbell led the Sharks’ ground attack with 64 yards on 5 carries, one of which found the end zone, while Stephan Garrick made three catches for 54 yards, with a score.
