CAMBRIDGE – The Vikings finished their regular-season schedule with a 48-29 Friday, over Talbot County rivals Easton High School (2A). Cambridges-South Dorchester’s record climbed to 7-3 after the win, while the Easton Warriors fell to 4-6.

Though the final score made the game look almost like a blowout, that tally doesn’t do justice to the Warriors’ efforts and the close competition that took place through most of the contest.

The Vikings went up early, with their first trip into the end zone taking place just a little more than a minute into the first quarter. But the boys from Easton replied time after time, keeping it close.

In the fourth quarter, the Warriors were within five points of tying, but a couple of late touchdowns sealed the deal for the Vikings.

The victory clinched the number-two seed for C-SD in the playoffs. That means that the Vikings will have home-field advantage in the first round, when Perryville comes to Cambridge on Friday.

Perryville will arrive with a 6-4 record. The game might present something of a mystery to the opposing coaching staffs, with the teams not having met during the regular season.

On Friday, Perryville beat Bohemia Manor, 19-14, to earn the third seed.

The Vikings defense will keep their eyes on Kenyetta Bailey, who is averaging 83.4 yards rushing per game. Tyler Nasuta is racking up almost 150 yards passing per game, while Tanner Dimauro leads the Panther’s defense with 6.8 tackles per game.

Game time is 6 p.m.
