CAMBRIDGE – Viking Stadium was the site Sunday for the final game of the region’s football all stars. The 11th Annual Eastern Shore Bowl gives the 12th graders one last hurrah for friends and family, as well as a chance for college scouts to evaluate the players.

South broke a seven-year losing streak, beating home team North 35-13. Cambridge-South Dorchester sent five players to the North: Shamar Young, Caleb Scott, Tranell Clanton, Ethan Carmine and Dylan Doll.

The South had players from Sussex Tech, Milford, Laurel, Northampton, Nandua, Arcadia, Bennett, Wicomico, Parkside, Stephen Decatur, Snow Hill and Washington high schools. Eastern Shore Bowl Manager Jake Coleman said in an email to the Dorchester Banner, “Their squad has 56 players and is the most talented South squad I’ve seen.”

North had an expanded roster with players from Old Mill, Dundalk, North East, Annapolis, Bohemia Manor, Kent Island, Kent County, Queen Anne’s County, Cambridge, Easton and Colonel Richardson high schools. “They have a 45-player roster, and I believe they also have the most talented roster they have ever had,” Mr. Coleman said.

Parkside Head Coach Brendan Riley led South to the win, behind an offensive production of 334 total yards. The North picked up 215 yards.

“Thanks for everyone who supported this game,” a statement from organizers said. “Special thanks to the Bayside Conference officials, volunteers, media, and recruiters who are making our event bigger and better every year.”
