SALISBURY – The Vikings went into Friday’s game ready for a close and competitive contest against the Wicomico High School Indians, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Following a 55-20 loss to the home team, the Vikes came home with a record of 4-3, as the Indians climbed to 5-2.

It’s been an up-and-down season for C-SD – after starting with a close win over Queen Anne’s County, the Vikings got thumped by Woodbridge and North Caroline. They then dominated Colonel Richardson, Nandua and Washington, and were set for a tough match on Friday.

But the Indians came out strong and took an early lead that the Vikings couldn’t overcome.

On offense, their usual speed on the ground getting around the corners and into the open field didn’t work for them – the Indians were just as fast, and met the Vikes at the sidelines, limiting their gains rushing.

C-SD’s defensive front had trouble with the Indians’ running back Cameron Kodua, who powered his way to gains throughout the contest.

Quarterback Jyquan Farrare was 9 of 16 for 170 yards; John Henry was 1 for 1, for 49 yards.

Camren Lake carried the ball 5 times for 25 yards; Khalik Beasley was 12 for 8, Dario Belizaire was 3 for 21.

Logan Middleton caught four passes for 132 yards; Shamar Young was 2 for 55; and Tranell Clanton was 2 for 44.

Malik Ennals led the team in tackles, with 5 and 8 assists; Shamar Young was 4 and 4; and Tranell Clanton was 3 and 3. Clanton also earned the Vikings’ only sack of the game. Sophomore Jay’zon Roberts grabbed C-SD’s only interception of the game, while Camren Lake snagged two fumbles.

Malik Ennals racked up 79 yards on 4 kickoff returns; while Khalik Beasley was 2 for 56 and Camren Lake 2 for 21.

Beasley, Middleton and Lake each scored a touchdown. Drew Warfield was 2 for 3 on extra points.

This Friday, the Vikings will host the Kent County Trojans, who will come to Cambridge with a record of 2-5. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
