The Severna Park JV football team kicked off the Friday of homecoming weekend with a 36-0 win over Glen Burnie on October 18.
The Falcons (5-2) received three rushing touchdowns from Joe DeSimone, a rushing touchdown by LJ Cooper and a 75-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Caleb Sartalamacchia in their dominant win over the Gophers. Talan Livingston highlighted a shutout defensive game for the Falcons with two sacks, while quarterback Aiden Milewski had positive gains running and throwing and Tristan Newhouse was 4-of-4 kicking on extra points in the victory.
Coach Sam Hudson commended the JV Falcons on their efforts in a complete win.
“Our offensive line did a really great job firing off the ball and opening up holes for our running backs,” Hudson said. “Our defense just did their job, stayed in their gaps, stayed in their holes and really worked together as a unit to shut them down.”
The win came a week after the Falcons notched their biggest victory of the year in a 14-6 win over previously undefeated South River on the Seahawks’ home turf on October 11. Against the Seahawks, Milewski threw a touchdown pass to Chad Brown, and Omar White had a rushing touchdown. Kevin Bredeck had two interceptions, and Sartalamacchia and Evan Stroble both had interceptions in the win.
The victory was a signature win for the season against the presumptive favorite Seahawks.
“We had a really good week of practice leading up to [the game against South River],” Hudson said. “They were preparing every single day, working hard, they were just really focused. Defensively, they knew what they were going to run; they had just prepared so much. As soon as [South River] would shift, they had an idea what they were going to run. Offensively, same thing. [Aiden] did a great job of switching it right to left for us and leading the offense, and again our line opened up holes, and the running backs ran hard.”
