The Erasmus Hall football team keeps finding ways to win.
The Dutchmen kept it close, but walked off the field with another victory, maintaining their undefeated record by taking down Tottenville 42–35 on the road on Oct. 14.
Junior quarterback Aaron Cruickshank led the Erasmus Hall (6–0) offense with a whopping 158 rushing yards and four touchdowns on just eight carries. Cruickshank — who has picked up interest from Ohio State, Michigan, and Rutgers this season — averaged nearly 20 yards per carry.
Dejoree Addison chipped in two touchdowns of his own and racked up just over 100 all-purpose yards, as well.
Erasmus Hall led 28–7 at the half, but four touchdown passes from Tottenville quarterback Jason Feldman kept things interesting in the second half. The Dutchmen defense locked in down the stretch, however, limiting Feldman in the waning minutes of the Public Schools Athletic League City Conference tilt and, most importantly, cementing another victory.
Erasmus Hall hosts Canarsie on Oct. 22 before turning its attention to a road matchup against Curtis — the only other undefeated team in the league.
South Shore 24
Senior quarterback Jason Martin continued to make a name for himself out of the pocket on Oct. 14, once again sparking the Vikings (5–1) to another late-game victory. South Shore trailed 12–8 at halftime, but Martin’s arm helped turn things around in the second half. He finished with 115 passing yards, 58 rushing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.
Hubert Simon led the Vikings defense with seven tackles — including three for a loss — and five sacks.
Fort Hamilton 26
New Utrecht 24
The Tigers held on for the City Conference victory, led by a well-balanced ground game. Nicholas Wynter sparked the attack, recording a team-best 81 rushing yards and one touchdown on six carries. Seba Nekhet and Troy Booker combined for 116 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries.
Campus Magnet 0
Five different Hornets racked up yardage on the ground as Midwood cruised to a lopsided victory. Jason Dorsainvil led the charge with a team-best 100 rushing yards, but Matthew Boateng and Tyrese Weeks weren’t far behind with 96 and 90 rushing yards respectively. Boateng also notched a pair of touchdowns.
Port Richmond 26
Brooklyn Tech 20
The Engineers gave up the game-winning touchdown in overtime, dropping a heartbreaker in the squad’s final home game of the season. Despite the loss, Brooklyn Tech packed its stat sheet, led by quarterback Michael Marcovici who completed 18 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.
The Orange Wave dominated from the get-go in the shutout victory, led by quarterback Olatundo J. Bruin who threw for 87 yards and two touchdowns on just five completions. Dwight Adams added 119 rushing yards and one touchdown as well, carrying the ball just four times.
Sheepshead Bay 34
The Sharks ground game set the tone of the matchup as Aaron Adams and Matthew Agard combined for 226 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. Titus Leo led the defensive effort with a team-high 12 tackles, two interceptions, and one fumble recovery.
Susan Wagner 44
The Chiefs averaged more than 10 yards per carry, but it wasn’t enough in the City Conference matchup. Susan Wagner jumped out to a 30–15 lead at halftime, and Canarsie was unable to claw its way out of the early hole.
If there was a bright spot, it came on the ground as Johnny Watson racked up 202 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries.
