Perry Hall continued their perfect season and are now three wins away from a state title after defeating county rival Towson 55 to 0 in the 4A/3A North Regional Football Playoffs.
Perry Hall’s offense was too much for Towson as Gator Quarterback Da’Shaun Conway hit Wide Receiver Corey Costner on big plays in the air and the ground game of running backs Jacob Wagner and Tyler Green ran all over the Towson defense.
Towson was only able to enter into Gator territory four times and two trips resulted in turnovers as Noah Williams and Kornel Davis had interceptions for Perry Hall.
The Gators jumped out to a 35 to 0 lead before halftime. Conway connected with Costner on a 21-yard touchdown pass for the first score in the game. Conway threw for over 100 yards and also had a 15-yard touchdown run.
Wagner had 82 yards rushing and two touchdowns. He also had a 64-yard reception that setup a Green rushing touchdown.
Towson started off the second half by recovering an onside kick but that drive ended with a Noah Williams interception.
The Gator defense pitched the shutdown as Danial Tariq had made many key plays including recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown.
Towson was able to get the ball down to the Gator 20 and was trying to avoid the shutout. Not only did Perry Hall defender Kornel Davis intercept the ball, he ran it back for an 101-yard touchdown return to end the game.
Perry Hall advances to the state quarterfinals and improves to 11-0 on the season. They defeated Woodlawn in the first-round last week.
Their quarterfinal opponent will be determined as reseeding will begin after this week, but the Gators have the number one seed.
They have home field advantage in the state quarterfinals and the state semifinals if they win. The state title game is scheduled for Annapolis on the first week of December.
