PSAL Football City Conference.

After seven weeks of PSAL Football City Conference action, the South Shore Vikings remain atop the division with a 7-0 mark, as two games remain on the regular season schedule.

South Shore Vikings

Continuing its perfect season thus far, South Shore pounded Flushing, 57-0, last Friday.

The Vikings sit in first place with 1304 Power Points. South Shore has wins over Boys & Girls, Fort Hamilton, Erasmus Hall, New Utrecht, Tottenville, Curtis and Flushing so far this year.

While the Vikings were undefeated a few seasons ago, head coach Matt Ciquera feels this could be arguably his best squad in his eight years at the Canarsie school, given the fact of the difficulty of this campaign’s schedule.  

“I would have to say so, considering the programs we just beat,” Ciquera said when asked if this was his most talented South Shore squad he’s ever coached. “Yes. Beating Erasmus, and then Curtis and Tottenville in back-to-back weeks. I did have a team that went 10-0 in the regular season my second year we came up. But the schedule we had is nothing like the schedule we’re playing this year.”

Next Game: Saturday versus Brooklyn Tech at 12 @Boys & Girls High School field.

Erasmus Hall

Erasmus Hall holds the second spot with 1176 Power Points. The 6-1 Dutchmen, whose only defeat came against the Vikings, picked up victories versus Curtis, New Dorp, JFK, Midwood, Fort Hamilton and Lincoln.

Next Game: E-Hall hosts Canarsie Saturday at noon.

Tottenville Pirates

The Pirates are in third place with 1053 power points. Tottenville has wins over Lincoln, Boys & Girls, Flushing, Susan Wagner, New Dorp and Curtis. But lost to South Shore.  

Next Game: Saturday at noon @Port Richmond.

Midwood Hornets

The Hornets land in the fourth position with a 6-1 record and 1026 points.

Midwood has beaten Flushing, Curtis, New Dorp, Clinton, Lincoln and Fort Hamilton. They lost to E-Hall, however.

Next Game: The Hornets host JFK Saturday at 12:00 p.m.

Lehman Lions

The Lions secured the fifth spot and 651 power points with a 32-20 win over the New Utrecht Utes last week on the road.

In addition to defeating the Utes, the Lions have triumphed over Campus Magnet, Canarsie, Clinton and Port Richmond, with their only loss coming at the hands of Bronx rival, Truman.

Next game: Saturday at 7:00 p.m. against Boys & Girls @Evander Childs Field.
