In the third week of PSAL football action, there were several teams that took to the field once again. It was an action-packed weekend of public high school football in Gotham, with an exciting tilt taking place in the Bronx.
Here are six teams that played this past weekend, and how they fared.
A. P. Randolph — 44, Campus Magnet — 12
The Cougar train keeps on chugging along, as A. P. Randolph exploded for 444 offensive yards en route to a 41-22 drubbing of Campus Magnet (1-2) Saturday at Harry S. Truman High School Field. The win improves the Cougar record to 3-0 on the season.
Senior quarterback Nate Nurse completed six of 12 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns while rumbling for another score on the ground. Senior Zahill Campbell bolted for 145 and a TD on 14 carries, and 6-foot-2, 195-pound wide receiver Siba Aboudoulay enjoyed another electrifying performance, catching five passes for 143 yards and a touchdown.
Yomar Perez Peralta made four tackles and had a pick six for A.P. Randolph.
Bulldog signal caller Eric Shawn Barnett completed 10 of 20 attempts for 159 yards and two scores.
August Martin — 18, Mott Haven — 14
Junior running back Richard Thomas Jr. compiled 113 rushing yards and senior quarterback Glorious Enabulele threw for 64 yards and ran for 53 and two scores on eight touches in the Falcon (1-2) comeback victory over Mott Haven (1-1) on Saturday in the Bronx.
Senior Deven Rangasamy had one stop and an interception and Roman Summers recovered two fumbles for August Martin.
Lincoln — 42, Lehman — 6
The Railsplitters used a two-touchdown performance from junior quarterback Nahseem Deas, who threw for 101 yards and a TD and ran for 40 and another score, to help fuel their 42-6 lopsided win over Lehman (0-2) Friday at home. It was Lincoln’s first victory on the 2022 season after losing its first two games.
Senior Emmanuel Nicolas paced the Railsplitters’ ground attack with 105 yards and a touchdown on three touches and caught four passes for 101 yards and a TD.
