Kent County High School football

WORTON — Freshman quarterback Marcus Boyle broke a couple of tackles on the way to a 55-yard touchdown run on Kent County’s first possession Oct. 17, a thrilling start to the return of junior varsity football here.

But Cambridge-South Dorchester responded with a TD and 2-point conversion for the 8-7 victory.

All the scoring was done in the first half.

Kent slipped to 1-2 with one game remaining.

Second-year head coach Dave Boyle is trying to grow the football program here, relaunching an abbreviated jayvee schedule. The last time there was junior varsity football at KCHS was 2010, when the Trojans went 2-7.

Last week, freshman Will Maier, on loan from the soccer team, booted the point-after kick to give Kent an early 7-0 lead.

The guests from Cambridge scored on their second possession to take the lead for good, as it turned out.

Marcus Boyle rushed for 85 yards on nine carries and completed one of six passes for 10 yards. Freshman Josh Suwala had the lone reception.

Freshman Brandon Cannon gained 60 yards on 14 carries, and led Kent’s defense with seven tackles.

Anthony Mallory had six tackles and Jamar Ringgold came up with an interception.
