Arundel Football gets job done at Chesapeake, setting up showdown against Old Mill

By Jordan Johnson and Connor Haynie

The Arundel Football team continued their winning streak with a 49-22 win on the road against Chesapeake.

The team, which hasn’t lost since late September, was led by running back Darius Hunter, who totaled 234 yards rushing in the win.  Darius reached a huge milestone in the win, as he officially ran for 1,000 yards.

Darius said, “I’m not really surprised that I hit 1,000 because I worked really hard this off season.  I feel like I could’ve reached 1,000 in week 6 or 7 if it weren’t for penalties that got called back.”

As Arundel enters week 9 they face division rival Old Mill in a must win game.  Arundel and Old Mill are currently tied for the third seed in the county with a record of 6-2, and this game will determine who will carry their season into the playoffs.

When asked about the big game, Hunter said, “We know what Old Mill is going to try to do, but we should get the job done if we play our game.”

With thirst to end the two year playoff drought, the Wildcats are entering week 9 very confidently and have their eyes set on the playoffs.  Arundel had a rough beginning to their season, but have stepped up and remained consistent in the win column since week 5.
