Final Bayside Power Poll

December 16, 2018


Explaining the Poll:

This poll includes both the Regular Season and the Playoffs but since both North Caroline and JM Bennett both lost in their Region finals and since Caroline defeated Bennett head to head there are no changes. If Bennett had won, they would have finished above North Caroline despite the head to head win. The reasoning would have been that a win would have been one more playoff win than Caroline and a trip to the State-Semis in a higher class (3A) however that did not happen. Parkside lost to North Caroline in the opening round so no movement there. Also, Cambridge and Colonel also were defeated in the 1st round so no movement among those teams either.  

1...North Caroline (11-1)-The Bulldogs fell at home to Elkton 23-14 in the 2A East Region Final. Caroline led 7-3 at the end of the first quarter but trailed 17-7 at the half after getting stuffed on 4th down right before the end of the first half. Elkton scored three straight touchdowns scoring first then getting down 7-3 for the win. Elkton has defeated Caroline in 2 of their last 3 meetings which have taken place over the last four years. The Bulldogs have been superb in the regular season the last four years going 38-2 but are just 1-3 in their last four playoff games. Next Game: Season Over

2...JM Bennett (9-3)-The Clippers fell in the 3A East Regional Final to Chesapeake-AA 36-21. Jah Long had two long receiving touchdowns in the loss. Turnovers giving Chesapeake short fields hurt the Clippers. Bennett finally closed the book on its historic season, which included the program’s first playoff win since 1990. Bennett has established themselves nicely over the last few years making the playoffs in 3 of the last 4 years and combining for a record of 27-13. Next Game: Season Over

3...Parkside (8-3)-The Rams fell on the road to North Caroline 41-27 in 2A East action on November 10th. Parkside pulled within 34-27 with a little under 9 minutes remaining but would get no closer. Two fumbles in the game led to 14 points for North Caroline. The Rams made the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and completed their 5th straight winning season, the longest amongst the South teams. Next Game: Season Over

4...Wicomico (6-4)-The Indians were blanked by Salisbury city rival JM Bennett 35-0 ending any playoff chances. Five turnovers plagued Wi-Hi in the game. Inconsistency brought on by mistakes like turnovers hurt Wicomico who could look good one week and not so good the next week. They still won more than they lost and had two more wins than last year. It was their first winning season since 2014. Next Game: Season Over 

5...Cambridge-SD (7-4)-The Vikings fell at home in the rain to #3 seed Perryville 32-7 in 1A East Action. Cambridge trailed 12-7 at halftime. The Vikings fumbled turning over the ball on 3 of their first 5 possessions in the second half and Perryville scored on their first three possessions of the second half. The Vikings whose run game was shut down almost completely in the first half was also unable to take advantage of the three interceptions of Perryville on the night. Cambridge had another typical year winning the 1A title and winning between 6-7 games. They have not had a losing season since 2006. First year Head Coach Gavin Parker with a young team is off to a good start leading the program. Next Game: Season Over 

6...Kent Island (5-5)-The Bucs defeated rival Queen Anne’s in ‘The War on the Shore’ to win the Chesapeake Cup 28-23. Kent Island broke a 5-game losing streak with the win. RB Ke’Juan Johnson had 224 yards on 27 carries in the win. The Bucs streak of 10 consecutive years to the playoffs was ended earlier in the season. Low numbers, injuries and youth all contributed to a tough year for Kent Island. Next Game: Season Over  

7...Queen Anne’s (4-6)-The Lions fell on the road in the ‘War on the Shore’ to rival Kent Island 28-23. Hassan Biggus had 200 yards rushing on 12 carries in his final game of the year. The loss of Defensive Coordinator Al Waters, multiple coaching changes on that side of the ball, lack of speed and a slow start for the offense all contributed to a losing season. Next Game: Season Over

8...Easton (4-6)-The Warriors fell on the road rival Cambridge-SD 47-28. QB Ryan O’Connor threw for 212 yards and 2 TDs but also had 2 interceptions. The defense gave up 421 yards rushing. Easton lost several close games this year and easily could have been playoff bound. However, Easton had issues defensively early in the year in not closing out games and giving up scores. Penalties also were an issue. The offense was explosive and thrived in the passing game with So. QB Ryan O’Connor who threw 23 TD passes. Next Game: Season Over

9...Colonel Richardson (5-6)-The Colonels fell to the road to Havre De Grace 60-21 in 1A East action. Havre De Grace scored 41 points in the second half to run away with it. The game was just 19-7 at the half and early in the second half Colonel cut the deficit to 19-14. However, a controversial call on a fumble by Havre De Grace early in the 2nd half that gave them the ball back seemed to be the catalyst for the Warriors to get on track and pull far away from Colonel. The Colonels have built themselves a respectable program over the last four years with two straight trips to the playoffs with a thin roster. Head Coach Dan Magnum has done a lot with a little and he, the other coaches and players are to be commended once again. Next Game: Season Over

10...Stephen Decatur (3-7)-The Seahawks defeated in county rival Snow Hill 61-0 to get their first win since early September. Devin Waters and Ty’Quan Briddell each had two touchdowns. It was another disappointing season for the Seahawks who now have had five consecutive losing seasons. Next Game: Season Over


11...Kent County (3-7)-The Trojans defeated Patterson Mill (Harford County) 14-8 in a non-conference game in a big rain storm. The Trojans under new Head Coach David Boyle with three wins this season had a chance at winning 5 with close losses to Kent Island and Concordia Prep. Next Game: Season Over


12...Washington (1-9)-The Jags fell on the road on Thursday night to Parkside 66-6. It was another tough year for Washington who is 10-40 over the last 5 years. They did boast decent numbers by their standards with 29 players. A combination of poor offense and defense was at issue this year. Next Game: Season Over

13...Snow Hill (0-10)-The Eagles were blanked on the road to in-county rival Stephen Decatur 61-0. Snow Hill has lost 12 straight games going back to last year. Next Game: Season Over
