Atlantic City defeats Absegami 32-7 to improve to 2-0 | High school

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP — Atlantic City’s high school defense shut down Absegami, and the Vikings got a three-touchdown performance from Sah’Nye Degraffrenreidt for a 32-7 victory in a West Jersey Football League game on Friday night.

Degraffenreidt, a wide receiver, caught 29-yard and 20-yard TD passes from quarterback Joe Lyons. On the final play of the game, Degraffenreidt returned a kickoff 85 yards for a score.

“We came to play,” said Degraffenreidt, a 15-year-old sophomore and Atlantic City resident. “Our running backs opened things up for the receivers. We had a lot of offense.”

Atlantic City improved to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the WJFL United division.

“It feels good to be 2-0 down,” Atlantic City coach Keenan Wright said. “Our defense is quite fast and we played together. We had a lot of rain this week, so we watched a lot of movies. We were well prepared. »

Vikings running back Allen Packard went 8 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. AC’s other touchdown came when linebacker Iquan Campos snapped a fumble from Absegami in the air and returned it 70 yards for a score. Lyons also had a 2-point conversion after AC’s third touchdown.

“They were throwing the ball higher to their second quarterback (Emir Chambers of Absegami, who played the second half) and I got it, saw the ball and got it,” said said Campos, an 18-year-old senior and Atlantic City resident. “I mainly play defense so I don’t have many chances to run the ball. It was a good comeback.”

Chambers scored on a 71-yard run around left end late in the game. Shawn O’Brien kicked the extra run.

Lyons, a junior, completed 10 of 15 passes for 159 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Degraffenreidt had five catches for 85 yards.
