Varsity football: By The Numbers for Week 11

Wednesday, 15 November 2017, 02:08:36 PM. Which statistics stood out in Baltimore high school football for the first week of the playoffs?

The playoffs started with a bang — especially for Gilman’s Brandon Willis, who returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown against Calvert Hall — as the teams separated themselves even further with championships on the line next weekend. Regional titles will be up for grabs Friday and Saturday, while the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference holds its title game Sunday.

With postseason now in full swing, here’s a look at the statistics that stood out in Week 11.

0 — Touchdowns allowed by Glenelg in Friday night’s 14-6 win over River Hill, which had averaged more than 32 points per game

2 — Wins by St. Mary’s in back-to-back weeks over archrival Severn to qualify for and win the MIAA B Conference championship

3 — Touchdowns scored in three ways by Milford Mill freshman Rishon Holmes — one rushing, one passing and one receiving — in Saturday’s 46-14 win over C. Milton Wright

3 — Turnovers caused by Westminster’s Tavian Montgomery, who had two interceptions and recovered a fumble in the Owls’ 58-18 win over Watkins Mill on Friday night
