BERKLEY — Berkley High football earned its first victory of the season in dominating fashion, beating Hazel Park High 47-0 Sept. 12 at home.
“I feel kind of bad for Hazel Park. They were out a couple of their top guys, and that hurt them,” Berkley coach Chris Sikora said. “We had a great week of practice. The defense believed in the scheme and the offense is getting the timing down.”
Berkley scored on every possession except the final drive of the game when the clock ran out. The Bears led 40-0 at halftime after running only 13 plays.
Running back Alec Sanom led the way with three touchdown runs, totaling 185 yards on those three rushes.
“I couldn’t have done it without the offensive line,” he said. “I had to make one cut, and they did everything else.”
The Bears also received rushing scores from Carlton Williams and two from Josh Coleman. Coleman also caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Sam Silverstein.
Berkley goes to 1-2 overall and 1-1 in the Oakland Activities Association Blue Division. Up next, the Bears take on Birmingham Seaholm at 7 p.m. Sept. 20 at home.
Hazel Park goes to 0-3 and 0-2 in the Blue. The Vikings meet Royal Oak High at 7 p.m. Sept. 20 at home.
“Some kids played hard, and we had some kids that normally don’t play get in there, and they are getting better,” Hazel Park coach Scott Guthrie said.
