On Friday, November 12, the playoffs officially started for Maryland high school football teams. North Point, which struggled in the playoffs in past years, journeyed to Arundel High School in hopes of continuing its winning streak and moving on to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in school history. Arundel, however, had other plans.
The Arundel Wildcats are known for having one of the most prolific passing attack in the area. Following in the footsteps of Arundel graduate Billy Cosh (now at Kansas State University), Wildcats quarterback Nick Rosati began working on North Point’s often stellar defense early on. After throwing a slant for a touchdown on their first drive, Arundel took the early lead at 7-0.
