Archmere Football Undefeated After DMA Win, Earns #1 Seed
In a regular-season finale on November 12 at Fusco Memorial Stadium, Archmere took advantage of turnovers and some solid defense for a decisive 27-7 win against Delaware Military Academy. The game was marketed as the "most highly anticipated game of the season" as two of the state’s remaining undefeated teams matched up under the lights in front of a large crowd. "The Auks turned in one of their best defensive performances, holding the Seahawks offense to a single touchdown and stopping them three times on fourth downs."
“Coach (Omar) Richardson has a great game plan every week. The D line stepped up, linebackers stepped up. Everyone stepped up. We just played together today,” senior Kevin DiGregorio said of the win.
The 10-0 season earned Archmere the #1 seed and a first round bye in a very competitive Class 2A, where their first opponent will be the winner of #8 Saint Mark's versus #9 Howard. Archmere will play in the quarterfinals on Saturday, November 27 at home at 12:00pm.
