Bartram tops Central to advance in Public AAAA football

In the Public League AAAA quarterfiansl, Bartram got off to a good start, thanks to Al-Hajj Shabazz, in a 21-7 quarterfinal playoff football win over Central on Friday.

Shabazz scored on runs of 5 and 1 yards in the first half, and Brandon Jones put the game away with a 70-yard run in the fourth quarter after the Lancers (6-2) had closed to within a touchdown.

The Maroon Wave (7-2) led, 14-0, at the half.

The Lancers had their sights set on a league title after a remarkable turnaround under first-year coach Rich Drayton. Last year, Central suffered its first winless season since 1940.
The Lancers still have two games left in the regular season.
