DeMatha High School of Hyattsville, Md., one of the top-ranked football schools in the nation, remains embroiled in scandal after five of its players were dismissed from the team for allegedly soliciting prostitutes during a game trip in North Carolina a week ago.

But DeMatha didn’t let the scandal be a distraction, as they handled Baltimore’s Calvert Hall, 23-14, during a home game Sept. 7.

DeMatha was led by junior quarterback John Lovett, who completed 9-of-14 passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns. Junior running back Mark Allen also had an outstanding performance for DeMatha, rushing for 123 yards on 21 carries. Allen also caught a touchdown pass from Lovett, the second score of the game.

DeMatha got on the scoreboard with a short touchdown pass from Lovett to junior receiver Spencer Kleinrichert.

Calvert Hall scored 14 points later in the second half, but by then DeMatha had already made its way to a comfortable lead to secure the win.

DeMatha (2-0 overall) will face Loyola Blakefield on Sept 14.
