Blogs > Burney's Bites

Burney's Bites will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

The Great Burnzini - Friday Forecast

WEEK 2 - Top Games
Birmingham Detroit Country Day v. UofD-Jesuit - The Yellowjackets have too much firepower for UofD to handle. Josh Harris and Kenny Knight connect on a couple of long touchdowns, Brett Smith gets one too and Lee Bailey continues to shine in the backfield for Country Day. Senior safety Jason Ray caps off a big Y-Jackets win with a INT return for a score.
DCD 37 UofD-Jesuit 17
Clarkston v. Troy Athens - The host Red Hawks keep it competitive early, but Clarkston finally breaks out on offense in the second half. Jake Duzey gets two more TD's for Athens, however, its not nearly enough. Wolves senior slinger Tyler Scarlett shows his merit, throwing for 3 scores and running for another two.
Clarkston 45 TA 20
FH Harrison v. Rochester - Harrison's victory parade rides on as the Hawks offense remains strong. Vince Salatino throws for three, two to Aaron Burbridge - do we have another Mark Dell on our hands in this talented young soph - , and Chris Pride puts a pair into the end zone on the ground.
Harrison 35 Rochester 13
Highland Park v. Orchard Lake St. Mary's - Robert Bolden, Gary Hunter, and Earnest Thomas take out their frustrations from last weeks opening season loss to EGR on the visiting Polar Bears. Bolden throws for four TD's and surpasses the 300 yard mark, Hunter scores one on 'O' and 'D', and Thomas has two picks and two fumble recoveries as the Eaglets storm out to a big lead and never look back.
OLSM 52 HP 7
Rochester Hills Adams v. Stoney Creek - Sorry SC, the Highlanders are coming to town and they want to make a statement. Andrew Hammett comes up huge, throwing for 250 yards and two TD's, leading head coach Tony Partrito and Adams to the road win. The Adams faithfull, who always travel well, will be making the short drive home with big smiles on their faces.
Adams 28 SC 21
