In their inaugural first season,Detroit East English Village Prep is certainly off to a strong start. After a week one loss to Oak Park, East Village is on a four game winning streak,and are atop of the PSL-East at 4-1.  Led by TE and Michigan commit Khalid Hill and DB/RB Desmond King,a Ball State commit,the Bulldogs have dominated league play thus far.

And that storyline continued today as East Village dismissed Southeastern today in a 39-0 blowout win. East English Village wasted no time,and scoring on their first posession,with a 17-yard touchdown run by Nate Boulware 3:36 into the game. Southeastern was forced to punt on their first possession,but the ball went over the head of the punter,and East English Village recovered it inside the 20-yard line. Desmond King latered scored on a 4-yard touchdown run with 5:26 left in the 1st quarter to make it 14-0.

Turnovers plagued Southeastern all day,as the East English Village defense forced four fumbles and one interception. The interception would turn out to be a big one for senior Desmond King. It ended a scoring threat on the 11-yard line late in the 3rd for Southeasern,and King became the state's all-time interception leader. East English Village controlled the clock with their running game,scoring six times on the ground. A bulk of that came in the 2nd quarter,when Leon Timmons took the ball 36-yards for a score with 5:49 left in the 2nd,and King ran for scores of 3,and 47-yards to end the half.

Southeastern finally did get on the board early in the 3rd quarter, but a 45-yard touchdown pass from William Morgan to Kenyatta Singleton was negated by a holding penalty.
