Week 11 Roundup
Bishops 51, Horizon 13 – It didn’t take long for this regular season finale of the Knights’ (7-3, 2-2 CL) annual “Fish Bowl” to cement a victor. BULLA GRAFT and REGGIE DAVIS each scored two first-half touchdown runs and JACK ALLRED hauled in a pass for GRIFF SEAMAN just before the halftime gun to make it a 34-7 game at intermission.
The Panthers (4-6, 0-4 CL) were held to just 25 yards on 16 carries and also threw three interceptions to seal their fate in front of the biggest crowd Bishops had seen all season.
A.J. BRITANICO took a handoff at the beginning of the second half and raced 80 yards for a touchdown. CHRIS ALLEYNE added a 34-yard field goal and JAMES NELSON would find his way into the end zone late from 2 yards out for the games final score.
Panthers’ quarterback JOSH GAUDET threw two touchdown passes on the night. The first to RB JAMAL LEWIS for an 11-yd score and the latter to ANTHONY OSEGUERA on a 13-yard pitch-and-catch.
“They executed offensively with whatever they wanted to do,” said Horizon head coach LAMONT BUTLER. “Graft ran hard and Britanico is really good too. They just forced us into turnover after turnover and the game got away from us.”
CHRISTIAN 62, LA JOLLA COUNTRY DAY 9 – The Patriots of Christian finished the regular season as the top scoring team in the San Diego Section with 474 points in a 9-1 season.
“We did that despite playing with nine running clocks,” said Christian offensive coordinator DAVID BEEZER.
Six times Christian scored 49 points or more, including 62 vs. La Jolla Country Day in Friday’s (Nov. 8) non-league finale. The Patriots figure to earn a No. 2 berth in the San Diego CIF playoffs.
TREVOR HOWELL snared seven passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots romp over the Torreys.
In the third quarter, ZANE COFFMAN busted up the middle and went untouched for a 60-yard touchdown run.
Also in the third, Christian sophomore quarterback DAVID TODD JEREMIAH fired a quick-hitter to a slashing TREVOR HOWELL around the left hash that turned into a 50-yard score, as Howell juggled the pass momentarily before gathering it in and racing in to the end zone.
