Bosco wins playoff opener
NORWALK – St John Bosco’s quest for “back to back” state titles got off in the right direction with a resounding win over Cabrillo High School, 50-0 last Friday night. Bosco’s defense, which is full of first-year starters, had to grow up fast playing in the very tough Trinity League and it paid off in this opening round playoff game versus Cabrillo High.
The Braves defense looked battle-tested and their shut out performance was led by defensive end Jacob Collier’s two sacks and linebacker Dennis Willis’ nine solo tackles.
While the defense kept Cabrillo out of the end zone all night, Bosco’s high-powered offense put this game away early.
The Braves raced out to a 23-0 halftime lead and kept it going in the second half.
On the second play from scrimmage in the third quarter, QB Josh Rosen hooked up with Anselem Umeh on a 69-yard TD pass to make it 30-0 and Bosco was able to put it in cruise control from there.
The commanding lead allowed Bosco to rest most of their starters in the fourth quarter and set their minds toward round two of the playoffs.
With the win Bosco improved to (10-1) on the season.
The Braves play their second round playoff game tonight against Norco. Game time is 7:30pm at Norco High School.
