LOS ANGELES-St. John Bosco shakes off the Las Vegas dust and walks all over Crenshaw, 65-7. They had a game plan of an aerial attack and that took over fast so Crenshaw didn’t gain confidence. Bosco had an easy 35-7 halftime lead, after going through a battle tested pre-nonconference schedule. This Crenshaw team is young and will have few stars emerge next year.
Ucla Bound quarterback Josh Rosen threw five touchdown passes in first half, making the correct reads. Bosco wide receiver Joey Chenoweth was one of his hot targets connecting on a 66 yard bomb, and 34 yard receiver screen both resulting in touchdowns. Rosen has been a great field general with backfield teammate running back Sean Mcgrew, who took a basic swing pass 42 yards for a score as well. Mcgrew didn’t even play running back in the second half of this contest. Backup running back Clifford Simms ran for two touchdowns in second half to continue their dominance.
Crenshaw young athletes didn’t back down from this challenge. Aundre Carter put the Cougars on the score board in the first half with a 44 yard touchdown catch to make score 14-7. They made a few plays behind Sophomore quarterback Daiyan Henley grinding out any yards he could. This youthful team will continue to grow as they move through league play. Head coach Robert Garrett never backs away from putting his teams against tough nonleague games. This had sharpen the Cougars in years past and should bold same results this year.
This game was back in a normal high school football game environment for Bosco and didn’t allow the lack of crowd intensity to slow them down. As soon as Crenshaw came out hitting hard and fast the Braves knew they need to turn it up. The starters and the reserves had an opportunity to sharpen their skills. Both teams will be tested next week. Crenshaw will travel to cross-town rival Dorsey for neighborhood bragging rights. While Bosco will host undefeated Mater Dei for big Friday night lights battle.
