RECAP: St. John Bosco 56, Garces Memorial 0
by Ethan Piechota
The St. John Bosco High School football team rolled over Garces Memorial High School last night in Bakersfield, CA by a final score of 56-0.
Two weeks. Zero points allowed by the number one team in the nation for high school football. The national championship run is a very real notion for the Braves this year, and they are off to a terrific start.
Similar to last week’s high-energy affair against Timpview, the Braves started quick and didn’t look back the rest of the way.
Garces Memorial managed just 10 yards of total offense against this stacked and hungry Bosco defense, which continues to show why it is one of the top units in the nation.
Junior safety Jake Newman and senior safety Titus Toler both recorded interceptions for the Braves, who forced three turnovers in total.
Not to be overlooked, Bosco’s offense led by five-star junior quarterback DJ Uiagalelei moved the football at ease for the second straight week, gaining 410 total yards as a unit.
Uiagalelei threw for three touchdowns and rushed for 72 yards, and running backs Keith Savage and George Holani scored two touchdowns apiece to lead the Braves high-powered and skilled unit.
Junior receiver Kris Hutson also had two touchdown catches for the Braves, as the points kept coming fast and furious for the squad.
After the game, both the players and coaching staffs from Garces and Bosco gathered for a memorable moment, a huddle on the field in prayer, something that can make all people feel good about the way this one went last night.
The Braves now improve to 2-0 on the year after two dominant performances to begin their national championship run. Still the number one team in the nation, Bosco will look to continue their success next week as they take on Mililani High School from Hawaii at Panish Family Stadium.
“The Tribe” will need to be loud and ready for this one, as the Braves will look to move to 3-0 on the season.
