Sports: Bosco Football Dominant In Victory Over Alemany
by Aeden Alexander, Sports Editor
The Bosco Braves cruise to an easy victory over top-ranked in-state power Alemany, as they continue their national title run while making headlines along the way.
St. John Bosco came off a hot first win over nationally ranked Miami Central in their previous game and looked to win another game against a top-ranked school in California. Bosco’s opponent this time was Alemany, who was ranked very highly and looked forward to putting on a show on the big stage.
Alemany was given the first opportunity to score, meanwhile Bosco’s defense was not slowing down. They were coming off a dominant performance in the previous game and continued to show Alemany how defense wins games and, ultimately, championships.
Bosco quickly gained possession of the football and sought to score and start the game with a bang. But that didn’t scare Alemany, as they were able to somewhat contain the Braves’ offense, limiting them to just a field goal in their first drive.
Bosco’s defense made quick work of Alemany’s offense and regained the ball with ease. The Braves’ offense was able to put together an impressive drive scoring their first rushing touchdown of the game, making their lead to start the game 10-0.
Alemany finally got the ball rolling on their next drive marching down the field. The run was working well, and in addition, their quarterback made some major completions. The drive finished off with them kicking a field goal for what would be their only points of the game.
The Braves’ offense quickly responded with an impressive drive that was capped with a long pass for about 45 yards to the end zone, advancing the score to 17-3.
With a demanding lead, Alemany needed to start finding ways to score, but Bosco’s defense proved too dominant, forcing them to return possession.
The Braves’ returned with an even more impressive drive than the last, showing off their abilities to both run and pass the ball. The audience watched as almost a 90-yard drive ended with an impressive receiving touchdown, putting the Brave’s up 24-3.
For the rest of the game, both teams were able to put impressive drives together, but none resulted in either team scoring. The two teams battled and both defenses shut down one another down the stretch.
But the damage had already been done, as the Braves’ moved their record to 2-0 with a final score of 24-3.
Bosco will host the San Gabriel Valley’s best, Bishop Amat, next Friday night at 7:00 PM at Panish Family Stadium, as they look to improve and show another dominant performance. Tickets can be purchased here.
