Sports: Bosco Football Dominates JSerra in Homecoming Game, Takes On Orange Lutheran At Home Tonight
by Michael Barba
The Braves pulled off an impressive 31-0 win against JeSerra to move to 2-1 in Trinity League play, and look to put on another show for the fans tonight against the Orange Lutheran Lancers.
Last Friday, the Braves added a seventh win to their collection in the Homecoming game against the JSerra Lions. This imposing win places the Braves second in the Trinity League, second in California and fourth in the nation, with their only loss coming to the “Team in Red.”
Entering the contest, the Braves were confident considering all of the work that went into this match up. Defensively, the Braves were dominant with 84 tackles in total, and senior defensive back Jshawn Frausto-Ramos secured two interceptions – one he returned for a touchdown.
“Heading into game day I was very confident because it was our Homecoming game,” said Jshawn. “The reason our defense was so on point was because of our defensive coordinators getting us ready for the game.”
Despite the lopsided final score, the first quarter of the game was very competitive with a score of 3-0, the only points being scored by junior kicker Marcus Lee.
Going into the second quarter the game’s score was 10-0, with a promising start for the Braves. Within the first minute of the second quarter, senior quarterback Pierce Clarkson completed a four-yard passing touchdown to junior wide receiver Tommy Maher.
The third quarter began with the Braves ahead 17-0. Two minutes into the quarter, senior defensive back Jshawn Frausto-Ramos caught one of his two interceptions. In the last two minutes senior quarterback Pierce Clarkson completed a 22-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Israel Polk.
In the last quarter, the Braves sealed the deal with junior running back Cameron Jones completing a 13-yard rushing touchdown ending the game with a 31-0 win for the Braves
“It was a really productive week at practice. Coming off the loss to the “Team in Red,” we were energetic and excited to get back. We’re not where we want to be yet just because we do not want to peak that early. You know, we got playoffs coming up, so that is when we’re going to be at our best”, Israel said.
The Braves look sharper than ever heading into their match-up against Orange Lutheran. The game plan remains the same: go out and dominate.
“It’s going be the same thing as last week, like I said, we always go day in and day out and give it our all in practice, so it should be the same outcome. We don’t go into games underestimating anybody, but we do aim for blowouts and big wins,” said Israel.
The Braves are riding a 7-1 record while the Lancers are sporting a 6-2 record, which will be another competitive treat for the fans. This contest will take place at 7:00 pm at Bosco’s Panish Family Stadium.
