Carson 30, Gardena 12
Bo Napolean completed only five passes, but three went for touchdowns as the grieving junior quarterback led the Colts past previously unbeaten Gardena Saturday afternoon at Carson.
Napolean, whose maternal grandfather died of heart disease last week, left the field immediately afterward with his father, Carson quarterback Coach Kevin Napolean, to attend a funeral service that had begun earlier in the day.
"We decided that his grandfather would've wanted him to play," said Kevin Napoleon.
The quarterback finished five of 12 passing for 47 yards with one interception, but he threw scoring passes of 13 and 4 yards to Jordan Fata to give the Colts (5-3, 3-0) a 14-0 lead after the first quarter.
Carson, which has won the past four consecutive Marine League titles, otherwise took the inside track to another championship with its defense.
Gardena (7-1, 2-1), contending for its first league title since 1974, struggled on offense and special teams, lending Carson excellent field position all day.
The Panthers' Chris Green, who entered the game with 1,104 yards, was limited to 39 yards in 16 carries. Senior quarterback Milo Otis was the most effective rusher for Gardena with 106 yards and both scores in 12 carries.Carson intercepted two passes by Otis. One was returned 57 yards for a touchdown by Chet Sanders, who has intercepted four passes in three games since returning from knee surgery.
Gardena's Nate Ness intercepted two passes, but was taken by ambulance to Kaiser Permanente Hospital after suffering a neck injury in the second quarter.
Ness was sore but expected to make a full recovery and be released from the hospital after undergoing precautionary X-rays and tests Saturday night, according to Gardena assistant principal Ed Johnson.
