Dominguez 30, Lynwood 27
There's nothing fancy about the Compton Dominguez offense. The Dons cluster together in their double wing-T formation -- football's version of a scrum in rugby -- and dare the other team to stop their relentless running game.
Lynwood wasn't up to the task.
Dominguez, ranked No. 20 in the Southland by The Times, overpowered the Knights when it counted Friday en route to a victory in a game between previously unbeaten teams at Lynwood Middle School.
Sam Hopkins rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns in 23 carries. His six-yard scoring run on fourth and goal with 1:14 to play gave Dominguez a 30-21 lead and capped a 13-play, 58-yard drive that sealed Lynwood's fate.
"I felt I was unstoppable," said Hopkins, a senior who also scored on runs of seven and 20 yards. "I just told the coach to give me the ball, and I made it happen."
Hopkins had plenty of help. Darryl Crummie gained 76 yards in 12 carries and scored on a 10-yard run. Dion Bell rushed for 67 yards in 13 carries and set up a touchdown drive with an interception. And the Dons' massive offensive line opened holes all night.
Dominguez (7-0, 2-0) extended its winning streak over Lynwood to 11 games. The Knights have not beaten the Dons since 1992.
Lynwood (5-1-1, 1-1) trailed, 23-21, after a 15-yard scoring pass from Ashlee Palmer to Ellis Powers with 7:05 to play. The Knights made the final score close on another Palmer scoring pass with four seconds left.
Marlin Simmons, Lynwood's defensive leader at linebacker, led the Knights with 74 yards rushing in only three carries.
