Crenshaw 37, Fremont 7
From the opening kickoff, returned 97 yards for a touchdown by Gardner McKay, Crenshaw displayed the kind of breakaway speed Friday night that distinguishes City Section football. The Cougars never let up in a 37-7 Coliseum League victory over previously unbeaten Fremont.
Crenshaw (5-1, 1-0) had faced a much tougher nonleague schedule than the Pathfinders (5-1, 0-1), and it showed. Linebacker Reggie Carter had three sacks to lead a Crenshaw defense that applied constant pressure to quarterback Carlos Lopez and limited Andre Bouvay, averaging 9.3 yards per carry, to 57 yards in 14 carries.
Tyquan Knox returned a kickoff 61 yards for a touchdown, and linebacker Solomon Elimimian tackled Bouvay in the end zone for a safety to give the Cougars a 15-0 lead less than five minutes into the game.
The one Fremont player who matched the Cougars in speed and skills was three-sport standout Danny Williams, who caught a 47-yard touchdown pass and finished with four receptions for 100 yards. He also recovered a fumble.
Carter has nine sacks on the season and is one of five Crenshaw defensive players who could be headed to NCAA Division I-A schools. Knox, a junior, showed speed at receiver, catching passes of 38 and 50 yards. And McKay had a 42-yard punt return for a touchdown, but it was nullified by a penalty.
