The Kearny Komets (3-6) escaped Week 10 with a victory over the Crawford Colts (3-6) with a final score of 19-7.
We arrived to Kearny high school in the beginning of the second half. The game was scoreless as we entered the stadium gates. It’s like Kearny and Crawford waited for the Prep Pigskin Report to film their touchdowns. That’s exactly what we did.
Kearny’s star of the game, Brenton Bell, executed a 53 yard QB keeper to put up the first 6 points of the ball game. Later in the 3rd quarter, Bell felt like sharing the love by passing to Treshaun Gray for a 38 yard touchdown, 12-0 Kearny.
Crawford was unwilling to stand aside and allow for unanswered points. The Colts managed to drive the ball downfield to Kearny’s 5 yard line. Kwali Purvis closed the margin by completing a 5 yard touchdown run, 12-7 Komets.
The Komets sealed their fate towards the end of the 4th quarter. Brenton Bell carried the ball for a total of 61 yards in a single drive. Bell ended the drive by scoring another touchdown thanks to a 9 yard QB keeper, 19-7 Komets.
Kearny heads into Week 11 preparing for the Coronado Islanders (7-1). Crawford will battle against the University City Centurions (4-5).
Week 9 of San Diego Prep football introduces a Div. 4 Central league game between the hosting Kearny Komets (2-6) and the Crawford Colts (3-5).
Both teams have experienced a rough year. Crawford’s first three games of the season resulted in a win streak. Unfortunately, it has been overshadowed by a long string of losses. I briefly spoke to one of Crawford’s coaches a few weeks ago about the program. The coach spoke proudly of his team of young men and touched upon challenges they face. After fighting through a few weeks of losses, it can be said that the Colts have a tremendous amount of heart. Yet, heart isn’t the only factor that wins games, but the Colts’ have that covered.
The Colt’s offense is led by Kwali Purvis. He has rushed for a total of 466 yards and will likely be Crawford’s main offensive weapon.
Kearny is recovering from a blow-out handed to them by the La Jolla Vikings. Although the Komets have not done very well against teams from lower divisions, they have performed well against the teams in their own league. Their last two league qualifying games ended in a loss by a margin of a single touchdown. The Komets can ensure they close that gap against Crawford by allowing running-back Brenton Bell or quarterback Kenyon Williams do their work.
Bell has rushed for 678 yards while Williams has passed for 986 yards.
