The Bishop’s School Knights continue ride through their way to victory as they defeated the Patrick Henry Patriots 77-0.
Quarterback Jeffrey Jackson (Sr.) started the 1st quarter of the games with a bang! He ran the ball for 2 yards scoring the first touch down of the night. He ran the 2-point conversion giving the 8-0 to the Knights. Jeffrey continued the quarter with a 20-yard pass. The Jackson siblings proved to be in sync when Jeffrey threw a 43-yard pass that to Jacob Jackson (Jr.) that he would complete at the 2-yard line. The pass leads to a 2-yard pass touch down by Jacob extending the lead 14-0 Knights.
The 2nd quarter did not disappoint (the score 20-0 Knights) 8 minutes into the quarter Tyler Buchner (Sr.) rushed a 70-yard touch down. The score now at 26-0 Bishop’s! Towards the end of the quarter Tyler reappeared with 47-yard catch passed by Jeffrey Jackson 43-0 Knights. It became clear that the game would end in a blowout when the 3rd quarter ended 70-0 Knights.
Transfer Quarterback, from Mexico City, Ethan Gomez (Jr.) played his first game on San Diego soil. Unfortunately his debut started out a little rough. The scoreboard did not go in Ethan’s or the Patriots favor, the key players for Patrick Henry were able to complete small plays and gain a couple of yards, however it was not enough to get points on the scoreboard. The game ended with a final touch down by the Knights giving them the 77-0 win over the Patriots.
