Calvary Christian Royal Knights 38, Ocean View Patriots 0
The action was intense and the weather was perfect as the undefeated Calvary Christian Royal Knights rode into Oceanview and bagged a victory against the Ocean View Patriots.
It was a big day for Calvary Christian running back Josiah Carlos in both offense and defense, as the senior back would evade tacklers and slip away for a 52-yard touchdown. He would provide the punishment on defense as well, dropping the opposing quarterback twice for sacks.
A shovel pass to Carlos would make the score 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, but the Royal Knights’ defense got in on the fun during the second quarter with a safety to increase their lead.
Quarterback Malachi Chapman would throw not just one, but two touchdown passes to his younger brother Michael Chapman in the second quarter, showing that the bond between brothers was strong even on the field while making the score 32-0 with their efforts.
Ocean View wouldn’t allow the Royal Knights to crusade on their home turf without a fight, as senior running back and captain Jonathan Landis took a kickoff and nearly took it to the house. Landis would lead his team in the running attack, valiantly standing against the charging Royal Knight defense.
The plucky Patriots would stand against the Royal Knights, as Ricardo Duran lead the defense to hold Calvary Christian (4-0) to only a single second-half touchdown. The touchdown was scored in the third quarter when the elder Chapman took a quarterback draw to the end zone for a score.
The Patriots failed to get on the board on two occasions, as a faulty snap caused the kicker to hook a kick wide left, while a second field goal attempt came up short despite a solid boot covering a fair amount of distance. Calvary Christian would hold the fort in the end and leave Oceanview with a 38-0 win.
Oceanview (0-3) will look to earn their first victory next week against Horizon Prep Lions (1-1).
Calvary Christian will look to continue their winning ways against the Rock Academy Crusaders (0-2).

PREVIEW: The Calvary Christian Royal Knights (2-0) attempt to seize victory against the Oceanview Patriots (0-1), as the PPR is back for more gridiron action in Week 4 of the high school football season.
Calvary Christian has been dominant on the offensive side of the ball, blowing out Rock Hill Academy, 57-28, and proceeded to outslug Victory Christian Academy, 42-40.
Head coach Gene Rheam has led his squad well in their return to the field.
After not fielding a team at all in 2016, quarterback Malachi Chapman and receiver Aaron Sanchez have helped this team gel and approach a better record than their 2016 season.
After going 3-7 in 2016, the Royal Knights are looking new and improved, but the defense is one area they look to improve.
Oceanview is currently still very young at many positions.
The 5-4 team from last year saw five seniors graduate, but center Felix Valdez has returned to anchor the offensive line. Freshman quarterback Tony Valdez started the blowout game against Julian, completing two passes.
What should be a reliable source of offense is kicker Diego Orozco, as head coach Ron Loewenthal has stated that he could go on to kick for a college team.
The Patriots cannot rely solely on their kicker, however, and things could go south if the Royal Knights offense starts to lord over the Patriots’ defense.
