Preview: Hoover Cardinals 20 at Serra Conquistadors 22

Yet another week in the books and yet another great set of games. My game was the Hoover Cardinals traveling to the Serra Conquistadors for a battle between two winless City League teams.

In the first half it was all the Cardinals behind the legs of Demontauz Grey and arm of Daevon Bazzo. Bazzo opened up the scoring with a 15 yard strike to Brendan Eliassant.  As for Grey, he was able to find the end zone on a short run up the middle, his 18th touchdown of the season.

Then out of halftime, the Conquistadors came out with a vengeance. Serra scoring quickly with 15 yard touchdown run from Bryan Pratt giving Serra the lead.

With less than five minutes left in the game, Hoover was able to score yet another touchdown to give them a 20-16 lead.

The Conquistadors then marched the ball down the field, giving them a shot to win the game with the ball of the five yard line and less than a minute on the clock. Junior quarterback Jack Radley was able to find senior Gabriel Bryan for what would be the game winning touchdown.

What went in seeming like a game with no fire power, this one sure left the fans pleased. On senior night, Serra was able to get their first win of the year and give the fans a reason to storm the field.

PREVIEW: We enter week 9 of the high school football season with a City League matchup between the Hoover Cardinals traveling to the Serra Conquistadors with both teams looking to finish their seasons off strong.

Hoover began the year fast out of the gates, winning their first two games—but since they have gone on a streak of losing five straight. The team is still led by running back Demontauz Grey. The junior has racked up an impressive total of 1,335 rushing yards (an average of 190.7 yards per game) to go along with his 17 touchdowns. Grey’s rushing numbers this year rank him 160th among running backs in the state of California.

On the other side, Serra has had a rough go to this season. They have been unable to break through in their first seven games. The Conquistadors will have their hands full with Grey running all over the field.

In order for Serra to keep this one close, they are going to have to slow down Grey and not allow him to get in the end zone.

This will be a game where both team’s defenses have to show up ready for the tough task of stopping each other’s offense. 

If you can’t make the game Friday night at 6:30, be sure to catch all the highlights 10:30 P.M on the PPR!
