USA TODAY High School Sports Super 25 No. 6 St. John Bosco cruised to its second one-sided victory in as many weeks by walking all over Norwalk, 67-7. in Long Beach on Friday.
The Braves cruised to a 31-0 lead after the first period and never looked back, getting pairs of touchdowns from Demetrious Flowers and Sean McGrew, not to mention a truly ridiculous first quarter stat line from Bosco quarterback Quentin Davis: 12-14, 185 yards, 2 TDs. 3 rushes for 48 yards and 2 more TDs.

Yes, you read those stats correctly. Davis accounted for all four of Bosco’s touchdowns in the first quarter as the Braves built up a 32-0 lead. The Braves took their foot off the gas, but could only slow the team’s scoring so much. Eventually Norwalk got on the board, but not before it was down 67-0. The late Norwalk touchdown broke a stretch of 143 unanswered points by Bosco to start the season.
That such a streak ended may actually be a positive for Bosco as it enters more trying stretches of the schedule without the scoreless streak lingering like an anchor around the team’s neck.
Friday’s blowout comes on the first day of two big ones for the Bosco program. Josh Rosen, a superstar prospect who led the Braves in 2013 and 2014, will start his first collegiate game under center at UCLA on Saturday. If he is half as successful as his former teammates Bosco and Bruins fans will have plenty to celebrate.
