No. 6 St. John Bosco scores 56 points in winning CIF Open Division bowl

No. 6 St. John Bosco (Bellflower Calif.) scored the most points that De La Salle (Concord, Calif.) has allowed since at least 1979 in a 56-33 victory in the CIF state championship Open Division bowl.

Bosco finished 13-2 and closed the season with impressive victories against Corona Centennial, Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and De La Salle.

The Bosco offensive line led by Wyatt Davis was dominant in leading a rushing attack that posted 358 yards. Terrance Beasley ran for 150 yards and two scores. Re-Al Mitchell was 18-for-20 passing for 191 yards and two touchdowns.


De La Salle’s Kairee Robinson scored on a 60-yard TD run on the first series. Demetrious Flowers answered with a two-yard run to tie the score.

Beasley scored on a 6-yard run after a turnover and De La Salle then answered with a 1-yard run by Robinson and the score was 14-14.

Bosco scored on its next two possessions for a 28-14 lead on a 10-yard pass from Mitchell to Terrell Bynum and a 6-yard run by Flowers.


At halftime, it was 35-17 and then Bosco added another score with 7:45 left in the third quarter on a three-yard run by Beasley that capped a 12-play, 80-yard drive.


De La Salle (11-2) hit a field goal to trim the lead to 42-20 and then recovered an onside kick. That drive ended in a 43-yard TD catch by tight end Isaiah Foskey with 1:01 left in the third quarter.

Bosco was forced to punt and De La Salle got good field position, but then fumbled. The Braves turned that into a two-yard TD run by Flowers and the game was out of reach.
