No. 8 St. John Bosco pulls out deceptively competitive 34-0 win

By

The scoreline will say that it was all St. John Bosco, though some who were there will insist that the Braves were far less dominant than that score would indicate.

Regardless, by the end of four quarters, Super 25 No. 8 St. John Bosco had earned a second victory with a 34-o whitewash of SoCal rival La Mirada, setting up a major face off with No. 1 Bishop Gorman for the second time in three years. The win was the second consecutive shutout pitched by the Bosco defense, which could put them in good stead against Bishop Gorman’s hefty firepower next week.

Of course, the Braves will also need to get major contributions from their key offensive playmakers like running back Terrance Beasley and the team’s other stars on both sides with experience.

For Bosco, the good news now is that many of their stars weren’t a part of the Josh Rosen-led team that fell in Texas. Sometimes that lack of experience could be a critical advantage.
