The biggest high school football game of the year—Mater Dei vs. St. John Bosco—turned out to be a defensive slugfest, a big change from their matchup last season, which ended in a 42-21 win for the Monarchs.
This time around, neither quarterback threw a single touchdown pass and heading into the fourth quarter, the game was a close battle.
Mater Dei got out in front, and needing a big play to put the Braves away, called on Sophomore running back Jordon Davison.
And he certainly answered.
Watch his 38-yard touchdown run to seal the deal for Mater Dei, winning by a score of 17-7.
Davison (5-foot-11, 210 pounds) finished the evening with 114 rushing yards on 22 carries. He’s a five-star recruit, ranked the No. 1 running back in the class of 2025. Davison already has 36 offers on the table from college programs.
Next up on the schedule, Mater Dei will visit 6-1 Orange Lutheran (Calif.) while St. John Bosco hosts 3-4 JSerra Catholic (Calif.).
