Agoura Hills, CA – The Southern California High School Football Season has kicked off with a long drawn out 35-12 victory for Calabasas over Dorsey at Agoura High School on Thursday night.
As always the talent on field always finds a way to rise to the top. Calabasas has a nice trio of weapons for sophomore quarterback Jaden Casey to distribute the football too.
Even with over 200 yards in penalties between both teams you could see the stars. The refs continued to allow the game to have no rhythm while everybody knocked off the rust.
Casey opened the game with 39 yard touchdown to 6’4 receiver Johnny Wilson, who had seven catches for 126 yards Mossing defenders.
On the other side receiver Mycah Pittman took screen passes for big yards with nine catches for 135 yards.
“The DB’s were playing off the ball, so we hit em with some quick screens,” said Pittman “Our team came out tonight and made a statement.”
Dorsey was able to keep game close in first quarter scoring on 98-yard punt return by Dion Bascom right in front of Calabasas bench. This special teams touchdown showed that Dorsey has some explosive players, who can really go.
Once the dust settled Calabasas had scored 21 unanswered points to finish off the half leading 28-6.
In the fourth quarter Dorsey showed some life when sophomore reserve running back JoJuan Collins took a handoff 86 yards in a foot race for their last touchdown of the game.
Dorsey head coach Charles Mincy Sr will also remind his team how they stalled the Coyote offensive in second half coming up two fourth down stops to get the ball back.
Dorsey will host Serra next week Friday September 8, Calabasa will play next Friday September 1, at Salesian at 7pm.
