Harbor City, CA – Narbonne was in the red zone looking to slam the door on San Pedro when they called Jermar Jefferson number again. Jefferson didn’t disappoint by going in on for his fourth of game making the score 34-14 in 3rd quarter 8:05 on clock.
Narbonne played a complete game defeating San Pedro 48-14 after a first round bye in the Open Division for the Los Angeles City Section playoffs.
Jefferson wasted no time letting San Pedro know that he was going to be running down hill all game long. He scored his first of four touchdowns on 8 yard run to take first lead 7-0 with 9:12 in 1st quarter.
“It just felt great to me, the O-Line opening up holes for me,” said Jefferson, “We looking to go to State and win.”
San Pedro game plan was no secret feed the ball to Sean Davenport who played the most complete game you could on the losing end. Pedro gave the ball to Davenport 34 times where he rushed for 118 yards and caught a hand full of passes.
Narbonne lead by senior quarterback Jalen Chatman who threw for 289 yards and two touchdowns to complement the running game.
If the Gauchos want to back up Jefferson words and go to State Chatman will have to eliminate the turnovers and make the smart play.
The two interceptions by Chatman led only to 7 points for San Pedro in the game but in the next rounds they could be more costly.
These two marine league foes always seem to slug it out twice a season. The results was the same but San Pedro led by coach Corey Miller had his guys ready to play.
Narbonne offensive line led by left tackle Jonah Tauanu’u who kept going to make blocks on the second level. When you have that type of weapon it really helps the scoreboard move.
Now No. 1 seed Narbonne will host No. 4 seed Fairfax next and on the other side of the bracket No. 2 Crenshaw will host No. 3 Carson.
