Alemany Defeats St. Bonaventure 38-24, Improves to 5-0

Alemany Football Remains Undefeated

The Alemany Warriors topped the St. Bonaventure Seraphs 38-24 Friday night at home to remain undefeated.

The Warriors took the early lead with a 15-yard touchdown run by junior Dominic Davis. After an interception by junior Blake Green, quarterback Alif Grayes hit Davis on a screen that went the distance and increased the Alemany advantage to 14-0.

Despite the absence of Alabama commit and star quarterback Ricky Town and highly touted athlete Bryce Dixon, the Seraphs stormed back into the game behind the solid play of sophomore quarterback Darius Vines and playmaking junior receiver Lavan Alston.

Complete Game Highlights

Vines linked up with Alston for a 21-yard touchdown to get St. Bonaventure on the board. The Seraphs added the two-point try on a catch by Richard Lucero and trailed 14-8 early in the second quarter.

The Warriors were quick to respond with a big play. Star receiver Desean Holmes took the handoff from Grayes, rolled right and launched the ball deep down the field to senior Brandon Boyd for a 80-yard touchdown strike that extended the lead to 21-8.

St. Bonaventure cut into the deficit with a 4-yard touchdown toss from Vines to Diego Hinojosa. From there, the Seraphs defense stepped up and forced a safety to make it 21-17.

Vines connected a long touchdown strike with Alston to give the Seraphs their first lead of the game. After a standout performance against Corona Centennial at the Honor Bowl in Oceanside, Alston put forth another impressive outing, displaying his game breaking ability and wreaking havoc in the Warrior secondary. St. Bonaventure took a 24-21 advantage into halftime.

After a turnover and penalty filled first half, Alemany came out more energized and focused to start the third quarter. The Warriors marched down the field and capped off the opening drive with a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Okalani Langi to regain the lead 28-24.

The Alemany defense came up huge in the second half. With the Seraphs knocking on the doorstep for the go-ahead score, Langi recovered a fumble in the endzone to swing the game in the Warriors favor.

After Carlos Garrido added a field goal to give Alemany a 31-24 lead, the Warriors sealed the game when Grayes made a nice read and hit Davis for another touchdown. The Warriors defense held firm and prevented the Seraphs from forging another comeback.

Alemany improves to 5-0 and faces a tough road test at Norco before they began Mission League play. St. Bonaventure falls to 3-2 and has a quick turnaround as they host Westlake at Santa Barbara City College next Thursday.
