Alemany Beats Crespi 34-7, Wins Serra League Title

Warriors Handle Business, Win Title

The Alemany Warriors defeated the Crespi Celts 34-7 to capture a share of the Serra League crown in front of a raucous crowd on Senior Night in Mission Hills.

Alemany took control of the game from the outset. After the Warriors defense forced an interception, junior running back Dominic Davis broke loose for a long touchdown run to give Alemany an early 7-0 advantage.

The Warriors defense, led by the stellar play of junior defensive end Tyree Thompson, bottled up the Crespi offense for the entire first half. Thompson was making plays in the Crespi backfield all night, supplying constant pressure on the quarterback and providing premium run support.
