October 20, 2013Serra used a balanced offense with a stifling defense to remain undefeated in the West Catholic Athletic League with a 28-7 victory over Valley Christian on Saturday in San Mateo.
The Padres scored the game's first four touchdowns to take an insurmountable 28-0 early in the fourth quarter. Valley Christian's offense was only able to total 133 total yards from scrimmage as their lone score came late in the final quarter.
Serra's defense has kept all three WCAL opponents in single digits even without their top defensive prospect, Matt Dickerson who is still nursing a back injury. The Padres committed all three turnovers in the game but was not hurt by them. The offense was run-oriented as Kava Cassidy netted 133 yards on 24 carries with a touchdown.
The Warriors were one dimensional with a run attack that was without Kirk Johnson. Junior Tre Mccloud filled in with 66 yards rushing on 23 carries. The defense kept things close early but was worn down as the offense had too many short drives that resulted in seven total punts.
Serra's win leaves only Archbishop Mitty and the Padres as the two undefeated teams in league play with a premature but possible regular season finale that could determine the league title. Another premature possibility is that Serra runs the table in the regular season and the postseason to set up a rematch with De La Salle. The Padres are poised to make a deep run in the postseason as the team is balanced enough to do so.
VC is staring at a three game losing streak as it faces Bellarmine next week. If the passing game does not keep opposing defenses honest, the Warriors will have to lean on the defense. Valley Christian looks to be a middle of the pack team in a very tough WCAL season.
