BC High was able to push off the start of its game with Everett last weekend, but it was not able to avoid the beating that the Crimson Tide delivered, as Jakarrie Washington and Joey White led a 28-7 victory over the storied BC High program and the Everett defense held the Eagles to just 132 yards of total offense.
“We made some mistakes, shot ourselves in the foot a little with some penalties, but our offense had over 40 yards and our defense held them to (132) total yards,” explained head football coach John DiBiaso. “I think we could’ve scored more, if we had played a little better, but certainly we’re happy to have the win.”
The forecast for Friday night was for a cold, rain storm that might have helped BC High stop the Everett ground game, or at least slowed it down, but the Eagles decided to postpone the game to Saturday afternoon, when conditions had improved and the result was a rather predictable Everett win.
Running back Joey White got the scoring started in the second quarter, with a 13-yard rushing score, that was answered by a BC High 74-yard pass play a few minutes later. That pass play accounted for more than half of BC High’s total offense for the day, but the teams entered the break tied 7-7.
“Our offensive line played very well and our backs ran the ball well,” said DiBiaso.
In the second half, senior Jakarrie Washington scored twice on pass plays, including a 24-yard pass from Raheem Winguard in the third quarter and an 18-yard pass from Winguard in the fourth.
Marquis Holman rounded out the scoring in the fourth with a 17-yard rushing touchdown.
The Crimson Tide will now resume the league portion of their schedule, with an away game at Medford on Friday night.
The winless Mustangs will look to upset the Championship minded Tide, but BiBiaso said his team will be prepared against a letdown.
“It’s a league game, so we’re going to make sure that we don’t have a letdown,” said DiBiaso. “(Medford’s) record doesn’t matter, league record is what determines the league championship and that determines who gets in to the postseason. If we want to achieve our goals, our team is going to have to cone out prepared to play. It will be drilled into them all week.”
