Steele 38
East Central 10

EAST CENTRAL -- It may have resulted in a loss, but the East Central Hornets put up a good fight against the Steele Knights during their District 28-5A game last Friday.

No team has held the state-ranked Knights to less than 45 points all year, but the Hornet defense did exactly that. Steele quarterback L.G. Williams was held to 64 yards of passing offense on 4 of 10 attempts. He was intercepted once. Justin Stockton also had another good game for the Knights, but the Hornet defense did its best to slow him down, allowing 118 yards on 15 carries.

Williams and Stockton scored the first two touchdowns of the game on runs of 6 yards and 3 yards, respectively. Both extra-point kicks were good, and Steele led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.

With 4:38 to play in the first half, the Hornets got on the board with a 21-yard field goal from Dennis Chavez. The Knights responded with a touchdown in the final minute of the half, though, as Stockton ran in from a yard out. At halftime, the score was 21-3 in favor of Steele.

The Knights tacked on a field goal early in the third quarter, and then got 6 more points on a 4-yard passing touchdown from Williams to Matthew Moen. The kick was good, and the score was 31-3 near the end of the third quarter.

The Hornets scored their lone touchdown of the night on a 1-yard run from Johnathan Jackson with 8:34 to play in the game. The point-after kick was good, and the score was 31-10.

The Knights quickly responded, though, taking just 37 seconds off the game clock en route to a Bryson Denley touchdown. The extra point made the final score 38-10 in favor of the Knights.

Offensively, Jeremy Jones completed 7 of 18 passes for 93 yards in his return to the field. He also ran nine times for another 32 paces. Kyle Lamey had three catches for 52 yards, Jackson had a grab for 23 steps, and Russell Brown hauled in a pass for 15 yards. Wanya Ward had two catches for 3 yards.

Jackson led the Hornet running game with 121 yards on 23 carries. Jones ran for 32 yards, Roy Mora had 6 yards on three carries, and Caid Franckowiak picked up 3 yards on two carries.

The loss drops the Hornets to 3-5 on the year, and the team is 1-2 in district play. East Central will play at South San this Friday. The Bobcats are 2-6 on the season, and 0-3 in district play. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
