Monrovia Wildcats Pull Away Late
The Monrovia Wildcats put two touchdowns on the board in a three minute window in the fourth quarter to break a deadlocked game with the San Dimas Saints and take a 26-13 victory on Friday night.
The Wildcats (3-0) and Saints (0-4) were tied at 13 with 10:04 to play in the fourth when Kurt Scoby scored on a 16-yard run. Three minutes later, after M-Town’s Kameron Johnson recovered a San Dimas fumble at his team’s own 30, Scoby went the distance of a 70-yard run to ice the affair.
Scoby had 71 yards midway through the fourth quarter but finished with 188 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries.
Freshman Miles Bryant started at quarterback in place of the injured Deshawn Potts and made history in the process. Bryant is the first quarterback in Monrovia history to start as a freshman for the varsity. He completed two passes and both went for touchdowns. He only had seven attempts and also threw two interceptions. He threw a 20-yard strike to Crayvon Gillespie and a 72-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jacob Ramos.
The Wildcats defense came up with three stands in the red zone
“Avonte Moore and Alejandro Vega both had good games. It was a total team effort on defense,” said Monrovia HC Ryan Maddox about his defensive linemen
