Kurt Scoby scored five touchdowns and totaled 355 yards from the line of scrimmage to lead the Monrovia Wildcats to a 62-21 victory over the San Marino Titans, and a Rio Hondo League title, on Friday night at Titans Stadium.
In terms of numbers the victory is the Wildcats 32 consecutive RHL victory, their sixth straight league title, and gave them the first seed in the pending CIF playoffs as they seek a fourth consecutive championship.
San Marino struck first taking the opening drive and marching 68-yards on 11 plays capped by a Andrew Ferraco one yard plunge.
The Wildcats needed only three plays to tie the score. On third and long Deshawn Potts hit Scoby on a screen pass. Scoby found a seam, hit the jets and was gone 49-yards to glory.
The Titans retook the lead, but it didn’t last long.
Mr. Scoby was at it again. The senior running back found another crease in the San Marino defense and 74-yards later, the game was tied again, and essentially open the floodgates.
Monrovia got its first lead on a 29-yard run by Scoby.
The Wildcats touchdowns kept coming in the second half. Scoby took the kick off to start the second half and raced all the way down to the San Marino one. Darione Jones did the rest on the next play to put the Wildcats up 49-14.
Kameron Johnson did the rest of the damage for the Wildcats on touchdown runs of 18 and 69-yards respectively. Johnson carried the ball only five times but gained 113-yards on those five carries.
