Cerritos' Crowder rushes for seven touchdowns
CERRITOS – Darin Owens didn't have any trouble digging into his playbook Friday night.
The Dons coach didn't have to, what with the way LaMarr Crowder and Cerritos ran the ball.
Crowder, a senior running back, ran for 333 yards and seven touchdowns on 24 carries as the Cerritos backfield bowled over Ocean View en route to a 62-28 nonleague victory at Gahr High.
“It feels great,” Crowder said. “We made adjustments. We came in here with a goal and wanted to play as a team. We had a bad game last week, but tonight we were focused.”
On Cerritos' third play from scrimmage, Crowder took control. Taking a handoff at the Dons' 40-yard line, the back eluded a swarm of Seahawks defenders before racing down the right sideline and into the end zone.
From there, Crowder and Co. didn't let up.
Crowder had additional touchdown runs of 18, 10, 66 and 28 yards and racked up 211 rushing yards — all in the first half.
On the final run of the second quarter, Crowder showcased a series of jukes as he pushed past seven defenders for a 28-yard score that gave Cerritos a 34-14 advantage.
The Dons (1-2) didn't pass once during the game, running on all 44 plays from scrimmage.
Crowder added scoring runs of 15 and 53 yards in the second half, and quarterback Ki' Jon Washington had seven carries for 90yards and a score.
Ocean View sophomore quarterback Blake Meyer threw for 293 yards and four touchdowns, and Tyler Clay hauled in four catches for 212 yards and three touchdowns for the Seahawks (0-3).
