Kennedy powers its way past Magnolia

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

ANAHEIM - Alonzo Pineda rushed for 124 yards and scored three touchdowns, and Solomon Harris rushed for 101 yards as Kennedy earned its second win of the season by crushing Magnolia, 37-13, in a nonleague game Friday.

Kennedy’s passing game was also strong, as quarterback Christian Rodriguez passed for 119 yards.

The first quarter was the only time the game looked close. 

The Fighting Irish (2-2) scored a touchdown four minutes into the game, but the Sentinels fired right back with some impressive passes by quarterback Nathan Michel.

The Sentinels (0-4) shot from their own 22-yard line to the end zone in three plays.

Kennedy went back to work and had grabbed control of the game by halftime, 23-7. 

After the victory, Kennedy coach Sean Clark said he was looking to fix the few mistakes Kennedy made. Mainly a few “uncharacteristic” fouls that gave away many yards to the Sentinels.

“We did a good job, but we were undisciplined in the first quarter,” said Clark. “I’m happy to get the win, but we’re not as sharp as I wanted us to be.”

In the final minutes, Magnolia's Josh Barajas scooped up a fumble and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown.

Kennedy's Even Aldapa rushed for 55 yards.
