Jabari Mann, Joseph Latu, Kyon Loud help lead the top-ranked Serra Padres to another decisive WCAL vitory
On Saturday, Serra rolled through another West Catholic Athletic League opponent, Bellarmine, scoring 27 points in the first quarter on its way to a 54-16 victory.
The victory was the San Mateo powerhouse’s 11th in a row in league play, all by double digits, and seventh in a row to begin the season, as the Padres appear to be in the fast lane, on their way to adding more championship banners to the school’s gymnasium.
On Saturday, Archbishop Riordan will be at home. Riordan is the WCAL’s only other unbeaten team.
Many of Serra’s key players assisted Bellarmine. Jabari Mann intercepted a punt and returned it for a touchdown. On a 54-yard run, Joseph Latu scored. Kyon Loud scored on a 14-yard touchdown reception.
Serra led at halftime 41-9 and after three quarters 48-16.
The Padres (7-0) have defeated their first four WCAL opponents this season by an average score of 51 to 8.
They’ll be heavily favored to win next week and advance through the Central Coast Section playoffs before being invited to play in the California Interscholastic Federation Open Division state championship game for the third year in a row.
Bellarmine fell to 1-6, 0-4 under first-year coach David Diaz-Infante.
Parker Threatt threw two touchdown passes for the Bells, one from 49 yards out to Zayne St. Laurent in the second quarter and another to Antonio Serrania in the third.
