An example of the type of execution/performance expected at DLS:
leading 28-0, DLS back fumbles after a significant gain and Servite recovers. one of the DLS coaches went ballistic, clearly screaming at the back as he trotted off the field. tirade continued well after the play.
this, while leading 28-0 and clearly in control of the game. LOVE IT.
If you want to play the what if game, at least go all out.
And you do seemed to be obsessed with homosexual acts for some reason which is adorable since you seem to be so well versed in your fantasies about them.
This is the same MOTTO that La Habra uses. Play the best to be the best. BUT, when they do it and lose,
they are told "You can't play with the BIG BOYS"? Well, we could also say that here with Servite. First Gorman
now Delassale. I will tell you, if you play Mission Viejo, they are on that De lassale level. I still think Servite will beat MD in a close game, but will get tore up vs Bosco. Don't underestimate J serra, they are a darkhorse to be weary of. Who will represent us VS D saalle in the state game?

I think Servite played terribly. They had the ball 3 times inside of the 10-yd and came away with zero. Early mistakes. Tony Brown replayed his BG game. The play calling was predictable and puzzling.
But credit where credit is due. DLS did its thing on offense and defense. Hats off to the better team. The kids came out of it feeling the same as I felt. They had a couple of chances to make it a game, but that's why DLS is DLS, they put an end to those chances, and that was that. I'm glad they aren't hanging their heads. Now their focus is solidly on MD, they've been preparing for this MD game for 2 weeks.
DLS execution was exceptional, particularly the line and play setup. Their offense was not that awe inspiring - are their receivers capable of catching a pass??

Servite lost because of mistakes and penalties, not because they were dominated by a grossly superior team. St. John Bosco would easily defeat the Spartan team I saw last night.
Last night's game was disappointing on a number of levels. But Servite handed the game over to DLS, not by design, but through numerous mistakes and lack of imagination in play calling. Someone said in an earlier post that the Friars would have to play flawlessly to win. They didn't play flawlessly and they lost.
I think they could have won, but we will never know. The DLS I saw last night was no where near the DLS I saw grind away an excellent, unprepared Servite team on that dismal rainy night at Home Depot stadium several years ago. I own machinery that pounds out steel shapes over and over again with exacting accuracy and with tons of impact. Bypass the safety devices and you lose a hand. That is how DLS played that night at Home Depot. That is not how DLS played the game last night. I disagree that DLS controlled last night's game throughout. I saw their running game stopped repeatedly by the Servite defense....their passing game is mediocre at best with overthrown and dropped balls the rule rather than the exception....they fumbled the ball four to five times, being lucky to recover several of them....
The Friars seem limited in their offensive playcalling and formations. Why would you not call for a quarterback keep in a power drive over the middle when the ball is 12" away from a first down in the red zone?
Nope.....give it to the little guy and try to sweep around the side.
Let's be kind and call last night's game a series of learning moments.
