Jesuit bounces back against Davis

After dropping out of the Sacramento Bee ‘Top 20’ rankings, Jesuit High School’s football team beat Davis High School 42-26 on Saturday for Jesuit’s homecoming game.

The Marauders opened up with an interception in the corner of the end zone thrown by quarterback Calvin Brownholtz ‘17. The ball was tipped up by the intended receiver, wide receiver and cornerback Jayme Thomas ‘17.

The Jesuit defense was able to hold Davis to a three-and-out, and returned the punt to set up their next drive.

On the next drive Brownholtz threw a touchdown pass in the corner of the end zone to wide receiver Jonah Allman ‘16.

“It is difficult to open any game with an interception, so it was really good to be able to bounce back, and throw a touchdown pass on virtually the same play,” Calvin said.

Calvin continued the aerial attack with a touchdown pass to running back Beau Bisharat ‘16. Although later in the third quarter, Calvin threw another interception.

Stanford commit Beau Bisharat lead the game with 171 yards on 23 rushes and two rushing touchdowns. Along with Bisharat’s pair of rushing touchdowns, Lorenzo Burkes ‘18 punched in a one yard rushing touchdown.

The Marauder defense improved since its performance last week against Pleasant Grove High School Eagles, conceding 26 points to DHS after giving up 48 points to the Eagles the previous week.

“It was not our best defensive performance, but we were pleased with the growth that we displayed this week, from last week,” said cornerback and running back Jonathon Amadi ‘17, who had two tackles against the Blue Devils.

Jesuit (19) looks to keep momentum going with a win against Elk Grove High School (2) this Friday night at Elk Grove at 7:00 PM.
