Football: Crenshaw's Hall plays through the pain
Wrong. Not only did Hall play, but he made several catches to help top-ranked Crenshaw post a 59-12 victory. Talented junior running back DeAnthony Thomas also returned from a sprained ankle that had sidelined him since the Cougars' season opener against Lakewood, scoring a touchdown and making several defensive plays.
Crenshaw (3-0) plays Riverside North (2-0) on Friday at Riverside King High. The Huskies have posted victories over Los Osos and Kaiser and could post a threat to the Cougars' bid to go unbeaten and gain a berth in a CIF state championship bowl game.
