Football: Chaminade gets confidence boost
Coaches don't normally settle for moral victories, but West Hills Chaminade Coach Ed Croson believes his team will be better after giving Gardena Serra a real scare before losing, 35-21, on Friday night.
"I don't think we knew if we could play with them," Croson said. "I think we're more confident as a program after the game than before."
Chaminade's offensive line, which has no seniors in the starting lineup, performed well, as did junior quarterback Logan Scott.
The only problem for the Eagles is that they couldn't solve dealing with Serra receiver George Farmer.
"He's right there with the best we've had and seen," Croson said of his days at City Section power Lake Balboa Birmingham. "He's a special guy."
Chaminade is 8-1 going into a regular-season finale against St. Paul and will be hoping for a rematch against Serra in the Western Division final.
