The Sea Kings routed Inglewood, 44-13, Friday night at Coleman Stadium, and appear ready to face what looks to be an extremely deep league. “It’s awesome to roll into league with a big win like this,” Fresch said. “It sets a tone for the whole season. We are starting to gel on offense and the defense has played extremely well the last couple of weeks. “Every game in the Bay League is like a heavyweight challenge.” Palos Verdes (3-1-1) dominated throughout, controlling the point of attack on both sides of the ball. Its defense, which forced four turnovers and registered five quarterback sacks, never allowed Inglewood’s offense to get into any kind of rhythm. Palos Verdes grabbed control of the game early, jumping to a 17-0 lead early in the second quarter. The Sea Kings moved the ball with ease, led by running back Robert Gregorio and a stout offensive line. Gregorio accumulated 63 of his 159 rushing yards in the first quarter alone as the Sea Kings held the ball for almost the entire quarter. After allowing an Inglewood score midway through the second quarter, Palos Verdes answered with a touchdown right before half and then added three touchdowns to put the game out of reach, 43-6. Inglewood running back David Freeman had 112 yards rushing and a touchdown on 13 carries, but most of that came in the fourth quarter. He had little room to move for much of the contest. Quarterback Marc Venning managed the game well for the Sea Kings, completing 9 of 15 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown. Venning hit tight end James Klein for a 23-yard gain on fourth-and-1 from Inglewood’s 33-yard line early in the game to set up Kevin Morgan’s 26-yard field goal. With two more rushing touchdowns, Gregorio continued his scoring assault. The senior running back notched Palos Verdes’ first touchdown of the game on a 15-yard run late in the first quarter to give the Sea Kings a 10-0 lead. He scored another touchdown on a 3-yard run in third quarter. Gregorio hopes the Sea Kings’ impressive play can continue into next week’s Bay League-opening contest against Leuzinger. “This win gives us a lot of momentum heading into next week,” Gregorio said. “We got off to a slow start this year, but we have really stepped up the last couple of weeks. Our old coach used to say, `If you believe, you belong.’ That’s the attitude we are taking with us every week.” With the loss, Inglewood fell to 2-3. It will face Culver City (5-0) to open Ocean League play next week. Inglewood likely will need to rely on backup quarterback Marlon Johnson for the next couple of weeks as starting quarterback Quincy Durgin left the game in the first quarter with a sprained ankle.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
