“As usual, our defense played outstanding,” Patterson assistant coach David Davis said. “The entire defense proved to be a true force.
“We needed them, because our offense was sputtering.”
Though the typically high-octane Patterson offense was a bit out of sync last weekend, there were positive signs of things to come as the season moves along, Davis said.
“We know that we have to play better, smarter ball to remain competitive,” he added.
Kendrick Bonds’ 15-yard touchdown run gave Patterson all the offense it would need.
“Whenever Ceres tried to drive together, our ‘D’ would shut them down,” Davis said. “As a unit, they all did their jobs.”
The rookie Redskins recorded a convincing 34-0 victory over Ceres.
“The parts were all in place. We looked like a well-oiled machine,” Patterson coach Bruce Foumai said. “The success of this team comes when opportunity meets with preparation.”
Helping out the defense and making a few plays of its own was a balanced offense, Foumai said.
“When we started the engine everything sounded nice,” Foumai added. “The passing game clicked, we put points on the scoreboard. The defense was also strong, and did its part.”
