Priory hosts Pinewood to determine 8-man champion

Priory's football field becomes the staging area for the biggest high school game of the year on Friday at 3 p.m. as Panthers of all colors gather to determine the champion of the Mission Trails 8-man League.

Priory defeated host Anzar, 62-16, on Saturday and Pinewood downed visiting Riverdale Christian, 58-14, on Friday to set up a battle of unbeatens.

Pinewood's (5-1, 3-0) lone loss came in the second week of the season, a 69-34 setback at Villanova Prep in Ojai.

Since then, both Priory (6-0, 3-0) and Pinewood have pummeled their opponents, Priory by an average of 72.8-16 and Pinewood by an average of 55-23.5.

Both teams have excellent quarterbacks. Pinewood's Jaedan Bailey averages 126.2 passing yards a game and 162.4 total yards per game. Priory's Adrian LaValle averages 96.8 yards with 13 touchdowns and one interception.

Pinewood's Alex Dagman rushes for 89.8 yards a game while Priory's Keyshawn Ashford may be in a league of his own.

Ashford has collected 1,257 rushing yards, averaging 16.3 yards every time he takes a handoff. He's scored 28 rushing touchdowns and has rushed for over 100 yards in seven of the eight games to date.

Overall he averages 26.8 points per game. In addition to 28 rushing TDs, Ashford has returned two kickoffs, a punt and an interception for touchdowns. He's also converted five two-point conversations.

He's also the team's second-leading rusher and one of the top defensive players with 20 tackles.

Matt George leads the team with 37 tackles but eight others have at least 22 tackles, with Isaac Roybal and Muti Shuman each with 35 and Ashford with 33.
