OSG High: Long Beach Poly's 90-Point Win Could Have Been Worse..???

((HT: Cam Smith/USA Today))

Cam, an FOSG, had this story in his byline and it shocked us a whole lot...

Not that Long Beach Poly won a game Friday night against Compton, but the sheer margin of it...

99-9 and that after Compton actually had a 6-0 lead.

Here's the highlights-presumably not all of them...
((HT: Long Beach Gazette))

Poly led 35-6 after the first quarter, 63-9 at halftime and then added 26 points in the second half- playing four quarterbacks and a lot of bench guys in general.

From Eric Sondheimer's piece in the LA Times, it just got...bad...

Poly Coach Antonio Pierce said he played four quarterbacks, plus lots of freshmen and pulled starters after the first quarter.

"To be honest, I was shocked," he said. "It was to the point kids wouldn't tackle."

Compton head coach Elijah Asante was realistic about it, though:
Amazingly so, really...

"I have to bring their spirits back up," Asante said. "For me, it's no big deal. We lost a football game real bad. We have to go in the weight room. We have to run and I have to somehow get to the kids and let them know, 'It's OK. It's just a loss. We have to get back up and this is where we show our character.'"

Anyone know how the HQ can get some Compton gear...???
