The back of a Serra t-shirt read, “Leave No Doubt.” By halftime there was no doubt about the outcome of Serra’s game against Narbonne. The scoreboard read 34-0, and Serra had dominated in every aspect of the game.

Serra wide receiver Marqise Lee put on a Lynn Swann type performance, catching touchdown passes of 34, 80, 38, and 26 yards. He put Serra on the scoreboard first with a 34-yard touchdown catch in the endzone, and caught a bomb in the second quarter, where he simply outran a Narbonne defender to the endzone after the catch for an 80 yard touchdown.

Lee finished with five receptions for 191 yards. His most impressive score was just before halftime, when he out jumped two defenders in the endzone to catch a 37-yard touchdown.

An excited ball boy yelled out “How did he do that?”

As great as Lee was, he was not the only bright spot. George Farmer returned a punt for 60-yards in the second quarter, before leaving the game with a concussion. Running back Shaq Richard rushed for 141 yards and had a 22-yard touchdown run.

Serra’s offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage, giving quarterback Conner Preston all day to find an open receiver. At times Preston was able to stand in the pocket for multiple seconds without a Narbonne defender near him. That allowed him to wait for his wide receivers to come open.

Serra also dominated on defense, giving up only 47 yards to Narbonne in the first half. Serra’s speed on defense was too much for Narbonne. Serra pressured the quarterback all night, and when a Narbonne receiver caught a pass, he was immediately tackled. Narbonne was unable to advance the ball past the 50-yard line in the first half.

Narbonne showed heart in the second half, but the game was already decided, as Serra went on to win 48-22.

Narbonne was supposed to be able to match Serra’s speed, but Serra ran past them like they have all of their opponents. There is truly something special going on at Serra.
