SD Prep Football Preview: San Diego @ Kearny


San Diego Cavers Kearny Komets 
(October 21, 2011)

Last Meeting: 
11/15/10 Kearny 39 @ San Diego 38 (OT)

During the opening minutes of a league game at Morse two weeks ago, The San Diego Cavers’ 2011 season took an unfortunate turn. Senior quarterback and team captain Khari Kimbrough suffered a season ending compound fracture to his left leg and the game would end up being postponed. The Cavers went into their much needed bye the following week. With uncertainty at the quarterback position, the Cavers will now have the task of visiting a high scoring Kearny team that’s fresh off a road win over Coronado. The Komets have been victorious against San Diego three of the last four times they played and are currently sitting on top of the Central League standings with a perfect 3-0 league record.

My Prediction:

While San Diego tries to adjust to a new starter at quarterback, Kearny will still have their senior playmaker Shawn Boose who will more then likely put up big numbers with his AFL style passing attack. On the bright side, the Cavers had an extra week to prepare their defense for Boose and their offense for life without Khari Kimbrough. I’m not sure if two week without a full game will hurt or help the Cavers but I do believe that Kearny’s momentum going into this game will hurt them.
Kearny 35 San Diego 21
