According to local media, there is a major divide that goes down Crenshaw Boulevard, with two powerhouse programs residing on both sides. On the west side of Crenshaw, right off of Rodeo Road, is Dorsey High School, and on the east side of Crenshaw, right off of 52nd Street, is Crenshaw High School. Both schools have put numerous players into the college ranks and the NFL. Both schools come into this week’s game with identical records and athletes who have been ready for this game since middle school. Anticipate a large crowd involvement and a fight to the last play of the game on Friday night.
This Los Angeles rivalry was tight all the way through the game. Dorsey opened up a slight lead of 8-6 in the 1st quarter, but Crenshaw came right back early in the 2nd and took a 13-8 lead. But, once again, Dorsey took the lead again and roared in front. Just before the half, it was Dorsey 32, Crenshaw 13. Crenshaw came out of the halftime break ready to fight, though, and quickly came back to down just 32-27. From there, however, Dorsey remained strong, doing just enough to hold off the Cougar offense. They would go on to win 44-13.
