The San Pedro Pirates head into this week’s rivalry matchup against the Narbonne Gauchos with a 3-3 record. The Pirates aim to push their Ws to the majority while the Gauchos, who are already on the plus side with a 4-3 record, hope that their five big name recruits help carry their team to victory.
Raymond Scott, Jermar Jefferson, Darien Butler, J.J. Tucker, and Jalen Chatman have the attention of big name schools like Oregon and USC which has made trouble for past opponents this season. This game often decides who the Marine League champions are, and with two close records, this is anyone’s game.

HALL OF FAME
Uchenna Nwosu started his career at Narbonne as a basketball player and actually wanted to quit football but Coach Douglas convinced him to keep playing. After starting only his senior year of high school, Uchenna went on to play 4 successful years at USC where he was an All American, team captain, and led the team in sacks as a senior. He was drafted last year in the second round to the Los Angeles Chargers and is not only seeing the field as a rookie, but logging sacks in the stat books.
The Narbonne Gauchos simply could not be stopped on Friday night, as they recorded a resounding 62-7 victory over the Pirates from San Pedro. Gauchos wide receiver Jack Brown took the snaps at running back due to injuries and made the most of his opportunity to get more snaps, finishing the night with 135 yards on ten carries.
Meanwhile, the Gauchos defense held firm, only allowing San Pedro to score seven points all evening. The win bumps Narbonne to 5-3 this season and drops San Pedro down to 3-4.
