Corona del Mar defeated Downey Warren in a shootout

Two unexpected things happened at the start of the CIF Southern Section 2 playoffs between Corona del Mar and Downey Warren.

First, the Sea Kings scored in the opening race, which was the first time Warren had lost an entire season.

Second, Warren’s quarterback Nikolay Yamalev hit hard in the middle of the first quarter, leaving him one side of the ball as the coaches corrected his injury when the Bears climbed eight.

Yamaleva entered the game again for the series, but clearly was not himself. The six-foot-six five-star recruit walked back to the side and sat down alone before his father came over to comfort him.

Despite the fact that Warren missed his star and Corona del Mar had to adapt to a different style of play, the Bears and Sea Kings went blow after blow, which was highlighted for centuries by the streak of the fourth quarter.

Corona del Mar struck the decisive blow of the game when quarterback David Rasor, fourth and 18th from the 36-yard line, passed a pass to Cooper Hoch, who was snapped up by Warren’s two defenders. Hoh pulled the ball into a touchdown, giving the Sea Kings a 42-35 lead with a 1:08 lead.

Warren added another touchdown in the first quarter to his lead with an 18-yard run from Marcus Higgs from 3:59 to the end of the quarter, going 15-7 ahead.

Backward-running junior Romeo Clarke interrupted 65 yards to give the Bears a 22-14 lead from 5:52 to the end of the first half.
