CARSON (AP) — Brad Kaaya’s final performance as a high school quarterback was no different than what he’s done all season.
Kaaya, who committed to play at the University of Miami, threw for 276 yards and two touchdowns while leading Chaminade to a 41-9 win over Enterprise in the Division II CIF State Football Championship Bowl Game, Saturday night at the StubHub Center. Enterprise defeated Manteca last week.
Chaminade (14-2) had little trouble racking up the yards and the points against Enterprise, accumulating 332 in total offense.
Kaaya finished the season with 3,853 passing yards and 27 touchdowns.
The Hornets, on the other hand, were able to move the ball but couldn’t finish their drives. Their opening drive of the game went for 57 yards and resulted in a game-tying field goal but they weren’t able to add to their point total until 10 seconds remained in the game.
The Eagles opened broke the 3-3 tie five seconds into the second quarter when Kaaya hit Brayden Lenius with a 9-yard touchdown pass. Chaminade added a 9-yard touchdown run by Max Holden, before Donovan Lee returned an interception 20 yards for another touchdown, giving the Eagles a 24-3 halftime lead.
Enterprise (13-1) used a conservative approach on offense and was never able to make up the deficit. This was despite rolling up 305 yards in total offense. Isaiah Matthews led the Hornets with 182 rushing yards on 29 carries.
