Castlemont wins Silver Bowl

Just wanted to give a quick recap and a congratulations to Castlemont for its victory today over Fremont in the Lou Jones Silver Bowl. The Knights won 13-0, getting another strong outing from its defense. Castlemont allowed just 113 yards and became the second team — along with Pittsburg — to shut out the Tigers this year. QB Jakari Johnson threw a 20-yard TD pass to Tyrone Radford and Robert Krebs recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for the Knights’ two scores. Congrats again to Coach James Barnes and his players and staff. Also, congrats are in order for Fremont, which rebounded from last year’s 1-9 season to go 9-3 this year. Castlemont finishes a strong campaign with a 9-2-1 record.
