Mayfair football routs Norwalk to keep league title streak going – Press Telegram

Norwalk – Mayfair’s quarterback Evan Tomitch and Running Nick Adimora’s dynamic duo, Norwalk 48-7 on Friday night as Monsoon won the Suburban League Championship five times in a row and maintained an undefeated season. Recorded 5 touchdowns on the route.

With the monsoon (8-0, 3-0) this looked easy. Mayfair immediately attacked when Tomitch threw a quick pass to Adimora, who bolted a 59-yard touchdown in the team’s first offensive play, after the defense came up with a force downstop in the first quarter. bottom.

That was all that Mayfair needed, but it wasn’t the only one. Tomić performed brilliantly, completing 13 of the 17 passes at 259 yards with two touchdowns, most of the damage happening in the first half.

He also showed off his speed and athletic performance by running 71 yards on four carries and recording two touchdowns.

Norwalk’s defenses sometimes seemed to try to dismiss Tomić, but he scrambled, avoided pressure and turned broken play into a positive yard.

Monsoon coach Derek Bedel appreciated Tomić’s play.

“Evan does some great play in run games, especially when protection is broken,” Bedel said. “We had to work on some pass protection this week, but overall (Tomić and Adimora) are really good together. It was a special night for them.”

Adimora’s agility and strength helped him spend a big night with a total of 181 yards of attacks and three touchdowns. He rushed 72 yards with just four carries, including an impressive 65-yard touchdown in the third quarter, with five receptions and touchdowns at 109 yards.

Bedel talked about Adimora’s vision as an important attribute that makes him such a dynamic player.

“He has very good eyesight,” Bedel said. “As a running back, good eyesight can reduce and bounce. He understands football in general, the overall aspect of the game. You make small tweaks in our attacks. He is a really good athlete when he can put the ball on the edge and inside. “

“I’ve said this for years, he’s the best (running back) I’ve ever taught,” Bedel continued.

Tomitch talked about why the monsoon was so effective against Lancer.

“Almost everything was working,” he said. “Give this guy (Adimora) the ball and put it in the end zone every time. Our deeper pass game worked a lot for us in this game, and our run game today It was a point. “

Adimora talked about how his early touchdown set the tone and why he and Tomić were a dynamic mix.

“It set the tone. I had to scream at the wide receiver that blocked me and took me to the end zone. I had to give momentum to move us.” Said Adimora. “I feel like I’m communicating well by lining up the same things as path blocking. Communication is the key.”

Norwalk (6-4, 2-2) and its unique double wing formation never caught Mayfair’s unpreparedness, and Lancer struggled to get into any kind of rhythm.

Their only glorious spot was repelling Jonathan Goodrow, who rushed 97 yards with 21 carries and touchdowns.

He was not happy with the team’s efforts to defeat.

“I think we came out really slowly, we weren’t really pushing,” he said. That’s why the score was what it was. “

The goal of Mayfair, where the fifth Suburban League Championship will be held, is to finish the regular season undefeated. Monsoon will face Bellflower next week in the final regular season match.
