Despite being located only about five miles from each other, Taft and Crespi high schools have not met in football since 1977.
The Toreadors might want to wait another decade before they try it again.
Crespi, behind a bruising defense and a typically impressive running attack, easily won, 44-0, Saturday night at Taft.
As rivalries go, the matchup wasn't exactly UCLA-USC. It was more like Oklahoma-Tulsa.
The Celts (3-0-1) scored on six of their first seven possessions. Russell White, who scored on a 29-yard run to cap Crespi's first drive, also scored to open the second quarter, this from 14 yards out on a scamper that covered most of the field.
White, who finished with 142 yards and 3 touchdowns on 18 carries, took the handoff on a sweep to the left side, cut back into the middle of the field and capped the run with a dive into the end zone.
