What has been a weakness for Kennedy High School became a strength Thursday night.
For the first time this season the Irish rushed for more than 100 yards as a team, gaining 206 yards in a 28-0 Garden Grove League victory over Garden Grove in front of 200 in Handel Stadium at Anaheim.
The yardage was divided among 10 players, including guard Rick Magallanes, who recovered an Irish fumble and gained three yards. David Rocchi was the leading rusher with 50 yards in 7 carries. He scored on a 29-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Ed Williams had 31 yards in 12 carries and scored his team's first touchdown on a one-yard run. Paul Garcia added 30 yards, all of which came on a third-quarter reverse play for a score that gave the Irish a 21-0 lead.
