Cal Strength bounced back in the best way it could.

Behind four turnovers and an electric day offensively, Cal Strength (4-1) answered an overtime loss a week ago with a 40-7 trouncing of Platinum on Saturday in Southern California during the Winner Circle Athletics Champions League regular season finale.

San Ramon Valley junior defensive back Za’Dorian Nardi began the evening with an interception on the opening drive – his first of two – and the rest was history after that.

Monte Vista senior running back Gavin Cribb ran in a 6-yard touchdown to put Cal Strength in the opening quarter. Two more Monte Vista players – junior quarterback Dyllan Devitt and junior tight end Jack Endries – connected on a 6-yard score to make it 12-0 midway through the second quarter.

But that was only the start.

Amador Valley sophomore defensive lineman Brady Nassar recovered a fumble in the end zone for six points, followed later by San Ramon Valley junior quarterback Jack Quigley finding Cole Boscia for a 3-yard score to end the half at 26-0.

One more Cribb touchdown run and Monte Vista linebacker Josh Zeising’s pick six ended the scoring, sealing what would become a 34-point victory ahead of the looming postseason.

Quigley, with a Division I offer from William & Mary in hand, completed 9 of 11 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown. It was his second game of 100-plus yards in the past three games, adding on to his 157 yards and three touchdowns in the third week of the year, which earned him West Coast Preps Athlete of the Week honors.

Quesada – Freedom’s leading receiver a year ago (853 yards, eight touchdowns) before moving to Pittsburg – brought in two passes for 89 yards, including an 81-yard grab down the sideline. 

Boscia was the No. 2 receiver on the day following his 33 yards. 

Endries was not far behind with 28 yards and a score on three receptions, giving him 128 yards over the past four contests. 

Cribb was Cal Strength’s leading rusher once again, carrying the ball six times for 40 yards and a score after he ran for 36 yards and a touchdown last week. Cribb currently holds an offer from George Fox.
