#6 Long Beach Poly upends #7 Narbonne in SoCal showdown

Long Beach Poly

5-star prospect Malik Henry is waiting in the wings to take-over the Long Beach Poly offense, but Nolan McDonald, who was the starter before Henry appeared on-campus, showed Thursday night that he’s extremely capable of running the Jackrabbits’ offense.

McDonald passed for 140 yards and ran for 76, including the game-winner with 22 seconds left to give Poly, ranked #6 in the latest High School Football America/SoCal Top 25, a 20-17 win over Narbonne (0-1), ranked #7 in our SoCal Top 25.  The game featured six lead changes.

Poly, which improves to 2-0, faces nationally-ranked Bishop Gorman from Nevada in two weeks.

Watch McDonald’s scramble for the win below with post-game sound from Poly head coach Antonio Pierce and Narbonne head coach Manuel Douglas.
