But the star of the afternoon was Evans, who threw for 319 yards on 20 of 30.
He also ran for 63 yards on 12 attempts and accounted for all 7 CCSF
touchdowns. The Rams didn't punt
all afternoon. Three of Evans' TD
tosses went to 6-4 WR Princell Brockenbrough, who finished with 108 yards on 4
Things started well for Sacramento when LB Ishmael Thrower forced an Evans
fumble just 3 minutes into the game. Brennan
Mallery scooped up the ball, and when Terrence Lee scored from 6 yards out 2
plays later the Panthers had the early lead.
Then Evans went to work. His
6-yard pass to Brockenbrough brought the Rams even just 2 minutes later, and his
4-yard TD pass to Kellen Taylor gave CCSF a 14-7 lead at the end of the 1st
Early through the 2nd quarter, Sacramento's Ty Johnson and
Brockenbrough went up for an Evans pass and this time it was the Panther who
made the play. Johnson's
interception gave the ball back to the Sac City offense, and less then 3 minutes
later Terrence Lee scored from 3 yards out to even the game at 14.
Evans and Brockenbrough got a measure of revenge when they hooked up on a
40-yard scoring pass on the next possession.
That gave CCSF the lead they would never relinquish. A 32-yard field goal by Richard Heintz just before halftime
gave the Rams a 24-14 lead at intermission.
Then SF took the opening kickoff and drove the length of the field.
Evans' 4th TD pass of the day, a 19-yarder to Brockenbrough,
gave SF a 30-14 lead and apparent control of the game.
But Sacramento wasn't through yet. Lamar Lee found Kevin Swanigan for a 53-yard TD pass less
than a minute later, and Terrence Lee took the ball in for the 2-point
conversion to make it a one-score game again at 30-22.
However, that would be as close as Sacramento would get.
As the 3rd quarter progressed, CCSF relied on the running of
Johnnie Mack to wear down the Panther defense and keep control of the ball.
Mack carried 12 times for 110 yards in the third quarter, and CCSF kept
the ball for nearly 11 minutes of the quarter. Evans also joined in the running attack in the 3rd
quarter, scoring twice to put the game out of reach.
Evans capped the day with a 5th TD pass, this one to Zack
Fletcher, early in the 4th quarter to close out the scoring.
For Sacramento, QB Lamar Lee threw for 210 yards and a TD without throwing an interception. However, the Panther rushing attack had just one carry longer than 9 yards and ended the day with only 33 yards on 25 carries. That allowed too much time on the field for the defense, and CCSF rolled up 571 yards of total offense on the afternoon.
