HAYWARD -- The visiting Titans (1-1) scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and didn't look back in a nonleague win.

"We just wanted to come out and better ourselves and make up for what we did in the past," said Kennedy junior Kaleem Abubakari, referring to last week's 18-13 loss to San Lorenzo in which the Titans allowed a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. On Friday, Abubakari rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter, and finished with a career-high 204 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Teammate Derek Slater added 126 yards rushing in the game and the first two touchdowns of the game. Kennedy led 22-0 at the end of the first quarter.

On the first play from scrimmage in the game, Abubakari ran for 45 yards to the Mt. Eden 5. Slater rushed up the middle for a touchdown on the next play, giving the Titans a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Mt. Eden (1-1) was paced in rushing by Tookey Stevenson, who had 72 yards including a 48-yard touchdown.
