Latin Academy 18, West Roxbury 14

Friday, Oct. 26, 2012, at Dorchester

A week after losing to East Boston by missing a last second-field goal, Latin Academy bounced back by holding off West Roxbury in the fourth quarter. After West Roxbury junior running back Michael Obianigwe (192 yards rushing on 14 carries) scored on a 90-yard TD run to make the score 18-14 with 8:05 to play, Latin Academy fumbled the ball away on the 39-yard line with 3:36 to play. But four plays later West Roxbury turned the ball over on a fumble of its own with 2:06 left and the Dragons ran out the clock. The Dragons (4-4) were led by senior running back Ernest Kellough, who had 69 yards rushing and a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. West Roxbury (3-4) got its first touchdown pass of the season when junior quarterback David Bertucci tossed a 29-yarder to senior wide receiver Jovan Johnson.
