Football: Compton Stays Undefeated With Win Over Jordan

The Compton Tarbabes ran their record to a perfect 5-0 with a Moore League-opening win over Jordan, 46-18.

“The goal is just to be able to execute,” said Compton coach Calvin Bryant, whose team is off to its best start since 2008. “All in all we played as a group.”

Niles Hibbert led Compton with 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns, starring on defense as well with an interception and two forced fumbles. Jesse Brew had 115 yards and a touchdown, and Compton had three touchdowns called back.

“Our guys are focused, it feels good to be able to be in this situation,” said Bryant, whose team is one of two teams without a league loss, along with Poly.

Compton will host Millikan next week in a huge matchup between ranked CIF teams.
