Sports briefs Torreys, Knights booted from playoffs — Braxton Burmeister displayed good footwork, but it wasn’t quite enough as the La Jolla Country Day (LJCD) Torreys football team suffered a tough 28-14 defeat at the hands of the Clairemont Chieftans in a CIF Div. IV first-round playoff game played at Country Day Nov. 15.

Burmeister, a 5-foot-11-inch, 185-pound freshman quarterback, scored on touchdown runs of 15 and 14 yards in the first and third quarters, respectively, for LJCD.

Junior kicker Grayson Lyman showed a strong leg for the Torreys, converting successfully on both of his extra point attempts.

With the loss, Country Day concludes their season with an overall record of 5-6.

In other Nov. 15 football action, the Morse Tigers defeated The Bishop’s School Knights by a final score of 56-17 in a CIF Div. III first round playoff game at Morse High School.

Bulla Graft, the Knights’ junior running back, ran the ball robustly, scoring on touchdown runs of 4 and 25 yards in the first and fourth quarters, respectively.

Junior kicker Chris Alleyne exhibited a forceful leg, booming a 35-yard field goal for Bishop’s.

With the loss, the Knights concluded their season with an overall record of 7-4.
