LAKE BALBOA – Birmingham Charter High football team held a two touchdown lead in the first half of their non-league game against Westchester High on Friday.

But the Patriots weren’t too happy with the turn of events.

Turnover in attack. Missed tackles in defense. Minor penalties at both ends.

That prompted Patriots wide receiver Arlis Boardingham to put quarterback David Jordan-Oliveros aside for a conversation.

The defense held on and the offense kicked in in the second half as Birmingham won their first game of the season with a 33-0 win over Westchester at Birmingham High.

“Anytime you get a shutout it’s good for defense, but I think we played at a level six or seven tonight,” Birmingham coach Jim Rose said. “We have to pick it up if we are to progress. This is our goal.

The Patriots (1-5 overall) earned their first victory of the season after opening their first five games against opponents in the Southern Section. Westchester (1-4) was their first City section opponent.

“It makes us hungry,” Boardingham said. “We love this victory, but we were not satisfied. We knew we could have done better. We know that in the future we have bigger goals ahead of us.

Boardingham, who received offers from Texas and USC, caught four passes for 78 yards and two touchdowns.

Jordan-Oliveros completed 9 of 13 passes for 164 passing yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

Birmingham took the lead in game two of their first practice of the game after Jordan-Oliveros completed a 27-yard pass to Boardingham.

After Jordan-Oliveros ‘second pass was intercepted in the Patriots’ second practice, his third pass attempt was a 14-yard touchdown to Dante Holly for a 14-0 lead that held until halftime. .

Still, the elder believed he had missed some opportunities.

“We all said we have to play better because it’s the Patriot way,” Jordan-Oliveros said. “The coaches supported us. Arlis is a great mentor. He’s up there for a reason. He was just telling me to stay calm and go out relaxed.

The defense continued to hang on and forced a Westchester safety late in the third for a 19-0 lead at Birmingham.

When Jordan-Oliveros took over on offense, he threw his third touchdown pass to Peyton Waters with 0:17 left in the third and extended Birmingham’s lead to 26-0.

The Patriots’ defense forced another turnover on the downs, which Jordan-Oliveros turned into an 18-yard touchdown pass to Boardingham to cap the score.
