Dunbar defeats Coolidge for 2011 DCIAA title, 33-21

On December 5, 2011

The Dunbar Crimson Tide avenged last year's loss to HD Woodson defeating the Coolidge Colts 33-21 in the 2011 city championship game played at Eastern High School on a sunny Thanksgiving afternoon.

The Crimson Tide dominated the Colts on the ground racking up 283 yards. Dunbar's defense limited the Colts to 45 rushing yards. Without a solid run game, Coolidge struggled to find rhythm on offense.

Dunbar committed critical turnovers and penalties that ultimately kept the annual Turkey Bowl from being a blowout.

Dunbar's hard-running senior running back Olu Izegwire shined brightest with 234 all-purpose yards. Izegwire caught his first touchdown on 9-yard pass from Lamel Matthews nine minutes into the 1st quarter and returned a punt 71 yards for a TD a few minutes later. The senior runner hit pay dirt again in the 3rd quarter on a 13-yard run, pushing the score to 33-13.

With less than five minutes to play, Coolidge scored on a short pass from Darius Taylor to Fellonte Misher for a final score, 33-21. Freddie Allen/DMVAS/District Chronicles
