A.V. ROLLS TO VICTORY CRENSHAW RUNS FOR THREE TDS A.V. 45, LEUZINGER 22.

Byline: Gideon Rubin Special to the Daily News

LANCASTER - Andre Crenshaw rushed for 180 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries as Antelope Valley rolled up 435 yards of total offense in a 45-22 first-round Southern Section Div. III playoff victory over Leuzinger of Lawndale.

Crenshaw scored on runs of 19, 39 and 35 yards for the Antelopes (8-3), who will play Dominguez of Compton, a 54-0 winner over Crescenta Valley of La Crescenta, in the quarterfinals.

Perennial playoff qualifier Antelope Valley won its first playoff game under second-year coach Jon Fleming, who took over the program for longtime coach Brent Newcomb.

``This is a big win for us and it's a big win for our program,'' Fleming said.

Antelope Valley's Darius Roberts rushed for 77 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries and Allen Mohan gained 85 yards on six carries.

Antelope Valley forced four turnovers (two fumble recoveries, one interception and an onside kick recovery), increasing its season total of takeaways to 37.

Mark Rodgers rushed for 225 yards on 24 carries for Leuzinger (7-4), which was making its first playoff appearance in five years. The Olympians attempted just five passes and had no completions.

The Antelopes had no apparent answer for Rodgers, who rushed for 72 yards on five carries on the Olympians' opening drive before fumbling at the end of a 19-yard run at the Antelope Valley 18.

The Antelopes took advantage, going 82 yards on a 4-play drive highlighted by Mohan's 47-yard run that Crenshaw capped with a 19-yard scoring run.
