Rosemead, CA – It didn’t take Rosemead long to assert itself against Warren, and it didn’t take long for local eyes to realize the Panthers have something more than a strong defense, but also a heartbeat offense.

Mead scored twice during a two minute stretch in the first quarter to build a 14-0 lead over the visiting Bears and took a 35-7 victory on Friday night at Marinelli Stadium.

The first Rosemead score came in traditional fashion; a 51-yard march, using eight plays, that hit a crescendo when Phillip Luong went in from 8-yards with 8:18 to play in the opening quarter.

Two minutes later quarterback Everardo Camacho flexed his arm strength and went 74-yards over the top to Oscar Noriega and the Panthers led 14-0.

“We’re a good football team, but we’re young,” said Rosemead HC Marc Paramo. “We’re going to get better.”

Luong made things better with a 5-yard scoring run at the start of the third.

Warren broke through later in the quarter when fullback J.R. Vaautu scored on a fourth and four run from the Mead 19.

With the gap narrowed to 21-7 the Paramo’s defense tightened. Midway through the fourth the Panthers brought the wood and linebacker Dominic Salas recovered and returned a fumble 26-yards to make it 28-7.

In the final minutes Alec Zavala, who had a rough night offensively, broke free and went 55-yards to close the scoring.

Rosemead is now 1-2.Warren remains winless at 0-3.
