A 25-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Timothy Walsh to Joseph Henriquez and a two-point conversion run by Walsh lifted the Cardinals (1-6, 1-2) to their first win of the year, knocking off the Tigers (1-6, 1-2) Friday night at Cantwell-Sacred Heart.
The Tigers had taken a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when Tigers quarterback Brady Martinez scored from a yard out. Running back David Fuentez led the Tigers on the ground with 129 yards on 24 carries.
Alhambra 53, Keppel 20
The Jerry DeSantis era at Alhambra got off to a good start as the Moors (3-4, 1-1) continued the Aztecs’ (0-7, 0-2) winless streak Friday night at Keppel High’s Aztec Stadium.
The Moors took a 47-0 lead before the Aztecs got on the board with a 12-yard run with 39 seconds left in the half. Ezra Broadus and Sebastian Espinoza each scored twice in the first quarter as the Moors built a 35-0 lead after the first. Quarterback Armando Amaya completed only three of six passes in the game but all three were touchdown throws in the first quarter, two to Espinoza and one to Joseph Nieto.
Arcadia 49, Glendale 7
The Apaches (3-4, 3-1) had little trouble in defusing the Nitros (1-6, 0-4) to take sole possession of second place in the Pacific League with their win Friday night at Arcadia High’s Apache Stadium.
Jake Medel and Sheldon McKinley were responsible for all seven touchdowns. Medel scored five touchdowns as part of his 202 yards on 20 carries, while McKinley carried only five times for 121 yards, but two of those carries were scores of 71 and 40 yards.
After getting a 35-0 lead at halftime, McKinley’s second score of the game, the 41-yard run, increased the lead to 42-0 and brought out a running clock for the remainder of the game.
