High-school football weekend October 25
Washington 38, Burton 8
Washington High School’s recent loss to Mission appeared to have jolted the Eagles awake, as they executed a stellar first quarter against visiting Burton. In the first 12 minutes, reports local sports website San Fran Preps, Washington scored 32 points and Burton could not respond.
It was Burton’s (2-5, 1-3) inability to hold on to the football that put the Eagles (5-1, 3-1) in control early. Burton quarterback Alex Moreno and the Burton backfield mishandled multiple snaps in the first quarter. …
Washington’s offense was led by running back Jamie McHenry, who ran for 82 yards on nine carries.
After giving up all 38 points against them in the first half, the Puma defense found their footing in the second. …
The Washington defense held strong in the second half, keeping the Puma offense out of the end zone the entire game.
The only Burton points came on a 95-yard kickoff return by Delron Marmen to start the second half.
With the game in hand after the first half, [Washington head coach Karl] Finley stuck to a simple offense to run out the clock.
Mission 26, Lincoln 0
The Lincoln High School Mustangs became the latest team to bump up against the Mission Bears’ crushing defense Friday at Kezar Stadium. Like other teams, the Mustangs came away smarting. And while Lincoln’s own defense did well against the Bears’ normally dependable ground game, the Mustangs just couldn’t score.
Unfortunately for Lincoln, its commitment to stopping the Bears’ ground game resulted in openings in the secondary. Taking advantage was Mission junior quarterback Davon Hargraves, who on a fourth-and-10 connected with Alec Tatum for a 14-yard touchdown to give the Bears a 6-0 first-quarter lead. …
In the second quarter, an impressive run after the catch from Jaleel Stancil capped a 58-yard passing touchdown to put the Bears up 12-0, a lead they would carry into the second half.
Mission broke the game open in the third quarter, when another touchdown pass from Hargraves to Tatum pushed the lead to 20-0. A 60-yard touchdown run from Davonte Gaines just over a minute later all but sealed the win, with Mission’s defense completing yet another impressive outing.
Lincoln is still in search of its first win of the season, a feat it will look to conquer next week against Burton.
Mission, who has outscored AAA opponents 82-13 this season, faces its biggest challenge next week when its defense looks to contain Galileo’s explosive running attack in a game that will give the winner first place outright in the league.
