GRANDVIEW – Visiting Othello raced out to a 34-0 lead at Grandview last Friday on the way to a 48-13 thumping of the Greyhound football team.
The Huskies had help in getting off to a fast start in Friday’s CWAC tilt, as Grandview surrendered an interception and a blocked punt to set up two Othello scores in the first half.
Othello had the game well in hand, up 48-0, when Grandview finally cracked the scoreboard midway through the fourth quarter.
Greyhound QB Anthony Mendoza tossed a three-yard scoring pass to Eddy Zepeda to account for Grandview’s first score.
With about three minutes to play, Grandview found pay dirt one more time on a six-yard TD scamper by Adam Perez.
With the Greyhounds forced to throw from the get-go thanks to Othello’s early lead, Mendoza and fellow Grandview signal caller Jorge Oros completed a combined 11-of-26 pass attempts for 104 yards.
Brendan Bardwell snagged four of Grandview’s pass completions for a total of 32 yards. Teammate Angel Abarca hauled in three catches for 60 receiving yards.
Grandview’s running attack was paced by Lorenzo Sanchez with 30 yards on four carries. Alex Torres toted the pigskin six times for 25 yards.
Grandview (1-7, 2-7) concludes its season this coming Friday with a home game against Wapato.
“We’ll recognize our seniors,” Coach Rick Ramos said, noting senior football players, band members and cheerleaders will all be honored.
Though the end of the 2013 campaign is in sight, Ramos says his squad isn’t letting up.
“We’ll continue working and see how we can improve,” he said.
